It hasn’t been long since we relaunched this amazing place to share our art. In just 4 short months, our community of artists has grown more than 500%. You have invigorated this community and given new life to Saatchi Online.
I want to tell you about an exciting new feature we’re releasing today.
The main goal of Saatchi Online is to help create sustainable careers for artists, by promoting art work, helping to find buyers for your work and ultimately providing the opportunity to make more. In mid-March Saatchi Online will become a social marketplace helping you to sell original works of art and printed canvas. In preparation for this we have changed the upload process and added some tools to help you get your art work ready to sell. We’ve added fields in the upload process to include things such as shipping weight, dimensions, framing options, category, subject, medium, price selection and materials used.
As an artist on the site, your participation in the market place is entirely optional. You are welcome to fully participate in the community and maintain a large and vibrant portfolio without ever selling your work or making any financial obligation. However, if this is what you’ve been waiting for, we hope that what we have created will help to make it an easy, reliable, safe and rewarding process.
