Art to be seen online, in galleries and at numerous art fairs!
Envie d’art, founded in 2001, is regarded as a pioneer in the online art market: it was indeed one of the very first sites selling art online – then referred to as virtual galleries or cyber-galleries – to be launched in France, dreamed up by Yann Bombard and his wife Cathy, and anticipating the evolutions of art e-commerce that we have seen over the last few years.
Today, Envie d’art is still a website (which was redesigned early 2015), but also 4 art galleries: three in Paris and one in London, where selected works by contemporary artists from across the world can be seen in a relaxed atmosphere, and bought at reasonable prices (ranging from EUR 1,000 to EUR 10,000).
Envie d’art participates in over 20 contemporary art fairs every year across the world; its founder also created several art fairs, like Fotofever Art Fair in Paris and Brussels, or the NEW Art Fair at the Espace Pierre Cardin in Paris, with the ambition to « change each visitor into an art collector ».
Whatever the medium or the place, in their galleries or art fairs, the founders’ creed remains the same: reach out to all art lovers -people buying art for the first time or experienced collectors- and offer carefully selected, accessible artworks at reasonable prices. A simple, unpretentious approach, making every occasion an opportunity to buy art!
