Well before lockdown spurred the genesis of countless digital art initiatives, Milan’s Mon Share Art had pioneered a unique combination platform that leaned into online sales while maintaining a few characteristics of the traditional brick-and-mortar gallery.

Mon Share Art had no permanent physical space, but attended fairs, kept regular programming, and acted as a crossroads between a gallery and an art advisory. The platform even ventured into provocative initiatives like renting (rather than buying) art. 

Mon Share Art has kept its finger on the pulse of the future of the art world and what it will look like. With that in mind, we asked the gallery to name a few emerging artists that it thinks we should know.

Below, check out the artists they’re promoting, and look out for their work, which Mon Share Art will bring to Miami this December.
