Have you heard of the saying: “I don’t know much about art, but I know what I like”? I can’t remember the author of this saying but it makes sense. The more exposure I have to art, the more admiration I have for each unique and exquisite piece of art. Blogging has given more opportunity to visit artists’ websites, museums, galleries, art schools. This experience has not only open my mind to art but it also inspire me to seek for more beautiful pieces to admire.
Through my journey of searching I came across some great pieces (see below). What’s special about the website that offer these pieces is that it’s a place where artists can offer their artwork to the world; it’s like an art market where you can buy and sell art. Art admirers can view all kinds of artworks, from paintings to photography and more, by various talented artists. The artists of the website called this venture The Art Project; a place where artists will benefit in every way and where art lovers can buy artwork online with reasonable prices.
Art isn’t always pretty, some are difficult or even painful to look at. Try to see beneath the surface of the object, to imagine the artist’s experience while making it, his or her unique viewpoint. Enter the experience with an open mind and you will leave with a fresh perspective.
I am not much of an artist, but if you are I encourage you to submit your work. Who knows…you might be able to sell artwork online successfully!
