Undiscovered Gold

Corn Syrup
There is definitely a trick to selling your art. First you must create amazing images. Then you must find a way to get your work to the people. That used to require a gallery or other retail location exhibiting your work. Now artists are lucky enough to be able to find their audience online directly.

Vantage Point
What does this have to do with my choice this week? Well, here is an amazing young artist fresh out of school who has already found at least one fan in me.

Elon Sharton Bierig has a great future. He considers himself a surrealist, taking realistic imagery and bringing it into a conceptual space. Of course what caught my eye was his series of hands. Anyone who is familiar with my work will know that is a bit of an obsession of mine, though my hands are nothing like the tangle of fingers he has chosen to portray.

He has priced his work to sell. If you are shopping for dramatic pieces for your home, this is the place to find them. All the work in his shop is oil in various sizes ranging from 9"x12" to 42"x18". He ships from his home in the Bay Area of California to everywhere.
Dexterous Growth

Outside of his etsy shop, you can see his portfolio on his official website. You can find him talking about his art on twitter and facebook as well.
