Guide to Art Advisory Services

Curating Art for Projects

As art advisors for UAE clients, we consider the unique context of each art project in cities like Dubai and Abu Dhabi. By evaluating the space and conducting in-depth art market research, we develop art proposals and source contemporary artists.


We source a selection of modern artworks in a range of mediums, which are promising art investments for Middle Eastern clients. Our art advisors recommend artwork location, oversee all shipping and art installation of the collection in the UAE, and ensure excellent presentation. 


Art Commissions in the UAE

With extensive experience advising on art across the GCC – such as providing art in Dubai, Riyadh and Doha – Artelier is accustomed to commissioning artworks that are customised to the project, and create impact. 


Artelier oversees the commissioning process to develop personalised artworks for clients in the UAE. After creating concepts, we develop artworks with artists, conduct studio visits, manage shipping and art installation. We ensure artworks meet the client's ambitions for art projects in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. 

Art Installation & Logistics

With technical expertise in fine art shipping and art installation in the UAE, Artelier's art advisors provide end-to-end project management. This includes specialist knowledge of installing large-scale art, and complying with safety standards. 


All art collections delivered to the UAE are provided with custom fixings and framing, ensuring premium presentation. Our fine art framing consultancy offers an extensive range of custom art frames, including solid metal frames and oak frames with natural finishes, providing refined presentation of artworks in interiors.
