Collectionair is a safe platform for art lovers and collectors to buy and sell, swap and borrow art from emerging art markets, with an initial focus on African and Middle Eastern art. We offer our users affordable art of quality that is hard to find and allow them to trade both new and pre-loved artworks by facilitating authenticity checks, valuation, condition reports, insurance and shipping.
Collectionair positions itself as the preferred destination to discover art from emerging countries. In order to bring our users the best offering, our network of international curators carefully select the artworks listed on Collectionair and focus on established and emerging artists from emerging art markets that few people have access to. We curate artworks pricing from $500 to $50,000, with a focus on art below $10,000, but never compromise on quality.
In addition, we empower art lovers and collectors by providing them with engaging and relevant content (art tips, art news, how to value art, which artist to buy, etc.), that will help them to make an informed decision when trading art on our platform.
Collectionair makes the process of trading art painless. Our team and partners (art valuation specialists, insurance providers, shipping companies, etc.) make the Collectionair experience enjoyable and reassuring. In a few clicks our users can either Buy, Rent and/or Swap an artwork they love, or list an Artwork to Sell, Rent and/or Swap. In a few days, we get the listed artworks approved and advise on valuation. We make the condition report process fast and easy, and provide our support when it comes to shipping and insurance.
The product we are building is a B2C and C2C marketplace, that allows users not only to buy and sell but also to swap and borrow works of art.
We launched a Beta site at the end of March, that enables users to buy art. The selling and swapping functions will be available by beginning of June. The rental function will be enabled at a later stage of our development.
Because we believe that content marketing is key to our business, we also launched our blog mid-April. The Collectionair Art Stories section offers unique content to our users both in written and video forms.
