Artiana is a homegrown online art auction house that specializes in modern and contemporary South Asian works.  Founded by art connoisseur Mr Lavesh Jagasia, this click and mortar hybrid combines a viewing gallery with state of the art proprietary auction application software. This system allows buyers to bid online at their comfort. All prospective buyers must register with an Artiana ID and are then verified before they use the online bidding system.

 “Our system is built to make the whole process extremely convenient for the buyer” says Lavesh. They can view the collection by appointment at our downtown Dubai gallery and then participate in an online auction either via desktop or through our mobile app on android and ios. Artiana's USP is 'What You Bid For Is What You Pay'. "We do not charge any Buyer's Premium which usually ranges between 20-40% of the Winning Bid or Hammer Price thus reducing the transaction costs considerably and creating a worthwhile opportunity for collectors" he adds.

Although open to viewing, the gallery offers only two exclusive auctions a year. Its last auction fetched a little over $1 million dollars.
