Shifting the boundaries of alternativ investing is key for us. Especially when it comes to sustainable growth of next level values driven by newcomer art production and galleries. It’s a seed you put into the future growth of a vibrant next level art community.

Call it your art of investing.

Far off from fixed interests we selectively give way to the very heart of cultural capital: contemporary art. As a mostly illiquid asset class it seldomly diversifies portfolios and falls therefore short for outperformance. This is where ARTNODEs can amplify.

ARTNODEs generate a passive income stream that is a store of value and exchange for bridging lacking funds of galleries or even donate them exclusively to the beloved artist.

Within the intersection of top notch technology and real world art experience we provide added value for investors with cultural esteem.

An Investment in ARTNODEs goes beyond capital. It thrives a sustainable relationship that foremost sparks joy.
