HellyUK has pointed out a couple interesting links relating to the Promoting your Art post yesterday.
From Times Online, they talk about artists using a whole bunch of new marketing and sales techniques that were once frowned upon by “fine artists.” Heavyweight hitters like Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk and Peter Blake are selling their own work at the Art Car Boot Fair..
“With Sotheby’s and Christie’s holding record-breaking sales almost every week, artists are cashing in every which way they can. The modern-day art wagon is bursting with big names peddling art paraphernalia, from Blake’s tax-disc holders, or Noble and Webster’s necklace version of their F***ing Beautiful sculpture, to Damien Hirst’s pill charm bracelets and skull T-shirts.” Times Online
The Art Car Boot Fair 07 was held on the 8th of July. A few artists (Sir Peter Blake, Sarah Baker, Ian Monroe and Anthony Gross) were also commissioned to paint a new Vauxhall car for the day.
In another comment on the Car Promotion post of yesterday, Steven suggests making your whole car into a work of art! He says your life will never be the same again, and I can see why!
Also, from a post last year.. Scott Wade has used the dirt on his car to create art.
The possibilities are endless..
