about_section_2

We are partnered with the best European galleries

Unlike other platforms, the works presented on Artsper are selected exclusively by the best galleries who have gained recognition across Europe for their work and their commitment to their artists.

All the works on our platform have been through a thorough vetting process: first by the gallery and then by Artsper. Furthermore, each gallery is also carefully reviewed by our panel of experts using a range of criteria: the artists represented, the quality and authenticity of the works, the art fairs it participates in and the way in which it promotes its artists. This demanding selection process guarantees an exceptional quality of works.

In addition, the prices on Artsper are the same as those displayed in the galleries. The only difference being Artsper saves you from making the trip!

François-Xavier Trancart & Hugo Mulliez

Hugo Mulliez

President and co-founder

It was Hugo who first came up with the idea! While working in the e-commerce team at the American investment fund, General Atlantic, he developed an interest in the business models of marketplaces. He quickly discovered a gap in the art market, which had hardly begun exploiting its digital potential. Although his career in finance was on the right track, his passion for entrepreneurship, as well as his conviction that online technologies could make the art market more open to all, led him to take the plunge and start Artsper.

He created its innovative model business model: the company only works directly with art galleries and is focussed on contemporary artwork. He initiated the development of partnerships with the best European galleries in order to guarantee the quality of the works sold on Artsper. Today, Hugo oversees the strategy for Artsper’s ongoing growth and development. He is also in charge of office management and is very attentive to the well-being of his team.

Hugo graduated from EDHEC business school with a degree in finance. When he’s not working on Artsper he enjoys motocross and tennis.
