Established in 1995 as Artbuy.co.uk, based on 30 years of experience in Music and the Arts.

Artbust is an Artists' management, events, production and promotion organisation. We are a team of art enthusiasts, journalists, producers and artists and have the means to promote the art we believe in by establishing press and marketing strategies.

We want ART to HAPPEN, to be POPULAR and accessible for all. We also work to help people understand and generally appreciate art.

Artbust stands for Art in unique settings. We are always happy to take on a commission to devise an exhibition and either select the exhibitors or work on this with our stakeholders. We like to take upon the challenge of taking art to unconventional spaces, hoping for interaction between art and the urban environment. Whilst art needs to be promoted, with our past events, we came to realise that this kind of action provokes the interest of local residents and businesses, thus leaving a positive imprint on those communities.

We want to showcase art and make it accessible. On this site we will be promoting our events and showcasing artists' work, some of whom have already collaborated in our previous events. We are at the moment re-launching these galleries (ARTIST A-Z and New Faces).

ARTBUST started out as a hobby when back in 1996 friends asked for advise as a famous fountain in Berlin was badly maintained by the public authorities. We supported a team of local artists, who used to the tiles to produce great artwork. From the sales of this artwork the refurbishment of the fountain was funded. This give birth to the idea of having an on-line arts shop - Artbuy This event also marks the first Art vs. Politics event organised by the future Artbust.

Artbust also produced one of the first Internet auctions ever . This was raising funds for the the former East German disident painter Lusici. A series of events were organised to save him from eviction from his Charlottenburg mansion and art studio We had about 1000 bidders from around the world, while the auction had been integrated in an inhouse event. The show was stunning success.

As an example of recent events that we have organised please go to: "Notions of Drawing" which a great success, we are now working on how to turn this into an annual prize. As an example of us using a unique space, and working with the local community, please go to: RUTHLESS PECKHAM. As an example of us using Arts vs. Politics please go to The Peckham TFL Tram Depot Issue

In short Artbust is about making Art popularly and helping artists. To further our promotion of the art we are working on an ambitious long term project to create an art and music radio station- more information on this please go to popmundial.com. Social network projects make it possible to gather that much attention that in late 2009 finally first streaming test took place. Artbust/Popmundial now is run by London Inside Marketing Ltd.
