Founder Marek Claassen comments : “I saw Limna as an opportunity to work especially closely with the entire community of living contemporary artists, galleries, and curators with the goal of creating a fairer, accessible, and transparent art world. This is in the interest of the entire market. Artists can escape the feeling that some unknown power controls their creative lives. Gallerists will find that more and more people are interested and can access art with a level of understanding, which means more buyers at fairs and in galleries looking to acquire paintings and objects. And buyers and collectors themselves can benefit from fairer and more transparent pricing, as well as detailed information on the background and trajectory of the artists catching their eye. In this way, we look forward to partnering and collaborating more closely with both leading and emerging figures in the art world to create an industry that is more open and attractive, especially to newcomers.”
