ArtFloor was founded in 2000 by Georges Ranunkel and his associates. The leading structure has been promoting emerging artists for over a decade and a half. Being originally mostly composed of Art dealers, the ArtFloor team also launched a new type of virtual gallery the same year (www.ArtFloor.com)in order to give direct access to their international collectors to the previews of the artists. The website is now considered as a reference for both its selections and Art services.
Their role in promoting artists internationally led them to review over 48.000 applications. The team now advises private and corporate collectors worldwide, using its expertise to build their collections. ArtFloor also works on communications projects based on Art for international companies. It is for instance,appointed by their long-time partner MasterCard to curate the MasterCard Prize for Contemporary Art. The company regularly curates its own or sponsored exhibitions.
Georges Ranunkel was invited to give lectures at Sorbonne University and at IESA in Paris and is a regular contributor tothe Arts sections of various media.
The ArtFloor team is currently working closely with his network of over a 1000 collectors in 18 countries. The structure is French based with collaborators in the US, Europe and the Middle-East.
