About Us

VenoArt LLC. is an online auction house focused on art. Our team of graphic designers, curators, bloggers, and of course -- artists -- engages painters, printmakers, photographers and sculptors from across the globe. We showcase them on our website and hold frequent auctions of their work. We promote and support them, driven by our mission of "Art Without Borders".
VenoArt's collection is wide-ranging, from emerging artists to world masters. It includes donations from the Khonsary family, in memory of their late father. These works are specially curated by the family to promote artists and talent in distance areas.
We collaborate with our artists to market their works successfully. Our auction pricing aims at affordability. We offer art lovers with modest budgets unprecedented opportunities to collect and enjoy.
We empower artists by eliminating the "middle man" in the sales process.
We empower buyers with affordable auctions where everyone can find what inspires them.
