BE OPEN Art, an online art gallery set up by BE OPEN think tank, a humanitarian initiative
founded by international businessperson and philanthropist Elena Baturina, is running a new
competition for emerging artists, aimed to support those whose art best represents their
regional, cultural and ethnic identities – BE OPEN Regional Art.
Art has the power to move people and evoke emotions that words can never do justice to. Whether we are looking at a painting, admiring a sculpture, or listening to an opera, art makes us feel alive in ways we thought were unimaginable. But what is more astonishing is that art truly has the potential to shape our world — it can create social movements and make revolutionary changes in society.
Creating your own art studio is a great way to dedicate yourself to an artistic practice. In addition to providing time and mental availability, having a dedicated space helps significantly with artistic creation. A space just for you, in which it is possible to imagine, to invent, to create without limits or distractions!
BE OPEN Art is happy to announce February 2023 Artist of the Month. Aiming to provide emerging creatives around the globe with an opportunity to be seen by the art world community, every month we invite art enthusiasts to choose the best artist among those featured in our online gallery. This month, our congratulations go to Gohar Gnuni, artist, illustrator and graphic designer from Yerevan, Armenia, whose soul-stirring linotypes gained her a majority of votes from the visitors of our website. We also take the opportunity to applause all the featured artists and thank everyone who voted!
From twenty-somethings wanting to splurge on NFTs, to over-sixties spending seven figures at auction, 2022 was a busy year for art collectors both young and old. With the market now being frequented by such a diverse range of ages, how should galleries adapt to appeal to both new and established art collectors?
BE OPEN Art is happy to announce that Jovanna Theodosiou has been selected the Regional Artist of the month (February) by the highest number of votes of BE OPEN Art online gallery visitors. Jovanna studied Fine Art in Kingston University, UK, and currently lives and works in Nicosia, Cyprus.
