About artmarketspace

artmarketspace allows a buyer to create a personal connection to the artist through our Unique Video Experiences (UVE), seeing the art work close-up, at distance, in a 360-degree view, or by listening to the artist discuss the inspiration they drew upon to create the works.   The UVE also provides consumers with trust: “What you see is what you get”.  The buyer might even get a tour of the artist’s studio from their artist profile!    

To help provide buyers with even more confidence, all works come with validations (Certificates of Authenticity, if available, and Condition Reports if necessary).  Logistics is integrated and fully automated so that buyers and sellers can ship around the world.  For shipment within Australia, insurance is included up to a value of $30,000.00. There is also a 7-day cooling off period, so if buyers are not happy with the work after they receive it, it can be returned.

Lee Steer:

Co-founder and CEO of artmarketspace.

 

After approximately a decade in management roles at Reuters in London, New York and Tokyo (where he actually he first conceived the concept of artmarketspace), Lee left the fast world of the financial markets to establish an art gallery. He spent 10 years as founder and director of REDSEA Gallery in Brisbane, finding, nurturing and representing artists locally and internationally.

Noticing a shift in the art world and concerned about the number of galleries having to shut their doors, as well as the high commissions artists needed to pay to galleries in order for the gallery system to remain viable, Lee realised that the way forward for the art world was the internet and global online art platforms.  Wanting to be able to put more money into the pockets of artists, give them a global audience for their work, and provide art lovers with unprecedented access to art from well outside their local areas Lee closed his gallery doors to establish artmarketspace as a trusted global art platform for artists and art lovers, galleries and collectors alike.

The Way Art Should Be

For artists, artmarketspace provides the opportunity for work to be represented and exhibited to a national and global audience and, when works sell, the commission charged is much lower.  Our exclusive Premium feature ensures that artists with a proven track record are immediately recognised, providing even further validation for buyers.  For artists with gallery representation, there are unique opportunities for the artist and their gallery to collaborate with artmarketspace and broaden the reach of exhibitions.

For sellers, artmarketspace is the destination where you can re-sell a personal art collection at the works’ true value, without the heavy discounting that the auction system demands.  There will be no costs incurred unless the works are sold, and there is no need for you to move the works for sale, avoiding unnecessary risk and cost.  When your works sell, the costs are greatly lower. 

artmarketspace has been built to make the global art world more accessible and more transparent.  “The Way Art Should Be”
