Artists market was started by Adam Ferrante and his brother Christian in 2002. Adam, a sculptor, after graduating from Victorian College of Arts had a short stint in United States, where he was exposed to the DUMBO collective, an artist run market under the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. An inspired Adam with the help of his brother turned their father’s junkyard into an Artists market which is running successfully for the last 16 years.
