PURPOSE

 

Help artists create curation videos of their artwork allowing them to tell their story.

 
 
 

PROBLEM

 

We are looking to create sustainable ways for artists to create art while being able to survive as an artist.

We want to democratize the art industry bringing more art into the lives of more homes. 

The videos will be used to increase the visibility of the artists and help them curate their work to the world by telling the story of the art. 

We are hoping the videos help the artists place their work into galleries or sell the individual pieces after we promote them.

 
 
 

SOLUTION

 

ArtandMe recently launched a free eCommerce platform for artists to sell their work online for free. This tackled the problem created by galleries and other online platforms which charge up to a 60% commission on the sale of a painting.

The next challenge is to enable artists to curate their work online via videos created in partnership with the artist so they can tell their story to the world.
