Studios in London UK and Poland

Marta is a painter that develops a deep connection with her subject. The paintings on

shown are based in nature, but she manages to transfer her emotions onto the canvas

with a special abstract beauty. Her colour sense is sensitive, yet exciting and original.

Marta uses deep contrast of blue/blacks to heighten the tonal quality of the rich textured

oil paint. Her work is substantial both in size and depth and obvious talent.

artists offer price range £2500 to £4100

all paintings are 100cm x 1200cm oil on canvas



Studios in Arizona USA

The power of Brian’s work is only matched by the natural environment he is surrounded by.

His intent is to put his visual intelligence by creating work that stays with the viewer. Brian

is a passionate painter and he desires that his work has a timeless quality. The work is not

abstract, as such, or formal nor impressionistic, it is figurative. Only in the sense that you

know what you are seeing, it is only after time that you begin to ‘‘feel’ what you seeing.

Studios in Sheffield England UK

Alison has been featured by TUBES magazine and is known as a fine artist with a strong

following and avid collectors. Her work embraces imagination, memory. Sometimes she uses

sketch work from her many walks in nature. More importantly her aim is to create an

atmosphere in her work, one which is linked to emotion and sensibilities of place all condensed

into a semi-abstract two dimensional plane.

Karen has a readily identifiable colour palette that is married perfectly with her paintings

of a specific era when romance, music and human emotions were played out on a stage

and dramatised in film. Her graphic stylisation of her subject matter seems to be almost

poster like, which is created with great care and attention and natural talent.

Philip has been painting for over thirty years. He is an accomplished artist of natural ability and

Paul Browne

Studio in Oldham North West England

totally and authentically original.

Pauline Rignall

Pauline is a painter who has great depth in both the classic painting process and creating

contemporary work that is instinctive in application. Her work has both intellectual thinking

behind the seemingly ease of creation. Her subject matter holds visual intelligence in colour

palette choice for each different series she works on. And the works final composition, which

is arrived at over a period of time are always a delight to the eye and the mind.

the a small village in Northern England, his work is both abstract and figurative with

influences from master artists of the twentieth century. Not unlike Bonnard, Steve is a

Good news for painters who are looking to exhibit their work for a small outlay

of money. Art Number 23 is organising an open exhibition at their studio base

located at the Old Biscuit Factory Bermondsey London. The aim of Art Number 23

is to create opportunities for artists from all over the world.

Art Number 23 was founded in 2016 by Constantine Anjulatos, who is an artist.

The studio based showcase is supported by several like minded artists who are

working towards to connecting artists, curators, galleries, and art enthusiasts in

a global Network of creatives.

Art Number 23 have organised similar venues and art exhibitions in New York,

Philadelphia, Moscow, Berlin, Athens, and Amsterdam

An artists showcase exhibition in London UK runs from

from January 24th to 30th January 2019.

“the art game...”

Spike does some straight talking

“..showing paintings on line, is now the main stream for

the dissemination of an artists work, of that there can

be no doubt. Even though real life exhibitions are still

relevant for many artists, an on line presence is essential

(if only for street cred).

That old bone we chewed on “painting dead” debate

has faded away as fast as padded shoulders did in

the middle 1980’s. There has been a major change in

attitude to painting in the last few years. In part, this may

be entirely due to the need for the high street galleries

to survive the financial crisis, the one that started in

earnest in 2007 and is still having an effect now. Not to

mention adding to the problem with Donald Trump and

the European Union on the brink of collapse helped along

by Yellow shirt craziness and No Deal Brexit.

Today, more than ever, high street galleries need to sell

‘more-stuff’ and earn extra profit to pay those stupidly

high ‘business rates’ in the major Cities – And lets be

honest, paintings sell much quicker than sculpture those

‘cool’ avant-garde installations of nonsense that rely

on high brow art academics to authenticate the cultural

importance of something that most people wouldn’t

actually install in their homes, even if they don’t say so

publicly. And usually there is a heavy price tag for that

sort of contemporary art. Consequently the

contemporary ‘arty farty’ marketplace is tiny

compared to the ‘popular paintings’ art

market. Even though there are only so

many landscapes that anyone can put in

their homes. That market will also run dry

eventually. Maybe a very few of the high

street galleries will expand their perimeters

and start to take a risk, in half a decade or

so? By which time it could be too late.

