In this edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, we speak with Spencer Hyman, founder and CEO of Artfinder, the world’s largest online art catalogue. First, Spencer familiarizes us with Artfinder and details the different services his online company provides its users. Having worked at Amazon and Last.fm, Spencer has been a part of two different transformations that changed how books and music were consumed online. Given these experiences, we asked him what is it about the art world that makes him feel a similar online metamorphisis is possible. Also, Spencer shares his thoughts on why online art sales haven’t taken off thus far and if there is potential for it too going forward.
