…and that’s a wrap for 2023!


This time last year, HUG featured just over 300 artists.


Today…

Together, we’re committed to increasing diversity, inclusion, and accessibility in the arts. - Reviews are one of our earliest and most popular features on HUG. We had 1,671 art lovers write 16,499 individual reviews for 3,690 different artists!- We launched Creator Royalties, a weekly newsletter dedicated to little histories, mini-masterclasses, and opportunities in arts and tech. In that time, Creator Royalties has published 45 articles for 10,399 subscribers and counting. - Since our first Open Call last April, we have hosted 68 Open Calls and received 15,935 submissions from 3,926 artists. - From those, we’ve curated over 700 artists in 20 cities worldwide for exhibitions, grants, and job opportunities. - With thanks to our friends and partners, we’ve awarded over $50,000 in funding directly to artists, including 12 artists who received our in-house Visionary Grant.
    Everything we’ve done at HUG, we do for artists and art lovers like you, because we couldn’t do any of this without you. If you’re here for the art, HUG is here for you.

@everyone It's almost 2024, that means it's time to start anew!


2024 HUG Visionary Changes and Updates


Every 2 weeks, HUG elects an emerging artist to award a $500 USD grant and promotes them on HUG’s website and across our audience of 2M+. In exchange for the grant, HUG commissions artists for a limited edition release of artwork to be shared with our community via HUG Point Raffles.


The HUG Visionary Grant was introduced in June 2023, as a way for us to champion emerging artists through financial and marketing support. Since then, we have awarded grants to 12 Visionaries, spotlighted them to our global audience of 2M+, all while making their art accessible to new collectors.


With the new year just around the corner, we’ve decided to revisit how we distribute this grant. We are still distributing $12,000 directly to artists each year, but will move from reviewing rolling submissions on an annual basis to a quarterly basis instead. We hope this will give all artists the opportunity to submit newer work for consideration, while also providing artists with an answer to their application sooner.


What does this change mean for your past submission?
Prior submissions will not be considered for future awards. While you are welcome to resubmit the same artwork for consideration, you must provide a new entry each quarter in order to be considered.
What does this mean for your selection eligibility?
Any artist who submits to our quarterly Open Call and has not been previously selected for the HUG Visionary Artist Grant will be eligible for future awards.
How many times can I apply to the HUG Visionary Grant?
Each artist is welcome to submit up to 3 artworks for consideration every quarter.
Want to apply for the HUG Visionary Artist grant?


Submit artwork to be considered for Q1 of 2024


We look forward to your 2024 Q1 HUG Visionary submissions! Best of luck, and rooting for you always!

Each artwork is conceived as a visual puzzle and ironically presented as if it was a kind of board game that deals with the depths of the human experience."

Visionary Announcement: Oyi Sands


Join us in welcoming Oyi Sands as our second HUG Visionary in November!
Art has always been an integral part of my life, either through dance, theatre art performances or music, but my journey into my current monochromatic abstract-surreal art style began a little over 6 years ago when I started drawing patterns as a way to cope with anxiety and depression.As I continued to create art, I discovered a profound affinity for drawing lines in unique and diverse ways, finding solace in their creation. Over time, this passion evolved, allowing me to construct dynamic environments that represent realms I yearn to exist in and with practice and dedication, my skills improved. I often describe my art as inspired by escapism, and perhaps there is a considerable truth to that. Through my creations, I aim to transport viewers to alternate realities, offering them an opportunity to momentarily transcend the confines of everyday life. It is within these abstract realms that I find solace, and I hope to evoke a similar sense of wonder and liberation in those who engage with my work.


Benevolence of Capitalism by Oyi Sands
"Benevolence of Capitalism” is an artwork that serves as a commentary on capitalism and the relentless pursuit of success. As creatives, we often find ourselves caught up in the demands of capitalism, where the pressure to market our work, network, and compete with other artists can be overwhelming. 'Benevolence of Capitalism' seeks to illuminate this experience from my perspective—the journey of a creative, striving and dedicating immense effort, hoping that one day capitalism will bestow its blessings upon me. It explores the complex relationship between creativity and the capitalist system, raising questions about its impact on artists and the pursuit of artistic fulfillment.

Visionary Announcement: 64Rising


Join us in welcoming 64Rising as our newest HUG Visionary this November!
After a thrilling family holiday to Walt Disney World, I returned home filled to the brim with inspiration and a dream in my heart. I couldn't contain my excitement as I boldly announced to my loved ones, "I want to work for the magical kingdom and spend my days drawing Mickey and Minnie Mouse!" To make my dream known, I even posted my hand-drawn pictures all the way from the Highlands of Scotland to the magical kingdom of Florida. That memory still brings a smile to my face. And guess what? I still have Mickey and Minnie Mouse's signatures tucked away in my autograph book.That version of me was a courageous little girl with wild hair, fueled by an unwavering belief that anything is possible. I embraced an attitude of "Why not?" and fearlessly threw caution to the wind. Who says dreams can't come true, after all? I was determined to chase my passion with the same joy and playfulness that Disney instilled in my heart.But amidst my quest to join the ranks of Disney's magic-makers, I discovered something even more profound. I rediscovered the essence of limitless possibility. It wasn't just about Mickey and Minnie—it was about embracing a childlike wonder where dreams knew no boundaries. I realized that in this world, anything could happen if you believed in the power of imagination.From my work as a community support worker to my love for adventure in nature, my attitude has always remained "Why not?" And now, more than ever, I want to bring this spirit to the Web 3 space. I want to inspire others with my mindset and together, let's play, collaborate, and create. Let's make impactful changes in the world.
Heartfelt Vision by 64Rising
“Heartfelt Vision" is an exploration of the profound power of love and compassion, serving as a visual reminder that even in the most unexpected places, we can uncover moments of heartfelt beauty. Buzzy Bee serves as the wide-eyed lens, offering a unique, balanced perspective and celebrating our ability to view the world through the lenses of love, empathy, and compassion.

Visionary Announcement: treeskulltown


Join us in welcoming treeskulltown as our second HUG Visionary in October!
Treeskulltown has developed an art movement known as Subrealism. This movement is inherently subtractive in nature, as it conceals the identity of a portrait through a subversive child's gaze—an eye and a mouth shape that reduce the representation to its primitive emotions from childhood: joy, fear, and anger. Subrealism also serves as a mark of our creative subconscious. Consequently, it involves the removal of realism from a work, especially in the context of a face. Moreover, it intentionally eliminates complex techniques in favor of the simplicity found in the fluidity of line work, pushing the boundaries of raw art and traditional animation. This relevance, stemming from a subculture, imparts a straightforward and effective creative pleasure, amplified by vibrant colors, while stimulating reflection upon a second reading of the artwork.Subrealism offers a contemporary representation of the concerns of digital artists, infused with a touch of heightened humor, much to the delight of both the artist and discerning collectors. Treeskulltown is a member of the ArtCrush gallery and NFTfactory communities, actively engaged in work on the Tezos blockchain alongside 800 collectors. Collaborations with @VonDoyl and @DehiscenceArt have been a notable part of this journey, including participation in the X-hack event at NFTFactory, where they remixed X-copy works. Exclusive artworks have been produced for @TheLostWallet, and Treeskulltown has been selected as an artist for NFT.NYC 2023 and the MOWNA Biennial. Additionally, they are part of the "Let Be Art #NFC23 Lisbon" exhibition curated by Braw Haus x Tezos France x Lezard House.
