“Emerging artists” is a stretchy term pertinent to the art market, implying a group of artistic creators who have reached a certain point in their professional development. While many of them show significant potential, not many of them will reach the highest top of success, and the majority will continue to build careers with financially moderate performance in comparison to the top sellers.

According to Statista, global online art sales increased by 4% from 2018 to 2019 to approximately $4.82 billion. Estimates point that it will nearly double to $9.32 billion by 2024, as the pandemic has had a huge impact on the online art market.
