As a leading art authentication service, Tagsmart combines physical DNA Tags, an online Provenance database and Certificates of Authenticity to identify and secure artworks. In just a few clicks, Own Art members can add value to their works by establishing a secure provenance chain and enable their collectors to buy with confidence.
Highlighted in the Deloitte Art and Finance Report 2017 as the only business offering these services, Tagsmart has continued to grow since its launch in 2016. Tagsmart currently has over 20,000 artworks recorded on the platform and has tagged or certificated over 8,000 works by hundreds of artists, from globally renowned names such as Gary Hume, Terry O'Neill and Idris Khan to new and emerging talent.
