Buying Art Through an Artist’s Blog – artmarketblog.com

Buying art online is often made more difficult by the inability to interact with the artist and experience their perosnality, practices and procedures. For me one of the most interesting and exciting aspects of being involved in art is going beyond the artwork it’s self and getting to know the personality of the artist, their methods, influences and aims. I always end up feeling more passionate and excited about art after I have spent time talking to an artist or hearing an artist talk about their work especially when the artist shows passion for their work. One way of experiencing the process of the creation of fine art without leaving your computer is through artist’s blogs. Artist’s blogs are also a great way to buy art as well because you can purchase from the artist directly and get to see a wide range of works. I have listed a few of my favourite artist blogs below for you to browse, hope you enjoy!!!
