Donation 1 Dollar Painting

Thomas Himmel from Växjö, Sweden bought the “1 Dollar Painting” a while ago. After I reached out to him to ask to which charity the money should go to, he chose to donate the one dollar (at the time he bought the painting around SEK 7) to Green Peace. Since it wasn’t possible to donate one dollar only, I rounded the amount up a little and donated USD 5 instead.

Here is the email receipt that I received after doing the donation.

Thoughts about Art and Marketing

Some thoughts and questions that I asked myself were a part of the inspiration that resulted into Value Art.

Value Art by Matthias Kamann image

  • Why are certain art works so expensive?
  • Why do some people pay a lot of money for art?
  • Do artists consider commercial sales when they create an art work?
  • Where is the fine line between art work and a product? Or when does art become a product and vice versa?
  • Marketing and advertising can be really annoying. How can you market or praise a product without being too pushy?
  • What is it that creates a hype and makes people curious about something? Particularly on the web.
  • Actually I somethimes still don’t know whether I am a marketer who sells something that some might consider as art. Or am I a real artist? Or am I just someone who created some art?
  • And do I really have to find an answer to all these questions?

Created this little Vine video. It’s rather difficult to sum up the Value Art project in only six seconds. You can pause the video by clicking on it.
