About

DIFFЯNT is an art & design agency that connects art enthusiasts to visual artists. Our mission is to dismantle elitist stereotypes in the arts and champion artists from diverse backgrounds.

Originally an events platform we started our journey in October 2016 with our first event Rap Portraits, from there we realised the importance of having both physical and online spaces that showcase emerging and established visual artists. Our name comes from combining different but complimentary elements such as art and music to help the world recognise the importance of art and design.
