Our story

Artworks is your local art guide. We want to make it super-easy and a bit more fun for you to experience the art scene. A new breeding ground for new art lovers and collectors.The concept grew from running a small but quite popular arts and business magazine, Artworks Journal.

It doesn’t require a rocket scientist to establish that few industries have defied the digital revolution quite like the primary art market. While new technology and digital innovations have forced the television, film, music and media industries to rethink their business models, the art market seems impervious to the ascent of digital opportunities.

The online space has also changed the way we experience, exchange ideas and talk about things. No longer is public discussion limited to the artist, the curator or the newspaper critic; there is now a vast array of voices engaged in the debate around art and the public audience has an active part in this discussion.

We realised that many people felt the same way and just didn’t know where to turn to find information about art and art events that did not relate browsing the local newspapers, Google or tips from friends and family.
