About Artyii

Online Art Platform - Realizing The Potential Of Emerging Asian Artists

Artyii came about as a result of thousands of emerging artists across Asia not having the opportunity to showcase their brilliant work or have someone recognize their unique talent. In today's time and age, we feel that this should no longer be the case.

This free and open platform is therefore dedicated to emerging artists, and people who see potential in raw, contemporary Asian art and want to experience Asia's art and culture on a whole new level.

Artyii is incorporated in Singapore and supported by The Social Slingshot, National Research Foundation and Spring Singapore.
