Blockchain technology enables you to make transfers simple and secure and to keep track of your artwork. Provenance, ownership and each transaction are registered on the blockchain. For each edition, we create a unique NFT (non-fungible token) which represents your certificate of authenticity. You can easily transfer your NFT in your wallet or offer it as a gift. Just ad the wallet adress, where you like to transfer the artwork.
There is no art without our artists. elementum is the preferred platform for digital artists because there is no easier way to bring artwork directly into living rooms, lobbies, and restaurants. .
The elementum family consists of artists worldwide who engage in digital art of all kinds. We currently work with 50 artists with unique artworks. We are happy to welcome new artists into our family. Send us a message at [email protected].

A collection has no value if you can't resell it. By withdrawing your token (NFT) into your private crypto wallet you can resell your artpiece on the secondary market (e.g. OpenSea).
elementum brings lobbies or hotel rooms to life with visionary digital art. Business owners can stream their art portfolios, as well as messages, to guests though our business signage solution.
We built the platform with blockchain technology to ensure a safe and decentralised marketplace for creators and lovers of art. It is built on three main pillars.
High resolution pieces of art are stored in a fast and secure cloud infrastructure ready anytime for you to browse, select and display your personal investment in art.
Artwork, edition and all your transactions are registered on the blockchain in Form of a NFT (Non-Fungible Token). This allows you to prove ownership and provenance of the digital artworks in your elementum collection.
With elementum we have built one of the most user-friendly platforms. Payment is possible both by credit card and cryptocurrency. Prices are quoted in US dollar and converted to the current value in ETH at the time of purchase. Upon payment, our smartcontract converts the cryptocurrency received directly back into a digital form of the U.S. dollar and automatically transfers the corresponding amount to the artists.
Our Curators make the difference. They make the elementum collection the outstanding assembly of artworks by proposing artists who are contributing to the platform. Together they make it a unique experience for artlovers and collectors. We are currently expanding our network and are looking forward to working with curators worldwide. Please feel free to contact us if you are a curator yourself.
