my-artmap now provides an international sales platform embedded in its
social arts network
Dealers can display their items in their own shop to a global audience
A revolution for collectors and dealers alike
BAMBERG, Germany, Nov. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - The social art network,
my-artmap, provides a shopping system for artists, galleries, dealers
and auction houses and is able to reach art lovers worldwide.
"The link between a social network aimed at the arts target group and a global marketplace is fantastic. We are excited by
this idea, because we can now show our items directly to the correct
target group and avoid losses from non-selective advertising," says Frank Fluegel, Owner of the renowned Galerie Fluegel-Roncak, which
as well as offering numerous works by well-known pop artists, is also
offering the original work "Fata" by Mel Ramos (150,000 euros) via
It has so far been possible to befriend other members on my-artmap in
the same way as on Facebook and to discuss international arts events
and market news. This has now changed. Contemporary arts by Warhol,
Rizzi and Lichtenstein will be offered for sale along with jewellery,
watches and paintings by old masters from the 15th - 18th century. Prices range from 20 euros to 150,000 euros, indicating the
wide range of items available on the platform.
In recent weeks, the company's founders, have entered into numerous
co-operation agreements with jewellers, galleries, jewellery dealers
and art dealers.
"It is particularly the mix of established dealers and young artists
that is so unique. We would like to interest traditional collectors in
works by modern artists and show young collectors fascinating items
from the 16th or 17th century. After all, there is one thing that unites all art lovers: a
love of beautiful things - and this is precisely where we forge our links!" says Stefan Sebök, who was involved in the international art market as
an auctioneer before founding my-artmap.
