ARTTA is a fun, curated experience for any art enthusiast, collector, or anyone interested in African culture and art. Our aims to present established and emerging artists to new audiences within the global art market. We are an online social community for artists and art enthusiasts, allowing people to connect through the creation and sharing of art.
WHAT DO WE STAND FOR?
Our program highlights the African artistic dialogue, transcending generational movements, artistic expressions and geographical borders. By exhibiting artworks that carry a universal message through their unique visual forms, we aim to bring collectors closer to artists by sourcing a curated selection of artworks for you. Our objective is to create an interactive and sustainable African artistic community.
WHAT IS OUR MISSION?
There is a close link between African history, culture and tradition. These aspects are a core element to African art and contributes a lot to the relevance of the art piece.
WHERE ARE WE HEADING?
In time, ARRTA will participate in international art fairs by presenting packages to interested audience giving them a one of a kind art fair experience. But it will first expand its digital network of art with a special focus on engaging the artist-collector relationship through an African art tour, studio visits, regular news flow and curated digital publications about various exhibitions and the work of the artists it represents.
