Decorating a home can be a daunting task, and selecting the perfect art for your space is a most complicated necessity. Art is personal, and finding your individual style is difficult enough without the stress of purchasing a piece. The art world has needed a modern update for some time, and it’s finally arrived. Redefining traditional methods of buying and selling fine art is Saatchi Art, the world’s current leading online art gallery for emerging artists. Saatchi Art holds one of the largest selections of original art, with pieces from over 110,000 emerging artists, making it impossible to walk away empty-handed. The online art gallery has an incredible selection of drawings, paintings, sculptures, and photographs, as well as advisory by industry professionals and a commissionable art program for clients looking for a custom piece.
As Rebecca Wilson (Chief Curator at Saatchi Art) puts it, “For centuries people have been commissioning artists to make new works of art. It’s a great way both to support artists and to purchase a work that is specific to your requirements. At Saatchi Art, we can work with artists on commissions of all kinds – paintings, drawings, limited edition photographs and sculptures. If you see an artwork on Saatchi Art that has sold, or you find a work you love but it isn’t the right size or color, or you would like an artist to paint a particular subject, we can work with you and the artist on a new commission that fits exactly what you are looking for.”
Before Saatchi Art, the process of discovering individual style, finding an artist whose work resonates with you, and selecting a piece that works perfectly in your space was a tedious task. Art is something to keep and cherish forever, and requires significant thought to select the perfect piece. Saatchi Art allows the process to be condensed into one website, without sacrificing quality. This online art gallery is still a luxury experience, but it streamlines the art-buying process to become something enjoyable rather than a time-consuming chore. Scrolling through pages of beautiful one-of-a-kind works, it is easy to imagine pieces in your home and get a sense of what you like. Not only does Saatchi Art have an astonishing selection of artists from over 100 countries, but the website also offers free advisory services to help you navigate the selection; the process is both elevated and accessible. If you have ever felt intimidated by the art world, Saatchi Art makes it welcoming and seamless, with an expert hand to guide you towards a brilliantly decorated space. If the impeccably curated selection does not meet your needs, Saatchi Art makes it possible for clients to directly commission artists to create a piece just for them. If you have a specific color, style, or even a piece you love that you want to replicate, this commissionable art program is ideal for you. Saatchi Art curators will assist by working with artists on your behalf to create the art piece of your dreams, whether it be a painting, sculpture, or limited edition photograph.
Not only is Saatchi Art incredibly useful for the buyer, but it is a great way for emerging artists to exhibit and sell their work. This online gallery is a fantastic tool for both buyer and artist, giving thousands of artists exposure and creating one of the only online spaces where clients can browse such an expansive selection of pieces. Saatchi Art is truly a one-stop destination for all of your fine arts needs, and once you’ve experienced the ease and quality that this online gallery provides you won’t ever want to go back to the traditional art-buying methods.
