In Vienna last week I visited an art gallery called the Art Supermarket that sells affordable art at 3 set prices under £500. It’s a great model I thought. The owner, who is a friend of a friend, has asked me to send him some of my work to potentially sell there. This is exciting. I’ve got such a huge variation in the ‘art’ I create it’s going to be hard to nail it down to one direction. My preferred direction is my collage and mixed media 3D framed pieces. One of these, with the bird scull, is in an earlier blog post.
We also visited the museums quater to the Velazquez in the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Art History) as well as the modern art history museum book shop which I could have spent all day in.
Thought I’d post a picture of the apartment stairs we stayed in, with Tina, my Austrian friend and what looks like my moon landing.
I Love Gestalten, they are my favourite publisher of anything creative. I picked up this excellent book on my visit to a modern art museum in Vienna, which by the way is a extremely beautiful city.
You can buy it here I think http://shop.gestalten.com/books/age-of-collage.html
Some of the collages inside remind me of some of the early Fabric nighclub flyers from 10/ 12 years ago. That was my dream job back then, graphic designer for Fabric. I was actually offered that job in 2009 but couldn’t take it as I was living in Berlin and liking it too much to leave. Still, nice to be asked.
Excellent Gestalten Book on Collage Design
