While some artists are keeping a very traditional approach to art, others are taking risks into the unknown and there has always been a constant debate about “What Is Art” and what makes it valuable.
In contemporary world success can be seen in both approaches, great examples are Damien Hirst and David Hockney, two of the worlds most famous and richest artists and yet with such a different approach to contemporary art.
The purpose of this exhibition is to create a dialogue between different approaches to contemporary art and to demonstrate that either way can be successful.
There is no subject restrictions just a couple of guidelines.

If you are one of the accepted artist and you find it hard to ship your work to us, you can send us photos of your work and we can print and frame it for you.
We have 3 available sizes for the frame:
1. 32/32 cm
2. 30/40 cm
