Paddle8 is the auction house for the 21st-century collector.
We give the global collecting community unprecedented access
to online auctions of high-caliber inventory.
We believe that collecting should be an exercise in passion, not patience. We’ve streamlined the buying and selling experience, combining the excitement and expertise of an auction house with intuitive technology of the 21st century. With Paddle8, you’re connected to the most covetable art and objects, sourced from a worldwide network and evaluated by connoisseurs, in an elegant format that’s as enticing as the works themselves.
Our commitment to philanthropy is core to our mission. Since our inception in 2011, Paddle8 has hosted more than 1,200 benefit auctions across the globe, raising more than $85 million for nonprofit organizations and progressive causes. By partnering with organizations ranging from renowned museums and artist residencies to national and global charities supporting environmental causes, health and humanitarian issues, and civil rights and social activism, we have perfected the art of fundraising.
In early 2018, Paddle8 and The Native SA, the Swiss listed and headquartered content marketing, technology and e-commerce services company, announced a strategic partnership aimed at bringing tech innovation in the arts and luxury space. Together they launched Paddle8 Lab an initiative commercializing some of the existing technologies owned by The Native’s Blockchain Lab and utilizing The Native’s e-commerce services and content marketing capabilities in expanding the business of Paddle8.
Our auctions showcase a dynamic range of collectible works — Post‐War and Contemporary Art, Prints and Multiples, Photographs, Street Art, Collectibles, and more curated by our expert specialists and offered in benefit, timed and buy‐now auction formats.
We invite individual collectors to consign their works to sell at auction or via private sales to our global network of more than 600,000 members. Because we value your comfort and discretion, we never disclose results or publish sales in price databases.
In addition, we partner with more than 350 celebrated cultural institutions and charities worldwide as well as international tastemakers on special auctions to help collectors access the extraordinary, discover new passions, and make a difference through philanthropy.
