A new digital art business, bridging the worlds of art, philanthropy, and social impact.

Running from: Wed 8 - Sun 12 Nov.

Art of Kindness is a new marketplace that utilizes the value of art to impact the lives of millions of people in need as well as benefiting artists and collectors across the globe. A portion of the sales proceeds from every artwork, which would traditionally be transaction fees in the art market, are directed to a social project from a range of non-profit, social impact partners. Beautifully curated stories of community building or social development programs are then attached to the artwork, transforming the art ownership experience. So, the more you participate the greater your kindness story.

Many of the artists originally come from developing countries, and the element of dialogue and the role of their environment is prevalent in their work. The chosen artists are an eclectic group, using a variety of different mediums and techniques: photography, mixed media, pigment on canvas, digital print, pastel. The featured artists include: Dawn Csutoros (Australia), Rita GT / E-Studio Luanda (Angola/Portugal), Revati Sharma Singh (India/UK), Natvar Bhavsar (India/USA), Ronald Patrick, Petroc Sesti (UK), Doug Patterson (UK), Seema Kohli (India), Brinda Miller (India) and Klaus Thymann (Denmark/UK).

Art of Kindness is working with five official non-profit partners that work across a range of sectors, including Elephant Family, Charity: Water, Micrograam, Project Pressure and Acumen. Further partners will be sought as the platform grows.
