Visual Storytelling on Instagram for Artists

Visual Storytelling on Instagram for Artists

Our means of storytelling has drastically changed of the last 1000 years. From telling your story around a fire with friends to literally sitting on a bus with your head down posting on Instagram. But is that considered storytelling? YES! People often forget that whether you like it or not, what you post on social media is telling your story. So why not use it to your advantage?

Introducing LeRiquiqui to The Arthouse Collective Family

Introducing LeRiquiqui to The Arthouse Collective Family

LeRiquiqui's artwork is bright and minimal and I'd almost say funky even though the word funky is really no longer funky. Her work is done by the method of Risograph which produces very similar results to that of screen printing and allows for fluorescent ink prints that cannot be replicated on screen or digital printing. Basically it's cool and it's really bright! 

Introducing Erin Green to The Arthouse Collective

Introducing Erin Green to The Arthouse Collective

Erin Green is an amazing artist and a lovely person. She’s been an absolute dream to work with so far and we couldn’t be more excited to officially release her as an Arthouse Collective artist.  Living in Brisbane and studying at QCA, Erin creates beautiful hand cut collages that represent native florals, recycled bottles and beetles. Her works are so unique and her ability to use colour so differently is what stood out to us when we first saw her work. Erin’s first piece for The Arthouse Collective will be released online for sale this Sunday! So let’s get to know a little bit about Erin…

Let's Talk About Social Media

There is no denying that the social network app has completely changed the art industry. Instagram allows artists to sell works themselves, nudging out the dealer while demystifying fine art and increasing accessibility; challenging what has long been seen as an industry shrouded in pretense and exclusivity.

How Do I Price My Work?!?

How Do I Price My Work?!?

The question on every emerging artist's mind... HOW DO I PRICE MY WORK?!?

I’ve asked the wonderful artists here at The Arthouse Collective to let me know their concerns and questions they have in their day to day life as an artist. It doesn’t surprise me, as an artist, that most are struggling with 'How do I price my work?!'. Every artist does and it’s especially hard to price your work when you’re the one creating it!!

Alex Ponting Talks to The Arthouse Collective

We were recently lucky enough to catch up with Alex Ponting from AP Design House in Woollahra, Sydney. 

Artwork is without a doubt one of the most important parts of interior design (according to me) so it made sense to talk to someone who really understood what art means within a space and where to find it. We also discuss the artwork trends for 2017 in the interior world and some of Alex’s best advice for emerging artist. 

Traditional vs Commercial Artists: Do the boundaries exist in 2017?

Traditional vs Commercial Artists: Do the boundaries exist in 2017?

I’ve heard the saying, ‘the difference between commercial and traditional artists is also the difference between starvation and survival. 

But is that a reasonable assumption in the year 2017? 

Let’s firstly look at what it means to be a commercial artist and a traditional artist.
