Our Vision

To deliver a trusting, more accessible art world

We believe that everyone involved in the global art market can work together and collaborate more effectively by using reliable data that is permanently connected to each artwork.

By enhancing connections and boosting confidence in transactions, the costs and risks associated with owning, buying and selling art can be reduced, creating new opportunities for growth.

Our Story

Coming from the world of payments and settlements of high value financial transactions, Artclear’s founders identified why the art world still struggled with high transaction costs and heavy paperwork, lacking the level of security and accessibility that underpins modern financial systems.

Artclear was born, providing the missing link for the art world: our unique fingerprinting technology, developed in partnership with HP Inc exclusively for Artclear. This innovation protects against fraud, forgery and substitution, while connecting art world participants to reliable data about individual works of art, empowering the art market to reach new horizons. 

Today, Artclear is setting a new standard for art identification, paving the way for a more secure and accessible art market.
