I had Erin Hanson on today. She's a very interesting person and I've always been a big fan of her work. In fact, I represent her work. I don't get a lot because she has her own galleries, but I do get some great things occasionally.
She is a unique human being in many, many respects. She's not only extremely talented as an artist, but she has the same skill set when it comes to business and marketing. Some people might go, “well, you know, that's really not part of the art world,” but it's a critically important part of the art world.
You see, Erin is very driven. When you have somebody who's driven like she is, both as a creative and as a business person, it makes for somebody who's successful. Clearly, Erin is a successful individual, not only in the way that she paints but also in the way she's able to sell her artwork.
We also had a nice discussion towards the end on NFTs (non-fungible tokens) which is a new way of selling art and is going to be an important part of the art market in the future. There's just no doubt about it. Especially western, native, or contemporary western art. I don't think it's something the majority of people would understand just yet, but it's coming folks.
So it's a fun podcast for me because I love to talk about the business of art as well as just, you know, looking at art and talking to creative people. She understands the business of art and where e the market is heading.
(Sometime in the near future, I will be having guests on the podcast to talk about blockchain technology and non-fungible tokens, because the next generation is going to be buying more at more art on digital platforms than off of physical gallery walls. I know it's hard to believe, but it's true.)
