OUR HISTORY

 

The Espejo Organization for the Arts (EOarts) was founded in 2013 by the Spaniard visual artist and arts manager Kika Espejo. As an international creative, Kika found the great need for guidance that foreign artists had when it came to developing a creative career in the United States. After obtaining her O1 visa, Kika started teaching workshops and giving consultancies to fellow artists that wanted to make New York their new home under the dba CONTEMPORARY ART PRACTICE (CAP). After a year, the O1 workshops were followed by career development courses, mentoring programs and exhibitions, leading to the creation of an organization that will give support to international artists and creative professionals in developing strong and fulfilling careers the US. In January 2016, EOarts fully embraced its name and continued to develop programs to provide promotional and marketing strategies for artists. In its 8 years of activity, EOarts has helped more than 100 international creatives achieve their goals of living and working in the US. It represents the work of extraordinary talents from all around the world and is always working on improving and creating new tools for its clients.
