About Artelesia

More than just a selling platform, we see Artelesia as an ocean in which every image is an island with a universe of its own. They represent artificial realities constructed through the artist’s imagination. 

We challenge our audience to understand this website, the way they would read a book. This book speaks about images and the way we interpret them. Through combinations of colours, themes and composition, images tell stories. Strong images, however, do more — they recreate them. How?
The artist’s state of mind at the moment he creates defines the atmosphere of his work. Through our interpretation, he transmits this to us and motivates our actions in turn. Therefore, through its reception, art changes reality to the artist’s imagination. Magic.

Despite their respective differences, we believe all the images we feature share something in common. They bring our minds to rest and give us comfort through this. To achieve this, we search for those images to which we feel most familiar as, in one way or the other, an image is always a portrayal of its author’s psychology.

In essence, through the life it captures, a work of art is a work of beauty. And as beauty brings us in a state of comfort and happiness, Artelesia aims to be a medium to access these realities.
