WOW x WOW is a UK based, progressive online gallery and art resource specializing in exhibiting, promoting and celebrating the very best New Contemporary Art from around the world.
WOW x WOW was founded in the summer of 2014 by Scottish artist Tim Maclean, whose intention from the outset, has been to shine a light on artists
producing work that boldly blurs the boundaries between the disciplines of fine art, illustration, graphic design, street art, etc. As WOW x WOW's sole curator, Tim actively seeks to work with and promote those artists who place a strong emphasis on narrative, who invest time and effort into evolving a unique aesthetic, who strive to develop and incorporate an elevated level of technical skill and whose imagery often contains a distinctively surreal slant.
At the very heart of the WOW x WOW ethos are three core aims: to provide art lovers with a unique destination where they can discover emerging talent and learn more about established artists working within the New Contemporary scene; to foster new artistic talent and support established artists by offering the benefits that only an online gallery and art resource can provide; to continue building a 'go-to' location where art collectors of all levels can find new, exciting work to fall in love with and add to their collections.
Through original content, including artist interviews and guest blog posts, WOW x WOW prides itself on giving true insight into the talented minds and working lives of artists within the New Contemporary scene. WOW x WOW is committed to letting each artist’s voice be heard, not only through their art, but also through their words and ideas, in the hope of starting fresh and interesting new dialogues.
