BE OPEN Art is happy to announce its 2021 Artist of the Year, selected by the biggest vote among the monthly ratings.
Our congratulations and the €500 prize go to Carlos Rodisnel Rodríguez, visual artist from Cuba.
To be featured in the gallery, BE OPEN Art selects artists at an early stage of their career who emphasize social consciousness, philosophical meaning and the aesthetical solutions for the wrongs of the contemporary world, such as inequality, lack of diversity, environmental issues, and consumerism. In a way, the project sees its mission in looking for the new influencers in the art scene, and invites everyone to contribute to this process.
BE OPEN Art is an online project by BE OPEN think tank, a humanitarian initiative founded by international entrepreneur and philanthropist Elena Baturina. It is an opportunity for the emerging artists around the globe to be seen, and a starting point for connections to be build between the new creators and collectors of today.
No secret that the art scene is changing greatly these days. There is a tremendous rise of new collectors – the millenials – who are no longer driven by materialism as the primary goal of their investments, but are interested in the social impact of the art they are buying.
To be featured on our pages we select artists who emphasize social consciousness, philosophical meaning and the aesthetical solutions for the wrongs of the contemporary world. In a way, we are looking for the new influencers in the art scene, and invite everyone who visits this page to contribute to this process.
