For over seven years David Bowie and Bowieart has supported over 2000 emerging artists at a crucial time in their careers through successfully pioneering and encouraging online viewing of art, thirteen exhibitions ranging from solo shows to large group exhibitions, and sponsorshipa
The online model introduced by Bowieart in 2000 was revolutionary; and whilst it is still unique as a sponsorship site, it is no longer exceptional. There are now a number of comparable sites dedicated to showcasing artists work, and individual web presence is very accessible. The web environment is different from the one in which Bowieart launched, things have moved on and it is time for Bowieart to do so. With this in mind we are closing the student and artists layers of the site and hope that you will find similar benefits from any of the other sites online that offer similar promotional models.
Bowieart succeeded in its aim to encourage viewing of art online and supporting young and emerging artists. We are very proud of our achievements and the fact that Bowieart introduced such a model to the artworld and beyond.
David Bowie and the Bowieart team wish all the artists who we have worked with all the best with their continuing careers.
