« Great artworks are only great because they are accessible and understood by everyone » Léon Tolstoï
Beginning as a young student at the Academy of Fine Arts, Stéphanie Tosi, co-creator of Carré d’artistes, has always had a passion for art. After graduating from business school and several years working as a sales director in an international company, she decided to embark on the ambitious project of Carré d'artistes .
In 2001, Carré d’artistes was born, with the opening of the first gallery in Aix-en-Provence.
Since then, Carré d’artistes has continued to develop, to include more than 30 contemporary art galleries in France and abroad.
Todays, our gallery network is the largest art promoter in the world, under the influence of French culture.
And the adventure continues with scheduled openings for the comming months !
Contemporary art is not exclusively for the elite, and Carré d’artistes participates in the discovery of contemporary art, by providing quality artworks at reasonable prices.
Carré d’artistes exhibits different styles in order to promote diversity and show new artists.
In fact, everyone can love art without barriers.
In order to make the choice easier, Carré d’artistes sets the price of an artwoek dependent on its size. For example, an artwork of 5x5’’ will cost 95€ (150$), regardless of the artist or the technique used.
Regardless of their experience, Carré d’artistes makes sure to work directly with its artists through every step.
A long term and close relationship is built between them and Carré d’artistes.
Todays, Carré d’artistes permanently features more than 600 talented artists from all over the world.
The international Carré d’artistes art galleries network and the online gallery offer contemporary artists worldwide visibility; and provide them with an amazing opportunity to make a living from their passion.
Making art accessible, without forgetting about quality.
At Carré d’artistes, the recruitment process of an artist is strict.
After a rigorous selection process by our artistic department, the remaining artists are reviewed by the Selection Committee according to demanding criteria.
Finally, every artwork sent by the chosen artists is examined to ensure quality.
With Carré d’artistes, you can be assured that artworks are unique, original and certified. In other words, you know only one copy of each artwork exists.
Our contemporary artworks are exhibited in Carré d’artistes’ network of galleries and on the online gallery.
In each gallery, 10 to 15 artists are permanently displayed.
Once an artist is successful in the galleries, they have the opportunity to be present on our online gallery as well.
On the online gallery, more than 100 artists are permanently exhibited.
This rotation enables artists to be exposed to new audiences, and for our clients to be able to discover new artworks regularly.
Carré d’artistes, is a collective venture which reflects the diversity of contemporary creation.
