The benefits I see are plenty. Art lovers can access my work while on the go, at workplace or coffee shop or anywhere, they know what is happening at my studio.

According to Gartnerâ€™s report, Indiaâ€™s mobile penetration which is currently 51 per cent is expected to grow to 72 per cent by 2016 and the number of mobile connections to cross 900 million. Already, India is worldâ€™s second largest mobiles devices using country. This will augur good for the artist like Stanley. When things are moving from e-world to m-world, Stanley Studio has already arrived to capture the virgin market.
The Indian Art Market is estimated to be about Rs.1250 crores, compared to the global Rs.31000 crore it may seem less than 1 per cent. But Indian art market said to be on growth path. A report published by Fortune found that the domestic market rose over 450 per cent in the last ten years, making it the most positive art market in the world and is said to be the fourth most positive market. Unlike in the past only few like collectors, connoisseurs, royal and affluent evinced interest in art for aesthetic value but today art is also looked at as investment. With this app the world is open market for the artist and an untapped huge market awaits him, said Amaresh.
