Linea - Social Marketplace for Visual Art
Discover. Connect. Collect.
What? It’s a struggle to find new artists, authentically connect with them and then directly purchase their work.
Why? The online art market is inefficient and disjointed, with social networks previously addressing discoverability and legacy marketplaces being outdated, opaque and missing authentic connection.
Why Now? The previously lagging $70 billion art market is rapidly digitising.
Linea is a social marketplace for contemporary visual art, blending effective social networking with the reputability of a premium gallery. Designed to enable the discovery, collecting and sharing of digital and physical contemporary artwork that is purchasable and resellable. You can use Linea to create portfolios of artwork you find, own or want to sell, connect and strengthen your artistic network, get inspired, and form collaborative communities.
