Online Art: Artsia, First Curated Fine Art Marketplace

The artist-buyer relationship got complicated after the era of commissioned works came to a close. Once artists moved from structured portraiture and landscapes into realms of their own inspiration, buyers had to physically move from gallery to gallery to find what they were looking for.

The introduction of the internet seemed to offer a solution, but the “mega websites” that have sprung up since have been comprised of everything from scribbles to pornography, since there are usually no standards for what qualifies as professionally created art.

Attempting to bridge this ever-growing divide between professional artists and their buyers comes the official launch of Artsia, the world’s first curated fine art marketplace showcasing thousands of works from the Society of International Artists from more than 500 artists around the globe.

I was brought on as Artsia’s editor in August, and am just thrilled to be promoting all of these wonderfully talented individuals. We’re trying to help facilitate the relationship between artist and buyer by protecting both, creating a platform that allows for communication and information. Each artist is hand-selected and given their own blog on the site, which lets viewers discover the face behind the canvas and see the thought processes behind their favorite pieces. The artists can also be contacted directly through the site, with individual profile pages allowing for easy navigation to various social media profiles.

We currently have 492 original works of abstract art on our site, and our Fine Art Prints program lets everyone – large and small budgets alike – participate in art connoisseurship. I began writing about art three years ago on my own personal blog, ThingsWorthDescribing, where I focus on making art and beauty simple and for everyone. Artsia lets me advance this guiding principle even further, as I work towards making art and the art world more approachable and democratic.

Lindsey Davis, (Editor, Artsia)


When Lindsey Davis contacted me some weeks ago proposing to write a guest post at yasoypintor I was exited. After analyzing what Artsia does, I accepted. I´ve seen several online art marketplaces where abstract artists can sell their paintings (which is always good), but Artsia´s overall concept and quality makes it different. Do you agree?.
