BAZ-ART TRANSFORMS SPACES THROUGH COMMISSIONED URBAN ART.
The African continent is fast emerging as a major centre of contemporary art. Baz-Art was founded in November 2016 with the primary objectives of creating a platform for street artists to make a living from their art and regulating the industry. We aspired to become the most prominent street art platform in Africa by producing art in public spaces while meeting the marketing demands of our clients.
Every year we pride ourselves on new achievements in the local and international public art scenes. We have travelled across the continent from Johannesburg to Accra, bringing colour to public spaces, and have had the privilege of working with some of the world’s most renowned street artists and brands. In February 2017, we proudly hosted Africa’s first annual International Public Art Festival.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES PUBLIC ART FROM FINE ART IS THE UNIQUE ASSOCIATION OF HOW IT IS MADE, WHERE IT IS, AND WHAT MEANING IT CAN BRING.
Public art performs many functions: it can express community values, enhance environments, heighten awareness, or challenge our assumptions. Our art is accessible because it is positioned in public spaces. It is a form of collective community expression.
By providing a supportive platform for artists, Baz-Art builds a bridge between them and members of communities: neighbourhood groups, local businesses, educational institutions, public organisations and the like. Public art is a part of our shared history, our evolving culture and our collective memory. Through public art, Baz-Art aims to provide financial support to our partners and meaning to our cities.about BAZ-ART
