The launch of a new online art gallery, ObsessionArt.com is a pioneering development in the future of art retailing. The London based company is the world’s first specialist online retailer of high quality nude, figurative and erotic art, boasting a vast range of exclusive prints and original art from internationally acclaimed artists and photographers.

ObsessionArt explores concepts that many in the traditional art-world fear to acknowledge, but mixes enough of the sensual with the surreal to ensure something for everyone’s tastes and walls. As well as representing classic realist painters such as the UK’s Lee Jones, the company sells more controversial art and photography from contemporary masters including Italian artist, Saturno Buttò and the award winning US photographer, Lochai.

Some of the art is sure to raise eyebrows, re-opening a popular debate of where art and porn intersect in polite society. Though painting of the nude form has long held a place in art; it is the advent of companies such as Taschen, and the emergence of a “posh-porn” ethic, that has permitted a new sense of upper-class exploration.

Established art collectors continue to seek out and invest in high-class sensual art and erotica. However, for every well-connected aficionado, there remains thousands of would be enthusiasts who find their art choices limited to identikit IKEA prints and other innocuous replica images.

ObsessionArt’s Managing Director, Mark Davis: “With consumers now buying art online in larger numbers, we’ve developed an opportunity to bring some really very talented artists to a wider audience of buyers; the type of buyers who want the chance to buy something a little (and often a lot) different. While a few of the artists we feature already had a moderate web presence, we found hunting the Net for high quality art in this genre was a long, disheartening process. When, after hours of ‘trawling’ you might chance upon a talent there was no consistency of standard or ease of purchase; what are they selling, what will the print quality be, and, are my details safe? were typical question we had.

“ObsessionArt provides a sophisticated and secure customer experience, bringing the world’s best erotic and figurative artists together in one place and presenting only their best work for purchase, printed at the very highest quality standards.”

Designed to be open and accessible to all, the site is easy to use and even has a customer-controlled content filter to ensure a shock-free browsing experience. Customers can search through infinite search options: by artists, artistic style and themes, to name a few.

The choice continues for customers, when they find the image they want, with different Giclee printing options to suit preference and budget. A 315gsm ‘Fine Art Paper’ print is an option for customers after a high-quality paper print to be mounted and framed behind glass. The alternative is the ‘Stretched Canvas’ option.

This is a very simple yet stunning way of buying art, with the image printed onto heavy 340gsm artist grade cotton canvas before being stretched around a bespoke hardwood frame, ready to hang the moment it arrives. All ObsessionArt prints are securely and discretely packaged and delivered direct to the door.
