Art Market Blog – Favourite Artist Update
I come across some fantastic artists in my day to day dealings some of whom are particularly exciting and have captured my attention. I like to keep a track of these artists and keep up to date with their careers which I find quite inspiring so I thought that I would share with you all some of the recent significant achievements of a few of my favourite artists, all of whom would be a great investment by the way (I already own works by two of them).
Boo Saville – Boo Saville was one of the artists chosen to exhibit her work in the Saatchi Gallery stand at the London Form Art Fair from the 28th of February to the 2nd of March. A solo show of Boo’s work (her first) will be held at Martin Summers gallery in London which will open in April. Check out Boo’s work here
Amy Stein – Amy’s career continues to sky rocket with her “Domesticated” series of photographs currently being exhibited at Paul Kopeikin gallery until the 26th of April. Also being exhibited is Amy’s photograph “Peri, Route 64, Kentucky” from the series Stranded, 2005 which is currently on show at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art as part of the “Car Culture” exhibition until the 27th of April. Check out Amy’s website at http://www.amysteinphoto.com
Lynda Lehmann – Lynda had a successful solo exhibition titled “PERIPHERAL VISION” at the Alfred Van Loen Gallery at the South Huntington Library in South Huntington, NY, from the 9th of February to the 6th of March. You can check out Lynda’s work at http://www.lyndalehmann.com
Tattfoo Tan – Tattfoo Tan has recently been mentioned in various different publications recently including the New York Times, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Metro, New York News Day and Art News most of which have featured Tattfoo’s NMS mural project. The NMS (Nature Matching System) is a chart of colours that correspond to different foods and was “developed by Tattfoo as a reminder to consume your daily recommended doses of color. The shades of color displayed at farmers’ markets are more than skin deep, reflecting the inner potential of every fruit and vegetable; intense colors might even be called nature’s nutrition labels”. This chart was turned into a large mural and has been installed on Front Street in Brooklyn where it will remain until January 2009. For more info visit http://www.tattfoo.com
