WELCOME TO VELVENOIR
WHAT DRIVES US
We believe, contemporary art from career and indigenous artist is for everyone and we made it our mission to contribute to the deconstruction of the belief that “Art just decorates the walls!” For us, Original Art has a remarkable effect on people’s live – from the aesthetic to the growing financial value – at VELVENOIR we pride ourselves to guide our clients with years of experiences, best practice protocols, know-how, strong built relationships within the art world, international resources and passion for contemporary art – both from the primary and secondary art market.
HOW WE SERVE OUR COLLECTORS; CLIENTS & PROJECTS
Our goal is to change the perception of how to live, work, collect and experience contemporary art. Therefore, we handle each enquiry from already existing or new clients – personally and confidentially. Understanding our clients; their wishes, requirements, lifestyle and already existing art collection, artist and artwork preferences, forms the foundation of our work. Our entire approach consists of six phases in which we guide our clients from the initial art consultation, art concept / collection direction, artwork suggestions, art acquisition and negotiations, procurement, framing to on-site supervision of installing the art professionally and documentations. Those phases are central to us and the way we work with our clients on their residential, corporate, hospitality, public art and private art collection development
