People are afraid of the unknown. The inherent human reaction to the unknown is to say no. We embrace the unknown and we embrace artists and clients that embrace the unknown. The unknown is innovation and innovation drives conversation.


At unknownart, quality is measured by how comfortable or uncomfortable an artist or art piece can make you feel. Love it or hate it, that’s what we love.


Whether you are a seasoned collector looking for something off the beaten path, or a novice aficionado with a gut feeling for what’s exceptional – we’d love to be there alongside you, on your path to a more inspired life.
