If you like to buy and sell an original art, then Saatchi Art is the best place for you. It offers thousands of original drawings, paintings, and other forms of art by a multitude of emerging artists. I visited the gallery once and I was in awe of its vast amount of art pieces.

Below, I’ll detail my review of Saatchi Art and discuss its background.
 

Overview About Saatchi Art

Saatchi Art is an online art gallery which offers over 500,000 original art pieces by more than 50,000 emerging artists worldwide. Several art pieces include paintings, sculpture, photography, and drawings. This platform gives a nice opportunity for artists to display and sell their work in an expertly curated environment.

In May 2006, Saatchi Art was founded. In 2014, Leaf Group (formerly known as Demand Media Inc.) acquired Saatchi Art. Based in Los Angeles, this art gallery provides a new platform for purchasing and selling art that is simple, convenient, and congenial to both artists and collectors.

What is Saatchi Art like to shop at?

Pros

No Advisory Fees

Saatchi Art offers a personalized art advisory service without any charge. Whatever art you’re looking to buy, your own expert curator will choose works suited to your needs. The curator will recommend about 30 works for you to choose online. No other art galleries offer an art advisory program for free. This makes Saatchi ahead of its competition. This art advisory program will surely help you save time to choose the best artwork for your space and style.
 

Great Artwork Selection

Saatchi Art offers over 500,000 original artworks on their site. These artworks come from more than 50,000 new artists worldwide. Best of all, they come in a wide range of prices to fit your budget.
 

Money Back Guarantee

Since these artworks don’t come cheap, it’s a blessing that Saatchi offers a 7-day money back guarantee. This allows you to purchase expensive artwork with confidence. With this guarantee, you can return it and ask for a full refund if you’re not happy with the artwork you bought.
 

Global Shipping

You can buy an artwork in Saatchi anywhere in the world. Saatchi offers global shipping for an effortless delivery. The price of shipping is already included in the artwork price so you won’t get surprised to pay for additional fees upon delivery. I like that Saatchi packs the artwork securely. Delivery is done as promised and on time. You get emails at each step of the way so you know what’s happening to your artwork package.
 

A Great Platform To Sell Your Artwork

If you’re an emerging artist, then Saatchi Art is a good platform to sell your creations. It’s free to create an account and Saatchi will handle the shipping for you. What you have to pay is only for the packaging. For every artwork sold, you get 65%. You can choose the method and time of payment through wire transfer, PayPal, and check. With more than a million followers in social media, you’ll get the exposure that you want.

To sell your art, first, create a free account then photograph your artwork. Next, upload your artwork and complete your profile.
 

Cons

Poor Customer Service

The online platform is amazing but the customer service isn’t prompt in answering concerns. I tried asking Saatchi’s customer service about the tracking number of my package but I got no answer. This online gallery could be so much better if the customer representatives actually respond promptly to the buyers. Also, if you ask for a refund, the customer service won’t call you back right away. You have to email and call them for a lot of times to respond. Maybe the lack of staff can be blamed for this issue.
 

Slow Delivery

The delivery of painting seems to take a very long time. Sometimes, the package comes damaged when received. Although they’re willing to give a refund, the time spent in waiting for the package to arrive was in vain. If your package was taking a long time, call Saatchi Art right away. They will track your package and contact the courier service for you.
 

Verdict

From 1 to 10, I’ll give Saatchi Art an 8. They offer a great selection of original pieces of artwork from paintings to sculptures around the world. They give a 7-day money back guarantee which I really like because it makes you feel confident to buy their expensive artworks. However, they can do better in their customer service.

If you are an emerging artist, you should give Saatchi Art a try in selling your work. They can give you the exposure that you really need as a struggling artist.
