Guiding artists and enabling them to evolve is one of Carré d’artistes’ main purposes.  Who better to testify than a rewarded and intuitive artist? Discover the impressions of the French artist Richard Poumelin on his relationship with Carré d’artistes.


What did Carré d’artistes change for you, regarding your career as an artist?

Before working with Carré d’artistes, I had never done any private viewing. Since then I have been able to host some, which allowed me to meet my clients.
Moreover, I was used to only working on large formats so this gave me the opportunity to learn how to paint on smaller formats.
Since my collaboration with Carré d’artistes, my work feels more accomplished as training enables me to master my art and technique.

How is your partnership with Carre d’artistes on a daily basis?

I’m more in contact with gallery managers than with the headquarters.
Nonetheless, my questions are answered quickly and efficiently.
My current relationship with Carré d’artistes meets my expectations.
