Véra Kempf, 32, is the co-founder of SINGULART. Growing up in a family of teachers, Véra aspired to a career in international relations and studied for a degree at the Institut d’études Politiques (known as Sciences Po) in Paris.
In 2017, Véra met Denis Fayolle, then Brice Lecompte, and the three of them founded SINGULART: an online contemporary art and design gallery that disrupts the codes of the traditional art market. Putting diversity, inclusion, and transparency at the heart of her business model, together with a sincere ambition to help contemporary artists and designers get their work out into the world, Véra has watched SINGULART rapidly make its mark internationally. Today, the scale-up connects more than 10,000 artists and designers from 150 countries to clients around the world, and Véra heads a team of 140 people split between Paris and Berlin.
