We are absolutely delighted to announce that ARTIQ CEO & founder, Patrick McCrae has won the Creative Industries Entrepreneur of the Year Award at Natwest Great British Entrepreneur Awards!

Patrick beat off some tough competition with over 1000 businesses entering the awards nationally across the wide range of categories. Now in its fifth year, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards has celebrated some amazing entrepreneurs over the years, many of whom are now household names. Past winners include David Buttress of Just Eat, Julie Deane of The Cambridge Satchel Company, James Watt of BrewDog and Alexander Solomou of TheLADBible Group.

This award delightfully coincides with ARTIQ’s 8th birthday and is the perfect way to mark the start of our celebrations, showcasing the tremendous growth and achievement of ARTIQ over just eight short years, including nurturing the careers of hundreds of artists, the expert curation of thousands of pieces of art and the development of a 20-strong team of art experts.

Founded in 2009 with a vision to bring great art into great spaces and to make sure artists are fairly recompensed for their work, ARTIQ represent some of the most dynamic, exciting and relevant artists and global art collections in the world as well as supporting the next generation of artists through The Graduate Art Prize.

A massive congratulations to Patrick from all of the team, our clients and our artists. Truly well deserved!
