I have no idea what's come over me recently, but I've started to take a keen interest in investing in other people's art work and hanging it on my walls - as if you're meant to do anything else with it.
I guess it started with winning Brandi Milne's "pair of twos" - I was elated to have in my possession lovely work by someone other than myself... errr did that sound vain? It really wasn't meant like that... oh hell, you know what I mean!
So, my recent purchases are these prints from tattoo artist RabbitAbby's Etsy shop...
They are reproductions of her flash inspired pen and watercolours - just gorgeous. She's an amazing artist and an incredible tattooist, go check out her site and be in awe at how good she is after what is considered a pretty short time in the industry.
Oh yeh, and I wish I never joined Etsy - I want to buy everything, and I mean EVERYTHING on there!!
Next up is this exquisite and wonderfully dark, but colorfully ironic piece from Ana Bagayan entitled Prey.
It made me laugh so hard when I saw it, I thought "Hell yeh!! That's it, you go mousey!" - me and my intellectual thoughts! I guess that's the whole idea about art - whatever the viewer makes of it, right?!
Ana's site is a feast for the eyes, check out and follow her blog too, I do.
Are you an artist that has a fetish for other people's art? If so, I wanna know about it.
