Hello, it‘s time to introduce ourselves: We are Benjamin Gibtner, our printmaker and Daniel Cid Gómez, our gallerist. We knew back then, we had to create an art platform. As if it was for ourselves and for our art loving friends. The art world was never in need of disruption. We simply wanted to preserve what worked and change what did not work. We wanted to defend the artists‘ interests: Since those days we truly believe that trust and fair treatment attract the best artists. We also knew that only talented artists do attract art lovers and art collectors.
So, why not creating a home, where being unique defines everything?
Now it was all about finding the answers to the 3 most important and yet simple questions:
The why is easy to explain
: People live happier with unique art. Art lovers are unique. Artists are unique.
That‘s why ARTOUI is the HOME OF UNIQUE ART.
The how is a never-ending process.
To make an art audience really, really happy, we wanted to create a truly unique experience. We wanted art lovers to see immediately that artists feel good in our home.
We began developing ARTOUI.com and our ARTOUI Quality Promise based on: Unique talents, unique materials, unique workflows and unique production techniques.
In short, we needed to know more about art lovers and artists. Yes, we had already gained experience in the secondary art market and organized well visited exhibitions. Newspaper and magazine articles had been written about us. We had worked with famous artists and international brands before. We had already developed materials beyond the gallery standard. But we needed an artist‘s perspective in the team. That‘s why András Dobi, our awarded fine art photographer joined ARTOUI. In his lugagge, a clear vision. That‘s when we were ready to go deep into the art curation process. Connecting artists and art lovers became our main goal.
As a team, we know how to empower artists. We know how to match motifs and materials. We know how to promote and sell art. Together, we know how to treat artists in a fair and transparent way.
Every day, we are on the lookout for artists that the general public will love tomorrow.
Yes, the same unique artists that art lovers discover today at ARTOUI.
