About artmarketspace

artmarketspace is unique in that it specialises in single-artist auctions which hold a greater market appeal and which have far more focus than multi-artist auctions.


Artmarketspace offers reduced vendor commission rates for selling artwork via auction, depending on the value of the artworks. 

The company also holds themed art auctions and individual artwork auctions.

The auction platform features video’s as well as static images, where artworks can be viewed close-up, at distance and in a 360-degree view as well as integrated buyer logistics that are fully automated allowing instant shipping quotes and options to ship nationally or globally.
