We are independent from any art expert, dealer, gallery or auction house.
Board of Recommendation
- Aart van Bochove (chairman Bach Society & former CEO Martinair) "An innovative platform for innovative arts."
- Jeroen Krabbé (artist, actor and film director) "An open platform for New Artists: surprising and exciting."
- Simon Levie (former director Rijksmuseum) "A new and transparent way to discover art."
- Jan Six (old master dealer) "An innovative method for artists and contemporary art critics to increase their network and visibility."
We explicitly do not have any active contemporary art experts on our Board of Recommendation due to our independence.
