More on Artfetch:

Artfetch is here to change the way the world discovers and collects art by emerging and young artists. Artfetch was founded in 2012 by Patricia Tsouros and Katie Tsouros, both art world veterans. Patricia has been an advisor to many collectors, and perceived a vital need to make access to rising art stars easier and more dynamic. Katie, whose gallery KTcontemporary showcased the work of emerging artists, realised that not only was there a keen interest in their work, but also that that interest was global. Their vision has been to open up the work of the newest and most exciting generation of contemporary artists to new audiences. The website has been designed to ensure you can buy with absolute confidence and security, which makes Artfetch the place to go if you love art, and you want to see, buy and collect the best of the next generation.
