Alexander Gilkes Takes the Art World Digital with Paddle8. Most auctioneers spend years training for their first -major sale. Not so Alexander Gilkes, who just 12 months after arriving in New York to serve as the marketing director at Phillips de Pury & Company, suddenly found himself wielding the gavel for its 2009 Latin American auction at the insistence of his boss, Simon de Pury. “I was terrified,” Gilkes recalls. But de Pury’s hunch that his protégé, whom he had personally plucked from Krug, would be a natural proved spot-on. “I’ve seen hundreds of auctioneer starts,” says the former Phillips chairman, himself one of the world’s great auctioneers. Any vestiges of terror had long since dissolved by the night, this past fall, when Gilkes conducted the live auction for the Lunchbox Fund, which provides meals to South African schoolkids.
The inspiration for Paddle8 came via the charity auctions that Gilkes is still frequently invited to conduct. For a man banking on next-gen innovation, Gilkes comes across as decidedly old-world.

The Truth About the Murky Online Art Market. Online art sales are on the rise. London-based art market research group ArtTactic and the Hiscox Group, a Bermuda-based insurance company, estimate that the online art and collectibles market will see an annual growth rate of 19 percent for each of the next four years, with profits increasing from approximately $1.57 billion in 2013 to $3.76 billion in 2018. This is based on the companies' recent joint study of online art-buying platforms, which sought to determine what percentage of people are using sites like Auctionata, Paddle8, 1stdibs, Artspace, Artsy, Artuner, and Artfinder, what they are buying, and for how much.
The report, though extensive, is not exhaustive. Artnet Worldwide Corporation, the owner of artnet News, also owns and operates artnet Auctions, an online auction house and marketplace that sells fine art. How much money are online art sales sites actually making? This is a tricky question, because very few of the sites surveyed actually shared this data.
