Future50 UK Contemporary Artists at Axis – artmarketblog.com
A fantastic opportunity to purchase work by some of Britain’s hottest emerging artists called Future50 has recently been launched by Axis, the online contemporary art portal. According to the website, Axis (http://www.axisweb.org) is the best online resource for information about contemporary art. The website features profiles of professional artists and curators, interviews, discussions, art news, debates and showcases the artists to watch.
Future50 features fifty of the most interesting and significant UK artists of 2008, handpicked by curator and gallerist Ceri Hand and Axis curator Liz Aston from the Axis website. The project provides a snapshot of diverse, exciting contemporary practice alongside the opportunity to buy great works of art. All work is available for sale and can be purchased online. All the works on display have affordable price tags, starting from £120.
