If you’re an artist or into collecting art, you’ll know only too well the frustrations that are associated with buying or selling art in the traditional way - whether it’s the pretty hefty commission fees that auction houses charge or the fact that some of the better known online auction options don’t necessarily cater for the right market. Well, our latest Startup of the Week is hoping to change all that.
artFido is an online sales and auction platform for everyday collectors, to browse, search for, and buy and sell art.
The platform is aimed at a broad spectrum of users - individual buyers and sellers of art, galleries and of course artists themselves. As a potential buyer of art, the search and filter functionality within artFido makes the whole process so much easier. You can search for art in a whole host of ways including by style, by subject matter, by size, by price or even by colour.
In our opinion, any platform which helps to raise the profile of artists and enables them to connect directly with potential and interested buyers has to be a good thing. The whole ethos and mission of artFido is something that we wholly support here at Startacus. If art is your thing, we reckon you should check it out too…
