Me Art has become one of the first in the world to offer budding art enthusiasts a way to view and buy art simultaneously, across physical and virtual gallery spaces. Following the successful launch of its virtual gallery in June this year, the dealership has now launched a physical space to allow customers to see art in person too.
The dealership has also launched their second exhibition across both platforms which runs until 12 December, and contains prize artworks from a range of prominent artists like Mr Brainwash, Keith Harring, Jean-Michael Basquiat, and Richard Hambleton.
The merchants are positive that their virtual-first service, alongside growth in consumer preferences towards buying high-value items online, will assist them to challenge traditional galleries, who are loaded with multiple operational outgoings.
“consumers have been transitioning towards buying items online for a long period of time now, even for luxury items and highly valued items. Covid-19 has simply accelerated this trend. Traditional art players, more often than not, have been affected badly by Covid-19 and transition. Me Art noticed this movement early on, so created a high-quality virtual gallery experience for customers to browse the art via their chosen technology from the comfort of their own homes.” – Gallery owner, Joseph Lewis
