About is an e-commerce art platform that features a curated collection of artworks by both emerging and established artists from around the globe. The platform has been conceived to raise artists' profiles, and to facilitate sales regardless of geographical location. We aim to make buying art accessible, practical and fearless for the new collector, and to present the most exciting new artists to the established collector. 

Rooted in our distinguished and long-lasting connection to global emerging art, is the culmination of years of passion invested into contemporary art scenes around the world, and our continued determination to highlight, promote and collaborate with the most dynamic artistic practitioners of today.

The platform is the latest initiative conceived by David and Serenella Ciclitira, and joins a family of celebrated contemporary art projects including the Global Eye Programme and StART art fair.

Global Eye Programme

The Global Eye Programme is an initiative that nurtures artistic talent. The programme aims to develop arts infrastructure in territories where this is lacking, in order to provide artists with the platforms, support and recognition they need to develop their careers. It works to build networks and opportunities for artists and galleries through strategic partnerships and a variety of platforms. 

StART Art Fair 

Now in its 9th year, the StART art fair has firmly established itself as one of London’s leading contemporary art fairs. Held at the iconic Saatchi Gallery, thousands of visitors join us every year to explore our showcase of artists, galleries and curated projects from around the world, providing collectors and art enthusiasts with the opportunity to discover the most exciting works from both established and developing global markets. In September 2022, we will launch our first international fair in South Korea, StART Seoul. The first fair in the city dedicated to international emerging art, StART Seoul will be held from 1st – 6th September within Galleria Forêt, Seongdong-gu.

The platform marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the company; one that will not only further strengthen our ties to supporting the arts, but ignite a continued global expansion within our artistic programme.
