Luxify and 99 Limited Editions Art House Brings What Limited Editions Should Be to Asian Buyers
Hong Kong, China, January 24, 2017 – A new collaboration between Luxify, Asia’s premier online luxury marketplace and 99 Limited Editions, a Fine Art House based in London, is offering art collectors a new way to tackle with the issue of limited editions.
Art Appreciation in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is commonly known as a reality-based city. Soaring prices on lands discomfort the creative minds. Despite the challenges surrounded, Hong Kong’s taste of art is growing strong and gains larger audiences than ever. People are willing to dive into long-queued exhibitions like the recent Asia Contemporary Art Buyer, which was a great spring show and a highly anticipated comeback in September this year.
“Not only with record numbers achieved at Auction Houses, Hong Kong Art Fairs are growing in popularity ever year. Our city is now a major destination for for all Art Collectors” says Florian Martigny, Co-Founder & Managing Director of Luxify.com. Luxify connects Asian art collectors with long established and innovative Art galleries throughout the world.
Problem with Limited Edition Arts
Limited edition art pieces surpass to another level of philosophy. But there is a problem. According to Jessica van Haselen, creative director of 99 Limited Editions, “The truth is that many platforms produce limited editions but when a particular artwork by a recognised artist becomes popular, they then rerelease that piece in a different form.” In many cases, galleries habitually sell its copyright to poster printing company to create several copies in photographic format. Thus, owners no longer exclusively own it and the limited edition label is definitely off the book.
Certificate of Authenticity
99 Limited Editions strives to pay as much respect to the artist and the piece itself by doing no other has done in the art world before. They designed a state-of-the-art Certificate of Authenticity to protect the unique creativity and legal ownership. This promises the piece is the one and only limited edition art that will ever be released.
“Indeed there are many galleries commissioned and sell prints of an original piece and that defeats the sole idea of limited edition. I would be raged if my limited edition piece is no longer limited. Obviously I want something that is unique for my space,” says Florian. “99 Limited Editions brilliantly had the idea and actually implemented it to become a niche in the art market. Hopefully more platforms will agree and comply to it, turning a concept into a promise to customers. Also I have to stress, we are very proud to be partners with 99 Limited Editions to bring true limited edition pieces to our customers.”
