Ryan Mayberry

Vice President Technology
Owner & Partner

Ryan Mayberry is a software engineer, the founder of Consignor.ca and ArtMoi, and also a partner at Mayberry Fine Art.

Ryan has been surrounded by both important historical and contemporary Canadian art since early childhood. His father, Bill Mayberry, has been a respected art dealer specializing in Canadian art since the early 1970s. Following the completion of his studies at the University of Manitoba in 1994, he started his own internet software firm servicing government, transportation, pharmaceutical, and retail markets. From 1995 onward he continued to build internet software and internal management systems for use in both commercial and public art institutions.

In 2011, Ryan developed and established Consignor.ca, an online art auction service that brings together art collectors and consignors in a transparent online marketplace. In June of 2013, Ryan formed a partnership with auction industry veterans Rob Cowley and Lydia Abbott in the formation of Consignor Canadian Fine Art which saw his online auction service move into a bricks and mortar operation.

Ryan now oversees innovation and technology for Cowley Abbott (formerly Consignor Canadian Fine Art) while also focusing on his latest business ArtMoi. ArtMoi is a creation registry platform which can track a work of art or any collectible object over its lifetime. The company’s goal is to become an ISBN-type system for visual arts and high valued collectibles in order to help simplify the documentation of art and provide technology to an industry that is lacking it. With this, Ryan and the company are working to create a new industry standard that is controlled by artists for the long term provenance tracking of art.

With extensive experience in developing internet solutions, as well as helping to grow the family business by building successful services and support businesses for the Canadian and international art markets, Ryan leads the vision and product development behind ArtMoi. Through Ryan’s two passions, art and technology, he and the company strive to fulfill ArtMoi’s mission: To empower artists and make art more accessible to everyone.
