Earlier this year, HOFA’s flagship gallery hosted an inaugural exhibition for the official launch of ARTCEls, who currently hold the XXI portolio, serving as investment brokers for subscribing art investors. Founded by a commodities trader, Gijs de Viet and HOFA’s Co-Founder, Elio D’Anna, ARTCELS was created “to make blue chip-art investments more accessible to younger, tech-savvy audiences around the world.” This makes it the world’s first asset-based contemporary art exhibit, meaning that viewers can invest in exhibited artworks by buying shared. ‘XXI,’ the virtual exhibit will also allow viewers to invest in the exhibitions curated art portfolio.

Founders anticipate that this event will introduce more art investors to the platform internationally, as well as allow art investors to continue their work during the pandemic. Explaining what ARTCELS has to offer art investors, Elio D’Anna says, “ARTCELS’ first portfolio of works, ‘XXI’, was carefully selected for its high-yield potential. Our goal is to ensure that our investors receive great returns and more importantly, can continue to enjoy their art investments through these new virtual exhibitions, especially during the pandemic.”
