Art Spot is nomadic, animated and alternative.
It’s easier to define it by what it is not; that is, a classic, standardized art agency as we are used to seeing it, because Art Spot is the opposite of that.
“Creativity is contagious, pass it on” Albert Einstein.
These words illustrate what drives and directs my commitment and vision. Creativity must be expressed and circulated without borders, without nationality, without classifications, in all its forms: visual arts, music, fashion…. and bring a complementary dimension to today’s world.
Art has its place everywhere, in museums, galleries, the street, our homes, Art Spot wants to be flexible enough to fit into any space.
What interests me in artistic work is its intensity, its material, to find in it a committed interpretation of the elements, of nature, of life, of society, which is anchored and positioned in the present, beyond our own interpretation.
I do not want to dissociate the artist from his work because they are linked by the same light, the same colors. I prefer to know and be connected to artists as well as to their works in order to represent and support them with the same strength, the same commitment, the same integrity that they put into their works.
I focus on creativity inspired by the African continent because that’s where I get my energy from. On the other hand, I challenge you to guess the origin of an artist by seeing one of his works in Art Spot. These artists themselves do not define themselves by their origin, why would we? Why would you do it?
“An artist” is an artist and does not need any other qualifier. What matters is its multicultural influence. The creations – plastic, musical or textile – that attract me are often produced by multidisciplinary artists … openness calls for openness. Like Hang’Art, I believe in science, ecology, technology and progress. And I believe that nothing is possible without Art, because “Art is our only salvation”.
