At Okk Arts we have one aim: we help visual artists to become sustainable by unleashing their true potential.
Whether you’re a budding artist or a seasoned creator, our Artist Development Programme can help you become sustainable with your art. We work with a variety of galleries who have told us exactly what they look for in artists, what their buyers want and most importantly, what sells. Every artist wants to sell their work and we will find suitable option for each artist. However, if your main aim is not to sell, but build your portfolio to be visible in front of various curators, then our the programme can help with that as well.
