Hugo Mulliez is the third-gen of one of France’s most successful family businesses, Auchan. He is now on a mission to democratise the elitist world of contemporary art with Artsper, a new online marketplace.

With Artsper we form partnerships with galleries across France and we are starting to develop into Europe. We ask them to get involved in Artsper [an online marketplace where galleries can display artworks for sale from their exhibitions], and after creating their account they can manage it by themselves. We do not have our own artists or artworks, so we don’t have any stock or delivery issues, we are just an intermediary between galleries, buyers and art amateurs.
