◊ What is Citizen Atelier?
Citizen Atelier is more than just an online gallery. It’s a close-knit community that brings together artists and art lovers with one big goal: to inspire with art. Structured as an online marketplace, Citizen Atelier brings together work from both emerging and well-established international artists and photographers. Founded by art dealer Alessandra Salituri in 2014, the Atelier carefully curates an inspiring collection of pieces with a bold and ethereal aesthetic, that are made with only the highest quality materials. All artists ship from their respective locations to ensure each and every piece has the their unique finishing touch. The Atelier hopes to take the guessing work out of finding beautiful art by offering a one-stop marketplace for authentic and one-of-a-kind pieces.
◊ What is a limited-edition print?
Limited-edition indicates that the artist is committed to creating no more than a certain number of prints for that given work. This exclusive nature of a limited-edition print raises its value. Art marked as such comes personally hand-signed and numbered by the artist and are custom-made to order. Once the print is sold out, it can no longer be reproduced. See image listings for edition numbers.

◊ Who did the photography and styling on your site?
Unless otherwise specified, all of our images are original photographs, shot exclusively for Citizen Atelier by a wonderful Canadian team, including photographer Ashley Capp and interior designer/stylist Christine Dovey. Many of the photos were captured at the beautiful Black Rooster Decor boutique in Toronto.
The headshots of Alessandra Salituri and Camille Chacra were taken by Marcel Cristocea, a talented Montreal photographer.
◊ How does shipping work?
