Founded in 2015, MTArt Agency is an award-winning talent agency which represents the top visual artists. While the art world concentrates on selling art on walls for a few, the focus is on investing in the top artists who could inspire everyone. Every month, the agency reviews 200 portfolios of artists. Our selection committee select artists with innovative techniques, inspiring content and strong visions.
For the artists who sign with the agency, MTArt covers their studio costs, sells their works, implement cultural & commercial partnerships and offers press exposure. This is how they accelerate their artistic reputation, visibility and success.
On average, MTArt artists have seen their works grow 150% in value year-on-year while signed to the agency, gain credibility in the industry and increase their exposure by 370%. MTArt artists give one piece of art to the agency’s private collection each year which is now valued at over £320k.
They now have two offices – in London and Paris and want MTArt Agency to eventually rival the major Hollywood talent agencies.
