WHAT IS ARTIOUS?
Artious is a social network for art discovery, discussion, and exhibition.
Artious helps Artists to showcase their work on the web, tablets, and phones, and to connect with people interested in art. Using Artious, collectors and curators discover new art, new artists, and new art trends. Art aficionados can browse through art-filled pages of Artious and connect with their favorite artists.
Artious is focusing on a different kind of “story” – an important story that bridges the gap between technology and art. Artious provides artists from around the world with a social platform to interact and foster discussions with fellow artists, collectors, galleries and curators. I am really excited about all of the Middle Eastern artists that are being given a voice at Artious. As an artist myself, I am also proud to be a part of this vibrant and growing community.

Fine art is good medicine; it soothes the sick, affirming hope and a renewed sense of self. As a doctor, I witnessed many times that hospitals are places where joy and sorrow meet and special energy is accumulated. And in a very special way, we become humble and our spirits become more open to interact with arts.
Arts can transport us like nothing else to a different state of mind. And having ability to escape to a world free of anxiety and full of levity which arts provide, allows us to heal. There is a new science emerging from the intersection of arts and medicine, where arts I am sure will find the platform to flourish its full therapeutic potential.

Just as Pandora and other fantastic sites like Pinterest let you explore and discover different music and interests, I feel Artious enables us to discover new art, share our passions for artists, and create a great place for the artist to be discovered. I wish the team, the community, and the artists with Artious great success!

Your site, as well as the intent of your design, has enlivened me to replace my common misconceptions of the daily life of parts of the Middle East.

The founders of Artious have created the equivalent of a Facebook for artists. Joining this social network feels like delving into a photo-album of new art. Showcasing these works on the widest basis, the mission is to generate discovery, discussion and promotion. The Internet will have an increasingly large role to play in the future of the art industry, and this is an important step along that path.
