I’m a Colombo-American, artist, writer, curator, film maker, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and unstoppable manifester with over twenty-five years of experience serving the art industry. I lived and worked in Italy for more than a decade and currently split my time between New York, Ferrara and Florence. And I sneak for vacation to Colombia any opportunity I get.

What made me who I am

After a difficult childhood suffering from my parents’ abandonment, I developed a belief system that kept me from fulfilling my dreams and reaching my goals. I didn’t dare to dream too big; I didn’t believe success was for everyone. But I was wrong. We all have that creative force that allows us to reach who we truly are. My spiritual journey opened my eyes to reveal the power within my soul. My success story didn’t happen overnight; as a matter of fact, I’m still working on it because success is a journey. It’s taking me time, dedication, and commitment. Plus, many hours of creating art, which is and always will be, my healing source. 

about viviana puello

In my life, everything I do revolves around ART

At twelve years old, I discover in art a new universe. Art was a crucial element in my healing journey and it is the inspiration that leads my exciting career.  I love sharing art because for me to share art is to share joy.

I get you

I believe the reason why I’ve been effective with my work is that I am also an artist, I get you. We are very sensitive people, each new day is a challenge, But trust that the experiences you have gone through will guide you to a life beyond your wildest dreams. I did it, you can do it too.

Art makes the world a better place

I believe in the power of art as a catalyst for social change. My goal is to help artists like you share their messages to create a positive impact that will elevate global consciousness.

How I got started

I worked as an independent artist and curator for about ten years and created my first art organization Vivid Arts Network, helping artist showcase their art in international events.

Then years later, in 2011, with the help of my partner Alan Grimandi, I created ArtTour International, a revolutionary multi-media platform that comprises a quarterly art magazine, two annual publications, and a TV show. Our organization is dedicated to helping artists conquer the international art scene. ArtTour International Magazine leads the market with over 2 million readers in more than 205 countries. Distributed on the shelves of all Barnes & Noble stores, as well as 1,200 newsstands worldwide.

Through my award-winning TV show, “Arttour International,” which airs every Thursday at 5:30 in Spectrum 1993 in NYC, and a network that expands to thousands of artists, galleries, and art organizations, I help people like you discover their greatness and unfold their endless possibilities.

When you put discipline, intention, faith, and the right mindset together, you create a life where everything is possible.
