The online event is hosted by none other than Miguel Mayher founder of Over the last decade he has signed partnerships with national museums, run artist entrepreneurship workshops for The International Arts & Culture Group, and coordinated Tokyo 2020 Olympics art initiatives, developing a unique understanding of the challenge between being creative and getting things done. Other Speaker include The Other Art Fair’s founder Ryan Stanier, Heather Bandhari author of ART/WORK, Jason Horejs author of How to Sell Art, and world-class artists such as BP Portrait Prize winner Miriam Escofet or Colin Davidson of TIME Magazine cover fame, and many more.

The Fine Artist Summit organizer Miguel Mayher researched hundreds of business resources for artists and discovered that the majority of instruction is put forward by a single educator. He believes that no one expert has all the answers, and a variety of domain expertise creates effective benefits for learners. Mayher states, “When getting questions from artist friends I started to realize that not only did I not have all the answers – no one does. By bringing together dozens of successful artists and advisors, I started to see patterns emerge on what makes an artist journey thrive.” His mission, in tangent with The Fine Artist Summit and, is to bring artists the best advice on how to make their career successful on their own terms.
