Cheapart offers the opportunity to more artists to produce without pressure new pieces of work, and to experiment in an environment friendly toward art production. At the same time, cheapart creates, for the first time, a new market, where new art lovers are given the opportunity to be initiated into the art market, and become interested in art. The forte of the market has been significantly increasing in the last 15 years, generating a calculated force with a resilient foundation and a knowledge which systematically supports the arts. The market and its public is experienced enough to deal with simple as well as challenging conditions.
On behalf of the artist, s/he can tryout new pieces and ideas, and define afresh her/his audience, coming into direct contact with it, rather than through agents. On the other hand, conversations between artists, an exchange of ideas, and projects, help in keeping alive an effective environment. Most important is learning to collaborate and to create an artistic society based on mutual respect and trust.
There is a triangular relationship between ARTWORK-ARTIST-AUDIENCE. This chain does not work if one of the links snaps. There are no artworks without the artists, and no artists without an audience. One can chose the existing art audience, but one may also locate a new audience which expects to reach art, and buy art. Once a year, cheapart offers the opportunity – through the low and telling costs of the artworks – to an audience to actually get to meet artists, and to buy art instead of just talking about it. After Vienna and Athens, 140 artists selected from Cyprus and Greece will participate through segments of small scale artworks. Tassos Stylianou, George Georgagopoulos, and Demetris Georgagopoulos are the co-curators of these exhibitions. The aim is to create the conditions to assemble artists, curators, art theorists, and the public, bringing about intercultural dialogue, an understanding of artwork, and, an instigation and familiarization of the public to contemporary art.
Cheapart 2013, Limassol is co-curated by George Georgagopoulos and Demetris Georgagopoulos (CHEAPART), and, Tassos Stylianou (Penindaplinena Gallery). 150 international artists participate.

CHEAPART is a cultural economic and social platform with multiple benefits.
Artists percieve CHEAPART as a communication platform to introduce new concepts and develop social connections and future partnerships. Buyers in return, gain ownership of original art works at a low fixed price that artists may sell on high prices outside the context of the exhibition. The direct contact that developes amoung the public and the artist increases the level of understanding of contemporary art. CHEAPART Amsterdam 1 introduces an updated market model, an open cultural dialogue for everyone to be part of.
