USEUM Exhibition

Le Dame Art Gallery and USEUM are delighted to announce that throughout October they will host the first exhibition witnessing the collaboration between the prestigious gallery and the rapidly growing online art platform. The aim of this synergy is to bring emerging talent in the areas of painting, drawing and illustration from the Internet to the heart of the art world in London.

Foteini Valeonti, coming from the Greek island of Samos, is the woman behind USEUM, the fast growing platform for art, that already exhibits 20,000 paintings by 2,300 artists coming from 100 countries around the world.

When we look for video, we go to YouTube.
