News Blaze reported about a new social platform for artists and art lovers called TheArtistFinder.com.
TheArtistFinder.com, as the name implies, is a site where you can browse at the work of artists worldwide, click on the artist whose work catches your eye, and get information (links to sites) on where you can buy that artist’s work or contact that artist.
According to BoundlessGallery.com/TheArtistFinder.com President Luke Terpstra the website is designed to “to support original artists online.” He also says that the “online marketplace [is] changing from the old guard of big one-stop shops like eBay and Amazon, to a new order where the actual site you buy from matters less than finding the perfect product. “ Since artists usually have their works displayed/scattered on different websites, consumers have to either hunt down each site to be able to view their favourite artists’ works before deciding on which artwork to buy or settle for the handful of choices available in the current site they are on. This is why TheArtistFinder is very useful because it gives consumers a convenient way of finding all the other available works of the artist they like. No more need to use search engines to hunt artists’ works down since they have a one-stop shop where they can find all the contact details they need.
As you can see social platforms are getting the nod from all kinds of industries, now including the art industry. With this development we can only wait and see how else social platforms will be used.
