Saatchi Art is an online art gallery and social market platform whose mission is to connect people with art and artists they love.
Continuing the Saatchi Gallery’s legacy of promoting new, contemporary artists and bringing great art to a wide audience, Saatchi Art offers a selection of original paintings, drawings, sculpture and photography in a range of prices, and it provides artists from around the world with an expertly curated environment in which to exhibit and sell their work.
The company launched as a commercial venture in Los Angeles in 2010 and began selling works online for artists in early 2011. In January of 2014, under the direction of CEO Sean Moriarty, it officially changed its name from Saatchi Online to Saatchi Art to better and more explicitly evoke its business and mission.
