THINKARTWORKTT Studio was envisioned in 2011 after Visual Artist, Mentor and Owner Fitzroy Hoyte’s exhibitory trip to South Africa.

The Studio’s purpose pivots around the promotion of dialogue between artists of different disciplines and nationals, with a specific focus on Art and Networking.
The TAW Internship Program
This program was specifically designed to provide a cohesive experience whereby young and upcoming creatives would have an opportunity to receive on the go training and experience within an artistic environment. The TAW internship program is an open, unpaid internship and applicants are welcome all year. Applicants would be given a respective stipend to offset the costs of transportation, lunch etc. We seek art-passionate applicants with a strong work ethic and an interest in the art industry, marketing, and sales. Space for this program is limited as we believe that quality is more important than quantity therefore we prefer to work one on one with max three interns per program cycle.
