ARTJAWS, A FRENCH MARKETPLACE DEDICATED TO ARTIST
Successfully launched in December 2015 by the start-up Art2M after an initial investment fund of 500,000 euros from AXA Strategic Ventures, ArtJaws [www.artjaws.com] is an online art sales platform that offers artworks selected by exhibition curators and acquisition consulting services. The first collections focus on popular arts: digital and outsider art, giving collectors and investors the opportunity to acquire works by artists whose reputation is on the rise.
As France’s first marketplace dedicated to artists, ArtJaws targets the international art market, offering buyers direct access to artworks and artists who are icons of pop culture and digital arts. The website is currently bilingual in French and English, and by late 2016 will also be available in Arabic, in order to develop sales and its network of collectors based in the Middle East and the Arab-speaking world.
For the first time, ArtJaws is making accessible to a wider public artworks that are rarely seen in traditional distribution channels, featuring limited editions and world exclusives from international artists.
