With over 10 million viewers worldwide, ArtTour International Magazine is every artistes’ go-to platform for exposure to a global audience.

The ArtTour International TV show is an award-winning TV series whose host is international art celebrity Viviana Puello, the Olee Public Media Awards of Excellence winner in New York.  The show, which airs on MNN-HD Spectrum 1993 on Thursdays at 5:30 pm, gives life-changing exposure to artists globally. ArtTour International is the only art magazine of international repute that supports art activists, addressing environmental and social issues while bringing Art to the screens of art lovers, collectors, galleries, and museums worldwide.

Every fall, ArtTour International releases a special issue titled “ARTISTS FOR A GREEN PLANET,” which is dedicated to the environment and showcasing art activists’ activities worldwide. The magazine is distributed in prints by Barnes & Noble stores. The digital format is also available on iTunes, Magzter, and Issuu. The 2020 digital issue will be interactive. It showcases a virtual exhibition where readers will get to see a video presentation of every ARTYA Award-winning artist’s artwork.

Viviana Puello, ATIM’s Editor-in-Chief, is a passionate environmental activist, selected by the New York Weekly as one of the Top 10 Female Entrepreneurs of 2020.  She founded ARTYA awards, and the maiden Ceremony took place in Florence, Italy, in November 2017. Since then, the tradition continues to be celebrated every year in honor and celebration of art activists worldwide. As an avenue to share their messages, spread the message, showcase their arts, give an account of their activism struggle, and engage in environmental conservation conversations. The 2020 edition of the Ceremony will be held on December 4th at 6:00 pm. Due to the pandemic, the event will be virtual, the first time of it being so.

The 2020 edition of the ARTYA awards will reunite at least fifty artists from around the world, and this is the core of what makes the distinction very special. ArtTour International Magazine stands tall and apart because it is the only leading publication that pays attention to environmental activists. The target audience for this year’s Ceremony includes artists, art lovers, environmental activists, and organizations, to mention a few. What separates ARTYA awards from the rest is the honoree because here, they honor professional artists who have dedicated and are dedicating their careers to care for the environment.

According to Viviana, her drive and motivation result from her passion for arts and the environment and the desire to support those making a difference. Seeing that our planet is the only place where we can survive, meaningful steps should be put in place to ensure that the next generation has a place to live and call home.

When asked where she sees her company in the next five years, she says, “As a leader in the Art industry creating more programs to support artists and support activists.” The goal is to inspire and charge everybody to choose a more sustainable lifestyle while making extra efforts to take care of the environment, take responsibility for the betterment of the planet, and save the earth from a destructive catastrophe.
