Studio Who? Studio YU.

StudioYU's mission is to bridge cultures through art. We not only showcase international artists, we also share news and resources to support contemporary art enthusiasts. Through our events, we connect people who want art directly with the ones who create art. StudioYU is also host of the People's Choice Award for artworks on exhibition, so that all voices are heard, making us the public's platform for the visual arts.

Our artists encompass both technical mastery and visionary spirit. They paint images that speak to our social, cultural, and global environment. They are original, noteworthy, underrepresented, living artists from around the world.

Our news and resources encourage the exchange of information and experiences among artists and art lovers. It is through this mutual, diverse, collaboration that the importance and value of art can be strengthened. We share practical, strategic, tips to navigating the arts market, building a business or brand in the arts, to help artists expand their reach through the support of our community. 

Our events introduce world art to the local public and provide underrepresented artists with the opportunity to showcase and for interested buyers to meet/purchase art directly from the artist. Attendees vote for their favorites here, so that the People's Choice is acknowledged and recognized.

This platform is FREE and open to artists and the general public, but we rely on your contribution to grow.

We believe in the power of community. We believe in supporting the arts. We serve to connect artists from around the world to all who collect art and appreciate a hand-written message. We do not engage in the sale of original artwork and encourage all to connect with our artists directly.  

StudioYU, founded in Princeton, New Jersey, in early 2015, is an exempt organization under the State of New Jersey under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
