Collecting art is such an exciting journey

Art Collecting for aspiring, established collectors and anyone who wants to get involved

Since 2014 we had the pleasure to join a variety of clients, interior designers and collectors on this exciting path


“If buying art is to matter to us deeply, then it has to engage with our emotions and bring something to what one might as well, and with no supernatural associations whatsoever, call our souls.“ – Alain de Botton 

Are you currently looking for an artwork from a certain artist ? Are you interested in contemporary art but don’t know where to start ? Have you visited a couple of galleries and art fairs – yet you don’t feel comfortable asking for the price or more details about the artist ?

Knowing how intimidating the art world can be, we at VELVENOIR made it our mission to personally support you on this exciting journey. When buying art – together we will establish a taste on what you are looking for, we get to know you, the art you’ve already bought or artists you love or have been following. We will literally guide you through each step of the collecting process, with transparency and discretion.

Our role as art consultant is to help you find YOUR perfect artwork, an artwork that reflects you (lifestyle, desires, dreams, motivations etc.) and ensure to make this process a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Since you are going to live with the artwork, in your home, it’s best to buy what you truly love – that’s key when starting your own art collection.

Please know, at VELVENOIR our art experts, attend art fairs and are heavily involved within the local and international art scene, going to exhibitions and artists studios to ensure we find the perfect art for you from emerging, establish and indigenous artists.
