ABOUT AVANT ARTE
Avant Arte wants to make art radically more accessible for a new generation. We began as a cult blog of contemporary artists and grew organically into the world’s largest and most engaged online art community, with more than 2 million of our followers under the age of 35. We collaborate with iconic contemporary artists like Jenny Holzer, Cai Guo-Qiang, Claire Tabouret and Hank Willis Thomas, making their work more accessible to younger collectors through sculpture editions, print editions and unique works on paper of exceptional quality.
We have built a highly engaged community of next-generation art collectors, which means our artist launches are heavily oversubscribed, with many behaving more like fashion drops, selling out in seconds.
Backed by early investors in companies like Skype, Farfetch, Glossier and Shopify (including Bessemer Venture Partners and Local Globe) as well as being featured on Otta’s 2022 Rocket List, we’re a team of just over 80 building one of the fastest growing tech companies in culture.
Our vision is to inspire a generation of millions of young people who love art like they love music and who collect works like they build their wardrobe.
We’re a small team with really big ambitions, both for what we want to achieve and also the environment we’re building. We want to create a company that remains thoughtful as we scale and tries to be genuinely progressive in how we operate. We want people to really own what they do and be given the autonomy and freedom to make mistakes, learn, and create something meaningful.
We all work incredibly hard because we really care about what Avant Arte is here to do – we’re looking for exceptional people who are proactive, hungry to learn, and want to put their pride in our collective achievements.
We know that creating an inclusive environment that promotes and values diversity is critical if we want to build something with impact and meaning. We believe that having diversity in age, background, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and perspective will make us an infinitely better company. In 2022, we were shortlisted for Women in Tech’s Best Employer - Small Company and Best Benefits.
