  *my-artmap now provides an international sales platform embedded in its
    social arts network
  *Dealers can display their items in their own shop to a global audience
  *A revolution for collectors and dealers alike

The social art network, my-artmap, provides a shopping system for artists,
galleries, dealers and auction houses and is able to reach art lovers

" The link between a social network aimed at the  arts  target group and a
global marketplace is fantastic. We are excited by this idea, because we can
now show our items directly to the correct target group and avoid losses from
non-selective advertising, " says Frank Fluegel, Owner of the renowned Galerie
Fluegel-Roncak, which as well as offering numerous works by well-known pop
artists, is also offering the original work "Fata" by Mel Ramos (150,000
euros) via my-artmap SHOPS.

It has so far been possible to befriend other members on my-artmap in the same
way as on Facebook and to discuss international arts events and market news.
This has now changed. Contemporary arts by Warhol, Rizzi and Lichtenstein will
be offered for sale along with jewellery, watches and paintings by old masters
from the 15 ^th - 18 ^th century. Prices range from 20 euros to 150,000
euros, indicating the wide range of items available on the platform.

In recent weeks, the company's founders, have entered into numerous
co-operation agreements with jewellers, galleries, jewellery dealers and art

" It is particularly the mix of established dealers and young artists that is
so unique. We would like to interest traditional collectors in works by modern
artists and show young collectors fascinating items from the 16 ^th  or 17
^th  century. After all, there is one thing that unites all art lovers: a
love of beautiful things  -  and this is precisely where we forge our
links! " says Stefan Sebök, who was involved in the international art market
as an auctioneer before founding my-artmap.
