She realized that despite many sacrifices, Artists face modest and uncertain incomes, challenging searches for exhibition spaces, damage or theft of their Artwork, difficult international network management, etc. The probability for an Artist to maintain a stable international career is low.
Also, Artists who succeeded in building an artistic career by exhibiting in different museums and galleries, and by selling their Artworks at auctions and to major collectors, end up generally and increasingly outside of the Fine Arts market.
“Painting was my whole life and Art-Trope took its place naturally as the unique solution for Artists who wish to live of their Artworks. I know nothing else that solves the problems of international artistic career management on the long-term.” Virginie Tison, Founder and President of Art-Trope
★ Her background
Art-Trope reflects many years of experience and expertise including those of Virginie Tison,
Founder and President:
- 4 years of research and experimentation in the Fine Arts market in New York and Paris
- 1 year of collaboration with Swiss Bank of Geneva (BCGE) to represent Art-Trope, and
- 4 years of professional experience in Investor Relations to gain first-hand knowledge on the best techniques of business management.
Virginie’s creativity, combined with her human, artistic and professional experience, resulted in Art-Trope. It takes into account the Artist’s dilemma of devoting themselves to their creativity, while promoting their Artwork in the global Fine Arts market.
Her one and only philosophy is: Let Artists Create!
Virginie was an Operations Manager at Chuzhen Institut where she trained in management and customer relationship management.
In order to develop Art-Trope, she then specialized in Investor Relations with major groups such as GIE Axa or Stallergenes Greer. She also graduated in Investor Relations by the CLIFF at the Paris-Dauphine University in December 2016.
