The Carré d'artistes® concept

"Art shouldn’t just be for the privileged few, it’s for everyone..." Andy Warhol

Carré d’artistes® is all about one thing: making art accessible to all. An ambitious, generous project that respects the artists involved.

Carré d'artistes® makes contemporary art available to all

Because contemporary art should not be just for an elite group, Carré d’artistes® offers a veritable alternative to the art market. For us, making art accessible means offering unique and original artworks at affordable prices. Buying an artwork in Carré d´artistes® physical or online galleries means that you are part of the process of making contemporary art more obtainable.

A size - A price


Carré d'artistes® only offers unique and original artworks

Because art is an endless source of emotion, Carré d’artistes® galleries make each visit a memorable experience. With regular new exhibitions and artistic events, there is always something new to see. Carré d’artistes® eliminates the middleman, bringing art directly to the art lover.

Carré d'artistes® supports artists and creation

Carré d’artistes® permanently exhibits 600 painters from all over the world (France, United States, Spain, Netherlands, Italy, China, the United Kingdom etc.). Our 35 international art galleries therefore offer artists global visibility. All artworks are unique, authentic and certified.

We maintain a close, long-term relationship with our contemporary artists. Whatever their background, artists are treated with no discrimination regarding style or technique and reflect the diversity of contemporary creation. New artists are featured in our galleries every month.


The story

Carré d’artistes® was created in 2001 by Stéphanie Tosi and Patrice Martineau, both senior managers with an international food company. Having joined the Academy of Fine Arts at a very young age, Stéphanie has always been passionate about art. Alongside her passion, she is a business school graduate and after several years as a Director of Sales decided to create Carré d'artistes®.

She subsequently partnered with Patrice Martineau, who supported and assisted in the creation of this innovative concept.

The first result was born on September 11, 2001, with the opening of the first Carré d'artistes® gallery, in Aix-en-Provence.

This significant date has not had the slightest negative influence on the founders as Carré d'artistes® has undergone incredible development ever since and now counts 35 contemporary art galleries all around the world.
