Does Buy Some Damn Art accept artist submissions?
Yes. If you've spent time on the site and feel that your work is a good fit for Buy Some Damn Art by all means please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org. I love hearing from artists.*
* However, If your work is very different stylistically or thematically than what you see on Buy Some Damn Art then please think twice before submitting your work. I receive a lot of submissions (for very few open spaces) and take the time to look through each one.
How can I submit my work for review?
The best way to submit your work is to send an email to email@example.com with a link to your portfolio and a quick intro. If you don't have a website you can attach 3-5 images of your work.
What do you looking for?
My short answer is that (like pornography) "I know it when I see it."
The longer answer is that I look for art that is original, smart, timeless, humble, quirky and pretty. I seek out artists who are supremely thoughtful and talented but don't take themselves too seriously. Who the artist is is almost as important as what their art looks like. I am particularly drawn to work that is influenced by folk art and modern and vintage illustration as well as to work in self-taught styles.
