PHOKKI, an innovative online enterprise spearheads a new internet platform and opens up a whole new trading world that promises to revolutionize the customized digital art market.
Finally, for the artist with the talent to transform an ordinary photo of you and me to a cutting-edge piece of digital artwork but without a gallery or a retail front to attract and sell to consumers, Phokki has innovated an online artist marketplace which will make this yesterday’s problem.
Leading the way in an industry where digital artists abound but the lack of a common trading place and value-for-money pricing stands in the way, PHOKKI has drawn a paradigm shift in the current custom graphic art market. They have ingeniously created an online marketplace- a platform where artists can sign up to offer their photo-styling services and consumers can meet and choose such artists.
Giving a “face and a space to artists”, these artists (many hidden from the public eye in unknown middle-man studios from Singapore to Stockholm to San Francisco) are now free to establish a name (or net-name) for themselves. Artists can showcase their unique styles in their own gallery space on http://www.phokki.com, sell their customized artwork to consumers (who have picked their unique style) as well as an innumerable range of merchandise based on the artwork – all thanks to the vision and dream of the Phokki team!
As CEO Sean Seah explained, the PHOKKI artist market will be a place where the consumers will be spoilt for choice in the range and diversity of digital styles available- whether it’s a case of time-tunneling you from a 2009 photo of yourself to a 1960s retro-vector styled version or a case of pumping power into your 10-year old kid by turning an innocuous photo of him into one where he is a red-caped, sword- yielding 300 Spartan defending the Thermopylae or transformed into a robotic transformer defending the world!
Or transforming you into a dream- complete with special romantic effects or “manga-ing” you into a doll-like green-eyed, red haired rock star! “
Interested artists just need to take 2 simple steps.
Firstly, visit http://www.phokki.com to sign up from any corner of the world. Secondly, upload their portfolios as samples of their style and they are ready for business! – reachable by the consumer from any part of the world with only the click of a mouse or touchpad!
