ARTEAmundo   has moved to    www.arteamundo.com

In 1997, during the first years of the internet expansion in Argentina, this domain was born as one of the first and most important sites for the worldwide exhibition of the artwork created by local artists of all disciplines and trends, providing an opportunity for painters, sculptors, photographers, musicians and artists of all kinds for taking their art beyond its borders.

This online gallery, which also functioned as a directory for artists, continued working under this domain until 2004 when it began to redirect its visitors towards www.arteamundo.com when they began its international expansion and where they can be found today.

Then in 2014, this domain was allowed to expire. It was bought by someone else, put on auction, then owned by someone else, who then gifted it’s use to me. I’m Dr. Halls from Canada, not the owner, just allowed to use the domain by my friend in Bulgaria. I DO love art, especially photography, and I have many friends in the arts. I was thinking of putting their art here, but so far I have found very little free time to do so. But I’ll hold onto the domain until I become inspired to transform it into something better. In the meantime, please follow the link to arteamundo.com. I’ve also recovered some of the amazing photography and artwork that was previously on this domain, to give you an idea of it’s historical place in the art-on-the-internet movement.

En el año de 1997, durante los primeros años de la expansión del internet en Argentina, nace este dominio como uno de los primeros y mas importantes sitios para la exposición hacia el mundo de obras de arte de artistas locales de todas las disciplinas y tendencias, dando entrada a pintores, escultores, fotógrafos, músicos, artistas plásticos de todo tipo, etc. para que pudieran llevar sus expresiones artísticas más allá de sus fronteras hacia todas partes del mundo.

Esta galería online, la cual funcionó también como directorio de artistas continuó trabajando sobre este dominio hasta el año de 2004 cuando empezó a redirigir a sus visitantes hacia su nuevo dominio www.arteamundo.com desde que comenzó su expansión internacional y en donde siguen funcionando hasta la actualidad.

En el 2014, este dominio expiró y fue adquirido por alguien mas y será utilizado para compartir algo de historia sobre el arte, así como el trabajo de algunos artistas.

A continuación algunas citas acerca de lo que grandes artistas opinaron sobre el arte:
