Elder Street art is a unique website, aimed at displaying a limitless range of art types on a global scale, via the world-wide-web. We realised that an increasing number of people are choosing to stay at home rather than visit the exhibitions, galleries and museums around them. Even the pubs are declining in popularity as people choose to consume cheaper alcohol under their own roofs. If we can publicise the talents of artists around the globe, we hope to be able to encourage people to become interested in art and explore the vast quantity of artistic exhibitions available.
Who are we?
We are a team of budding artists, who became frustrated with the challenges that promoting our art brought about. Rather than trying to battle for exhibitions, we realised that there is a fantastic promotional opportunity on the internet. This has encouraged us to be more creative and productive with the pieces that we work on; working to personal rather than exhibition deadlines. As we all have individual profiles set up through the website, we regularly compete against each other to display our work as soon as possible. This has created a dynamic, creative culture as we race to publicise our work before our colleagues.
What is our vision?
Our aim is, like many artists and business entrepreneurs, is to showcase our talents to as many people as possible. Our vision is to attract many new artists onto our website, each setting themselves up with individual profiles whereby they upload their work once completed. We would love to recruit as many artists as possible and hold regular exhibitions to show the general public what we can do. By making the website free of charge to members, we are showing that money does not motivate us; it is true art that inspires us and artistic talent that will continue to guide us.
What do we currently do?
In addition to our website, we also hold an annual exhibition which is free of charge to the public. Naturally, our artists still require money for the essentials of life, so there is a selection of art on sale during these exhibitions. We also have an auction, whereby visitors bid for some of the different works of art. This allows artists to gain an understanding of how much their talents are worth, and enables them to receive a fair price for their efforts. In addition to showcasing and selling our art, the annual exhibitions are also a fantastic opportunity for us to meet like-minded people and discuss improvements for Elder Street art.
Theme of the month
In order to get those creative juices flowing, our ‘theme of the month’ competition gives artists a title with which to base their art on. At the end of the month, our website owners select their best entry, and a small competition prize is awarded. The artist’s profile is then given a special ‘artist of the month’ title which allows all of our users to recognise their achievements and congratulate them.

Inspired (if that's the right word!) by celebrity culture, Amelie provides satiric representations of famous people, based on photographs she has found. Sometimes looking quite disturbing, Amelie's portraits provide an insight into how she perceives certain celebrities.
