About us


The idea to start this project dawned on us buying Art to hang in our own home. As you too, we had to face that scrutinising look that gallery owners gave you, as well as the sticker shock when we plucked up the courage to ask for the selling price. Soon we made the decision to contact the artists, to visit hundreds of studios and finding that for every 50 artists we met, there where three who we really loved. Our friends soon began asking for advice… then one of them wanted to purchase a large photograph that we had just bought. Two months later, we quit our jobs and decided to found Envie d'art.

We wish to offer a new vision to approach the world of contemporary art that is open to everyone and welcoming art lovers, established art collectors or art novices who think about bying art for the first time. We will welcome you as you are with an extreme pleasure !

Envie d'art is Cathy, Géraldine, Justine, Victoria, Yann... All moved by a common passion.
