Art: More Than Just a Painting
The developments in science and technology have always been on a par with the advancements in art, whether as a reaction to or a prediction of society’s achievements.
Meanwhile, it should come as no surprise that, as the rest of the country’s businesses grow more reliant on the internet, the art world will follow, suit, and adapt to the new environment.
And people should buy Australian art as they buy other luxuries.
It was reported in 2019 that 35 percent of the art purchasers said that they frequent online art and collectibles, where they can buy art directly online, a few times each week.
This was an increase over the previous year’s figure of 29 percent. And a further finding was that 29 percent of millennial art purchasers indicated they prefer to purchase art online, compared to 14 percent a year earlier.
There are several possibilities that the digital age provides for artists and art enthusiasts who can transcend conventional means of selling and buying and have access to more than they ever had before with fewer constraints, thanks to the internet.
So, here are the top five advantages of shopping online:
1. Convenience Is Number One
It is faster and more convenient to buy Australian art online than any other approach. You are not required to attend exhibitions, roam around art fairs, or stand in line at auctions.
Experienced art collectors who already know which artists to follow may deal swiftly and effectively, whilst novice art purchasers can spend more time looking at artists’ works and experiences from the comfort of their own homes rather than going to a gallery.
Moreover, purchasing from a gallery requires a lot of time, but purchasing online does not.
2. Access to a More Information and a More Significant Number of Artists
Unlike many galleries in the Land Down Under, where you are just handed a single piece of paper with information on an exhibition, the internet is a treasure mine of knowledge that never ends.
As such, identifying and following artists who interest you may open the door to discovering others from areas you might otherwise never have had the opportunity to visit.
You’ll have access to all of the background information you need to make an educated selection, and the work will be delivered directly to your home or office.
3. Avoid Intimidation at All Costs
Purchasing artwork from a gallery in Australia may be a daunting experience, especially for first-time collectors. But, by buying artwork online, you may avoid the pressure of a sales pitch from a gallery.
4. Transparency in Pricing
Many galleries in Kangaroo Country do not display the costs of their artwork, so you will need to enquire individually.
As such, you may fall in love with a piece of art before inquiring about its price, only to discover that it is far more expensive than you had anticipated.
In addition, asking for the price puts a degree of pressure on the collector, who must choose right now. But with online art, you can see how much a piece is worth immediately, allowing you to keep inside your financial constraints.
5. Convenience in the Delivery Process
Have you ever purchased a piece of art from a gallery in Australia and then regretted having to transport it to your home carefully? Meanwhile, by buying artwork online, you can be confident that it will be sent directly to your home, professionally packaged, and fully insured.
