"The art industry is elitist, outdated, and it isn’t relevant for new buyers: Millenials and Gen-Z."

When I look back on my art school years in France, I feel like art schools unconsciously teach art students to speak to one small audience: educated and wealthy people with an interest in arts and culture.

Young artists aren’t able to make a living from their art it’s because the art industry is elitist, outdated, and it isn’t relevant for new buyers: Millenials and Gen-Z. This new audience spends a lot of time online looking for inspiring and meaningful content. Therefore, it is important that visual artists share their artworks and visions through social media, and interact with their audiences.

Instagram gives them the opportunity to showcase their artworks in a global market. However, with more than a billion subscriptions on Instagram, their content isn’t nearly visible at all. And there is almost too much available for buyers.

Art From Future makes it easy for one to discover and invest in the artists of the future. We are on a mission to make the art world more entertaining and inclusive: what if you were the discoverer of the next super-star artist? Let’s create a new art world together.
