IndieWalls is automated art consulting. It’s a site for artists to easily pitch their art, with one click, to hotel and residential projects actively seeking artworks for their walls.

This site is a huge time-saver for artists to reach out to new markets!

THE PROBLEM, as IndieWalls explains it, is that every commercial property needs artwork, yet they have a hard time finding real artwork from real artists for their interior spaces.
So to create THE SOLUTION IndieWalls has built a platform that lets commercial art buyers find real artwork from real local artists. “In the past year we’ve helped create art collections for hotels like Thompson Chicago, Andaz 5th Avenue, and Trump Soho…”

To get started–Create your artist account on IndieWalls and upload images of your art. You can now review current project actively seeking artworks and send them your pitch!

Plus, when new projects seeking artwork are added to the site, you will receive an email notification that they are accepting pitches.

Once you find a project you are interested in. Review the project specifications and photos to help determine what you will offer them in your Pitch.

It’s super easy to see, at a glance, what artworks the project is seeking. For instance, the hotel project Gild Hall is currently seeking colorful, edgy work– their wants clearly tagged like this:

You have artworks to fit their needs, so now you want to create your pitch.

It is fast and automated. You simply click on the word *Pitch* that appears on each of your artwork thumbnail images. A box appears that allows you to write your text and add more images–such as detail shots, or wall installation views of your art. You can pitch that particular artwork, with retail price, or you can offer commissions.

Then click send. Your pitch goes to the project and your artwork appears on the project selection page–so project administrators will be sure to see it.

It’s that easy!

Another project currently active on IndieWalls–the Beechwood Residential building, under construction, lists their color pallet as teal, sage, green, mustard/gold, beige, light grays, medium gray and charcoal. They want Abstract, Architectural, Black and White, Classic and Geometric artworks for their lobby and corridors.

This essentially is all you need to know to pitch a series of your fine art photographs for their corridors, or offer a commission of large scale geometric paintings for their lobby.  Create and send in your pitch to them for consideration. Time spent creating your pitch on IndieWalls in minimal and could lead to a sale or commission.

There are many more automated sites used by art consultants! We have a huge collection of Art Consultants who are seeking artworks for their databases–get it here. Their databases contain your art images that they show to their clients. It’s easy to get your work into art consultant databases–and we tell you how–in the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions ebook here and here.

In February, we announced the launch of African Portrait Project and you can read that article here. We also published an article on unconventional portraits and included work by African artists. Read the article, The Unconventional Portrait: Moving Away From the Literal Likeness here.

The African Portrait Project has grown to include even more accomplished artists from several African countries. Many have fewer resources than most of us are accustomed to, such as cell phones only to photograph their art and to connect with the rest of the world via social media. Therefore these African artists have elected to join together in a group on Facebook to share images of their work and offer portrait commissions with the assistance of Dr. Keith McFarlane. View the Facebook page and more art here.

Dr. McFarlane’s African Portrait Project seeks to provide these African artists with an income from patrons in more affluent nations, by offering art lovers outside of Africa opportunities to commission portraits at extremely affordable prices. A win-win for all and when you participate by commissioning an artist, gives you an original fine art portrait of yourself or your family members.

These commissioned portraits are real fine art, one-of-kind, and may be hyper-realistic pencil drawings on paper, an oil painting, or expressive painting in other fine art materials.

Portrait artists in Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, and other African countries will be happy to consult with you one-on-one to determine the best options for your portrait.

You can also read more details on commissioning a portrait here.

If you have questions, or wish to find out how you can commission your first portrait, contact Dr. Keith McFarlane via email: editor@negativeentropy.com  Please remember that Dr. McFarlane is based in Amsterdam, and asks you to keep in mind that Amsterdam time is about hours ahead of your time zone in the USA. Here is Dr. McFarlane’s phone number: +31 20 89 32 791

Commissioning a foreign artist for a portrait, and the artist accepting foreign commissions involves a high level of trust on both sides. Recognizing this, Dr. Keith McFarlane, scientist and owner of the Amsterdam based company Negative Entropy and the owner and creator of the ArtWorld app available on iTunes, created this commission service. He will safeguard the payment while assuring quality and delivery of the commissioned artwork, and will only take a 5% commission to cover international transaction fees, currency exchange rates, bank transfer fees and like expenses.
