Entrepreneurs With "NO EXPERIENCE" Attempt To Democratise The Art World | Dragons' Den

  • Published on Oct 7, 2019
  • Francesco, Lise, and Christian from 'Feral Horses' operate a platform for fractional ownership of artworks, enabling individuals to support their favorite artists for as little as a fiver. The three connected in 2014 at university and are looking for a £50,000 in return for 2% of their business. Breaking down the walls of a 'smoke & mirrors' industry may be applauded by Deborah but the big collectors will walk all over them...
    An international sensation, Dragon's Den features entrepreneurs pitching for investment in the Den from our Dragons, five venture capitalists willing to invest their own money in exchange for equity.

    Looking at their website, I actually like their model. I find the dragons were too critical. I'm not convinced it will make investors rich nor help them to possess am actual piece of art, but in general I think it's solid. It's not like they sell art from some unknown backyard artist. And seriously - what's an art expert? The market cannot be predicted at all, other than that the best of the best currently won't go to zero. So in principle, it's not necessary that the platform knows art. The people buying it need to know.

    I feel sorry for the investor who gave money on a piece of art, and it NEVER sells...lost money! Too me, it's a silly idea, a con game.

    as an artist myself i cannot fathomo why an artist would put artwork up for sale on such a platform when you can be printing and selling the same artwork somewhere else and make way more money.

    Also, they are aiming for high priced art to rent out but they are forgetting that expensive art pieces have mostly dead authors who could not possibly be painting from the grave.

    Why would you not just put that money into the stock market .... for less money and more chance to make money with less risk if you diversify and sit it out.

    For me, this idea is either ingenious or lunatic depending on the exact figures in how the market works. Most importantly, of all the artworks sold in a year, how is the total value spread across the market? If it’s a wide spread - a long tail market - I could see this being extremely successful. If the vast majority of the cash is made in the big auction houses, it would be very difficult for them to disrupt that.

    Wow. Those "dragons" are really crazy sometimes. The whole concept is actually pretty good but those reasons for tearing it apart are mad.
    Saying "you didn't put any of your own money into it" is a bad thing when they've not paid themselves any salary is pretty 'rich'. Just as the comment regarding their experience and that they're no 'art experts'.
    What the heck? Like those art experts that price forgeries at millions of pounds are a good thing? Ever heard of "outside expertise"?
    And sure, everyone would like to completely own an artwork for themselves.
    But thanks to boomers like them the younger generations (like millennials) mostly can't. They aren't getting paid enough and if they have a good idea they're laughed at because the rich boomers can't really relate any more....
    Also the idea of investing in art is a safe investment - what are they talking about? This is (as far as I can gather) about current artists and not those who are already well known and established. No Picasso, no Monet - so with art it's ALWAYS a gamble, even if the person selling them is a well known art dealer. A lot of artists have sold well in the past but aren't worth anything in todays market.

    Is this even legal? The ownership of mobile property, at least in Roman-Germanic systems, is consumated by the "traditio" (i.e. handing the good over). I've never heard of joint property of mobile goods.

    • Babatunde Onabajo

      You raise a good point. I myself was wondering about the legalities of this. Don't get me wrong - startups and small businesses should not overly concern themselves with legal technicalities. If they did, no business would get started. But a line has to be drawn between mere legal technicality and something that is a very severe breach that the authorities will not overlook when it comes to enforcing. What I was thinking was whether these people are regulated? If they are selling an investment, which is what this is, they would need clearance from the Financial Conduct Authority and they would have to follow the guidelines from said Authority (e.g. properly disclosing that the value of their investment can go up as well as down).
