Danial Aslanimehr: Leading Marketplace in the Art World

June 6, 2022

Canvas Tube is a leading marketplace in the art world. Canvas Tube caters to anyone who shares a passion for art— whether you are just starting or already lead a major art collection, we bring simplicity to each step as you discover, share and purchase art.

Tell us about yourself?

I’m a contemporary art collector. Why I started and the motivation behind my current collecting remain largely the same: to live amongst beautiful works that inspire me. The story behind the artists is what draws me in, and I spend a lot of time reading, researching and understanding the artist’s motivation behind the work.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Don’t be afraid of taking chances. The dots will connect in the future.

What problem does your business solve?

We proudly move galleries closer to their global audience, and we move collectors closer to each other. We move art lovers closer to the art world.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

As an online platform for modern and contemporary art, Canvas Tube revolutionizes how art is discovered, experienced, and collected. Our mission is to help you with the art of collecting so you feel supported as you navigate talented artists from all over the world.

What is your magic sauce?

Canvas Tube works closely with collectors individually in developing and managing an art collection with an extensive approach. Our team provides collectors with invaluable insight when buying and selling. The Advisory team can identify emerging artists to further enhance the collections of our clients with up-and-coming talent. You will be notified of such promising artists as our advisors strive to discover new talent in the art world.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

I would say it is to continue collecting in a similar trajectory, as I want the continuity in my collection to be clearly identifiable. In the next five years, I would love to show some pieces publicly, along with building a small foundation down the road.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

Securing Funding Without Sacrificing Focus On our goal.

How do people get involved/buy into your vision?

Canvas Tube is determined to discover the obscure talents of the world and bring them forth for the people to see, help them connect with others sharing the same interests and become a part of the beautiful art industry.
