ART CONSULTING FOR ARTISTS AND COLLECTORS
At ARTOUI, we promote the work of both emerging and established artists through professional quality fine art shows and exhibitions, art representation, curation and advising. We empower artists with the necessary professional tools to drive the growth of their businesses and create value through their artistic practice. We increase awareness on unrecognized talented artists, which helps artists and collectors alike. Through our art network, artists increase their global reach and sell more art.

Art has taken on lasting significance with private collectors, family offices and companies. Collecting art contributes to a diversified portfolio. We are able to execute client mandates to strategically realign collections and evaluate thematic collections.
WHAT IS THE ARTOUI ART PLATFORM?
At ARTOUI, we want artists to benefit from their creativity. That’s why we have put together a group of art loving investors and created a disruptive platform where artists can sell their artworks free of charge.

We support artists with image videos, artist interviews and effective marketing. Thanks to our transparent and fair business model, artists focus on creation, earn well above average and even make money when our customers decide to buy a frame together with their artwork.
ARTISTS CREATE. WE DO THE REST.
On the ARTOUI Art Platform, established as well as young, talented artists sell their originals and may offer selected artworks as limited editions on our exclusive materials. Once an artist has been curated by our curation team, for every single artwork it’s 100% artist’s choice: Which of our materials best matches the artwork? What sizes do look perfect? Is a handfinished surface recommendable? Art lovers find a curated selection where imagery and materials are the perfect fit.

ARTOUI curators explore unique art from different styles and mediums. Art collectors will discover painters, photographers and sculptors. New talents and artists on the rise. Exciting new styles and artists shaping the landscape of contemporary art.
HIGH-END ART PRODUCTIONS: CAPTIVATING ART MEETS EXCLUSIVE MATERIALS.
We like to curate artists with unusual Bio. Not infrequently with an unusual choice of materials.

This is also reflected in our Limited Editions and Tailored Art:
ARTOUI is an art production company with in-house manufacture facilities for exclusive materials and refined surfaces. We ensure excellent picture quality combined with long-lasting durability. We offer to enhance artworks by creating finishing layers in German craftmanship quality.

Glass, wood, ceramics, concrete, stone, aluminum and other smooth or uneven surfaces are just some examples for our wide material selection. The combination of imagery and material create a haptic, sensible experience.
Our top-notch printing technology adds unmatched colour contrast and clarity. We offer an array of thickness and mounting options to fit every décor and budget. The rich color density of our prints is akin to high-definition TV. As final layer we are able to create different degrees of handcrafted matte or gloss effect.

ARTOUI is artist’s choice for some of the most acclaimed international photographers.

ARTOUI exclusive materials ensure a sense of luxury. We create individually customized art to see and enjoy. Our work is visible and tangible for art lovers all around the world.
