Experiencing the highest growth in the rankings, which Co-Founder Elinor Olisa attributes to the company’s significant focus and investment in both online and offline endeavours, DegreeArt and their complimentary brands (Contemporary Collective, DegreeArt.cn and ArtProQuo all powered by their proprietary technology Artellite) are seeking to create a greater level of transparency across the online art industry, through identify and implementing much needed best practice for artists, galleries and collectors buying and selling online.

By focusing on how the online can support and enhance the offline traditional art market (as opposed to replacing it), Artellite powered galleries seek to successfully combine the fundamental aspects of what makes the art world so important to so many and crucially ensure its legacy. (Elinor Olisa, Co-Founder)
