About us

We believe in
artists first.


Marcel’s cofounders come from the art world,
but we think that artists deserve all the power. The art world treats artists like they’re commodities, instead of the fuel, the essence, the foundation of the art community itself.

Mae Petra-Wong

Co-Founder & CEO

Mae is the former director of an NYC-based contemporary gallery and also worked in the start up space (ClassPass, LightWorks).

Ori Gersht


Ori is an artist with 30 years of professional art world experience, whose work is in institutional collections worldwide.

We believe

Artists deserve to get paid for what they make

We believe they should be fully empowered to manage their own practices, from the administrative work to their sales. We created Marcel to make that as lightweight and simple a process as possible. And we kept the product free to allow for artists at any stage of their careers to make it on their own terms.
