Our Art Consultancy Services

Contemporary Artwork Commissioning

With access to some of the most exciting contemporary artists working today, Artelier's team of art curators can create a completely bespoke artwork solution for your needs.

We will start the conversation by finding out what type of project you are working on, whether it be for a private residence or a large commercial enterprise. Once we have an understanding of the project scope, we will then prepare an initial proposal. Our team of dedicated art curators and art advisors will work with you at every step. From artwork commissioning and shipping to final framing and installation.

Art Tours with a Senior Curator

If you are interested in having a better understanding of the art market, or perhaps are seeking advice on growing an existing art collection, a private art fair tour may be a great option.


Expertly lead by one of our senior art consultants, the tour can be completely tailored to your needs and interests. We can provide expert guidance on navigating the art world, assistance in working with art dealers as well as education on specific art movements you may be looking to invest in.

Art Investment Guidance

Our dedicated 'art concierge' service is your representative when navigating the art world. You will be assigned a specialist art advisor that will be able to provide advice while also being a good listener, in order to understand your unique 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 work with the best positioned individuals for a client's investment goals, as an indispensable art partner.

Curated Art Collections

Our team of art consultants and curators can provide a complete art collection. Whether you are looking for investment grade art or a brand new commissioned piece for your home we can curate a personalised collection to meet your needs.


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

International Shipping and Logistics

We understand that shipping artwork internationally can be an involved process working with one of our project managers we can provide a complete service, getting the finished artwork from the artists studio to the final desired location.


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.


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 Consultant do?

Founder & Creative Director

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


The role of an art consultant 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.
