TAGSMART is delighted to have entered into partnership
with The Cultivist, the world’s leading arts club offering collectors unique access to
museums, galleries and art fairs worldwide.
This collaboration launches with the tagging and certification of 300 limited edition prints
by renowned Latin American artist Gaston Ugalde (b. 1944). The work Red Orange
(2015) focuses on the development of the artist’s colour theories . Ugalde’s creative
process celebrates experimentation by mixing performance and installation. No digital
manipulation is used in the creation of this work.
Each print has been tagged using the Tagsmart’s synthetic DNA tagging system to
secure the authenticity and provenance of the work. The prints come with a certificate
of authenticity produced exclusively for members of The Cultivist as part of the Artist
Edition Series. The Series focuses on sharing the most exciting talents from emerging
markets in countries all over the world.
Georgie Borthwick, Director of Corporate Partnerships at Cultivist said: “As the global
arts club dedicated to making new connections across the art world, it is important to us
to promote new technologies that help our collaborating artists, galleries, and
institutions to continue their fantastic work.
It has been a pleasure to support Tagsmart as a new business that entered the market
with us, and our partnership has allowed us to elevate our Global Artist Edition series,
where we provide a platform for artists from young and emerging markets, into a
collectible and authenticated series”.
Tom Toumazis MBE, Executive Chairman of Tagsmart said: “We are delighted to be
able to announce this important partnership with The Cultivist. It is thrilling to
authenticate limited edition prints for their Global Artist Edition series”
