BETA Art Kenya is an online portal consisting of a media and e-commerce platform. The aim of the portal is to highlight the growth of Kenyan contemporary art and artists globally. It also will sell Kenyan art online globally, market artists and document the Kenyan art scene.
The platform will provide the following services:
Online sales and marketing , Digital documentation of Kenyan artwork, Variety of payment options, Packaging and delivery, Customer service/After sales service, Direct remittance to the artists on purchase.
The business has great potential as there exists no other platform in Kenya or Eastern Africa doing the same in a cohesive manner. Additionally, local artists are spread out through out the region making it difficult for interested consumers to access their work. Lastly, there is great interest in the growth of contemporary African art globally, and the platform would provide information and access to Kenyan contemporary artwork easily.
