The ArtSurprise project is now entering a new phase. There are four new options for artists to participate. Below the various possibilities are explained in brief. For a printable leaflet please click here.

Participating artists will have the following benefits:
It is fun to create art for the project. Artists get to advertise their art across Europe for free. Artists join a network of already more than 200 participants. They will also receive a free mention on the artsurprise website with a back link to their own web page. Occasionally Juan will organize an exhibition for participating artists around the installation of a new vending machine.

Every one of the following four options are supported by helpers of the project including free copying, laminating of photos, printing of artist´s statements (inserts), packing into boxes, labelling, shipping, and feeding the machines). Each series contains 120 copies and is published under one particular art category.

Art categories are: painting, drawing, mixed media, prints, collage, objects (sculpture), literature, documentaries, photography, digital art.
