Artsy x Leblon Delienne: the art market in the digital age
In the digital age, art is created, viewed and distributed differently. Beyond the techniques, art is subject to a real digital influence through its exposure on social networks, with the positive consequence of reaching a wider audience.
Launched in the United States in 2009, the Artsy platform aims to offer art lovers and collectors another way to access contemporary art, by offering authenticated artworks on the Internet that they can purchase and receive in a few clicks.
Artsy invites its customers to follow the pages of the museums, galleries and artists of their choice like a social network. Each work offered for sale is accompanied by a precise description, a biographical insert on its artist and a panel presenting other similar works likely to please them.
The secret of Artsy's success lies in the close collaboration that the platform maintains with art professionals.
Indeed, the collection includes thousands of artworks from art galleries, museums, private collections or foundations from all over the world, from London to New York, from Paris to Shanghai and from Johannesburg to Sao Paulo.
Artsy is used by art lovers, benefactors and collectors.
Leblon Delienne joined the platform a few years ago by creating its virtual gallery on which it exhibits its creations.
