Investing in art

Art Investment

The Artelier approach to art investment is to act as a personal "art concierge", providing a range of bespoke services: acquiring a stand-out piece, building a collection, and navigating the art market on your behalf. Guided by the client's interests – whether cutting-edge emerging artists, or 20th century masters – we bring together a team of reputable specialists to cater to any niche, offering trusted art investment advice.

Investing with Artelier

The "Art Concierge" is your representative when navigating the art world:  liaising with specialists, dealers and artists. When working with collectors, we tap into our curators' art market expertise and network of art specialists to build a bespoke collection.

We recognise that drawing on external specialists introduces a wealth of knowledge. Catering to niche interests, we may approach a leading dealer of Picasso lithographs, an academic of Barbara Hepworth, or art advisors of contemporary East Asian art. Our aim is to work with the best positioned individuals for a client's investment goals, as an indispensable art partner.

1. Emerging Artists

With the volume of emerging artists, our curators identify those with great investment potential, and avoid work that is clichéd or overpriced. At fairs, shows and online, we discover artists who show conceptual quality and contemporary craftsmanship, and will stand the test of time.

Bespoke Commissions

In addition to facilitating investments in existing pieces, we oversee bespoke commissions with artists. We welcome the collector into a personal connection with the artist,  and involve the collector as their piece comes to life.

 

Collaborating with us ensures a hassle-free process. Accustomed to delivering large-scale commissions for recognised brands, our curators ensure all requirements are met – handling all logistics, from shipping to installation, as well as bespoke presentation solutions.

The Artelier Process

1. Initial Consultation

Our curators take the time to listen to your needs, budget and the types of artworks you are looking to acquire, and audit your existing collection to identify a strategy.

 

We look to understand your personal or corporate aesthetic and interests, enabling us to recommend pieces that reflect your taste while also meeting your financial goals.

2. Art Acquisition & Commission

At this stage, we conduct in-depth research into artworks that would be suited to your collection. These pieces are then presented together in a detailed proposal.

 

The proposal will be reviewed and, collaboratively developed, until the final pieces are selected. We will then act as your representative, negotiating with artists, dealers and galleries.

3. Curation & Project Management

Our dedicated team curate the pieces  – working up detailed elevations and plans for optimal artwork placement. Presentation needs such as lighting, frames and plinths are all considered. 

 

We organise shipment and logistics for delivering your art to the desired location, anywhere in the world. Our turnkey project management oversees pieces from studio to collector's home.

 

4. Ongoing Service

Our portfolio management service is tailored to your needs, from inventory management to researching new works. We can also audit your current collection, and re-curate pieces.  

 

With a knowledge of your interests and an insight into the market, we will discover investment opportunities and aid in sustainably building on your collection. 

We tailor our process to the client's needs,

Gallery & Fair Tours

We approach art collecting as a personal journey – unlike other investment portfolios, investing in art offers a unique opportunity for pursuing passions. As well as offering expert advice at every stage of art acquisition, we offer a bespoke service to enhance your own direct experience of the art world.

 

Our curators can organise tours of galleries and art fairs, tailored to your artistic interests. This service not only helps educate on cutting-edge artists, but also on the mechanics of the art market. As we are not a gallery ourselves, this process is entirely led by the client's personal tastes.
