About Us

At East West Artisans our vision is to create a sustainable bridge between artistic creators and collectors while supporting the local community and charities to create future opportunities...


John Davis - A native of Southern California, John migrated to Australia in 1989 where he designed and managed innovative residential projects and led award winning customer service solutions for Australia's number one telecom provider.  After 13+ years in mainland China, John now resides in Singapore and is now working towards expanding both the EWA Art platform and charity support efforts in Southeast Asia.

As Founder and Director of "East West Artisans" and "Building Bridges-Building People Asia", John's vision is to create an opportunity for featured artists to show and sell their works and to create opportunities for support of art therapy programs in China and Southeast Asia.

We currently support several schools and organizations, including Tianjin Jian Hua Autism Training Center (China), Phuket Special Education Center (Thailand) , Red Pencil (Singapore) and Riding for Disabled (Singapore) 

Our featured artists proudly support our charity outreach programs by producing specialized art products and sacrificing sales revenue to support various programs. At EWA we use our revenue to cover expenses when delivering art therapy equipment to the various schools we support. 

With open arms we welcome other artisans to join with us as we bring more color into the lives of students with special needs. 

Social Responsibility

At East-West Artisans we believe wholeheartedly that as we are blessed with success we are responsible to give back to the local community. East West Artisans pledge a percentage of our profits to the various projects and schools we proudly support.

Many of our artistic contributors also contribute to the charities of choice in their local areas.

Routine updates on how these pledges and contributions are helping others will be available in our Blog section and on our Facebook page
