Discover & Collect: Online Art Resources

Introducing the world wide web’s best virtual art galleries: E-commerce may have started as a way to bring consumer goods and fashion to the masses, but it’s grown up quite a bit in the last decade.

Discover & Collect: Online Art Resources

The digital age has ushered in unprecedented access to previously exclusive material, and today art is no exception. A number of innovative websites have broken new ground, creating online platforms that showcase the rich and vast array of art and design the world has to offer. Now, as Berlin Art Week begins, we bring you the cream of the curatorial crop. A glance at these expert websites will make it clear that well curated art is no longer only to be found in galleries – in fact, nowadays, it’s just a mouse-click away.

 

Artsy

From museologists to collectors, students to art-lovers, visitors to Artsy are drawn by both the volume and quality of its database. Comprising 300,000 images of art, architecture and design by 40,000 artists, their online collection spans centuries, and is appreciated in particular as the largest online directory of contemporary art. Powered by the remarkable Art Genome Project, which uses a framework to connect artwork across a range of characteristics, Artsy can be browsed by artist, artwork, show, gallery, museum, fair and auction, making it one of the most comprehensive online art galleries out there.

 

Sleek Art

Curated by a panel of international contributors, Sleek is on one hand a sales platform for contemporary art, and on the other an eclectic resource for delving into the life and work of featured artists. An offshoot of the eponymous progressive art magazine, Sleek offers exclusive insight into the contemporary art world. To find out more, check out our interview with Sleek Art CEO and Sleek Mag publisher Christian Bracht.

Curart

Curart ’s aims are twofold: to bring the work of emerging talent to a wider audience, and to make art more accessible in general. By offering limited edition prints by up-and-coming artists, the online gallery provides a unique platform for those interested in art to engage with curated works in a democratic and unintimidating arena, with the option to purchase collectable pieces at affordable prices.

 

Juniqe

Billing itself as “an antidote to big brand BS,” Juniqe is run by a team of experts across the fields of e-commerce and design, offering a selection of art, apparel and accessories from independent international artists. From font and graphic specialties to printed tees and tech, they want art to be everywhere, and work with quality German manufacturers. Here’s our interview with founder and MD, Lea Lange.

L’Arco Baleno // Pamono

The relaunched, redesigned and renamed Pamono is a collaboration between the design-loving teams behind an earlier version of Pamono and the website L’Arco Baleno. Fusing the concept of an online art gallery with magazine-style content, the new Pamono lets you browse and buy pieces curated from more than 250 designers, over 70 galleries and 20 museums. Their team travels the world, working with cutting edge players from across the art scene, to create one of the most well respected online art platforms around. In addition, their singular concierge service is available for advice on shipping, insurance, condition reports and other related arrangements. We caught up with L'Arco Baleno founder Ambra Medda a two-part interview about the website and her extraordinary (and enviable) lifestyle
