An advocate for artists since a young age, Marine Tanguy managed her first gallery at age 21, opened her first art gallery in Los Angeles at age 23 and finally created her current business in 2015, MTArt Agency, breaking from the gallery model to promote better the most inspiring visual artists across the globe. MTArt is the first talent agency promoting influential visual artists and specialising in talent management: building, growing and accelerating careers. On average, MTArt artists have seen their works grow 150% in value year-on-year while signed to the agency, while MTArt itself made a profit in 2018. MTArt artists give one piece of art to the agency’s private collection each year which is now valued at over £200k. Marine has plans for expansion in 2019, and wants MTArt Agency to eventually rival the major Hollywood talent agencies that look after actors and celebrities. She was recently awarded Forbes 2018 30 under 30 Europe: Art & Culture. She is a writer and frequent speaker on contemporary art. Her talks include two TEDx Talks on how to transform cities with art and how social media visuals affects our minds.
