In addition to having Grammy award-winning careers, Swizz Beatz and his wife, Alicia Keys, founded The Dean Collection in 2015, which has over a thousand works from rising and established artists. They also host the No Commission Art Fair, allowing a space for artists to sell their work and keep 100% of the profit.

“Swizz has an intuitive understanding of the cultural landscape and is a true creative pioneer across the intersection of art, music and business,” said UTA’s CEO Jeremy Zimmer.

"I am excited to continue creating history with the UTA team," declared Swizz. "With UTA as my partner I know my wings will span even further to do just that...CREATE!”
