Despite their undeniable talent and their unique sense of creativity, International artists (in majority from remote countries) have far less opportunities to show their work than artists in western countries or artists who respond to the commercial demand of the market. In response to this elitism, I have created THE smARTest PROJECT in 2015, a social art organisation that provides a new alternative for International artists. It brings more diversity and fairness into the art market by introducing original inner art and opening it up to talented international artists no matter their origin, renown, status, background or connection with the art world. Our mission is to create opportunities for these artists to exhibit and sell their works to a global audience, build their reputation and gain international recognition. Over the past 2 years, THE smARTest PROJECT has been pioneering the introduction of Haitian art in the London art scene and furthering the challenging vision of a fairer art world. We have represented artists in more than 15 exhibitions gaining significant recognition. We have revealed up-and-coming masters and highlighted the need and the demand for more Inspirational Art. But most importantly we have helped artists to sell their works, support their family and conduct art workshops for children. Our social goal that prioritizes inner creativity, fair trade and social change responds to a collective need and will change lives of thousands of people. We are aiming for a big change but stone after stone we have to build the right path.
In our mission to help Haitian artists live from their art, we have produced a fine art catalogue featuring 280 artworks available for sale. We aim to disseminate widely this catalogue online and onsite in the UK. However as a self-funded organisation we need additional sources of funding to thrive. We are looking for individuals and organisations to support our noble cause that empowers uncovered International artists. £2,000 covers the online marketing costs of the catalogue over a period of 6months and allows us to reach thousands of art enthusiasts and potential buyers for the artists. Thank you for your contribution for a fairer art world.
