Our mission

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”

- Andy Warhol

We are changing the way people engage with art

As technology disconnects us ever further, we need new ways of weaving humanity back into our lives. Our vision is to quite literally transform entire cities into galleries, supported by local artists.

Our mission is to make art accessible, beneficial, and economically feasible for businesses and organisations. In doing so, we create social and economic opportunities for local, emerging artists and meaningfully support Australia’s local art industry.

Why invest in art at work?

Art has a profound effect on people who not only make art, but all who observes and engages with art.

According to 2019 research conducted by the Shared Value Project and PWC, up to 45% of Australians experience some form of mental health issues at work, costing businesses $13bn a year.

Meanwhile, there’s a growing body of scientific research the demonstrates the benefits and effects of art in our built environment on stress reduction, creativity, and overall quality of life.

We’re not saying art will solve all the problems, but we know it is an important component of an integrated approach to mental health and well-being

Why we do what we do

For artists, it’s not just about selling art; it’s about having meaningful opportunities to get their art out and in front of people. Our research show that the biggest concern faced by artists is simply a lack of respect for art, and opportunities to share with the world. And that’s not including the fact that funding in the arts sector has decreased a drastic 80% in the past decade.

By creating opportunities for artists to get their art out from storage and on display, we’ve inspired 81% of our artists to keep creating. And if that’s not enough, 54% of our artists have been exposed to new opportunities both artistic and commercial since working with ColourSpace and our wonderful clients. These are all incredibly important, as over a third of of our artists create art for therapeutic and mental health related reasons.

For our culture and society

Art is an incredibly vital part of our society; it is a glue that enriches our lives and brings vibrancy to society. But don’t just take it from us. In a survey of more than 800 employees of 32 companies that displayed art in the workplace:


of respondents agreed that art enhanced the work environment.

Meet the team

Scott Ko
Founder and Director

A former management consultant and Innovation Executive, Scott was struck by how little engagement there was with art in many corporate environments; for many, art simply merged into the background. He saw an opportunity to revitalise offices with art, to show people the benefits that art can bring, and make a positive social impact by supporting local, emerging artists.
