Our network of more than 200 artists crosses the continent of Africa and the diaspora across the Caribbean, North and South America and Europe. Every piece you buy supports the artist’s practice. Our promise is that artists receive a fair payment with up to 70% of the profits going directly to them.

Meet our Founder

Frustrated by the fact that African and Caribbean artists were largely underrepresented in the art world, Swakara Atwell-Bennett launched the BetterShared platform to provide a space for emerging artists of the African diaspora.

She’s spent time getting to know the work of more than 200 talented artists, who form the BetterShared global artist network. Connecting this network to brands and buyers to create authentic campaigns, commissions and curated exhibitions.