Today the sheer size of the (art) market

(because of the www) has outgrown all

that ‘arty farty stuff’ by leaps and bounds –

certainly as far as turnover is concerned.

So the www has become the place to set up your stall.

Major funded on-line art galleries and some not so well

funded independent artists all have a go at selling direct

to art collectors and art lovers. Even Tubes magazine

are having a go (although they already know there is no

money to be made so why bother trying? - I’m told by

the Editor that the space for artists is in keeping with the

magazine policy - that is “Art before profit..” ...many folks

may find him, like I do, quite nuts.

The one man art galleries start-ups fail quickly- some

have a sort of ‘in the third year we will make money fiscal

plan’ and obtain a bank loans. Most, in reality,

loose much more money than they bargained for and

are wrapped up prematurely by their investors (or

more commonly the Bank)

Tomorrow will not a case of high streets chasing huge

profits for many galleries, on the contrary, it’s going to be

survival we are talking about here.

“..there is no money in Art..”

A very wise man once said to me (back in 1982).

He may have been right, but for the wrong reason, as far as I am concerned. Should Art

cannot and should not really be treated as a commodity? And be sold as such? - Stack ‘em

high, sell ‘em cheap is not an effective strategy, I think not for original art, so when times get

tough, (in Art) the tough get going or they bottle it.

The galleries are having some degree of success especially the well positioned bricks and

mortar establishments. They do use the web effectively. Many sell-out their latest exhibition

on-line, even before they hold the opening

night, which simply turns into a social event.

A night which also serves a vital purpose

for the prospective client to actually see the

Artwork for real – then the deal is invariably

clinched on the spot by the religious handing

over of the Credit Card or the signing of the

agreement of the 12 month interest free

payment scheme’

“ they say quality original art always

wins out in the end...

...(well nearly always).”

I guess the major on-line gallery self

appointed art selectors will continue to

advance those artists that fit their preferred

‘trendy style’’ of the month and advise their

visitors who are the ‘ones to watch out for,

because next month they will be discounts

galore on offer, perhaps?

Thus employing the ‘bugger the Artist’- stack em high and give big discounts - if you buy

today- type of non-ethical bribery ‘games they play’ – And all with additional discounts for

second time buyers, of course. Will high street galleries continue to be flooded by the hopeful

newbie painters who really don’t stand a chance, or will these hoards of artists who

think they can ‘stick a jpeg on line’ with a ‘really famous named’ overpopulated web site and

expect a sale? Better be prepared for disappointment and a very long wait, my dear deluded

artists friends. For you will be one of millions who reside in a virtual space that is almost

impossible to be seen, unless your art is featured on the front page.

Will the on-line - ‘paid private educators’ - who tell us - How to Sell Your Art On-Line, or ‘How

to paint like DeKooning’ (yes you really can view a You Tube on how to do that) ‘activity’ really

begin to make a difference for the artist financially, or is all that art business on line simply a

game that lines the pockets of the author who wrote this sort of bull shit ?

It seems to me, that the only way forward for painters today - is do what the Impressionists did

way back in the day before the internet existed - That is find a ’cheap’ building to rent space -

Hire it - Put your stuff on the Wall (with a few artists friends) - And throw caution to the wind,

then go mental posting on social media pushing the show and have’ a brilliant time at the

opening - I mean what’s the worst that can happen? You will loose some hard earned cash

and many hours of your time, possibly in a drunken stupor? But perhaps you will gain a

hell of a lot of self pride (and the mutual respect of your fellow painters, maybe) and get to

understand how a real artist (and a really great gallery owner) actually work bloody hard and

mostly for the love of Art and not for the love of money. There is nothing wrong in selling your

Art but surely it’s what and how that matters ...After all it’s just a (selling) game...isn’t it?
