ARTmonday: 17 Artworks from Paddle8

Paddle 8 is an online art marketplace that partners with galleries, art fairs, foundations, and museums to offer a curated selection of artwork and content surrounding it. The site launched in April of last year, though it wasn’t really on my radar until co-founder Alexander Gilkes emailed me this past winter to say they had secured substantial VC funding. Tons of interesting galleries from across the globe, including Brooklyn, Mexico City, Vienna, Helsinki, Istanbul, New Delhi, and Sao Paulo  are represented, as well as art fairs, like Nada Miami Beach and The Armory Show Piers 92 & 94. There’s a lot to look at. Last night I went through just one section, Paddle8 For Good, a new initiative that supports select non-profit arts with unique and collaborative projects. Here’s what I turned up.
