“We don’t invest in art, we invest in artists”.
This is the motto of MTArt Agency, an agency founded in 2015 by the brilliant mind of Marine Tanguy, who despite being very young has a background of experience in the art sector.
It is precisely when she finds himself managing her first gallery, in her early twenties, that she comes to understand that the value of the world of art must be placed in artists and in particular with younger ones.
According to Marine’s thought: “Artists enhance homes, cities, screens and advertising spaces with their art, transmitting their stimulating messages and images for a visually more stimulating life”.
In this interview, Marine, as Photography Juror for the Art Rights Prize reveals what strikes her when she finds herself evaluating artists’ statements and portfolios, because she would like to recognize in the works the artistic vision that inspired them and much more…
An advocate for artists since a young age, Marine Tanguy managed her first gallery at age 21 and opened her first art gallery in Los Angeles at age 23.
After seeing the restrictiveness of the traditional gallery model, Marine launched MTArt Agency in 2015. MTArt is the first talent agency for visual artists worldwide.
Clients love to work with the agency to identify the next rising star in the art world. They trust its rigorous selection and the expertise of the team to integrate their art in the most extraordinary contexts.
MTArt Agency was behind the largest public art painting in the world: the project of Saype in Paris supported by 30 companies including the Eiffel Tower and the Guardian Media Group.
Its artists enhance your homes, cities, screens, and advertising spaces with their art.
They broadcast their inspiring messages and visuals for you to lead a more visually inspiring life. Marine was awarded Forbes 2018 30 under 30 Europe: Art & Culture and UK entrepreneur of the year for the 2019 NatWest Everywoman Awards. She is a writer and keynote speaker on contemporary art and art investment.
1.For you, what importance does an Art Prize have in an artist’s career?
I feel that all things that come to validate the credibility of an artist are key. The very fact that the judges here are external is very positive if it comes to approving the art of the artists as this means that there are less biased.
2.What would you recommend to an artist who wants to participate in an Art Prize?
Do send an artistic statement that would speak truly about why it’s important for you to have people see and be inspired by your art.
3.What factors do you take into consideration when judging a nomination for an Art Award?
I want to see an artist whose vision is his/her. A truly innovative and captivating vision.
If you are an artist, what are you waiting for?
