A new, predominantly online artist incubator platform is capitalising on the art world's increasing move towards digital

Kovet.Art aims to uncover, represent and accelerate the careers of the world's best top-class art degree students, helping to develop their practice and profile. The platform's team – which includes CEO and founder Saras Rachupalli, who has managed private and museum exhibitions, publications and collections and advised institutions globally and is the granddaughter of notable Indian artist P.T. Reddy; Camilla Grimaldi, a gallerist (Brancolini Grimaldi, Albemarle Street), art advisor and advisory board member of Photo London; and Averil Curci, director of curation and artist liaison – will use their expertise to bolster artistic talents from across the world, sourced directly from leading art colleges through a stringent process of assessment, involving portfolio reviews, studio visits and interviews.

Four seasonal shows will be staged each year, aligned with current trends, to attract international collectors. A members club (KLUB) will offer talks, panel discussions and online exhibitions, while physical pop-up shows will also be hosted, initially in central London.

The first exhibition (online only) in Kovet.Art's schedule opened on June 3 2020, and featured work by eight emerging UK-based artists: Kristy M Chan; Tom Faber; Max Gimson; Candice Jewell; Christopher Pearson; Giovanna Petrocchi; Loreal Prystaj; and Janet Waring Rago.
