Okk Arts offers two programmes for artists: Artist Listing and Artist Development Programme.

Artist Listing

Okk Arts is first and foremost meant for artists, by helping them to become more sustainable in what they are doing. Our role is to help them become visible to buyers. We sit between a dealer and an agent, with our main job is to keep the artworks visible in front of the right target market. We work with a variety of interior designers by supplying them with artworks for specific projects but we also work on commission for sales and marketing fees.

How does it work?

Artist Listing is a basic listing opportunity on Okk Arts website with a 12 month agreement period. We will not take any physical artworks from the artist until the sale has been concluded. The agreement is for digital images only, which will showcase their portfolio to the prospects.

We agree with each artist the “artist price” and Okk Arts will put 40% of the artist price on top to achieve the selling price. For example, if the artist price is £1,000, the selling price is £1,400

The artist is charged a monthly marketing fee of £20 per month. This covers an individual page on the website, contract management, social media postings, featured artist sections and artist spotlight videos. The agreement with artists last 12 months at a time with 6 months break clause.

Artist Development Programme

Okk Arts is equally passionate about helping artists to fulfil their artistic ambitions and develop their body of work. It doesn’t matter what medium you use to create your art, we can help you to develop it.

We focus mainly on four aspects: Artist Brand Development, Development of Artworks, Building your CV and Visibility and Turning Your Art into a Business. However, it doesn’t have to be only those 4 options as this programme is always built around the artist and their current circumstances and experience.

How does it work?

We will arrange a discovery meeting or a phone call to establish individual requirements. Then we will send a proposal for a development plan.

Each programme lasts for 6 months at a time which will allow us to see the development and follow the progress of the artist. The cost for Artist Development Programme is £50 per hour, which can be physical meetings or regular Skype/phone calls or a combination of both.
