I’ve been thinking about Ula Einstein’s art over the past several months, ever since she contacted me about her work. My overall impression is that her artworks are simultaneously detailed and minimal. It can become something of a conundrum thinking about this dichotomy. Yet that’s what stays with me–her lightweight airy paper works so complexly patterned. Even the color spots in the artist’s mixed media originals and prints contain an illusion that they are free-floating forms.
As she encompasses so much territory, Ula refers to herself as a “multi-disciplinary” artist “engaged with fragility and substance.”
Ula Einstein’s “mixed media” materials include paper, fire, hot glue, color pencils, and inks, as she employs the active techniques of burning, cutting, crumpling, tearing, piercing, erasing, taping, and stitching, among other actions. Ula sums up all this activity by simply stating — “making is part of the content.”
The art originals in Ula’s 2014-’15 Vortex in Orbit series, ©Ula Einstein, consist of Prismacolor premium color pencils, fire, and hot glue. Limited Edition prints from the originals are digitized on a Cruse Scanner and professionally printed using archival pigments, and then signed and numbered in the edition by the artist.
Prints and artworks can also be commissioned to larger sizes to meet your needs. Contact the artist via her website here.
Ula Einstein also creates installations in components in her studio, which she then reconfigures for each exhibition.
Ula Einstein is a highly visible New York City artist who exhibited several of her paper works at the 2015 Flux Art Fair seen here in photos published in a Hyperallergic feature. Üla’s work is internationally exhibited in galleries, museums, and non-profit art spaces, and are in numerous art collectors private art collections.
Below are more artworks in the artist’s Vortex in Orbit series, as well as more on her materials and studio practice.
Ula describes her art practice in this interview in her studio–
Most artists have their work for sale in the Saatchi online gallery, and perhaps in a few other online galleries, in addition to their own website, blog or online portfolio. Creating a presence on other sites extends your reach to those who buy art for their homes and businesses.
Here are a few newer art sites that caught our attention recently–
Ampliative Art is a new art site in Spanish and English with very grand plans and a manifesto. They hold live meetings and are currently crowdfunding to build their online platform. If you are the type of artist who likes to get involved from the early stages of development and growth then this may be the place for you.
Artellite, based in Canada, is for artists, art galleries, and arts organizations to join in those categories. They talk about transparency, and you do see right away when you visit the site the number of users. The site has been under development since 2014 and says that they are about e-commerce solutions for the Art World and about selling art. They have an interesting curated collection. Take a look and if your art is a good fit you can join the site free here to check out the features. I noticed that Artellite offers sales options in multiple currencies–US Dollars, Singapore Dollars, Hong Kong Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Australian Dollars, Great Britain Pounds and Euros. Joining could extend your reach and international selling abilities.
The Artful Project is calling itself the new home of affordable art, and in this instance the word affordable seems a euphemism for print–and primarily photography based prints though they seem to be branching out into text-based artworks. They have curated collections and participate in Designers fairs and the not surprisingly Affordable Art Fairs.
Experts project a huge increase in online art sales. According to the Fine Art Multiples site that published an article a couple of weeks ago– What is Driving the Demand for Artist Editions and Multiples?—
“The internet’s ever-increasing role in the art market has been backed up with forecasters predicting e-commerce to increase significantly over the next five years. According to the Hiscox Online Art Trade Report, 2015, the value of the online art market will rise to $6.3 billion by 2019. A $4.7-billion increase since 2013.”
They further make the point that selling in this competitive and flourishing requires the provenance and certification of the work featured online as growing in importance.
Artists selling directly to their buyers have an advantage of providing living proof of authenticity of the work, and will like more sales by providing each buyer with a printed and signed certificate of authenticity with each print sale.
Artists looking for art print sales platforms with find hundreds on our e-list here with new venues added.
We’ve updated our e-list of hundreds of POD (Print-On-Demand) art sales sites, as well as adding many other new print sales options, such as sites like Print Solo a new platform for buying and selling fine art original prints and artists’ books.

Danielle Burch is a graduate completing her MFA degree at The School of Art, College of Imaging Arts & Sciences, Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York, USA. This current semester, Danielle is one of 9 graduate students in artist Alan Singer’s Business Practices For Fine Artists class.
Alan Singer recently asked–
In your marketing materials research do you rate the effectiveness of some of the many sites that are proliferating like Fine Art America, and Art Pickle? My students ask me all the time which ones are the best, and I look around and each time there are a dozen new ones.
In the past I have paid membership fees for some of these sites, but I don’t think any of them have resulted in sales. Maybe name recognition but little business.
What do you find out when you look at them… Any advice?”
