Opportunities for #Artists wishing to break into the Asian market

blogDotN

Artists around the world regularly contact Artist Marketing Resources for details on getting their work into the growing Asian art market. Often these artists target Tokyo Japan as their point of entry. There are other cities to consider–Singapore, Manila, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei and Seoul.

Dot.N is a Seoul, Republic of Korea (aka South Korea) based online gallery and arts project planning site scheduled to launch on April 1st 2015.

They’ve invited more than 5000 artists internationally to register on the Dot.N site on April 1st and upload their art images.

Jeonghyun Lee of the Dot.N Arts Planning company said, ” Up to this point, the system looks similar to existing sites such as Behance.” Dot.N wants to establish an “artists’ online archive on a grand scale.”

When artists all over the world sign-up to the Dot.N website, they will be exhibiting and sharing their artworks with art collectors and the art buying public, as well as business enterprises, banks, hospitals, advertising agencies and web agencies who will have options to buy and use (license) artists’ digital art images. This is one way Dot.N will generate additional income for their artists.

The Dot.N Arts Planning company will advertise and promote the availability of both the digital images and the original artworks on their new site.

Seek Art, a Beta site for what I refer to as high-end art, produced the RAZE site-specific exhibition in Beijing featuring a range of media, including sculpture, installations, sound, and street actions with QR-Codes appearing as part of the exhibition pointing to a media based project online.

For RAZE, the artist Zhang Ding served placebo ecstasy-shaped cakes to the viewing audience during his performance, inviting them to consume and altering their states of mind or experience through participation. The artist then took portraits of viewers.

Seek Art then produced a limited edition DVD of the RAZE exhibition, available in their /Lab.

The Seek Art shop offers limited-edition art objects created by  artists and produced by their /lab.

The SEEK-ART.com network of international artists range in medium and practice.  Michele Thursz, Founder and Artistic Director, is an independent cultural producer and consultant based in New York City. From 1999-2009, Thursz co-founded and directed Moving Image Gallery [MIG], NYC, one of the first galleries to show contemporary artists using electronic and computer-based mediums. You will find her contact information on the Seek Art site.

Blossom Verlinsky: Art at The Miami International Art Fair and The Palm Beach Art Show

Hi Marie
Finally organized the photos I took at the shows into a coherent presentation.
I hope you are able to use them, so those who could not attend, can have a little
glimpse into some of the flavor of the events. There were many other paintings and
sculptures – I chose these as before, because they touched me – whether content,
technique or allusions.
Best

This is the entrance gangway to The Miami International Art Fair – Art is exhibited on the SeaFair, a 228′ mega yacht with 28 galleries–a truly unique venue for art-anchored adjacent to the Intercontinental Hotel.

This is 4th show aboard the yacht – as usual, visitors were artistically dressed – vying for attention with the art. One male visitor in black leather was attracted to his own image in every reflective surface and took advantage to admire himself and preen–ignoring the art around him.

Paul Rousso, Crumpled Bill,   printed on synthetic material  approx 36″x48, Robert Fontaine Gallery, Miami, Florida
A soon to be discarded element of our culture – an icon to be replaced with digital monetary transactions. Quite magnetic – its scale and detailed engraving pull you into the sculptural image.

How surrealist is this?

blogKunLunzi

Kun Lunzi   Painting  approx 30″x 40″  Taihe Art Gallery, Beijing, China

A master in this ancient technique transformed into the present with its directness and power–mythical landscape using washes of color and opaque layers of paint conveying the Taoist philosophy of transcending reality, space and time. It is an evocation of a spiritual place that is encountered during meditation or dreams. The landscape is transformed through the artist’s aesthetic.
***************************************************************************************************

The Palm Beach Art Show at the Palm Beach Convention Center is in its 16th year – has over 70 galleries showing artist’s work. The show is crowded with enthusiastic viewers spending much time looking at the work. There was a serious interest in the art itself–well dressed, bejeweled and bedazzled by the work.

An abstract painting using light – suspended in space – colors changing – technical and lyrical – magical in its conception – mesmerizing.

There are three works – Poetry in glass overlays of shaped translucent colors – elements of nature frozen in a vessel.

Remembrance of things past – personal mythology – recollections in the translucence of glass. Insight into identity and immorality as an artist and as a woman.

Symbols of ancient rites – bits and pieces of cave scratchings and implements captured in a transparent box. Artifacts of an old soul written lyrically – frozen in time.

Yang Yang    Painting  approx 5′ x 8′    YY Gallery, Chicago

A soulful painting of figures engulfed in a mist of memories – layered and evocative of ancient rites, Deeply felt and conveyed with washes of paint and startling bright crimson – a chiaroscuro effect -perhaps circus performers.

Studied at the Louis Lumiere School of Cinema and trained with masters of photography in France. This lovely photograph has a painterly quality – luminescent figure emerging from darkness.

Short Story, The Waiting Room– based on my travels in China

I typed my short story, The Waiting Room, from my contributors’ copy of the now defunct print magazine Clamor (with a C), that published it in 2005, along with an illustration. I submitted the story  to Yahoo!

The short story is set in a foreigners waiting room the Beijing train station. Here is the Yahoo! link:
