Ulrich de BalbianI'm not sure what Nina means by the 'price tags are disgusting'? If attaching a visible price to a work or art, or prints, are meant, or if the prices themselves appear to be too high or too low? We can't escape the fact that in today's world everything comes with a price tag, including 'art objects'. And, few artists, if any, have control over the price of their work. Just have a look at the criteria employed to evaluate the price of a work of art, for example at Artprice.com. I wonder how many

Ulrich de BalbianI wonder ho many are aware that the top 500 contemporary artists are identified according to their sales during the last financial year. And, that roughly 400 of them are Chinese, as the art market has shifted from Europe and the US to China and Asia.

Jiri KobosThe bold language of Abstract Expressionism, some understand it and some don't, to some it is pure sound to others just noise, whichever it may be, it is just 'itself'. Congratulations to all the artists in this collection for their bravery.

Andrew BartonI LOVE abstract art. It is the foundation for all art. Although I produce figurative art myself, it is always done with the abstract principles in mind; form, composition, ornament, repetition, tone, colour, etc. So it always suprises me when I see some "abstract artists" who do not understand these principals.
