The concept of a vibrant, successful online gallery or online marketplace for art is both progressive and often elusive. So when we first learned of Saatchi Online created by the renown Saatchi Gallery in London through our advertising network, we were both skeptical and curious. Thankfully, it turns out that Saatchi Online has alot to offer and is thoughtfully designed. The site blends an online marketplace for art with a range of social network figures to encourage connections between artists and collectors. In addition to various curated spotlight features including ‘Artist of the Week’ and ‘Best of the Week, Saatchi Online also features the inventive ‘Showdown’ art competition in which winners are chosen through a mixture of public voting from the site’s users and a judging panel. The winner and the runner-up receive one thousand dollars and 500 dollars respectively, plus the right to have their work shown at the Saatchi Gallery.
Saatchi Online offers a wide range of art across multiple genres and in price ranges affordable for nearly any collector. Selling art through the site is a win for both the collector and the artist as the site allows the artist to retain over 70% of the purchase price. So if you’re looking for a place to view a wide range of art quickly, with the option to buy securely and with confidence, Saatchi Online is worth the visit.
