@womenpainters

Women Painters is a non-profit, education-oriented instagram profile @womenpainters aimed at increasing awareness among art industry professionals of the high quality work that women artists create. The main mission is to catalyse gender equality in contemporary art now.

The project is very much inspired by my muse Reese Witherspoon who founded Hello Sunshine – a media company that puts women at the centre of every story they create and celebrate.

Augusta Atla is founder of @womenpainters
