Tagsmart partners with Gary Hume and Jealous Gallery

Our mission is to create a new standard for authenticity and provenance to help artists secure their copyright and allow galleries to sell with complete confidence.

We’ve already teamed up with some of the world’s leading artists and galleries including Gary Hume and Jealous Gallery. Hume’s Study In Black was one of the first artworks in the world to be tagged with its own ‘genetic fingerprint’ sealing its authenticity and provenance.

Watch our CEO Lawrence and Jealous Gallery Founder Dario Illardi talk to Reuters about it here.

“To be able to authenticate my work using the latest technology as I sign it and enter its details into an online searchable database will make it so much easier for people to track the history of the work and its authenticity in years to come.”
– Gary Hume

Come see us at Art16 from this Thursday, May 19th!

OH LOOK.... Tagsmart Certify in the news!

Next week our platform will be live for artists, galleries, dealers and auction houses to guarantee the authenticity of their art through our revolutionary artwork Labels and Smart Certificates of Authenticity.

Making headlines in the media, Tagsmart Certify was extensively featured by The Sunday Times as a possible end for fake art. They reported that Tagsmart Certify “is a DNA-like technology for works of art to make passing off forgeries much harder.”

Tagsmart Certify comes from the art world and is for the art world. Our Founding Partners, including Marc Quinn, Gary Hume, Mat Collishaw, Idris Khan and Mat Chivers have been instrumental in the design of this platform.  


Smart Labels
• A micro-thin Smart Label designed for paper, 3 cms in diameter with DNA security that can be applied to your print or painting in seconds.
• All Smart Labels are supplied with simple applicators and your own personal stamp, which means each label is unique to you and your artwork including each individual print.

Smart Certificates
• A fully managed system to generate completely secure Certificates in paper and digital form that can be personalised.
• Each certificate is printed on 270gsm paper and embossed with a uniquely generated signature of the artist.

Tagsmart Certify offers a straightforward means of protecting my intellectual property; with the swift application of a label I can digitally certify my works and quickly disown forgeries whenever and moreover, wherever they appear. It will allow me to build stronger relationships with collectors, who now know that they can purchase my works with the absolute certainty that it has come directly from my studio.”
