The Aigner Art Story
We started the idea of Aigner Art in the UK as Elke, my wife and I came back from a vernissage in winter 2012. We both concluded that the art market is still a niche market, where it is difficult for young artist to make a living and galleries mainly attract buyers from nearby. We started to brainstorm how we can transform the art experience from physical events in galleries to an online platform in order to attract a broader and vivid audience. We wanted it to be fun and engaging for the audience and supportive for young artists. So Aigner Arts mission for an experience driven art space in the Internet was born. It’s a long way to go and there is always a tradeoff between the idea we had in mind and what is possible from a technology point of view. To build our experience we are working in an International team of experts.
Elke and Alexander Aigner
We initially started with paintings of young artists of our own collection. Our house is full of paintings – in fact every wall is used for paintings. But soon we realized that the entry prices of several thousand Euros for our paintings are too high to attract a broader audience.
Art in our home
So we began touring the world – we visited Barcelona, Rome, Ethiopia, Armenia, Kirgizstan, India and China and collected over 4.000 handpicked original handmade paintings.
The symbol in our logo is a fictive character of an Elephant that conquers the world, meets people from all walks of life and shares inspiring stories by watching paintings. We at Aigner Art believe in art as a storyteller: a unique, adventurous and versatile journey
We don´t do commission work at Aigner Art. We always buy what we believe in. An important factor for us is if the artist can convince us that she or he is really pursing an artist career. We don’t buy from hobby artists because we don´t believe that the prices of their art work increases.
As a starting point for Aigner Arts mission to deliver an experience driven art space in the Internet we are providing an immersive 3D interactive photorealistic art exhibition where our visitors can “walk-through” our virtual exhibition rooms. In the near future we plan to support Occulus and Samsung VR gear as well as add special effects to our exhibitions, thus challenging traditional art boundaries and inviting passionate art lovers of all genres to enlarge their vision by immersing themselves into the impeccable precision of 3D art.
