Two entrepreneurs

Artsper is the brainchild of Hugo Mulliez (27) and François-Xavier Trancart (25). Hugo was at an investment fund in New York as an  intern. He saw the boom in the States for e-commerce sites selling artworks, and recognised that Europe did not have any of the same. On returning to France Hugo, along with co-founder François-Xavier, launched Artsper in 2012. With sites like Artsper and Barnebys, art has now become accessible to everyone.
