Project Art – The Social Arts Market winning artists for Artrooms 2018
Project Art, the new crowd-curated online arts market, ran an online competition giving artists the chance to exhibit at ARTROOMS 2018.
London, UK: Inspired by their partnership with ARTROOMS Project Art ran its online competition from 15th to 30th September. The prize for the four winning artists is an opportunity to exhibit and sell their artwork at Project Art’s exhibition space during ARTROOMS 2018. To enter the competition, artists simply had to upload up to three of their artworks to Project Art’s site projectart.com. The platform’s users and visitors were able to crowdsource the winning artworks by viewing, liking and sharing their favourite works of art on projecart.com. The artists behind the works which received the most user interactions were selected as competition winners.
The four winning artists are:
1. Irena Iris Willard
2. Armando Alemdar
3. Edwin Barrington Lue-Shing
4. Alizé Wilkinson
Project Art’s co-founder & CEO Johannes Fröhlich commented: ‘We are delighted to be running this competition to exhibit during ARTROOMS 2018. Our mission in creating Project Art was to break down the barriers that prevent many artists from entering the market, and to make emerging art available to a broader audience. This competition helps us do exactly that and provide four artists the chance to showcase their work on a global stage.’
