About Artelier Art Advisory

Artelier is an international team of art advisors offering expertise in art market research, investment guidance, contemporary art commissioning, project management, framing, and installation. For over a decade, Artelie’s team of art advisors and art curators has been dedicated to curating outstanding art for a diverse range of private and corporate clients.

In private settings, we provide custom artwork solutions for gardens, residences, super-yachts, and private aircraft. In the public sphere, we partner with interior designers and project owners to curate art for hotels, corporate collections, and public art initiatives. Our art advisory services are always tailored to the unique context and needs of each client.

Throughout the years, Artelier has acquired exceptional art for discerning private clients and industry leaders, including some of the world’s most recognised brands. Working seamlessly with both private collectors and corporate clients, our team of senior art advisors and curators can assist art buyers with a wide variety of needs.

Our portfolio of work includes public art, fully curated art collections for hotels, private residences, yachts, and private planes. Additionally, we specialise in bespoke feature walls, known as our 'Artist Walls', which can be chosen as individual statement pieces or as part of a complete artwork collection.

Our Art Advisory Services

Contemporary Artwork Commissioning

With access to some of the most exciting emerging artists working today, Artelier's team of art advisors can create a completely bespoke artwork solution for your needs. Over the years we have built a reputation for commissioning contemporary art in all kinds of medium including photography, prints, sculpture, drawing and painting. 

Working with a senior art curator we will typically start the conversation by finding out what type of project you are working on, whether a private residence or large commercial enterprise. Once we have an understanding of the project scope, as well as your goals, interests and aesthetic we will then prepare an initial proposal. Our team of dedicated art advisors will work with you at every step of the process, providing regular updates while overseeing the art commissioning process. 


Navigating The Art World

If you are looking to have a better understanding of the art market, or perhaps are seeking advice on growing an existing art collection, a private tour may be a great option. A senior curator can walk you around art fairs, auctions, galleries, museums, and private dealers in order to educate on a particular artist or art movement as well as give you access to private sales.

Each tour is expertly led, and can be completely tailored to your needs and interests. We can provide guidance on select pieces, assistance in working with art dealers as well as education on the type of art you may be looking to invest in.

Art Investment Guidance

Artelier art advisory offers a dedicated 'Art Concierge' service, acting as your representative in the art world. You will be assigned a specialist art advisor that will be able to share their knowledge and provide investment guidance. Whether you have an interest in a particular period in art history or want to start collecting a particular artist we can tailor our services to your needs


Our art concierge service involves liaising on your behalf with specialists, art dealers and artists in order to build a bespoke art collection. The aim of this service is to provide expertise to a private collector looking for investment advice on everything from emerging artists to blue chip and established names. Partnering with leaders in their field we can give you access to key players and private sales.


Curated Art Collections

Our team of art consultants and curators can provide a complete collection of original art by leading contemporary artists . Whether you are looking for paintings, prints, drawings or a unique installation we can conduct extensive research and review portfolios on your behalf. 

We will start by understanding your personal aesthetic, find out whether you have an interest in a specific art genre or art movement. Our art advisory will then put together a proposal document which will start a conversation about potential artists and artworks. We will assist you throughout the whole process until the final delivery and installation of your artwork selection.

International Shipping and Logistics

We understand that shipping at times fragile artwork internationally can be an involved process that requires expertise. Working with one of our project managers we can provide a complete service, getting the finished artwork safely from the artist's studio to the final desired location taking onboard any special request and preferences. 


Artelier's shipping and logistics department has expert knowledge in arranging delivery and transportation as well as final installation. We have shipped everything from fragile glass artworks to oversized ceramic wall installations, oil paintings, large sculptures and everything in-between. Our team has a strong ability to anticipate transportation issues and to find the most budget friendly and efficient approach.

Flexible Fee Structure

Depending on your needs and the project scope we can either work on a percentage fee of the final artwork sale, an hourly rate or a combination of the two for larger projects.


When commissioning a small collection or single bespoke artwork, the consultant's fee typically falls in the range of 5-15% of the artwork's value, depending on the project's specific requirements.

For larger, more extensive projects that demand a longer-term commitment from us, the fee structure is often presented as a comprehensive package. This package covers both art consultancy fees and artwork costs.

What does an Art Advisory do?

Founder & Creative Director

Every art advisory will have their area of specialism, however in general most art advisors will be working closely with both private and corporate clients to curate contemporary art collections.  A client may be interested in finding the perfect artist or set of paintings for their home interior, or be looking for help in navigating the art market.


The role of an art advisor can be as versatile as the client's needs, whether that be to acquire a piece of art history, or to curate a complete collection of 200+ artworks for a new hotel resort.

An art advisory can completely transform and refine a collection, elevating it to new heights. If you are looking for investment grade pieces, an advisor who is often knowledgeable in art history, can also serve as a great ally in navigating the art market, giving you access to artists, art dealers and exclusive auctions in a way that other collectors may not have.
