Who we are
st-Art is a platform created by and for art-lovers. Here at st-Art we are committed to keeping the flame of the art world burning. Long gone are the days of bureaucratic art galleries and gatekeeping the art community. We fully believe in the concept of art for all and this starts by supporting up and coming artists.
What we offer
We are in the business of helping up and coming artists. Our career-building services include mentorship, workshops, and work experiences. In addition to this, every artist on our platform will have their work exhibited for free through our platforms and various international events. Our dedicated content team makes sure that each artist is properly publicised whether its through social media, press or interviews. We also rent or lease art to commercial spaces (offices, hotels, banks, etc.). Our pool of art curators is always on hand to offer you any support or advice that you need.
How it works
Whether you are an artist or a buyer, the first thing you need to do is register. Artists can then upload their artworks to our virtual gallery and buyers can browse and purchase quality art. Want to stay in the loop on all things art? The best way to stay updated is through our newsletter.
At st-Art we believe in the power of creative development. st-Art helps up and coming artists reach their potential in 3 steps:
- Step 1: Our team of curators will analyse and assess the artist’s work in-depth.
- Step 2: We will work with the artist to develop their skills through weekly workshops and/or through practical work experience.
- Step 3: st-Art will put our newly developed artist on display! Our artists are the foundation of everything we do, that’s why we believe in giving back by promoting their work across all of our platforms.
Break into the industry or perfect and refine your skills. That’s just the start of what our amazing mentors can help with.
Whether you are a beginner or a professional, it won’t cost you a penny. We get a kick out of helping aspiring artists.
