We are proud to announce that we recently partnered with “World Child Cancer: No child should suffer”, which is sponsored by Deutsche Bank (that is notably active in the Art World) to organise an exhibition on-line, where for the first time visitors will be able to buy original artworks directly from USEUM.

Few days ago, on the 6th of October 2015, we celebrated the opening of USEUM’s first ever exhibition in collaboration with Le Dame Art Gallery at Melia White House in London. The evening was a great success, full of art in the form of 23 beautiful paintings from 16 countries from 4 continents around the world. Music by professional pianist Fabio Tedde and award-winning wine by Domain Spiropoulos made the evening even more special.

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.

We are proud to announce our new partnership with Le Dame Art Gallery operating between London (UK) and Capri (Italy). To celebrate our partnership we are hosting USEUM's first ever gallery event!

You know what life in startups is like… “All work and no play”. Luckily in our case it’s “all art and no play”. But there are some times that we really need to just take a break and share what we do, how we do it and, most of all, why we do it. In an interview with The Times, our CEO and founder, Foteini Valeonti, talked about what it is we aspire to do here at USEUM: when we look for [films], we go to IMDB. When we look for video, we go to YouTube.
