Samsung Art Master project was initiated by Samsung Electronics Poland in 2004. At the beginning, the event had been organized as a painting competition. With the development of Polish art market Samsung Art Master has grown and now covers various fields of visual arts, including those using new media.
The main objective of the project is to promote creative, innovative ideas and support young talented artists on the way to professional careers, enabling them to become a part of the art market.
In addition to the promotion of creative young artists, the Samsung Art Master competition has also supported charity activities over the past eight years. The popularity of the program shows how Polish locals welcome Samsung’s devotion to creativity. We’re already very excited for next year, to see what inspiration Samsung Art Master will bring in 2012.
