Who we are
COLLWEB ART is a presentation platform which provides insights into the fascination of art and the creative process leading to great works of art.
COLLWEB ART allows the direct contact and the flexible negotiations of the purchase conditions between potential buyers and artists or galleries.
Since we aim to support artists and galleries in such difficult times, you do not pay any commissions or fees which are as high as 50% on other platforms.
At COLLWEB ART, we aim to highlight the importance of creativity in life. We present the stories of creative people, their inspiration and motivation. We encourage artists and galleries to present their original art works to a like-minded community of art lovers and to share background information about techniques and their experiences in the art world, leading to new inspiration for their own work.
COLLWEB ART invites contributions from a wide variety of artistic fields including painting and drawing, sculpture, photography, digital art, design and video production.
