Art Space Sri Lanka is the first curated online gallery to present a purchasable catalogue of contemporary art from Sri Lanka. Over the past five years the local contemporary art scene has gained momentum internationally and today has become one of the most sought after South Asian emerging art scenes.
Art Space Sri Lanka wanted to enter the untapped online market for Sri Lankan contemporary art on a global scale. Their website also aimed to become the standard online source for anything related to art in Sri Lanka, providing information on all the galleries, museums and exhibitions in the country. The e-commerce part of the website required an unusual solution where customers could add items of interest to a Collection and then request a quote. Aimed at local and international customers, the Global Payments payment gateway was set up to handle payments in this Joomla! website using the Virtuemart component.
