Artists Testimonials

[Support] was a very important thing for me because if you are thousands of kilometers away, it’s important that your questions are answered quickly and you always have the feeling of someone there to help you, and it was in every communication with the company. I felt safe in the contact with the staff.

Thomas Schlereth

Germany, 2023/2024 Selected Artist, Chelsea International Photography Competition

I’m really extremely happy and I already think that the gallery is very, very beautiful. But I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of the whole team. I find that moreover, there’s a real benevolence, a kindness in all the exchanges. It was really nice. I have nothing but positive things to say.

Mathilde Troussard

As an artist, I’ve been trying to find an avenue where I can expand my voice. Because art is not just creating works of art for sales, it’s to relay a message to the people. And I decided to [join] this platform as an avenue for me to send my message. And I’m very happy with Agora Gallery and the Chelsea International [Fine] Art Competition putting all this together for us artists.

I’ve been following the gallery since forever and honestly I’ve been trying to build up my nerve to apply for it. So this year, I was like “I’m gonna apply for that!” and we had some amazing judges so that was definitely another thing that was pushing me to apply.
