Collecting art sales | Happy People can change the World Courreges

Posted on November 06, 2013 by Kellyann Gilson Lyman

Great partnerships in art are often great design! I would love to see as the back drop to Courregges. I concur with their philosophy...happy can change the world!




I find it curious in the art world, the dialogue of where artists land. In the business of art, what is the dialogue & what is the game beyond talent, timing & scope? | has been producing art for exhibition, that speaks to art & design ethics & aesthetics. A rubric behind art & design that creates art + production = profit. Great art, speaks to great design. The movers & shakers in art profit in the game.

With a fascination with Andy Warhol's business model in art & design, he sold his photo shoots at $50,000 USD for 1- 60 x 60 silkscreen print, then 5 editions $5000 each. So as an artist, he created his value & annual income with one project. I love the idea of art value, so as to continue to create great art that engages the public positively. 

The Warhol Foundation earned over 300 million last year. The estate that keeps on giving is a fabulous business model in art to study & establish. My collection of appropriations of AWF Jackie O, are being collected & archived for editions, as per approval by the AWF. As the art continues to promote Andy Warhols business ethic & his art in the cultural eye. Salon in art is key.

4. statement for solo project: Art in motion in real time. 

Response to Koddrip's show: In the context of my work & relation to your group. Love this pondering in ones (spiritual) art practice. So what are you learning from the unconscious? 

Is your cup empty & open to learn & give compassionately to life? Is the vessel breathing & swimming in homeostasis! Here is fountain of creativity.

My sola show with creative concepts at go studio or white space. will display bodies of work large abstracts, medium & small paintings + positive youth vision print campaigns & sculptural play on words, all reflecting on aesthetics & ethics in art. There is a link in Koddrip's work & mine, to know thine self & shine each day!

My collections address heroes, seeing beauty in what you do, iconoculture | a world view on beauty. I produce large paintings as a backdrop for the fusion of art design fashion photography, technology & thought. Positive thought as a means to cultivate culture via the creative process. If through our art, one creatively problem solves in their daily lives, is not art impacting culture positively.

I see my art global in motion to NYC, Paris, London, Japan, China & Abu Dabai. I am very curious as to the dialogue & conversation around arts integration (Oui to art in all forms). If we artists cull a renaissance in all art....invite those of interest in your circles around the globe to dialogue with integrate the arts in motion.

of sculpters: Mark DiSuvero, 

Poets...Chitra Neogy, Beyonce

Musicians....jay z, rihanna,

Film makers, interested & producing art, james franco, etc. 

Perhaps the art dialogue grows via integration of thought.  What is art saying today? Is art a cultural equity? Who are the benefactors of this art? Will the youth learn from this quest for ethics & aesthetics in their day. What will their culture produce or create as a consequence of our cultural influences. Are we a culture of seekers & doers? Are we paying forward intrigue, discovery, inspiration & delight! Yes is my thought. Bonne Chance,
