Art & Mindfulness – how art appreciation and art ‘consumption’ can positively improve your state of mind


Samir Ceric is a serial entrepreneur, investor, philanthropist, mentor and coach with a strong legacy in the creative industry which includes launching award winning businesses. These days he is focused on technology and truly disrupting the fields of art, fashion and sport; aiming to create more transparency and openings in these industries for high level investments. In addition to that, working with a number of institutions and individuals as a mental health campaigner supporting initiatives Prince Harry, Prince William and Princess Kate put together called Heads Together as well as Mind charity led by Stephen Fry. Samir has appeared live or has been recorded on ITV, BBC, NBC News, CNN, Al Jazeera as well as in articles in The Times, The Financial Times, Time Out London, the Guardian, The Sunday Times, Vogue Italia, Vogue UK, Madame Figaro. Labelled as one of the ‘UK’s Most Powerful People in Art & Fashion’ by the Times Magazine and ‘London’s Top Tastemaker’ by Time Out London (alongside his wife, a renowned British fashion designer).

Samir recently got involved with START Art Fair’s 5tth edition, annually held at Saatchi Gallery where he helped launch the START’s Collectors Club Dinner and START Art Patronage Program. He also introduced Art World Forum to the fair which led to START’S first art conference alongside the START Drinks Sponsor, OSCAR 697, and START Hotel Partner, Baglioni Hotel, numerous galleries, artists and speakers. He moderated a panel entitled ‘A New Breed of Art Fairs for a New Generation of Collectors’ with Deborah Harris, Gallery Consultant & Former Deputy Director, The Armory Show New York and Utsava Kasera, Entrepreneur, Investor & First START Patron of the Arts, both of whom Samir introduced to the conference organiser. The panel discussed the topics such as ‘How are emerging art fairs breaking new ground?; How are they attracting new collectors and greater audiences?; and What are the opportunities and challenges being faced today? ‘ and came up with some great insights and conclusions. Samir also led a guided tour for a London members club showing them the highlights of the art fair and also introducing them to some artists and galleries he has nurtured over the years who are now some of his best protégés.

Samir is very excited about the launches of his most recent ventures including the Art Coach (aimed at empowering artists and guiding them through the complex ecosystem of the art world, demystifying it in the process) and the Art Trainer (aimed at professionals interested in learning more about the art industry, how it operates, and how one starts an art collection being guided and empowered in the process) with its first course title "Art & Mindfulness" launching in November 2018
