    Art Titles Are More Than a Courtesy

    Art Titles Are More Than a Courtesy
    New York, NY - In 2006, Art+Auction magazine ran an article on the most pressing matters in art law. Lawyer Peter Stern weighed in that the most prevalent disputes he saw in his own practice, in terms of litigation, were those over title.

    Frieze 2009: Small Paintings and Smaller Egos

    What I loved this year about Frieze was the hordes of youngsters, toting cameras and notebooks, looking intently and arguing about the works at the fair. Had the collectors all come and conquered already? [widget:9_steps_guide_art] No, for here was a tall blonde vaguely Eastern European stunner with her trophy-holder, eyeing works picked for her by a famous art consultant. And ...

    Young Galleries' Sales Explode at Frieze Art Fair
    London, UK —This year, Frieze’s organizers decided to spruce up the fair with a new section, Frame, featuring solo shows by 29 young galleries. On preview day, the section took a while to start buzzing, but once they made it past Zwirner and Gagosian and the other heavy hitters in the main section, many collectors made it over to the youth ...

    Signs of a Recovery at London Postwar Auctions

    Signs of a Recovery at London Postwar Auctions
    LONDON—Piggy-backed to the gangbuster week of the Frieze art fair, the contemporary art sales at Sotheby’s, Christie’s and Phillips de Pury & Co. were satisfyingly peppy, indicating the art market is recovering from last year’s free-fall. Although volume and overall results are still at a sobering fraction of what they were before the property tap was turned off, healthy percentage-sold rates ...

    The Next Big Thing: €20,000 ($30K) Socks as Art

    The Next Big Thing: €20,000 ($30K) Socks as Art
    LONDON—Shortly after the 11 a.m. opening bell for VIP visitors to Frieze, a collector was seen gasping after stumbling over a pair of black athletic socks lying on the floor of Hauser & Wirth’s booth. "Is it art?" he muttered, alarmed. Well, yes, it is. Swiss prankster Christoph Büchel, who back at Art Basel in June made found artworks out of ...

    Art Above Ground

    Art Above Ground
    New York, NY - Galleries don’t need many visitors to survive. They just need a few of the right visitors — people willing to spend money. As Barbara Gladstone once told New York magazine, “You don’t sell four times as many pieces if four times as many people come in.” That is the ethos of the hundreds of galleries that inhabit ...

    An Artist's High

    An Artist's High
    I took down some posts on ArtBistro about making art under the influence of illegal drugs. We can’t really allow that content on our 13 and up site. A few weeks later I was making some art and it sparked my thinking about making art and “highs”. What happened? Since becoming the Editor of ArtBistro it has been a challenge to ...

    What You Didn't Know: The ADAA Armory Show

    What You Didn't Know: The ADAA Armory Show
    New York, NY - The biggest surprise for me at the Armory Show this weekend was seeing Olafur Eliasson's work at Tanya Bonakder. His new sculptures are spherical mirrors that hang or are mounted on the wall. It is not his best work, but the departure from installations was new for me, and interesting. These seem to have movable parts that ...

    Are Flowers Art?

    Are Flowers Art?
    You may have heard of Modest Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition," a piece of music that he composed about going to a gallery and seeing different paintings. The music changed according to what the paintings communicated to the composer. This composition has long been an inspiration of collaborative projects between visual artists and artists of other genres, one of which I ...

    Interview with Amy Wilson

    Interview with Amy Wilson
    I saw Amy Wilson's work at Art Chicago earlier this year and fell in love. Art Chicago is a huge place with so much visual chaos and the throngs of people, that it can be easy to get over stimulated and desensitized. I found Amy's work in a corner of a gallery space, though, and had to get very close to ...

    Your Web Design to Markup Service
    There are dozens of sites on the web that offer PSD to HTML slicing services, and it becomes very frustrating to find the right one that will suit you 100%.

     Seen at KL: Hari Raya Graffiti
    Picture above is actually a street mural that I spotted last week, just outside the Pasar Seni LRT station. I think it’s really a nice masterpiece, so I took the picture and post it up here. The graffiti is pretty long, and I have to take a total of 3 shots and connect them in Photoshop. Below is the smaller version ...

    Interview with Ward Schumaker

    Interview with Ward Schumaker
    Biography: By not becoming a 'fine artist.' Here's what happened: it was 1965, I was 22 years-old, and judges had awarded me first place in a competition in my native state of Nebraska. I needed the money to pay the tuition for my last semester at college. But others (including the governor) decided my painting was pornographic. I finished school, bought ...
