The Fearless Artist empowers mission-driven artists by providing them access to coaching, to a community, and to art buyers who care about social change.
A lawyer and event producer by training, TFA Founder and CEO Kiki Somerville always had a passion for supporting artists. In observing galleries and art events across the U.S. and the world, Kiki quickly discovered that today’s artists lacked the business knowledge to get their work seen, shared, and sold, and that she could push back against art world gatekeepers by teaching artists how to connect and tell their stories.
With this renewed purpose, The Fearless Artist was born as a community for knowledge and skill-building, making connections, and opportunities for diverse, mission-driven artists.
Since then, TFA has expanded to produce widely acclaimed popup galleries (TFAPOPUP) during Art Basel Miami (with over 12,000 visitors in 2019), as well as educational programs for young artists, and private coaching on the art business with clients.
