  1. 1. PRESS RELEASE November 2013 ARTISTICS.COM A new web platform for buying art without even knocking on a gallery door Dedicated to the promotion of living artists and the sales of their works on line, Artistics.com sets itself the objective to spearhead the digitalization of the art market, thus satisfying a whole new generation of collectors. A recent study produced by ArtTactic claimed that "in a world where all kinds of markets are being transformed by technology and online trading, the art market is no exception." Answers given by art professionals suggested "that there is a new generation of art buyers emerging that are willing to use online channels when buying art." It was very much in this context that the site Artistics.com was conceived. The objective? To enable art lovers - amateur and professional - to discover new artists and buy their work in a few clicks, and in total confidence. The platform is based on two founding principles: • First, to re-establish a direct link between the buyer and the artist, so as to put back all the importance of this encounter into the joy of collecting. Therefore, in a short video the buyer can enter the workshops of each artist. The artist describes his approach, in his own words, and exhibits his own style of creation. • Second, to guarantee a first class client service so as to instill the level of confidence necessary to the purchasing of artwork online. The buyer benefits from a personalized telephone advice service before and during his purchase. A completely secure service reigned by a 14-Day money-back guarantee (EU only). The artworks can be shipped worldwide, direct from the artist's workshop. Beyond these initial choices and facing the numerous stakes the development of the online art trade entails, Artistics.com sees itself as an experimental laboratory, both flexible and reactive, striving in the course of its development to anticipate the needs of a new breed of art lovers while supporting the work of the artists. At this stage, the platform represents a dozen artists, of mixed nationalities, for the most part independent. They are sculptors (Pierre Yermia, Marine de Soos…) painters (Hongyu Zhang, Jonathan Shearer…) photographers (Christian Houge) or ceramists (François Debien). All were selected for the maturity of their approach, which reflects both an authentic research into aesthetics and a masterly skill of their medium of predilection. Many other artists will join them in the months to come offering a diversity of several thousand works of art. For further information please write to presse@artistics.com
