Not Real Art serves as a platform to celebrate and empower contemporary artists
The new website supports the arts community through grants, podcasts, exhibitions, and more.
Scott Power, co-founder of Crewest Studio in Los Angeles, a mission-driven content company dedicated to the creative and performing arts, knows the challenge of achieving a sustainable livelihood as an artist. Over the years, he and his company have worked with a myriad of different artists, listening to their stories and admiring their work. He knew it was time to make a difference and help this community rise up and show their talents to the world. So they launched a website to do just that called Not Real Art.
Not Real Art presents a platform where contemporary independent artists are celebrated and empowered. Not Real Art is a place where artists’ stories are amplified and their talents recognized.
In pursuit of this goal, the website provides a variety of content, resources and campaigns to its visitors and members. These include podcasts, blogs, artist profiles, virtual galleries and an online store featuring the works of its members.
Among his biggest projects is the Not Real Art Creators Conference. The event, organized and presented by the Not Real Art team, provided educational and professional information from leading figures in the art community. It was held in Los Angeles, California, in March 2019 and returns to Los Angeles in 2022.
Another notable feature of the Not Real Art website is its educational platform, the Not Real Art School. Here, the site offers online videos to teach other artists some of the most essential business skills every professional artist needs to market their work.
Each course features renowned industry experts and is freely accessible for the benefit of all. The online school covers many topics including copyright, marketing, sales, branding, licensing, pitch, and storytelling. Expert instructors include Netflix host Jorge Guiterrez, intellectual property attorneys Ilya Kushnirsky, and Joshua Wattles, president of Warner Bros., among others. Television Channing Dungey and renowned contemporary artists Logan Hicks and Hueman.
Not Real Art also provides financial support to artists through its Not Real Art Grant for Artists. This annual grant in the amount of USD 12,000 is awarded to six selected participants who demonstrate exceptional talent and passion as emerging contemporary artists. The artist grant is free of charge without obligation.
To participate in the prize, artists can send their written applications with their examples of works. A jury made up of some of the most respected names in the contemporary art scene then reviews and evaluates all entries to determine the winners.
The grants program started in 2019 and has since helped twenty-four independent artists fund their works. According to one of the previous recipients, “I really enjoyed the application process for this grant. Unlike other scholarships, I felt understood as an artist. I also really appreciate the frequent emails (updates) keeping us up to date. I really feel part of this process, whatever the outcome. It really makes me want to be part of this community.
The submission of applications for the year 2022 will soon be opened in January.
Not Real Art has a popular weekly podcast that aims to celebrate “creative culture and the artists who make it”. With nearly 150 episodes, the interview-based talk show features top creative professionals from various fields such as former ArtNews magazine editor Milton Esterow, former Starbucks Marketing Director Scott Bedbury, director Jeff Tremaine, actor Eric Winter and Steinway artist Ric’ky Pageot, among others. .
Not Real Art offers exclusive benefits to paid members, such as promotional support, access to resources, discounts on upcoming events and products, and featured on its blog. Three different membership packages are currently available: The Artist, The Art Lover, and The Art Patron.
