MICK was founded in 2022 by Maaike Nieuwenhuis to support women in the art industry. When Babette Kolff joined in 2023, they quickly discoverd the disbalance between men and women in the art world and decided to stand up. Not just by supporting the women in their portfolio, but by trying to close the gap.
As an agent MICK runs day-to-day business, manages sales and enhances growth. Providing tailor-made long term strategies to connect female art talent with her audience, without just knocking on gallery doors. As the first agency for female artists, MICK goes off classical roads to always look for new potential opportunities whilst campaigning for her artists.
“By first hand experiencing the struggle of finding your way in a new business, I can easily emphasize with what our artist go through. Through guidance, support and being a sparringpartner, we walk this road together."
“Always seeing potential in everything when there is passion and authenticity involved. By mastering the art of connecting with the right people at the right time, I believe magic can happen”
