A Message from our Editor-in-Chief
In this special issue, we bring you inspiration from some of the best artists working today. We are presenting this selection of artists along with our ATIMI’s Collectors Choice Award to recognize their accomplishments and their commitment to their careers. Discover all of them inside!
Working on this issue was exciting! During the first two months, I traveled to Colombia, South America, my homeland, where we’re establishing a second branch of ArtTour International. I wor-ked with our new team on what was their first experience in helping us to create an issue of our magazine. Then we came back home and finished this issue in New York. What a great adventure!
As I write this letter, we’re only a few days away from our ATIM’s Collectors Choice Award Cere-mony, which we will host in the studios of the Manhattan Neighborhood Network in Manhattan on Thursday, July 22 at 2 pm. The ceremony will be broadcast live on twelve channels. Not ner-vous? Who are we kidding?
If you missed our presentation, you still have a chance to watch the ceremony. Stay tuned to the ArtTour International TV Show because we will air the edited show on August 15th so that everyone who missed it can watch it.
During the creative process for this publication, we worked hand in hand with over forty artists on the artworks, aesthetics, and ideas for their articles and pages. It was a fulfilling experience getting to know their hearts and dreams.
This is the third issue of the eleventh year of Ar-tTour International. Our award-winning publica-tion has reached over two million readers in more than 204 countries. This year, we are dedicating our summer issue to spreading peace awareness, hoping that our broad exposure will promote arts and culture and spread the message of these ar-tists to raise peace awareness worldwide.
Don’t miss our digital issue, available on iTunes, Kindle, and Magzter, and now on PressReader. Click on the QR codes and enjoy our audio and video productions.
We go beyond the artworks and share with you where the inspiration was born. Join us as we take you on a voyage through the beautiful world of art.
