LATENT is an emerging artist platform established in late 2020 for UK based artists.

Each year we establish a small cohort of artists to represent. Our selected artists' are promoted through LATENT for a typical period of 12 months. Chiefly, the platform works to serve our artist community, profiling their work and connecting with our valued collectors (the novice and practiced alike). We look forward to sharing new work and hope that you find something to interest you.
