October saw the launch of a network of artists and photographers selling their work through the No More Human website. Born out of a desire to offer limited edition works of art at affordable prices and a reaction to the plethora of mass produced ‘art’ so freely available online, the concept needed just a name to encapsulate an ethos.
This was supplied by a quote from the late Maya Angelou, American author, poet and civil rights activist:
“Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin – find some beautiful art and admire it, and realise that that was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less.”
To date the concept has 10 contributors, with more in discussion and at the planning stage. Artists, photographers, print makers, all with a passion for what they do and a desire for their work to be seen, owned and enjoyed. In a mass- produced world there is intrinsic and practical value in limiting supply. Each work for sale on the No More Human website is strictly limited to 100 editions, with each edition accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate of provenance from the artist.
Purchasers are actively encouraged to communicate directly with the artist and, it is hoped, will move on to buying original work rather than one of a limited edition.
Entering into the limited edition art-world is through an affordable route, with prints available from £105. Art which will provide those moments of pleasure, with the assurance that there are not another thousand walls with the same image wherever in the world that may be. And art which will grow in value as the reputation of the artist grows.
In addition to prints, No More Human has a range of books through to greetings cards. Again the two rules are high quality and limited edition. The watchwords are affordable entry into the world of limited edition art.
No More Human are welcoming artists, print makers, photographers and designers into the community, creating an opportunity to sell works through a curated collection which will reflect the words of Maya Angelou: “Find some beautiful art and admire it.”
