The past few months have seen the appearance of many online and mobile platforms in China that are proving a boon for young and established artists, and a great way for the public to buy pieces at affordable prices. Deng Zhangyu reports.

In the past six months, Beijing-based painter Zhong Biao has sold limited-edition prints of his oil painting Samadhi using an art app Ywart, at prices ranging from 699 yuan ($102) to 899 yuan based on the sizes of the prints.

He has also put some of his oil paintings for sale on the mobile-art trading platform.

Although none of his oil paintings priced at more than 250,000 yuan have sold online yet, Zhong is confident about striking a deal soon.

The 49-year-old has held solo shows in China and abroad, but using the app is his first attempt to sell works online.
