Mobile devices have opened a vast realm of possibilities for everyone from sporting goods retailers to local artists.
Take the Bluethumb app as an example, which is a digital marketplace where users can browse, share and shop for art straight from Australia’s new and emerging artists.
This Australia exclusive marketplace provides an expansive outlet for browsing artwork, with more than 7,000 original pieces available for purchase. Moreover, the app helps artists gain publicity and earn extra money. Users can find art within the app through a variety of menu filters, from the newest to the most popular artwork.
While there is no postage fee associated with purchasing a piece of artwork through the app (just the fee for the art), only users that are located within Australia are able to purchase.
