Art Celebrity: Playing the fame game in art with POWHIDA

by Brian Sherwin on 7/28/2011 11:15:16 AM

Powhida captured all the swagger of an ego-driven art star -- art celebrity at its worst. In my opinion, the installation symbolized how those who consider themselves royalty within their respected art community carry themselves. In that sense, his VIP space served more as an alter -- where Powhida presented himself for the admiration -- at least in his personas head -- of gallery visitors. Needless to say, Powhida did receive jeers from the crowd -- his outward expression of arrogance received an outward response from gallery visitors... proof that artists should really think about how they carry themselves.

Play Artists Play

by Moshe Mikanovsky on 7/28/2011 10:14:53 AM

"Play is something done for its own sake; it's voluntary; there's an inherent attraction to it; the player experiences a kind of freedom from time and perhaps loses track of his or her own self; it's open to improvisations; and finishing it leaves one wanting to do more". Doesn't that sound familiar? [...]

It's an Illusion

by Jack White on 7/27/2011 7:07:26 AM

People spend $500,000 for a major Thomas Kinkade painting and Dottie Brown (fictional) fights to get $500 for her showstopper piece. What's the real difference? The answer is an illusion. If the buyer had not seen all the hype associated with Kinkade, they might like Dottie's painting better if they were both priced at $500. Illusion plays a big part in art taste as well as pricing.

The Origins of Original Art: The stepping stone of originality in art

by Brian Sherwin on 7/24/2011 5:59:39 PM

Regardless if you have original art for sale online, enjoy viewing original art online, or seek to buy original art online remember that in reality you are viewing the response of generations of information -- one generation building on to the next and so on. Nothing is truly original -- one can easily question if originality exists. [...]

Keep on Keepin' On

by Susan Adams on 7/22/2011 9:01:55 AM

One might think that after more than 30 years of painting this question would no longer be part of my private soul-searching. Wrong. I'll admit, it is a less frequent occurrence, but when it happens, it is even MORE discouraging because of the years put in, the time, the past successes. When you are a beginner, you expect some unsuccessful efforts. But at this stage of the game? [...]

Obama Art and Obama Street Art for the 2012 Obama campaign -- Where is it? Will it have impact?

by Brian Sherwin on 7/21/2011 10:53:48 AM

In 2008 the political rhetoric of hope, change, and promises lit a powder keg of support for Obama within the U.S. art community -- artists ranging from college art students to the likes of street artist Shepard Fairey made their support clear. Art for Obama and art for change reigned. I'm not certain that we will see that same level of support from the art community again... and if we do, I wonder if it will be for a different presidential candidate. [...]

Online Art Fairs and Online Art Exhibits: Are they a valid addition to the physical art market?

by Brian Sherwin on 7/18/2011 2:16:20 PM

This form of online connection with art buyers will be more important in the future as younger art collectors rise to become major collectors within the global art market. Point blank -- just because some individuals do not view online art fairs, online art exhibits, or selling art online as valid today does not mean that it won't be considered a standard tomorrow.

Social Media Art: Twitter art projects explored -- in more than 140 characters

by Brian Sherwin on 7/16/2011 4:33:18 PM

"What is a Twitter art project?". Point blank -- it is an art project that relies on Twitter in some manner. The typical Twitter art project involves some form of 'audience' participation. It may involve asking people to Tweet an answer to some debatably clever question or merely focus on annoying 'followers' with a flood of juvenile 140 character contained prose. Twitter art projects have also been known to focus on physical spaces and aspects of time 'as it happens' -- a meshing between the 'real' and digital world. In other words, a Twitter art project can be just about anything. [...]

Pricing Art Online: If you want to sell art you must list prices for your art

by Brian Sherwin on 7/14/2011 12:36:06 PM

If you honestly don't know how to price your art work it might be wise to step back and ask yourself why you are promoting and trying to sell your art in the first place. Honestly, can you imagine if stores were ran in that way? Every item listed without a price -- leaving customers scratching their head. Would you enjoy shopping in that manner? If you want to haggle go to a flea market -- if you want to sell art list the damn prices on your artist website. [...]

Artists Rights Online: Should Artists be Wary of a Social Networking Websites Terms of Service (TOS) Agreement? Part 3

by Brian Sherwin on 7/13/2011 8:44:44 AM
1 Comment

Even if a social networking site had legal grounds to utilize user generated images on physical merchandise I assume they would be facing so many copyright infringement lawsuits that the loss of court expenses would eat up any profit made from selling the merchandise. It would be bad for business-- and bad for their corporate image. Point blank -- I think artists should be more wary of individual copyright infringers -- such as other artists. After all, those individuals could use the images 'under the radar' for profit, so to speak, compared to a website like Facebook. [...]
