About

We are two partners, Lewis and Cécile, and launched Artsiia more than a year ago, in June 2017, from the 9 m² of a small office!
We are both closely linked to the artistic world: writing, photography, drawing... And we already knew many artists at the time.

 

At the base of the project, we wanted to create a platform for artists to meet and form a community of mutual aid and sharing. Over the years, we have understood most of the problems artists face: difficulty in making themselves known, in understanding the administrative side of having a status, in finding a market place where to sell that is not too selective or too expensive for beginners...

 

Today, we have set ourselves the goal of helping artists make a living from their art. For that, as we are not artists who live from our art, we arm ourselves with patience, research and meetings. There have been and will continue to be long discussions with artists to better understand the milieu and all the tricks, skills and knowledge that an artist must have to embark on professionalization.

 

The team 

Lewis is well versed in business and development. It is he, with the help of two external developers, who takes care of creating the basis of the project: the website, and all the tools that are and will be there over time. He's the originator of the project, he's the driving force behind the team!
 

Cécile has trained online in several fields (marketing, mastering digital tools...), because at the base, she has a training in environment: nothing to do with art. She mainly deals with content on Artsiia, and communication.
Together, we form a very tight team. We have participated in several competitions, we have had long discussions (in pairs, a meeting is above all a discussion !) on our objectives and our strategy : we know how to question ourselves and not let ourselves be defeated by failures ;)

 

Artsiia : the site

The Artsiia website, launched in February and updated in July, contains :
 

- A community network, with personal profiles of artists, galleries and works. Everyone can add creations (in images and text) and comment, share, add to favorites. There's also an answering service.
- Shops: each artist can open his shop for free and sell his creations, thanks to a wallet system. For more information on the subject, go to the FAQ!
- A blog, where are added all the articles (texts and video) written by us, on several subjects: testimonies, interviews, and advice and information on art and artists!

 

We are always open to discussion! In the contact part, by message on Facebook or on Artsiia messaging, come and chat with us! There is always much to learn from talking with artists and art lovers ;)
