What we do

The art market is doing very well. With a turnover of $68 billion in 2018, it reached almost a new high. Nevertheless, only a handful of artists are profiting from these excellent conditions. 75% of artists earn less than $10.000 per year with their art. Especially for young talents, it is challenging to make a living out of it. Because art enriches the daily life of art lovers all around the globe, being an artist is proving to be a thankless job nowadays.

Velártez is the online art gallery that attempts to change this.

We do not just sell art, but rather, we develop talented artists. We ease their entry into the art market and help them in making a living out of their passion. Our goal is to support them until they get recognized as what they are, namely amazing artists who want to create inspiring and meaningful art that lasts.

In history, there has never been such a variety of art trends and art movements like we are experiencing today. In its holistic diversity, it makes the market for contemporary art challenging to comprehend. Especially for beginners, who are just diving into it, it can be very intimidating to engage with it. Just be patient. Rome was not built within one day, either.

Favorite Artists: Velázquez, Banksy, Claudio Bravo Camus

So many artists were and still are struggling to make a living with their work. Only very few reaped the rewards of their enduring pain. Tragedies like the one of van Gogh are no single cases and break my heart every time I read about them. I want to establish talents before they fall. Favorite Artists: Vincent van Gogh, Jackson Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat

Art has always been my passion. I cannot imagine a life without it, and I don’t want to engage in any work unrelated to it. What more exciting job could there possibly be out there than establishing contemporary artists?

Favorite Artists: Frida Kahlo, Roy Liechtenstein, Wolfgang Tillmans
