Wall Fiction mixes fine art consignment with second market unique finds to provide an online art experience for both new and seasoned collectors.
Wall Fiction is a second market separate from that of auction houses and specialized galleries. We look for fine art by reputable artists known for creating quality work. We resell original art from estates, owners wishing to downsize and collectors wanting a change.
For the new collector, we offer an unpretentious and affordable entrance into art collection. By learning and browsing curated art online without the pressure of feeling like you need to say the right things, you can start building a collection at your leisure. We’ve done the preliminary work for you.
For the seasoned collector, we provide an opportunity for both buying and selling. If after years of collecting and reshaping your preferences and tastes you find that you want a change, we can sell your work on consignment. Many galleries operating in both the primary and secondary markets and auction houses have narrowly defined criteria for the work they will offer for resale. We provide a unique solution, and together, we feature your artwork right away to find its new owner.
If you’ve acquired original art through an estate or need to downsize, we provide you with the avenue to generate some revenue but more importantly, find an owner who will love that artwork as much as the people who created it and first acquired it.
Every piece of art comes with a story. We make every attempt to investigate provenance – the history of ownership of the work – as well as the interesting stories they tell – be it a story about the artist, the subject matter or how Wall Fiction came to it.
The word fiction was created late in the 14th century as something invented and was derived from the Latin word fictiō – a fashioning – and the word fingere – something to form out of clay. To us, art is fiction – something created by an artist’s hand and imagination, and the lives of the people who acquired it, hence our name: Wall Fiction.
In addition to the stories associated with each piece, we also believe that original art sparks ideas and conversation with those who own and display it and therefore has the ability to create new stories.
So, whatever the story, truth be told, we take art seriously and the information we gather on each piece is as accurate as we can find. We are art professionals who bring you the experience and training expected in dealing with fine art. We feature work that we believe will not only maintain its appeal but also its value.
Great art collections are made of stories lived and shared.
