Online 2021 Algeria launches a digital platform to display and sell works of art

On Tuesday, Algeria launched a digital platform entitled (My Painting) to display and sell artworks, including paintings, pictures and sculptures, via the Internet, with the aim of organizing and developing the art collections market and opening new horizons for Algerian artists.

The preliminary list of artworks on the stage includes works by about 30 artists from Algeria, including Sadiq Amin Khouja, Yazid Khuloufi, Amer El Hachemi, Sofyan Day, Adlan Jafal, Zahra Hashid Sallal and Najwa Saraa.

Many of our artists who are suffering from a difficult situation are in fact projects of international names if they had the opportunity and were given the conditions to display and market their achievements with critical, media and promotional accompaniment,

said Minister of Culture and Arts Malika Bin Douda, on Tuesday at the inauguration ceremony of the platform.

She added,

The artist is not the only one who complains about this situation.

The customer or the connoisseur also needs a space that guarantees him value and appreciation and proposes to guarantee the originality, quality, paperwork and excellence of the artistic work, and we hope that this project will present a gesture in this regard.

She emphasized that the diversification of outlets, especially electronic ones, would allow the Algerian artist to exhibit his work at home and abroad.

The platform provides complete information about the displayed artwork, its price, and the artist who created it, but the available method of purchase until now is direct cash payment or bank checks.

In statements to reporters, the minister said,

Today I acquired a plate from the platform.

I will receive it at home and pay by check, but work is currently underway with banks to activate electronic payment through bank cards.
