WELCOME TO ANCORA ART
At Ancora Art, we support talent that emerges anywhere within the artistic realm.
We support a range of artists, from budding students to disadvantaged or vulnerable individuals, through the provision of art resources and a platform to sell artwork.
“I love that in this lockdown period so much creativity and diversity has empowered and inspired so many of the younger generation, like Ancora, to pave the way to carry and support emerging artists to reach their full potential in these uncertain times - It’s so needed and so welcomed. An inspiring initiative.”
- Fru Tholstrup
A consummate mover and shaker at the forefront of the international contemporary art scene, known for her role launching Sotheby’s flagship London Art Gallery, S|2 in 2013, and guiding solo exhibitions by artists of international stature such as Joseph Beuys, Taner Ceylan and Banksy.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We recognise that the Art world isn't easy. In such a subjective, populated field, it remains very tricky for emerging artists to expose their work to an ever-bustling community of potential buyers.
Similarly, we appreciate that creative talent is sometimes curtailed by an individuals' circumstances, be it financial or anything else.
That's why at Ancora Art, we not only provide physical resources to those of our artists which need them, but we also provide a hassle-free platform to market and sell completed artwork.
The betterment of our community is at the centre of what we do, which is why we donate a portion of our profits to our sister organization, Street Talk - a mental health helpline.
