At Banditto Art, their mission is to discover and support excellence in art. They seek to explore all talent from across the globe, by artists of varying disciplines, perspectives, ages, and demographics, and engage with a broad range of artistic practices. The Banditto Residency Program is a celebration of excellence in art from across the globe.
Being an artist isn't easy. Emerging talents and creatives are tasked with interpreting the world, drawing on personal experiences with hopes of making a lasting public impression. Sometimes that requires a change of scenery, a different perspective, or a moment alone. To that end, and in their endeavor to expand horizons of art and emerging artists, the organisers developed this Residency Program. The program affords artists the opportunity to come and create work in a quaint private Galleria, situated in the heart of one of the most picturesque towns in Tuscany. Due to the fact that the Galleria has developed an exclusive relationship with several world renowned collectors, they are able to provide them with a first glance of the various unique pieces created by these artists during their stay. This further affords the artist an opportunity to sell their work after their residency.
