As a company whose origins are in providing professional development to emerging artists, Artelier upholds a truly supportive approach. With an inherent belief in artists' creative potential, we connect talented artists to international projects and provide the necessary curatorial support for artists to develop ambitious work.
Artelier is recognised as an exemplary model for its social responsibility to artists and conscious trading, ensuring that artistic talent is fairly remunerated.
Ancient Techniques & Craftsmanship
Integral to Artelier’s ethos is working with artists who have an deep connection to their materials and the subtleties within. This sense of truth to materials and honed craftsmanship requires a lifetime of dedication.
Particularly significant to Artelier are artists who have pursued a path of learning and developing ancient craft techniques, following in the footsteps of their ancestors to keep the medium alive and relevant to a contemporary context.
Artelier has a particular focus on promoting artists working sustainably, and has developed strong relationships with a network of contemporary artists championing the use of natural materials.
The artists of our latest Artist Walls collection all share a sense of connection to our planet and display an intuitive use of natural materials. Artelier’s Fine Art Framing promotes a specially developed collection of hand-crafted sustainably-sourced British wood frames with natural dyes and finishes.
Artelier is working towards being Carbon Neutral. Our offices are powered by 100% renewable energy and all business activities are considered to minimise our carbon footprint.
Travel and artwork shipments are offset through our contributions to Carbon Footprint – an organisation which is reforesting the Amazon rainforest in Peru. All our own artwork packing materials are plastic free and are either reusable or 100% biodegradable, and we re-use the packaging we receive.
