One Digital Artist and His Art Licensing Success Story

Fine Art Print

One of my clients is a prolific digital fine artist with a large body of work, most of it unseen–that is unexhibited and unsold.  I found many opportunities for him, including an art licensing contract that initially began with the licensing of 12 of his image for fine art prints. Right away the artist had several sales from that contract. Just two months after signing his first ever art licensing contract with this fine art publisher, the artist wrote to me:

“G. just called. He wants to license approximately 50-60 images from me now. He is working with about 5-6 other companies including Fab.com. He is going to print on bamboo and aluminum too. You did it!”

And you can set up income streams from sales of art prints via art licensing contracts too. It will take some effort on your part. The good news is that it is easy to submit your art to these companies via email, and Artist Marketing Resources saves you time and removes the shroud of mystery around making submissions to get these print contracts, in our ebook How-To guide and our contact list.

New Artists Added to ArtRegards: Contemporary Art On E-cards

Perhaps ArtRegards is adding artists to their site slowly. I submitted my art a couple weeks ago. Yesterday, ArtRegards, which is a site based in Switzerland, curated me in. I posted several images of my art for anyone using the site to send out on e-cards. Each time someone uses my art on an e-card, I receive a royalty payment. Several of my art images are now available to send on an e-card on ArtRegards.

I noticed a few artists I know on the ArtRegards site as well. It is a fairly new site, and they are accepting artist submissions. ArtRegards, and the site I posted about yesterday, Sandalista, are both simple types of art licensing for artists to do. If you think you might want to try submitting to larger manufacturers who print art on products, Artist Marketing Resources offers an extensive list of art licensing companies –you will find the list here.

American Flat Announces Marie Kazalia’s Paintings Available As Prints On Canvas

Introducing Abstract Art by Marie Kazalia

Americanflat is proud to introduce artwork by our newest artist Marie Kazalia.  Marie’s work engages with written aspects of world cultures such as combined, fragmented, enlarged and abstracted character forms. The techniques she uses involve paint layering, poured paints, stain painting and all the possibilities that these processes open up.  Major influences on Marie Kazalia’s art include four years as an expatriate in Asia (primarily Japan, India and China) and the formal language studies she undertook there, including writing Chinese and Japanese language characters.  Each of her paintings contains traces of what is significant to the artist — personal progress, growth, shifts, changes, expansions and forward motion.  All this accumulation of thought and work, day upon day, is contained within the layers of Marie’s paintings, as form, color and texture merge in the spirituality of her abstract paintings.

Marie’s work is in permanent collection of:
- Museum of Modern Art, NY
- Museum of Modern Art, Wales
- Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, Sao Paolo, Brazil
