ARTMAZON™ – is a subsidiary of AFRINVESTALLY LTD RC 1342124 and provides an online gallery and a platform for African artists who wish to present their works to Buyers and Collectors on an International Platform.
To represent talented African artists from Africa and its Global Diaspora, working with Artists and Local Galleries achieve success in one of the most exciting, dynamic and challenging areas of the global art scene.
Considering the unprecedented development of the art market over the past few years which has resulted in the ‘financialisation’ of the ART market, Art is now seen not only as an object of pleasure but also as a new alternative asset class with interesting business opportunities.
Financialisation of the ART market
We aim to use digital technology to deploy innovative strategies to explore potential solutions in the art and finance industry, whilst addressing key challenges such as Marketplace Visibility, Transparency, Liquidity, and Valuation. Furthermore, we aim to create a platform for discussion to inform and drive developments in the art and finance industry, whilst fostering direct and indirect art and finance related activities in Africa.
The 2016 -17 Edition of ART & Finance Report by Deloitte Luxembourg and ArtTactic highlight that the Modern & contemporary African Art Market is starting to build momentum and critical mass. But with critical mass comes responsibility and the need for rules and frameworks to ensure that the industry is built on solid foundations. The challenges are many, and the need for a coordinated response across all market stakeholders is now required.
From our research in Lagos, some basic independent ‘In-gallery ART Finance plan’ does exist within a few galleries, however lacking the defining structures to ensure sustainability and growth. Thus, we are inviting stakeholders to join us at the ARTMAZON™ 2018 Lagos Conference to put in place an adequate framework and Legal structures to implement our unique innovation in the Nigerian Art Trade.
By providing robust ART Finance plans for the acquisition of Art on ARTMAZON™ we would be facilitating a sustainable relationship between two intertwined industries and creating the choice Marketplace for the promotion of Modern & contemporary African Art. Inline with increasing volatility in global financial markets and a changing wealth management environment, wealth managers are forced to look beyond traditional investment and wealth management products.
