Why setting up an online gallery rather than a physical one?
While physical galleries are struggling in the art world, digital ones are thriving. The founders have witnessed the struggle of art galleries in Paris through relatives. Having a physical gallery is no longer a must have. With galleries closing in a series, the market undergoing a radical transformation. Yvon Lambert, one of the major figures in the art world recently closed his New York gallery last April and last month in Paris. Arttactic surveys have shown that a future generation of art buyers is likely to make their first art purchase online.
24% of 20-30 years old collectors are ready to make their first purchase on- line without seeing the physical piece. However, the online market has a 19% annual growth rate. That is a key fact. Art fair attracted more and more collectors and galleries have to review their entire business model to keep being profitable.

Victor Le Fell
Son of a parisian gallerist and antique dealer, Victor has worked in the Art market since his early age. Graduated from a french business school and passionate about photography, he decided to move to the US where he took part in the development of YellowKorner. Willing to democratize art in companies, he decided to shake up the codes and introduce art through leasing. Artolease is born.
I wanted to introduce something new to companies, democratize fine arts by allowing companies to have temporary collection, rotate them and even buy them if they want! My motivation came first from my passion for art in general. I luckily grew up surrounded by art thanks to my father who is a gallerist in Paris, and early on I started to work within this intimate world. Then, I guess the motivation resulted from two beautiful years working in New York City. I had the chance to partner up with my old friend and have my previous employer invest in this venture. I wanted to reveal original fine art that had never been exhibited in the United States before and offer the public an enjoyable experience. The event went really well and a lot of people were thrilled by most of the art showcased. Victor Le Fell
