artContraire's World

Who are We?

artContraire Daniel Leiter
Introduction artContraire
Welcome to the website of artContraire. Our goal is to use this site to present unique artists as well as to support young artists and at the same time to provide a high quality selection of art for you. By purchasing an artwork at artContraire you are not only making an investment for yourself, you also invest in the future of the artist. Art has become a business. The confrontation with the ideas and artist’s personality are increasingly getting lost. That’s why we want to give you an insight into the world of the artist and his works. artContraire wants to go different ways than traditional art dealers, among others by giving you the opportunity to meet your favorite artist in person. Another concern of us is to support people who are in a difficult situation and are of special need. We donate 5% of our annual profits to social institutions. Are you interested? Let our young enthusiastic team guide your through our virtual gallery. Or take a look directly at our artworks shop and become a part of artContraire.
Our artists go bold new ways with us. Here we want to present you a selection of the unique artworks we have to offer. Explore all our artworks in our shop.
We are proud to present you our talents. Artists we ourself admire, are friends with and love to work with.
