Project Description

GlobalGeniuses is a digital art platform that helps new and emerging artists who are struggling to gain exposure get the recognition and opportunities they deserve. To do this, we match artists with the right tools and collaborations while helping them gain exposure through our Live Virtual Exhibitions. And we also match art enthusiasts/collectors with artists they want to support and other art collectors for business. We are committed to prioritizing underrepresented artists including black, people of color, female and disabled artists.

GlobalGeniuses

The following are the most prevailing problems new and emerging artists experience.

1.) It is extremely challenging to get exposure as a new or emerging artist. This is a problem because in order to be successful you need to make sales and without exposure it's hard to make sales. 2.) Because emerging artists aren't making enough money, it makes paying for galleries and agents really challenging. 3.) Lastly, because most new and emerging artists do not have representation, they do not know the modern tools and technology to advance their careers. Each of these problems are connected and exaggerate the other two.

We solve these problems by: 1.) Designing and developing a Live Virtual Exhibition feature that helps artists gain global exposure. 2.) Implementing an affordable subscription plan that significantly reduces the use of expensive galleries and agents 3.) Giving emerging artists access to tools and technologies that will help them manage and market their career efficiently and effectively.

Live Virtual Exhibition

 

GlobalGeniuses is built specifically for new and emerging artists who are are struggling to manage their careers and gain the exposure they need to make a living. 

I am uniquely qualified to solve this problem because this is one that has impacted my life personally. I decided to take a traditional career path and become an engineer despite loving singing. I want others to do what I did differently and pick the arts as a career and not as a side hustle. In addition to my passion and experience, I have an extensive network of diverse artists who need what I'm building and an experienced team.

We are raising $41,462K  to fund the launch and modification of our Live Virtual Exhibition feature for our disabled artists, development of an NFT marketplace that will be incorporated on the platform where artists can sell their artworks, for marketing & operational costs.

Most of the paintings and portraits hanging on the walls of these institutions were created by white men and feature prominent white figures in American or European history. We would love to use this reward to promote our black artists and give them the exposure they deserve.
