Countless artists work alone in their studios. Many have carved out room in their homes, others have converted garages or sheds or have taken the leap to rent a studio space. Some work in art lofts where they have lots of artists as neighbors. But for most, it is a solo work environment. While this provides the space to paint without interruption, creative solitude can sometimes leave the artist feeling uninspired. Some artists prefer to pursue to their visions in solitary, while others flourish and grow creatively with the feedback and inspiration of fellow creatives.
Despite the need for artists and creatives to share ideas, trends or techniques, in the art world it has been considered taboo for an outsider to “tweak” an artist’s creation. Yet in all other art fields – dance, music, writing – collaborating and editing are standard practice and serve to help the artist meet their full potential within their art form.
When selecting artists for representation we look for those who welcome outside collaboration and idea exchange during the creative process. Our years of working with clients in the décor market have given us valuable insights on color palettes and image trends that can elevate an artwork into a more universal and desirable place in the art market.
Here are a few recent examples of artworks that resulted from our creative collaboration directly with the artist:
For our artists, creative feedback and suggestions informed by our décor market trend knowledge is invaluable and often contributes a great deal to the sales success of their imagery.
