Gary Hume, Artist
“To be able to authenticate my work using the latest technology as I sign it and enter its details into an online searchable database makes it so much easier for people to track the history of the work and its authenticity in years to come. Simple and effective.”
Idris Khan, Artist
“So pleased to work with Tagsmart on the creation of the first version of their tagging system designed for bronze artworks. As always, it's a pleasure to work with the Tagsmart team."
Robin Morgan, CEO & Creative Director Iconic Images
“Tagsmart presents a sea of change in the industry, offering a robust and fail-safe mechanism to verify art and photography. It is great news for us, and great news for collectors.”
Professor Steve Macleod, Director Metro Imaging
“We at Metro Imaging believe that Tagsmart have come up with a system that should be adopted across the creative industries."
Denis O'Regan, Rock Star Photographer
“State of the art authentication and security are both critical to ‘ Ricochet : David Bowie 1983’. We’re the first David Bowie project to use the official David Bowie Estate Stamps, so it’s vital to protect it from counterfeiting. Collectors of limited edition fine art photographic prints also have a right to expect that their provenance will be properly protected. Tagsmart have risen admirably to both these challenges. We’re delighted to have them as our partner.”
Deborah Azzopardi, Pop Artist
"Having seen and experienced the Tagsmart solution, I believe it will become a fundamental rule of thumb in protecting and securing artworks worldwide. This DNA Tag will revolutionise the art market giving artists' the opportunity to safeguard their highest valued works."
Philip Mould OBE, Art Dealer and Presenter of BBC TV's Fake or Fortune
"There is now an increasing need to inject security and confidence into the art market. Issues of fakery and duplication will always exist, but Tagsmart has innovated a means of authentication and provenance recording which I am delighted to both utilise and strategically support."
