Quality is key to our concept and ambition.

We do not compromise on quality when it comes to selecting artworks for our website. To ensure that you will only find exclusive works on this platform, every artwork has been carefully screened, analyzed and selected by a panel of professional curators. Every work on our website is a guaranteed original that comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.

Our three curators have been selected on the basis of their thorough knowledge of contemporary art, their critical eye and their professional insight. All of our curators have at least 25 years experience in contemporary art as: organizer of art exhibitions, regular member of art juries, advisor to official cultural & art institutions, expert in the selection of fine art for museums or private collections, writer or art critic.

They are the drive behind our platform for both artists and art lovers worldwide: promoting talented artists by selecting their finest works of art.
