What is Artistic
Artistic is an Organisation staffed by highly qualified volunteers who mentor and support exceedingly talented artists, who have challenges to overcome
There are 3 Founders in the Project, Colin Sugden, Richard Dolinski, and Chris Roberts. Colin and Richard are in their early 60’s and have both recently retired from teaching at Schools that work with challenged students. Colin is also a qualified Art Teacher and Artist in his own right, whilst Richard Dolinski is known in the art world as a renowned dealer having run his own Art Galleries. Chris Roberts has two Autistic Sons and also worked as a FIFA Players Agent for 5 years, so he understands the requirements and responsibilities of protecting the interests of young clients & building their careers.
Our Artistic Community
All of the facilities will be available on site within our Community to maximise the personal and social development of our artists, they can spend their free time alone or join in social evenings / weekend at the Focal House. Once the artists are established and their sale prices have reached a high enough level, then they can move to their own autonomous studio / living environment with their own support team, as achieved by many successful artists in the art world.
Artistic works out of an established permanent Studio and exhibits in various Gallery spaces whilst seeking a permanent Studio / Gallery space. However, it will always explore the possibilities of “Pop-up” shows that increase the reputation of Artistic.
