Martin’s Atelier is a cultural and artistic initiative boosted by Iciar Ormaechea and Martin Versnel through a network of people sharing the same enthusiasm. This private initiative is without economic interest. The central driving force is a passion for connecting skills, bringing people together, creating opportunities, and organizing events. We link our network in culture and art with people who look to accelerate their cultural or artistic careers. What can we offer?
- A unique private space for art projects, cultural events, and lectures
- A broad international network
- Cooperation with various Foundations and Organisations.
- Guidance to develop cultural projects including connections within the cultural sector.
- Facilitation and guidance to artistic career development, advising artists on how to present themselves internationally by linking artists to experienced European art consultants.
We take your passion for art and culture one step further
Martin’s Atelier was originally created around a unique and signatory space in the heart of Ixelles (Brussels, Belgium), the former atelier of the well-known Brussels artist Paul Artôt. The original construction was built by Paul Hamesse, a famous architect in the art nouveau movement.
Since January 2018 Martin’s Atelier curated exhibitions and art projects featuring a selection of artists from very diverse artistic traditions. We pushed careers and created opportunities. As of 2019, we organize briefings and lectures on art and culture by recognized representatives from the art world.
