Aesthetica Artists' Directory

The Aesthetica Artists’ Directory is a global network of artists engaging with the professional art world. In print, on our website and in social media we have created a forum for discussion and interactivity where artists, galleries, collectors, critics, curators and enthusiasts can meet and discover art from around the world.

A moving, curated platform of those shaping the industry today, each Directory runs concurrently with our bi-monthly magazine, including print and combined digital profiles that offer a glimpse into boundary-pushing practices and innovative modes of thought. Below is a selection from the current issue.
