An agency for the most talented artists
The thought leaders. Role Models. Pioneers. The determined. The independent thinkers. The fighters and the true believers.
These are the artists we invest in. They’re extremely rare. And we’re ecstatic when we find them.
Founded in 2015, MTArt Agency is a certified B Corp®. award-winning agency for the most exciting up and coming visual artists worldwide. The art industry typically concentrates on selling art on walls, MTArt focuses on investing and supporting the person behind it. Every month, the agency reviews 200 portfolios of artists. Its selection committee chooses artists with innovative techniques, inspiring content and strong messaging.
For the artists who sign with the agency, MTArt covers their studio costs, sells their works, implements cultural & commercial partnerships and offers press exposure. This is how we accelerate their artistic reputation, visibility and success.
On average, MTArt Artists have seen their works grow 150% in value year-on-year while signed to the agency, gain credibility in the industry and increase their exposure by 370%. MTArt Agency artists have partnered with Cannes Film Festival, brands including Aston Martin and Chloé, government bodies including the Mayor of Paris, Mayor of London and Camden Council, transit hubs such as Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport and Saint- Lazare train station, as well as, with museums, auction houses, and private collectors. We now have two offices – in London and Paris, and want MTArt Agency to eventually rival the major Hollywood talent agencies.

An advocate for artists since a young age, Marine Tanguy managed her first gallery at age 21 and opened her first art gallery in Los Angeles at age 23.

Clients love to work with the agency to identify the next rising star in the art world. They trust its rigorous selection and the expertise of the team to integrate their art in the most extraordinary contexts.

Its artists enhance your homes, cities, screens, and advertising spaces with their art. They broadcast their inspiring messages and visuals for you to lead a more visually inspiring life. Marine was awarded Forbes 2018 30 under 30 Europe: Art & Culture and UK entrepreneur of the year for the 2019 NatWest Everywoman Awards.
