Posted May 10, 2018 03:03:50 Australian companies are hoping a new online marketplace will help them land the best artists to design their own artwork.3D art is a broad category that includes everything from video games to clothing to cars.
Artists have long been required to apply for jobs at a number of Australian companies.
Now, a new website, Artwork Australia, is hoping to offer them a cheaper way to get their work into the country.
“We’re doing it in an open marketplace, we’re not charging anything for it,” the site’s founder, Artworks Australia CEO James Clark, said.
“If you can put a picture on a piece of paper and you want to have it made, we’ll make it for you for $50.”
For the first time, ArtWorks Australia is offering job applications from Australian artists to people with no prior art experience.
“You don’t need to be an artist in order to apply, you just need to have some knowledge of what 3D is and what it can do,” Mr Clark said.”[The website] will be open to artists in the country and we’ve got the right people in the right places.”
While it may seem daunting to many Australians to start a new business, Mr Clark believes the opportunity is so huge it’s worth it.
“People don’t realise the huge potential of this industry,” he said.
In order to get a job, an applicant must:Have no previous experience as an artistThe job requires a minimum of 10 years experience, but Mr Clark says this will vary depending on the job title.”[In] the short term it might be an office job, for example, where the client might want you to design a product, or a house,” Mr Craig said.

“For a job that’s not necessarily going to require an extensive portfolio of work, for instance a painting, or even a video game, or an advertising, there’s a number where you can actually do some really interesting work.”
That’s what we’re looking for.
“It’s a new world for many AustraliansArtworks Australia is only a start for ArtworksAustralia, with Mr Clark hoping the website will allow artists to find work at home.”
Our business model is the idea that the people who work for us will get paid fairly,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.”
They’ll get a fair wage.
They’ll get their own office, they’ll get the right staff, they won’t have to go to any other part of the world.
“In other words, they’re in the best position to have a successful career, and they’ll have the skills, the knowledge, the experience that they need to create something.”
Mr Clark says his business will allow people to make art for themselves, without having to rely on a 3D-printed model.
“I think that’s the future,” he added.
“It’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to the 3d art industry.”
ArtworksAustralia currently employs just 10 people, but has plans to expand in the future.
“As we grow we’ll be able to hire a couple more,” Mr Jones said.
