Enriching the World through Art

US Artbank International (USABI) is an investment holding company that endeavours to bring the best in fine art to the world and provide art investment opportunities to both new and long-time collectors. Established in 2020, the firm was established to revolutionise the art market by offering an approach to art collecting and investment that is transparent, secure and inexpensive. Our team is composed of art advisory and investment professionals who are ready to help you navigate the art market or nurture your artistic taste and knowledge.

We aspire to be the leading authority on art and investment in Asia.

Our mission is to be a catalyst in a vibrant art industry by supporting the creations of emerging and established artists and increasing the accessibility, liquidity, and efficiency of the art market. We enable the discovery of new and emerging artists and support for established names, and at the same time, offer practical guidance to collectors through a sometimes-opaque art market. We want the world’s best art talents to have better access to their market and potential buyers.

Driven by the principle of sharing uniquely innovative art that inspires and evokes the imagination of our human souls, USABI invests its own financial capital behind the artists it believes in. We are the exclusive owner of the renowned gold art of South Korean artist Kim Il Tae, in addition to a rich investment portfolio of contemporary, emerging artists as well as antiques. Some of these masterpieces are on show at our signature galleries – Aureo Gallery – in Kuala Lumpur and Beijing.

Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, our global network extends across Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, China, the Middle East and Russia. The next phase will see us expand our distribution channels to include partner galleries, world-class art institutions and museums and country representatives.

How art is traded, consumed and evaluated is evolving quickly. In keeping pace with the rapid digitisation of the art world, we aim to leverage the best of cutting-edge technology and innovation to connect the global audience with the world’s most unique and exceptional art for passion and profit.

The new breed of art collectors is driven by both passion and profit. They desire the art to be meaningful to them, to be visually pleasing, have cultural significance and at the same time be financially sustainable. This is what drives us at US Artbank International. There is a newfound appreciation for how valuable proper advice is in this area, and we aim to exceed client expectations every time.
