Who We Are

ARTIANA is a click and mortar hybrid auction house, that provides a credible and engaging auction platform sans boundaries. We deliver to a global audience the excitement of art auctions through the convenient medium of timed online auctions, held using our state-of-the-art proprietary auction application software together with previews at our viewing gallery, in the heart of Dubai’s downtown business district. We offer bespoke solutions and extensive support to our clients leveraging on our in-house storage, delivery, logistic infrastructure, and an expanding network of client service centre locations.

We are constantly focused on making markets and adding new collecting categories on our platform. Several new benchmarks were set, and record prices for artists achieved in our auctions over the past years, attracting thousands of first-time clients. We attribute this success to our strong digital tools that cater to our growing global audience, the strength of our brand, our trusted client relationships built over time, and our pioneering No Buyer’s Premium policy which has redefined and streamlined the transactional process, by significantly reducing the impact cost and creating a worthwhile opportunity for international collectors.

In addition to auctions, we engage with our clients through Private Sales. The enhanced capacity of this vertical also includes exhibitions, allowing us to present selling exhibitions across a wide range of collecting categories while bringing to them our passion and decades of expertise and knowledge.
