About SMart Saatchiart

SMart is a collaboration of two artists (Sander Steins, based in the Netherlands and Marijah Bac Cam, based in France) who are using the same language to express themselves in a creative and personal way.
Coming from two different backgrounds of life, they found each other through the internet. It was clear that their visions and creative language fit very well together. They are balance and contrast.
