LUXURY ART. CURATED.
Citizen Atelier is an online art gallery that brings together contemporary photography and works on paper from a range of international artists, both emerging and established. Named one of the top online art galleries by Elle Décor, and featured in publications such as Vogue, MyDomaine and The Zoe Report, Citizen Atelier was founded in 2014 with the vision to inspire with art and make the art buying process easier and more accessible. Pieces from our collection hang in the homes of some of Hollywood’s biggest names, as well as luxury hotels and Fortune 500 companies worldwide.
Structured as an online marketplace, Citizen Atelier offers a selection of handpicked open-edition and limited-edition works of art. Our exclusive limited-edition pieces are printed and signed by the artists in their respective studios worldwide.
An art dealer from the East Coast with a love of fresh peonies, gallery openings and interior design, had a vision of creating an online studio, or “atelier”, to showcase timeless art from around the world. The belief that art gives breadth to a home and reflects what we love inspired this dream to take form.
What followed would be an adventure searching across some of the best international galleries, attending lovely vernissages and visiting charming pied-à-terres, all to find inspiring artists from all walks of life and curate a beautiful collection of art.
Each piece in the Atelier is carefully chosen and made only with the highest quality materials like cotton rag, museum quality photo paper and archival canvases. All are hand-finished to perfection, demonstrating that love is indeed in the details.
