The GAIA Project is a not-for-profit cultural initiative launched to widen the horizons of contemporary figurative artists from around the world. The exchange of creative endeavours by artists from different countries encourages a climate of understanding, co-operation and learning that generates a more cohesive global society.
In a world increasingly dominated by schisms—whether technological, social, religious or ideological—a greater focus on the arts, particularly among younger generations, is crucial for the harmonious and peaceful development of society. Our objective is to promote at an international level figurative artists who examine their own regional cultures, traditions and folklore through their art.
When the GAIA Project was launched in 2014 it was awarded a Medal from the Italian President of Republic, Giorgio Napolitano.
The medal was given to the GAIA Project for:
Its effectiveness in promoting young figurative artists and facilitating a climate of understanding, cooperation and learning, thus generating a more cohesive international reality.
