Occhi Arts  & Entertainment has established itself as a platform that successfully promotes the arts and creatives, from emergent artists to award-winning practitioners in the visual arts, film, music, dance, and literature. We are keen to showcase the importance and benefit of the arts on society, particularly in light of the impact of the COVID pandemic. Alongside producing successful exhibition collaborations and publications with identified partners, we help artists with strategic support and exhibition opportunities. We are particularly interested in working with open-minded, early, and mid-career visual artists wishing to explore and collaborate on public-facing projects and community-related initiatives.  If you’d like to be considered for representation or would like to collaborate please contact us.

We are keen to work with artists who are creative and entrepreneurial in developing their practice, and open to potential collaborations with artists across the art disciplines; we work with musicians, authors, and filmmakers and, where possible encourage dialogue across our small community.  Selected artists will be represented by Occhi Contemporary Arts and feature across all of Occhi Arts & Entertainment's media platforms. This includes our popular arts magazine, online gallery, YouTube, and social media links. We are now working in partnership with selected venues so the artists' work may be showcased in London, New York, and appropriate locations. As artists and freelancers, we appreciate the need to be frugal with resources and know the time and costs associated with developing an art practice.  Equally, respectful of the administrative tasks associated with marketing chosen artists and facilitating exhibitions, we do charge a small but necessary annual fee that can be paid in installments.  This is based on our art sales/commission options.
