About Us


Founded in 2004 by Russian entrepreneur Sergey Skaterschikov, Skate’s publishes data analysis, art market commentary and materials for continuing education and research.

In addition to owning the world’s only investable art index, Skate’s is also the founder of The International Art Industry Forum: a series of high level conferences bringing together a cross-section of industry practitioners, from gallerists and auctions house experts, to emerging leaders in e-commerce and insurance.

Heralded as “an essential resource for any art collector, art investor, or art marker professional,” the second edition of the Skate’s Art Investment Handbook was released in 2009.  Shortly thereafter, the agency was selected as the Art Consultant of the Year at the SPEAR’S Russian Wealth Management Awards.

In 2014 Skate’s became a subsidiary of ARTNEWS S.A., a global art media company dedicated to creating greater transparency of the market by empowering buyers and sellers with unbiased and fact-based information.
