Tips for Buying Abstract Art Online

Posted by Fizdi India on November 22nd, 2018

If you are wanting to buy abstract art, you are lucky to have thousands of choices at your fingertips. There are many modern paintings for sale that you can easily search and purchase today, even if it’s after normal gallery hours. These unique paintings are not only from your community, but are available from all over the world. For this, you can thank the computer age.

The computer age has brought many changes in our culture. Today, people are banking online, buying toasters and video games online, renting movies online, and searching for homes online. It is understandable that the typical brick and mortar art galleries would see changes as well. Why are these changes beneficial–and how can you benefit?

For the artist, the internet has brought the ability to reach large numbers of interested buyers from all over the world, without even leaving their studios. It is a situation that most galleries cannot provide. Also, because galleries normally charge around 40% gallery fee to the artist, many artists are finding (especially in this economy) that they are able to earn more selling directly to their collectors. Also, many galleries work on a weekly or monthly cycle, so artists sometimes have to wait 30 days for payment. Many artists are choosing to sell online because they are paid immediately. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love galleries and have my work in many of them. But, for many artists, being invisible online means that they are losing many potential fans of their work who wouldn’t see it if they live in another state or country.

For the art purchaser, the internet has brought choices and a better purchase environment. Now, you can browse art online instead of gallery hopping in one community at a time. Of course, art always looks better in person–and there’s definitely a place for galleries–but now you can see many more styles which help you pick out the perfect painting for your home. If you are needing to make a purchase quickly, you aren’t limited to your neighboring cities’ galleries. Now you can see art from all over the world. Also, purchasing online gives you a chance to talk directly to the artist about having a piece commissioned or even to haggle a little. Most artists will lose patience with extreme low-balling, but sometimes you would be surprised to find out that an artist will go down on the price of a second piece if you have purchased one at full price. Another great benefit of buying abstract art online is because you can use Photoshop to take a jpeg of the art and place it in a jpeg of the room you are considering. This makes it easy to see what the piece will look like–and this is hard to visualize in a gallery setting. If you don’t know how to do this just ask the artist. Many use Photoshop and will gladly do it for you if it means they will have a potential sale.
