Lee Steer:
CEO and Co-founder
 
After approximately a decade in management roles at Reuters in London, New York and Tokyo (where 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.
