The platform

ecosystem for

the art world

Secure your artwork’s provenance and simplify your daily tasks in the art business.

Be part of the platform where resources, services and knowledge about art unite professionals and collectors.

Fernis adds the final layer to the art world.

For the Art World

Fernis is for all stakeholders in the art world

Fernis facilitates the daily business for all actors in the art world, starting with Gallerist Users.

The ledger keeps artwork provenance and data safe, for now and for the future.

The social platform supports users' relations by gathering all actors in a network evolved around art.

Galleries

Tired of switching between handheld notes and several digital non-syncing systems? Fed up with multiple tools to keep track of client relations, artwork registrations, exhibition preparations and sales status? Wants more time to clients, artists and artworks?

Register all your artworks in one place. Gather all data and documents here – and transfer to the buyer as a helpful service. Stay up to date with artists’ CVs and provide your customer base with news.

Artists

Register the artwork before its journey starts to attest its authenticity. Share and handover to galleries or collectors. Store data on shows and other relevant information to build value.

Collectors

Get artworks and their data transferred to you when purchasing. Get professionals to validate your artwork. Secure provenance, authenticity statements and value. Yet stay anonymous.

You

Fernis is a platform for all parts of the industry, and eventually, all sectors and services will be represented. We want entrepreneurs and visionaries to take part in the development and evolution of Fernis. We welcome innovation.

The System

A system to create accessible, trustworthy data

Gallery Inventory, client management, secured provenance and a social platform in one system.
No more lost folders, missing information and unnecessary double-registrations in different systems.
More time to focus on the most important things: art and clients.

Management

Inventory, Exhibition planning, CRM and sales tools. Automated syncing when master data is updated by a trusted entity.

Artwork

Authenticity

Get professionals to validate the authenticity of your artwork. An equivalent to the vulnerable physical art certificate of today.

Security

All data is securely stored in order to save artwork provenance and cultural heritage. Supports compliance with regulatory directives.

Relations

Establish and maintain relations with professionals and clients on the social platform. Share artwork information with your network.

Documents

Link documents to the artwork – maintenance information, condition reports, personal artistic dedications, photos of the artwork in different locations etc.

Provenance

The artwork’s ownership history is discretely attached to the artwork’s digital ID – it follows along when it switches hands.
