'Catawiki reaches exactly the right target audience I'm looking for. This is extremely beneficial for me. I started out small, but now I can live from the sales I make on Catawiki.'

'Spanish art is appreciated much more than we thought it would be abroad. We really had no idea about the international market until we joined Catawiki.'

The global stage that Catawiki provides is extremely attractive as it cuts out the astronomical costs associated with traditional auction houses and art galleries and helps me promote and sell my work on a large scale.'
