Aqua Art Miami | Emerging Artists Materializing Their Dreams

Every year in December, Miami is the place to be when it comes to art, music and design. The city holds a fast-growing number of art fairs and artists, welcoming international and fresh art community. From emerging artists to fine art collectors, curators and art lovers from Europe, LATAM, Asia, Africa, and the U.S. who travel all the way to the heart of the art world known as Art Basel Miami.


As romantic as it may sound, to be an artist involves not only talent but determination and persistence. In order to build themselves a name in the competitive art scene, Galleries and artists are working together to reach the market’s expectations and needs. Online galleries are changing the game when it comes to adding new ways to approach art to a much wider audience, democratizing the art world and giving opportunities to the upcoming and emerging artists in a globalized and international market.

Even if the tendency to buy art online constantly grows, there is still room for the online galleries to do offline exhibitions, showcasing the work of their artists to new collectors in spaces related, or not, to art. Art fairs are for online and offline galleries the place where they not only increase their sales but gain more visibility.
