Now, this is exclusively for all those who have a voracious appetite for art! Akin to the other global platforms, this new social networking site for artists christened as www.myartinfo.com will be allowed artists to showcase their work, chat with each other online, and blog. A Canadian publisher and philanthropist have launched this new networking site for artists, underlining the growing influence of the Internet in showcasing and selling art. The man, Louise MacBain, says that “With myartinfo people can post for free their art — not only visual art but performing arts, film, poetry, sculpture, fashion, architecture and design.” MacBain is a wealthy businesswoman who has invested heavily in the arts in Britain in recent years. Designed by Robert Romiti, www.myartinfo.com bears similarities to major networking Web sites like YouTube and MySpace, but still, there are some differences. It is not just about meeting people for the sake of meeting people, it is about sharing your skill and seeing what people think about your work. The site has attracted 810 users from around the world in its first few days displaying more than 5,000 works.
Such sites are a great opportunity for the work of an ‘unknown’ artist to be seen by a high number of people on the other side of the globe; hence resulting in new possibilities for the career of an artist!
