IndianArtCollectors, founded in 2005, has been the largest and most innovative online art platform in the country. We are strong believers in the transformational power of technology and have long been the pioneering art entity in the country; bringing together artists, collectors, dealers, galleries and resellers onto a single powerful online platform. With a state of the art user experience, and a leading edge art portal backed by some amazing analytics and data, we transform the art shopping experience, empower artists, and provide a huge convenience for those who wish to re-sell their art.
Founded a decade ago, IndianArtCollectors was ahead of its time, bringing to the art world a number of ‘firsts’. It was the first platform to democratize the art buying process, while also empowering the artist; the first platform with a completely transparent pricing and purchase process; the first platform to proactively help collectors re-sell their art. It was the first portal to bring on board galleries and dealers, art critics and writers alike – to bring art to every home. It is now also the first art portal in the country to be backed by cutting-edge technology and data to drive its unique art selection and display process.
Today, IndianArtCollectors is focused on partnering with every art entity, in a multitude of ways. We are driving this participative action by connecting people through technology and by creating a world around art that everyone can relate to. We want everyone to be a part of this art movement.
