Crowdsourcing is a collaborative process. An artwork is created by outsourcing its formation to willing participants using networked communication. A task is set and a series of instructions are issued. This often results in people rebelling against the set task and its instructions. This desire to disrupt is part of the creativity and energy of a crowdsourced art work.
At The Picturalist, we’re eager to find Artists That Sell with The Picturalist and to collaborate with them. We select works by emerging artists. Our curators are not just collectors—they are patrons. They support and judge up-and-coming artists based on artistic merit and emotional appeal. This patronage demands the vision and spirit of discovery we encourage at The Picturalist. We recognize artists for their passion and originality. And when their work is appreciated by our collectors, we reward them.
We encourage you to first review our website, and then to submit a sampler of your work. If your creations align with our artistic direction, we will contact you. We will then explain our philosophy, our goals for future collections, and our quality standards, as well as the terms of a fruitful contract with you.
Once we sign an agreement with you, we will contact you to define the following:
Certain artists appreciate direction in order to create their best work. Others prefer to create independently. The Picturalist is happy to work with you in your chosen working style.
Feel free to work under your real name or under a pseudonym—your choice. If you choose to submit a lot of work at once and then nothing for a while, we adapt to your rhythm.
Among other benefits, The Picturalist offers you a monthly sales report. This report highlights your best sellers, and gives you real time feedback on what your clients appreciate most about your art.
