Our Art Consultancy Process
The art market offers exceptional opportunities, as long as it is navigated with diligence and comprehensive knowledge. With over 20 years’ experience within the contemporary art industry, as art consultants Artelier has an exacting eye for quality and a rigorous approach to procuring authentic art.
With a commitment to providing clients with concise and trusted art advice, Artelier’s principle role as an art consultant is to positively question the purchasing contexts within which contemporary art is presented. Through this ongoing process, we have identified some of the most talented artists making work today.
Through the culmination of extensive artistic research, Artelier has established a comprehensive database of over 10,000 artists, which represent a global community of artists and a spectrum of artforms – all of which meet our demanding criteria for Quality, Originality, Provenance and Value.
Engaging with the project's unique design and context is central to our role as art consultants. Responding to each individual context is a collaborative and creative process, which draws on our art market insight and comprehensive artist database to develop expertly curated and highly personalised art collections.
The relationship of an artwork to its space requires careful consideration to ensure the work is balanced with its surroundings. Artelier’s in-depth art curation initiates with detailed review of floor plans and site visits to understand the space, and identify key artwork locations and dimensions.
Maintaining the creative vision for the project, Artelier has a respected track record for effective and rigorous project management. As art consultants, we oversee: concept development; sampling & quality control; technical specifications; key milestones & deliverables; timely schedule; and successful sign off.

Understanding the importance of finesse in the final presentation of artworks, Artelier provides a fine art framing consultancy and plinth design service for sculptural works. In addition to custom art framing, we develop specialist fixings and modifications to ensure the most secure and elegant final presentation.
