Who is Shaksfin?

Shaksfin is an international production house, artist agency and consulting service, specialized in the Performing and Visual Arts field in Europe and Asia. The dynamic team of aspiring producers, agents, entrepreneurs, and arts and event managers with its home base in Singapore was co-founded by Hannes Nimpuno and Shireen Seow in the year 2000.

What sets us apart is that Shaksfin acts as bridge between Europe and Asia, providing a platform where the diverse Eastern and Western cultures are merged, facilitating communication, artistic and business exchange.

After living and working for many years in both worlds, we offer a profound knowledge of the arts scenes, the central players and – sometimes even more important – the cultural aspects and business conventions of the Eastern and the Western culture. An invaluable quality, particularly in China and other upcoming Asian markets.

Using a well-proven network and intrinsic knowledge of the respective customs and work procedures, Shaksfin ignites, creates, produces, facilitates and markets international stage shows, festivals and concert tours, large scale multi-media projects, and high end corporate events in Europe and Asia.

We focus on providing comprehensive solutions – from research to strategic planning, conceptualisation, execution, marketing, and project documentation. Highly personalized packages are tailor-made to suit each individual or project need.

Shaksfin’s main activities:

  • artist agency – mostly for musicians, orchestras, dancers and multi media artists
