“An artwork isn´t really the same thing as a car. It is called art when someone puts their energy into it," Lenka Sýkorová explains the reason why works of art shouldn´t be considered solely as an investment opportunity.
“Every day we are to a great extent surrounded by homogeneous areas with sharp, unfriendly edges. Art can nicely balance out this visual experience for us."
“Today's art world is a huge bubble in which you won´t succeed alone if you truly wish to grow and attract new collectors,” says Czech contemporary artist Hynek Martinec, who is represented by London based gallery Parafin.
“The value of this piece lies in its use of six colours, a number which is not easy to print as each shade needs to be applied separately. The more colours you use, the higher the risk that the design won´t fit correctly on the paper.”
“There is no tool between me and the material I use. I choose it with my hands. I shape it with my hands. My hands transmit my energy to it.”
