The Online Art World

As you’ve likely read, the multi-billion dollar online art market has been heating up. Retailing giant Amazon recently joined the art space but leading the way is our very own ROC Santa Monica tenant, Saatchi Online.

Originally part of London’s famed Saatchi Gallery, Saatchi Online launched in Los Angeles in 2011 as a stand-alone online art marketplace. Today, it represents tens of thousands of emerging artists from over 100 countries, giving people the opportunity to easily discover and buy original art from around the globe.

Whether or not you have developed an appreciation for art, simply looking at art is said to be one of the best ways to reduce stress. Beyond that, art has the power to calm the senses, stimulate the brain, inspire creativity, and best of all – it speaks all languages.

Linked as they are by a common mission to support creative professionals, it’s no wonder that Saatchi Online and ROC Santa Monica have come together to bolster the efforts of entrepreneurs and emerging artists.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “every artist was once an amateur,” and we’d add that before there was fire there was a spark. The relationship between art and entrepreneurship reminds us—no matter our industry—that we all share the kindred fire of inspiration; we simply need room to breathe and our fires stoked every once in a while.
