The Dramatic Turn of Graffiti Art reaches new Heights with Artist Jose Parla

Artist José Parlá reaches new heights

CBS News September 6, 2015

A former street artist, José Parlá’s works are anything but Off The Wall. In fact, they can now be seen in many a high-profile location, including one of the very highest of all. Rita Braver reports:

It is one of the most symbolic buildings in the nation: the new One World Trade Center, rising resolutely after the devastation of September 11, 2001.

The art of José Parlá

And what was chosen to greet visitors as they enter? A mural — not about the attacks, but about moving forward. It’s a mural about resilience.

From the beginning, artist José Parlá says he knew it had to be a powerful piece: “It’s a mural about strength and unity. And I see it more about people coming together, like the diversity in New York City. So it celebrates New York.”

Why Wall Art Matters Most In Interior Design

Too often in interior design, we see wall art treated as an afterthought. It’s what gets dealt with last, long after the final coat of paint has dried on the walls and all of the furniture has been artfully arranged, if it gets dealt with at all.

But, we’re here to argue that by relegating wall art to the side lines, you’re missing out on an amazing design opportunity. When chosen thoughtfully, the right wall art can provide for the entire room. Dare we say it, but we think wall art matters most in interior design.

However, if you’re a little nervous to give wall art such a prominent role in your design plans, don’t worry. Use this post as a guide on how to accurately choose pieces that will mesh with your existing space and you will have a harmonious interior. By Tara Mastroeni

Why Art is Good for Entrepreneurs

Artists are the ultimate entrepreneurs. That’s why a trip to a museum is so inspiring for founders.

Who is more entrepreneurial than an artist?

They have new ideas. They meet resistance. They have to mobilize support. Half the time they don’t even know if they are going to succeed, and very few of them actually make it to the galleries of our major museums.

Million-dollar sales boost art loan industry

“Art lending business is booming”, according to the first comprehensive poll of the industry, conducted by the research firm Skate’s and due for publication on Tuesday, 4 August. The report calculates that art loans could account for more than $10bn in 2015, at least twice the 2011 level, and could grow to become a $100bn market.

Driving business is the growth of art sales at the top levels—where lenders feel confident that a work could retain most of its value over the longer term. Skate’s identifies the $1m-$5m and the over $20m ranges as “the most liquid art-market segments today”.

You can lose a lot of money with the wrong art buy — especially if you’re young, naive, and really, really rich.

According to Bloomberg, Citigroup is hoping to prevent such losses by teaching the heirs of its wealthiest bank customers how to invest in art. “You don’t have the birthright to the next generation’s wealth,” Citi Private Bank Managing Director Money Kanagasabapathy explained. “We want to continue to have the relationship with the family.”

Digital Artwork becomes tradeable and scarce on the Bitcoin block chain

Entrepreneur and artist Stephan Vogler wants to change the art world, and he is using Bitcoin to do just that in what’s considered by many to be the epicenter of contemporary art, Berlin, Germany.

Vogler’s novel block chain technology inspired license seeks to change how art is purchased and traded. By creating a system of rights to copyrighted works in digital form, Bitcoin can turn art from mere collector’s pieces to limited and tradable virtual goods.
