THE ART MARKET BEHIND THE SCENES

Artcrater is a discreet network where collectors
can sell and buy artworks
of the most wanted artists from the globe

Gudrun Wurlitzer

Ruth Gudrun Wurlitzer,
collector of contemporary art,
founder of Artcrater

As a collector of contemporary art for many years, I invented Artcrater to relieve the pain of my fellow collectors who – like me – want to sell an artwork once in a while. Auctions are loud, unpredictable and similar to gambling. The risk of harming artists, galleries and the artwork itself is obvious if the artwork is unsold or undersold. For the ease of all, Artcrater now provides a possibility for selling art in a most discrete way, within a trusted community.

Discreetly Icon

SELL DISCREETLY BEHIND THE SCENES

Decide how long your artwork stays in the selling section. If it does not sell within a certain time, you can withdraw it without comment at any time. Nobody will see if it is sold or unsold, and no negative impact on the artwork or the artist occurs.

Purchase Icon

PURCHASE STRICTLY RATED ART

Each purchase comes from a strictly rated choice which is made after evaluations about an artist’s significance and potential for future value.
At the same time purchase gets more relaxed. Members can see artworks offered by other 
members. They can buy in peace from 
home at any time they wish, at a set price. 
No more auction bidding war and 
no unforeseen additional costs.

Artist Icon

MOST WANTED ARTISTS

A constantly evolving artist list is the basis of our sales department. When you start inserting an artist name in the sell artwork section, the names pop up. Users can tell us their favourites. 
If they are not on the list 
Artcrater will check their relevance.

Transparency Icon

TRANSPARENCY FOR ADDITIONAL COSTS

Artcrater has a set commission rate of 10-15% split between both parties. We indicate the due amount together with the price of the artwork.

View Icon

VIEW FOR REAL BEFORE CONFIRMING

For artworks over 100k we will contact you to propose a private viewing in the buyers or sellers area. After you have seen the artwork, you decide if you want to confirm the purchase.

Trustee Icon

TRUSTEE SERVICE

All payments transacted using our service are kept in dedicated accounts until the buyer has approved the artwork.

Blockchain Icon

BLOCKCHAIN ON DEMAND

If desired, you can register your artwork with blockchain technology along to the trading procedure. The provenance of the artwork is then stored in an open registry which makes it easier to resell and prevent fraud, while the owner can stay anonymous.

Arthunter Icon

HUNT SPECIAL ARTWORKS

With Artcrater as single point of contact for the sale, we make selling artworks easier. At the same time we offer the great experience to purchasers of discovering desirable artworks like in an auction catalogue, but without the risk of getting involved into a bidding war and paying high unforeseen additional costs on top.

THE IDEA BEHIND IT

If collectors can sell artworks in a convenient
and sustainable way art gets liquidity and it’s less risky to invest money in art.
This will remove the growing reluctance of collectors to
buy, and fire the whole art market.
If more art is sold, more artists can make a living from it
and inspire the world with their work.

POSITIVE EFFECTS
FOR GALLERIES AND FINE ART DEALERS

Galleries profit from discreet and direct sales via Artcrater,
because no negative effects from bought-ins
at auctions with their negative impact on the market occur.
Fine art dealers, who usually like to buy
works directly from collectors or at auctions, now have
the opportunity to purchase via Artcrater’s collectors’ network
and pay only 5% commission instead 30% premium at an auction.
Above purchasing we also invite secondary
market dealers to sell in our portal.
