He would like to someday have a gallery but, right now, he prefers being a broker—one with an impressive online gallery.
And he thinks purchasing art online sales is becoming more accepted.
“Yes definitely we have gone so far along into the cyber world now. I could really see how people slowly are becoming more comfortable buying art online,” says Hu. “It is still pretty much at the beginning but there is a huge demand. Of course, when you reach out online you are talking about global. So that gives you another spectrum of business and audience…”
“I would think so, there is so much to see and I do not how big this is exactly. One could get lost. Hard to see something and at that point make the purchase--unless it is something you ‘see your name on.’” he says.
Among the artists whose work he sells are Ken Shung, Christophe von Hohenberg and many others.
