We are MARTA
We are building the Hub of Latin American Graphic Art.
Why do we do it?
Because we have the dream of seeing Latin American artistic talent become a worldwide reference.
Because we believe that art is a channel for the transformation of lives.
Because we know that together we can achieve better results, generating a sense of belonging, strengthening both individual and collective capabilities and enhancing the opportunities that are necessary for the development of graphic art in the region.
How will we achieve it?
By building a multi-actor ecosystem - among artists, museums, galleries, collectives, schools, media and other institutions - so that we all share knowledge, create relationships and generate alliances and opportunities.
Connecting regional talent in a large community of artists; organizing it by individual strengths to facilitate their search and helping the international diffusion and promotion of artists and their work.
What do we do "currently"?
We have the digital platform (www.wearemarta.com) where everything previously mentioned is unified.
In the platform you can find the galleries, useful resources and the directory of Latin American graphic talent (organized by category, art style, nationality, and gender).
Promotion of the artists and their works through the platform and social networks.
Marta Club; an exclusive dialogue space where artists and art institutions in the region interact.
We are a virtual space where Latin American graphic artists exhibit our creations, share experiences, strengthen our knowledge and promote art both individually and collectively. We seek to make our talent known internationally and in this way improve job and economic opportunities for our members.

¿Why are we called MARTA?:
The name M-art-A comes from a play on words that involves several factors related to the project.
Globally, it means ART from Mexico to Argentina, taking into account the most northern Latin American country and ending up in the most southern one. This means that it covers all the countries of Latin America.
When choosing the name, it was taken into account that it would be easy to pronounce and remember both for Spanish speakers (artists) and English speakers (market). The feminine name Marta exists in both English and Spanish.
