ART TRAFFIK from A to K – The concept
The uninhibited purchase of art and the very first community platform dedicated to the DISCOVERY, SALE AND RESALE of artworks, both physically and online.
What is Art Traffik ? What does becoming an Art Traffiker mean ? Let me explain to you what’s hidden behind such a deliberately provocative name…
Art Traffik is the result of hearing all too often certain phrases spoken by friends and family, which I continue to hear, still:
" To buy an artwork one must be a connoisseur” or “I don’t understand the pricing of artworks, it’s nonsense ”
" Buying an artwork is an investment for which there are risks. Is the artist listed on the market ? "
" I love art ; I’d love to purchase an artwork, but I don’t dare "
" You can’t’ find anything for less than 100,000 euros » or « If it isn’t worth at least 100,000 euros, it isn’t art "
" It’s complicated and costly to try to resell an artwork, unless you’re selling a Picasso or if you’re a reputable art collector "
Art Traffik was thus born from the will to un-inhibit the purchase of art for everyone, and prove that we can shift the paradigm in buying art…or simply be nurtured by it, simply for the fun of it. This is why we are much more than just an artwork retail website…
Art Traffik hence allows art lovers, occasional buyers or well-informed collectors to discover new artists, to purchase their artworks, and also to resell artworks in their possession, without commission.

What does being an Art Traffiker mean?
First of all, it means loving Art…to appreciate it, without necessarily being an “expert”.
Secondly, it means sharing the same vision as Art Traffik by taking part in it, by being active:
- Assessing, first and foremost, your emotions when staring at an artwork, way before calculating its “worth”
- Having the will to defend, promote and encourage artists
- Sharing the artists you love and your precious findings to the widest audience possible
To love the creations of an artist, to want to help and encourage that artist, you must first participate in gaining him/her recognition which will in turn boost the sales of his/her artworks.
Art Traffik wants to un-inhibit the purchase of art, in every sense of the word : by simplifying, promoting and demystifying it.
