On 6 August 1991 Sir Tim Berners-Lee created the first website.
June 1992 Art Addiction Gallery launched
the first-ever online art gallery on the www - the art addiction
network at artaddiction.net. Art Addiction
realized expeditiously that
the traditional notion of viewing and buying art through galleries
and exhibitions could be simplified by appropriating the Internet to
redefine the traditional modus operandi concerning the display and
purchase of art.
By utilizing the
Internet as a viewing space and virtual environment, Art Addiction
the web gallery of art has become the definitive ‘Art-Creator to
Art-Consumer’ arena, a unique collaboration with some of the
world's most acclaimed emerging and established fine artists.
The Art Addiction virtual enterprise is operated exclusively by
full-time professional graduate fine artists exclusively dedicated to bringing you cutting-edge
contemporary art. The Art Addiction art
project quickly evolved into an efficacious on-line art
marketing entity, an endeavor that has grown and flourished
throughout the last two decades. By formalizing an on-line
‘business-of-art’ model, expenditures and overhead attributed to the
sale of art have been slashed, commensurate with increased
profitability for the associated artists. Being artists understanding the requirements of people involved in creative
activities, Art Addiction has worked closely with his artists to
engender several unique on-line expositions that have, over the last
two decades, come to be recognized worldwide by the Internet community.
During this process Art
has established cogent liaisons within
the global art-market network and has compiled an impressive
database of artist clients. More than six thousand artists actively

for exhibition and potential sales.
