Our Story

The world of Contemporary Art is above all international – and so is findartglobally.com. Our story begun in 2014 with an idea to develop a global art store and a community for artists. We connect professional artists and art enthusiasts, making art easier to find globally.

We want our website to serve artists as well as it can, and therefore artists’ ideas and views were an important part of the development process. Our website offers artists an international community and artist’s residence opportunities, but above all a clear, curated platform for displaying art. We hope that the features our website offers can lead to new, international collaborations and provide inspiration for new creative work.

We wanted to surprise visitors with a monthly art raffle, which is open to all. While taking part in the raffle, you can easily find out more about the artist who created the work you are hoping to win.

After a long development process, we finally launched our website in 2017. Despite our young age, we wish to develop our website further by bringing out new, innovative services and features for our members and visitors. We already have new, exciting and useful features to introduce in 2018!
