MARKT IS,
the combination of “art” and “market”.
OUR MISSION
Since 2015, the goal of MARKT is to evolve beyond preceding platforms, to be geared toward the Asian art market. It is to provide what we believe to be the best curated quality Asian contemporary works of art to the western collectors, and to cater for Asian art collectors with exquisite works of art from the other side of the world.
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

MARKT now boasts six years as an online sales platform that has been growing fast with support from the Asian art community. However, it was a time in seclusion and despair for COVID-19 in 2020. We witnessed that most of art sellers all around the globe had to shut down beautiful venues, stop showing what they believe to be the best art, or meet new buyers. To provide a comprehensive and immediate market place, untact but intact, we rebuild our platform with upgraded user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) powered by highly qualified intellectuals and intelligences – our team, partners, curators, artists, and others who have been collaborating with us. We take off once again as ART MARKT ASIA, LTD. to embrace more diverse communities and partners in the art market around the world in 2021. Still, MARKT, transcending time and space, is the most massive and open art market imaginable. Thank you!

2000 – 2010
APPROACHING A REVIVAL IN THE ONLINE TRADE OF ART

Initially, there was a gloomy forecast for online platforms to sell artworks in early 2000 under the assumption that art buyers were not yet ready to buy works based on digital images alone. By the year of 2010, the online businesses, however—fueled by art world celebrities —are once again rapidly shifting to the online platform arena. Partnering with smaller, established galleries and offering millions works of contemporary art from high-end to emerging.

According to The New York Times, the three primary factors for rising online art sales are a broadening base of art collectors around the world; a much greater willingness by these people, both veteran collectors and newcomers, to trust online transactions and buy works after seeing only images of them; and a huge amount of inventory in gallery storehouses, from a growing number of art fairs and other exhibitions leading to more artists creating ever more work.

Dumbo Art Festival in Dumbo, New York in 2007
In the early 2000’s, Sotheby‘s and Amazon.com shut down a jointly operated online auction site and my initial task at Sotheby’s headquarter in New York back then was manually archiving auction records rather than digitizing them. Not to mention art buyers, sellers might have not been ready to trade art online.
2010 – 2014
TAKING ASIAN CONTEMPORARY ART ONLINE
A common thread throughout the most prominent online art-sale platforms is the lack of involvement by Asian local sellers. It has been made exceptionally selective for local dealers and galleries in Asia to partner with existing, highly touted platforms as their artists lack the name recognition or sales records.
Between 2010 and 2014, Mia Jung started consigning Asian contemporary works on the Western art-sale platforms and dozens of Asian contemporary artists who had never been presented in any international venues and galleries were successfully sold. It let her gather and build a highly curated platform working with what we believes to be the best contemporary Asian artists and the most promising rising stars. It is to be a direct and vigorous Asian contemporary art supplier to the clientele.

MARKT is an ideal online platform of Asian contemporary art, aggregating sellers from different places in Asia. It plays an important role for Asian art sellers and international buyers as a place to share information, to communicate with one another, and to browse different artworks directly from local sellers.
2014 – 2019
ART MARKT ASIA HAS GROWN STEADLY 
Collectors of world-class art and other buyers are regularly purchasing artworks after merely viewing high-resolution JPEG images of such works, and more people in a high-tech digital generation are coming to embrace this concept.
Aggregating an inventory of available Asian art works, information regarding Asian art, and manpower from various locations in Asia into one site could benefit both the Asian art world and potential online buyers, especially future art collectors willing to roam from site to site in search of JPEGs of Asian artwork.
“Right now, you have an influx of younger folks who are looking to bridge what they are doing with sites like Twitter and Facebook and Foursquare and all these are companies with their other interests, which include art and paintings and drawings and sculpture.”
