While sectors such as the food and beverage industry are still making attempts to recover from the adverse effects of the pandemic, the global demand for art has been on the rise. And when it comes to the local art market, the Managing Director of Singapore-based art gallery and boutique advisory firm Art Works Group, Troy Sadler, has reasons to be optimistic.

One of the possible reasons for the rise in global demand for art is the larger amount of time that people have been spending at home – there have simply been more opportunities and reasons for people to spruce up the spaces that they have to rest and work in. And art is always a great way for homeowners to express themselves.

Art Works is a company that aims to help these homeowners achieve their goals. With social distancing very much a requirement in recent times, the firm launched an online gallery in March. Pivoting to the digital landscape has become an important part of today’s business model and even the art industry has had to adapt to the new norm. Art Works’ online gallery features contemporary art, fine art and investment-grade pieces in a carefully curated collection.

“The works we deal in are 99 per cent contemporary and oil-on-canvas paintings. We carry a range of international artists from Europe, the US and Asia,” says Sadler.

The aim of the online gallery is to make art accessible to everyone by making the process of buying art less intimidating, especially to those who might believe that art is reserved for the elite – even though art is intersecting with popular culture more than ever before today.