In response, to Which online galleries are best?, I replied that it would vary artist to artist, and I offered to do a case study to analyze some of the factors an artist might consider when deciding which online galleries to try. Alan’s student Danielle Burch volunteered to be the subject and I reviewed her artwork, bio/CV and website here. Also I’m assuming that the main goal of all the student artists in Alan Singer’s class is to get sales– although it’s nearly impossible to divorce the necessary visibility of art from sales of art.
WHERE YOUR FRIENDS ARE…
Danielle also identified a site, Art Pickle, as popular with students, writing that “Art Pickle is a website that allows artists to promote their art and open studio events along with links to galleries hosting or sponsoring their work.”
I agree, that where your artist friends are selling is an important factor to consider. When I viewed Danielle’s art, right away I thought of the site Deviant Art , which has long been a site for young artists actively engaged in cross-promotions with their friends and actively building a large following and achieving consistent sales. Being an active artist on the Deviant Art online gallery site is the key to success.
When I first viewed the images of the paintings Danielle Burch sent –above and below in this article–I thought they were Surrealism, perhaps with aspects of Pop Surrealism and Dystopian art, which are very specific genres or niche markets.
Although Danielle may not agree, and may be heading in a different direction with different interests, as stated in her Artists Statement, she sees her work as a series dealing with “abstraction, realism and assemblage to convey aspects of hearing loss related to my life story,” and combining “abstraction and trompe l’oeil” in her paintings.
Since I see her work as primarily Surrealism, I’d suggest that for increased visibility she might get a free page featuring her work on the UK site Surrealism, and perhaps join a Surrealist group, such as the BeInArt Surreal Art Collective that publishes books of their art, and puts on curated group exhibitions while maintaining a strong online presence.
For sales, Danielle might add her portfolio to two large and diverse online galleries, one is Saatchi, which has featured a Saatchi Surrealism Collection. Saatchi is known for having an annual high volume of art sales in all price ranges and for putting on live exhibitions of online gallery artworks. In 2013, a BBC News article quoted Rebecca Wilson, Director of Saatchi Gallery as saying, ” We sell more art in a month that most brick-and-mortar galleries do in a year.” Saatchi has offices in New York City and Los Angeles, California and they put on live exhibits in both US cities.
The second large online gallery, Ugallery features the Surrealism genre here. Ugallery stated that, “almost 70% of artists have sold one painting through Ugallery, and one sale usually leads to more.”

Africa was chosen for the opportunity it offers to lower the cost of ownership of original art, and to help significantly with the financial position of these individual artists. This dual benefit is only possible because a Dollar or Euro is worth far more, in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria or South Africa, than anywhere in Europe, Canada or the United States.
Did you know there are over 300 million monthly Instagram users? This successful app has been around for less than 5 years, but it has turned into a massive social network and its growth does not seem to stop. Not too long ago, an Instagram picture made the cover of The Wall Street Journal. No kidding! Undoubtedly, Instagram is one of the most popular photo-sharing sites today.
What is so great about uploading pictures to Instagram? Well, it allows you to choose among various filters and end up with professional-looking pictures. You can fix any lighting issues or make your photos look more artistic just by selecting some of the available filters.
Now, since photo enthusiasts take enough pride on their shots to share them with their followers, wouldn’t you take that hobby one step ahead and transform them into canvas prints? All you have to do is select your most treasured Instagram photos and ask a professional online printer like 4over4.com to do the rest.
The best thing about a personalized project is that you get to choose the photo you want to print, the material you want and where to place it after it is done. It is your project, so there are no rules to follow. Online printers offer several options and you can take your time to choose exactly what you need. For instance, take a look at this canvas print catalog, they let you customize size, print finish and paper type.
When you are creating a small art gallery for your home or office, you can choose either rolled or stretched canvas. Both options will give your space a unique touch However, the best choice depends on your preferences, budget, the space you have available and the desired results. Here is what you need to know to make a wise decision:
Stretched canvas: if you do not want to pay big bucks on expensive frames, choose stretched canvas as they are ready to mount on the wall. Its frameless effect looks great on any wall regardless of the wall color or canvas size. Plus, a stretched canvas is less likely to be damaged.
Rolled canvas: if you have a tight budget or maybe want to build a frame of your own, this is the best option for you. A framed canvas is commonly more durable than a stretched canvas. If you have a special type of frame in mind, go with rolled canvas to make them look vintage, classy, modern or the look that fits your interior design.
Are you an amateur photographer? Do you want to create a charming environment? Log into your Instagram account and choose the most fascinating pictures you have saved. Personalize a space without spending a fortune. Remember that a picture can tell more than a thousand words; it can tell a whole story.
