Co-founders Mae Petra-Wong and Ori Gersht created Marcel to solve the problems that they’d experienced first hand as a gallerist (Mae) and an artist (Ori): keeping track of artwork they cared about and easily sharing it on the fly. Who has time for admin work these days? Recognizing that time is of the essence, they strive daily to empower artists through intuitive, streamlined and accessible designs that unburden artists of their rote administrative tasks.

We give a darn.
At Marcel, our fourteen-person international team spans from Brazil all the way to the Czech Republic. We built and continue to grow the app based on feedback from real artist users - reflecting not only our original vision of making organization and sharing easier, but building a digital community based on the needs of real life people.
