Chinese art

Postby momopi » Fri Jul 09, 2010 3:55 pm

I meet a guy who ran an art gallery in Laguna Beach, he's selling art from China:
http://www.mandarinfineart.com/

They have a tea room and will be doing a Tea Ceremony demonstration on July 18th (RSVP, $25/head), if anyone is interested.


There are many talented (undiscovered) Chinese artists and their works are relatively inexpensive to purchase (or license for reproduction), and resale at higher price in the US.

The same applies to many other places in the world. You can visit local art colleges, meet artists, look at their work, and see if any would sell in the US (or Europe or elsewhere).

Wow nice. Can you sell stuff like that from Ebay, after purchasing it for cheaper abroad?

Btw, Momopi, I asked you a similar question in this thread. Did you get it?

If you want to sell the art pieces for $25,000 (plus limited prints for $800 each), you need to have it displayed at a gallery in places like Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, etc. I'm sure there's better locations but I'm only familiar with South OC market. If you step down to Sawdust Festival, then you can only charge a few thousand for the original, and $30 to $300 for prints (depending on size). The value of art is completely subjective and ranges from worthless to priceless, depending on the customer.

I have no experience whatsoever with selling art on ebay. But as a general suggestion, I'd recommend spending some time searching existing ebay art listings and see what sells and for how much. If you're going to work for $, don't under-value yourself and go for the big bucks. Where possible, it's better to sell 1 x $5,000 painting than to sell 500 x $10 prints. It's your time, so use it wisely.

Chinese art galleries is just wonderful, I usually purchase them for my personal collection. I also like Aboriginal Art that is very unique and beautiful, how many of you like that? Can I buy art pieces at some fewer prices?

These Art images are really nice and attractive. These show the best and unique collections of Art. I appreciate you for this work. Chinese Art Galleries are the most famous tourist places there. I will try to go there in the future with my nephews. They really love Art Work.
