Who Are We?

At DesArts, we believe we can develop a simple and affordable full-service platform to connect artists and designers with their potential audiences, offering an easy to use opportunity to exhibit, promote and sell their work. Setting up a website, developing a "Name" on social media and selling online are complex, expensive and somewhat off putting. We recognise that you should be spending your time on your creative work, not figuring out why your website developer forgot to make your website mobile compatible or search engine friendly! Our philosophy, which we try to infuse into DesArts, is that the artists themselves are the life and spirit of the site and that adding a personal, human face to the creative endeavours we showcase will allow DesArts to grow and develop into a forum for learning, networking and building relationships, for both artists and art enthusiasts alike.

Julien Haye

DesArts is the culmination of my lifelong ambition to contribute to the creative field. I am truly passionate about art and design, have a love of documenting city life through my photography and also of seeking out those unique, one-of-a-kind pieces from local and unknown artists and undiscovered designers. I have a special interest in architecture and an eye for perspective and colour - all of which helps me to view this site from both the point of view of its creator, and as an artist myself. Having spent 16 years in Banking, I have learnt the importance of connecting people and of showing the human side of everything we do. DesArts was born from my desire to bring unique pieces of art and design to the World and to connect people.

Why Choose Us?

For any local, new or small-scale artist, reaching an audience that will appreciate and be touched by their work can be a challenge, even if their work is generally well received by those that do view it. Setting up a website, maintaining it and getting the best out of social media and other marketing opportunities can be both costly and complicated, and of course requires a reasonable amount of internet knowledge and time as well - time that many artists feel could be better spent tending to their creative endeavours! This is where DesArts comes in - providing a simple, quick and intuitive platform for artists, designers and other creative minds to share and showcase their work to those that might be interested in it, and make connections with like-minded artists and art enthusiasts.
