About us

Artmongers was formed by artists Patricio Forrester and Julian Sharples in March 2004, specialising in participatory artworks that are colourful and approachable. We have collaborated with different groups in the public realm such as children in hospitals, young people at risk and the homeless to produce artworks that have genuinely improved their surrounding environment and created a sense of pride and ownership.

Artmongers vision is make art that addresses people in public environment. People will find artworks unexpectedly while they are going about their daily life. The artistic interventions will happen on any mundane object that surrounds us and will be transformed into an artwork, often in collaboration with others.
