On IdeelArt, art collectors will find work from some of the best abstract artists in the world. Whether you are an art lover who’s eager to better understand our curation process, or an abstract artist that is interested in joining our great team, below is all information you need about our selection criteria and the services that we provide to both ‘represented’ and ‘exhibited’ artists.
‘Represented’ artists are usually established and mid-career abstract artists who are carefully selected by IdeelArt; exclusively on the basis of the quality and reputation of their artwork. They are not only displayed on IdeelArt, but also actively represented on the web. Read more below
Access to IdeelArt’s e-commerce functionalities, which allow for the displaying and selling of artwork via the platform, is also granted to ‘exhibited’ artists. These artists are selected according exclusively to the quality of their work and curated by a selection committee which comprises a number of represented artists. Read more below.
While our joining invitation criteria are flexible, represented artists are usually mid-career and established with work already present in famous public/corporate collections, museums, and/or actively represented by at least one reputed gallery. Also, and probably more importantly, IdeelArt loves their work and wants to actively promote it to its fan base.
Represented artists benefit from a large range of digital representation services:
Displayed, promoted and distributed on the web
Our digital marketing, aimed specifically at enhancing the artists’ online visibility, includes:
In addition to the above, we actively display and sell represented artists’ artwork on other reputable marketplaces.
We also monitor online art dictionaries, directories and other informative websites to ensure that the artist is present (where relevant) and correctly represented.
Displayed, promoted and distributed on IdeelArt's platform
IdeelArt manages a selection of at least 20 artwork visuals, and ensures that the artist’s bio, CV and news are regularly updated and published on the platform.
Represented artists also benefit from enhanced visibility via:

Fees and Delivery
There are no membership or joining fees. IdeelArt is remunerated purely by a fee charged on each transaction.
Artists handle their physical inventory and arrange delivery; this reduces logistical issues, allows the artists to retain full control over their physical work and provides our clients with certainty over the originality of the artwork.
How to join
Represented artists normally join by exclusive invitation from IdeelArt. However, if you are interested in our unique digital representation services, please feel free to get in touch.
Less established abstract artists who are producing excellent quality artwork can request to join IdeelArt and benefit from the services of our fully-fledged e-commerce platform.
They first need to be approved by our selection committee which, as mentioned above, consists of several represented artists. We use this process to ensure consistency in the quality of the artwork that is displayed on IdeelArt.
Curated artists can open their own e-gallery on the IdeelArt platform, benefitting from our display and payment services. They can manage their visuals (unlimited, with a minimum of 20) directly through a dedicated back office.
Each artwork is curated and will only be displayed if approved by IdeelArt.
The management of the artists' profile information (biography, CV) is performed by IdeelArt.
Prices are naturally determined by the artists, although IdeelArt reserves the right to advise changes should any appear unrealistic.
IdeelArt manages all payments and cash flows.
