Abstract
WORLD ART REGISTRY® is a truly unique global centralized public Registry which enables securely store, document, administrate and search the standardized verified information about each single artwork ever created in the world.

Art market participants need easy, cost-effective ways to store, document, administrate, protect and transact their rights whether intellectual or other nature across borders in multiple countries.





Until now in the world there is no global international register of artworks, which would contain detailed information about the artworks, their authors, owners, as well as the history of transactions (as far as possible).

There is no information centre that contains all the information and documentation on the cross-border transfer of art objects. High price for such services in the classical market.


Making art more accessible to new audiences and securing greater engagement from a wider range of buyers will be a key challenge over the next five years in order to support a stable, balanced market in the future.
