Last week the Tasgmart team took a trip to Angel to check this year’s edition of the London Art Fair. The fair showcases a selection of art from the best galleries from around the world. You can see art by established artists as well as discover new talents and emerging names from the artworld.
From the 131 galleries that participated, these are our highlights…
Cataloguing your work is a very important aspect of being an artists and we can help you and ArtGoda chooses Tagsmart to do it.
In this video Goda Smilingyte (founder of Art Goda) explains the 5 things every artists must do before he or she starts selling the artworks.
The art market is unusual. It’s a vast $64bn market (The Art Market 2018, Art Basel & UBS Report) that is highly fragmented, despite a set of wildly successful and world-famous institutions including Sotheby’s, Christies and ‘mega-galleries’ such as the Gagosian, David Zwirner, Pace and Hauser & Wirth.
Our Connect service, putting our artists directly in touch with online retailers, is live! One hundred and six artists have already joined up to submit works...and we're celebrating Damaris' work as it was the first to be selected for sale.
According to the Hiscox Online Art Trade Reports 2016/2017, 58% of online collectors are afraid of buying a fake: 88% want standardised Certificates of Authenticity, and 79% want better provenance information.
Consequently, according to our advisor Philip Mould, “there is an increasing need to inject security and confidence into the art market."
Collectors are increasingly acquiring online, sight unseen. This sector is boosted by changing demographies and also by increasing propensity for artists and galleries to sell online. Repeated reserach has shown that online buyers increasingly see art as an investement/asset class and are deterred by trust issues.
We are currently working on a new service. The new online development will be the first platform to enable the trade of trusted art online through a revolutionary B2B artwork aggregation service. Artists will be able to submit trusted art, pre-tagged and with a Certificate of Authenticity, directly to online retailers. It will launch in September 2018 with the support of leading and emerging artists registered on the Tagsmart platform who will offer their works for sale.
Further announcement of retailer partners will be made in the coming weeks.
