Company Directory / Art Discovery Limited

Business Description

"Founded in 2011 and based in London and Miami, Artfinder connects people to artists and art. We are funded by WELLINGTON PARTNERS and private investors in the UK, US and Switzerland.

Artfinder is the art marketplace. We sell art that changes lives. Art that awakens our imagination, transforms our homes and expresses who we really are. At Artfinder we’re building a world where artists can make a living doing what they love. Where anyone can easily find and buy original art, no matter their taste or budget.

Direct from the artist to your home. Whether you’re an art lover or art curious, we connect you directly with independent artists around the world. Every single piece is original and signed by the artist, carrying it’s own unique story.

A sustainable art market for all. We founded Artfinder because artists exist everywhere - as do people who value authentic, handmade works of art. We believe in ‘made to last,’ in ethical production, in building a business that makes all of our lives better by supporting creativity in communities around the world.
Fueled by our community of artists, we believe that buying art should be as enjoyable as living with art. No pretense, no pomp, just great art. Simple."

Founded by Swedish entrepreneur Jonas Almgren in March 2013. Artfinder claims to have 500,000 subscribers worldwide, with 8,500 artists selling their works on the platform.Dec. 16, 2016: Artfinder announced that it has raised $2.2 million (£1.8 million) from WilliamTunstall-Pedoe - founder of Evi Technologies, which later became Amazon Alexa - and venture capital firm Oxford Capital.
