Introducing MÍRAME: A New Online Art Gallery Elevating Costa Rican Artists

Belinda Seppings, with nearly six years of experience at London’s renowned White Cube art gallery in London spearheads the venture with her understanding of the art world and a passion for championing emerging talents. Jonathan Baldock, leveraging a decade of experience from LinkedIn and a background in information technology recruitment, adds a layer of technological sophistication to the platform, enhancing its reach and impact.

Costa Rican art goes far beyond the typical tropical offerings found in tourist towns. The country is home to a dynamic and buzzing art communities that are producing exceptional work. Despite this, the country’s art scene lacks the gallery infrastructure and support it deserves.

Most of the artists are based in San José with many buyers based on the Pacific Coast. Potential buyers therefore face logistical challenges navigating the landscape. Even if they can, or are prepared, to drive around the country, it's difficult to locate artists and contact them due to the lack of online presence and clear information. This has created a mystery surrounding Costa Rican artists. MÍRAME aims to change this narrative by providing a platform where art enthusiasts can easily discover, engage with, and support the best artists in Costa Rica.

As Costa Rica experiences a surge in visitors and new projects, there is an increased demand for local art. MÍRAME Fine Art's mission is to bridge the gap between the most talented local artists and art collectors both within Costa Rica and around the world. 

The platform utilises cutting-edge technology, such as augmented reality, to connect artists with a global audience, providing a space for them to showcase their work and gain recognition.
