Taiko is a new way of buying Finnish contemporary art. Taiko is an online marketplace where professional artists present and sell their artwork to consumers and companies. Taiko offers thousands of works from hundreds of artists which makes it the largest marketplace for Finnish art globally.
Taiko offers paintings, graphic prints, photoart and sculptures that artists set for sale. Buyers can browse the selection with various criteria, for example based on price, size and theme. With help for Taiko’s special image feature Taiko Test, the buyer can see how artworks would fit into their own room or space. Purchasing process is similar to ordinary ecommerce.
A courier service delivers artwork to the address provided by the buyer. Delivery time is from four to nine working days. Taiko has the normal ecommerce return period of 14 days.
Presenting artwork on Taiko is free for the artists. From sold artwork, the artist pays a commission.
Taiko is owned by Demosarte Oy Ab which is founded by the communication and marketing professionals Patrik Edman and Pia Edman. Taiko was launched in November 2016.
