Andy Warhol
Hang Him on my Wall
--No other artist is as much related with Pop Art as Andrew Warhola, worldwide known as Andy Warhol... The Prince of Pop.

--For many of you who still don't know this peculiar uniqueness of the artist, ...
Nana Andersen
The Mystery, the Beauty
... and the Best!
--Belief in the dramatic value of a strange vision of the world and human nature, is on the whole the artistic flame of Nana Andersen, sometimes showing plainly those traits which all human beings have in common, some other times assimilating aspects of those different emotional peculiar energies of the grotesque beauty, by exploring in her quality artworks, form, body, soul ...
Sonia Rijnhout
Absolutely Cutting - Edge!

--Today, in the beginning of the New Millennium, when contemporary art very often seems to be reaching that stand by point of helpless lack of innovation and originality, it's good to know that it's not quite so after all, when under our normal daily systematic research process, Artcity21 stumbles ...

Nina Nolte

An Insight of Paradise
--The work of Nina Nolte is, strange as it may seem, utopian. She portraits a universe prior to the expulsion of Paradise, with clothes and attidudes strictly contemporary, just like the masters of Renaissance and Baroque, who painted characters from the mythologie or the Bible with garments and gestures of their time. We find in Nina´s work a inalienable will based on two principles: figuration - censured so many times and even considered finished - and contemporanity. But at the same time never loosing sight of her edenic vision of mankind.
Juan Béjar’s 
Poisoned Sweets
--Transparent, nearly always swollen little faces with generous double chins. Dark eyes that show little or no emotion. Self-satisfied little mouths; ringlets; perfect outfits. Such are the children’s portraits by the Spanish painter, Juan Béjar (1946). But they are not real portraits; not replicas of real people but metaphors.
Aspiring Art Stars

--People you do business with aren't necessarily your friends.
--They are not people you go home with. They are a fact of the Art world and once you're done with them, that's it until next time. In certain cases you have to tolerate them and perhaps they tolerate you.

Contemporary Artists
--Most artists would rather cut off their right arm (... or their ear off !!!), then engage in the entrepreneurial dance that Artcity21 call "SELLING".
For many artists, that's because trying to make a dale feels like an uncomfortable means to an end.

But selling your art doesn't have to be forced and awkward. Artists can develop a sales cycle that fits their personality and isn't offensive to the buyer using ...

Fernando Botero
The Art World Legend

--Fernando Botero is one of the most successful contemporary artists right now, his paintings sell for millions. The ageing Botero is returning to his troubled homeland, Colombia, where he was raised in the same city as the drug lord, Pablo Escobar, the subject of one of Botero's most controversial paintings.

--The artist has been target of kidnap attempts and must now be accompanied everywhere by armed guards. --As Fernando Botero touches down, a huge storm is blowing up over his son, a charismatic politician dubbed the "Kennedy of South America", Botero senior is mortified by his son's self-destruction and anxious about the reception he himself will receive from his long-suffering countrymen.

Art and Stardom
Protocol Pointers

--For many artists, the primary purpose of their website is to attract the attention of art galleries and dealers. A well designed website showcasing quality Art will get the attention of arts professionals when they see it.
--But how do they find you in the first place?
--Send Letters of Invitation!
--It sounds so obvious but many artists forget that galleries are accustomed to invitations and query letters by mail. In the past, we all sent packages of slides, bios, prints, press clippings, etc... to galleries.

Francis Bacon
Painter of a Dark Vision
--Inseparable Art and Life?
--For most of his many years it was simply not to speak or write of Francis Bacon's private life, whispered to be not merely disreputable but punishable, at least in his first half century, by sanctions almost as harsh as those for treason and murder!
--Though to critics of any sensibility it was obvious that his private life was largely the source of imagery and energy in his paintings and unquestionably crucial to his aesthetic development, there were others who - through overwhelming prominence on the Arts Council and our television sets, almost as celebrated as himself for their performances as his interpreters - gave us a Francis Bacon distorted and bowdlerised.
