Revolutionise Your Art Collection


1 Mar 2023

Building an art collection can be incredibly time-consuming, with unnecessarily high costs. As we work closely with art professionals from across the world, we decided to change this paradigm and focus on implementing an art collection system that runs smoothly and effectively. We also explored a few private art collections owned by diverse families and personalities who inspired us with their unique approach to collecting rare and remarkable works of art.

Make art collection system management easier with our step-by-step guide:

Register and join the community: We work with art collectors and professionals from all across the globe, who trust our system to make their work run more effectively. Simply register and become part of the community to begin your art sourcing journey.Instructing a professional to try and track down a specific artwork and then make a connection with the owner can take months – or result in a complete dead end. ARTBANX greatly increases the scope of your network by instantly putting your search request to our global network of members.

Place a request for the artwork you are looking for: Establishing your search criteria is a simple, straightforward process that can swiftly be completed within the ARTBANX platform. Once your request has been sent, other members’ collections are scanned in a matter of seconds and the results are presented to you in an attractive, easy-to-digest format.

A match is made: We search our network, which is updated monthly with new artworks, on your behalf. You are notified when a match is made. No one has to know of your art sourcing ambitions – just as potential sellers’ details are 100% secure and anonymous until a transaction is agreed upon by both parties. It’s the equivalent of placing a digital blindfold on both buyer and seller and only removing it if and when both parties are ready.

Here are three diverse families and personalities that have inspired us with their noteworthy private collections.

The Rubell Family Collection
