Carlos Fentanes (CF): I really like the style of your gallery, is it fantasy or how do you call it?
Beinart Gallery (BG): Thank you
We generally call it surreal figurative
But that is not an official title for a movement
CF: Sorry about called it “fantasy”, I didn’t know how to name it maybe Visual Poetry is a closer description.
BG: No worries at all 😊
CF: I would like to see more of this art in museums and less Koons and Kaws.
BG: Ha! Me too!!
CF: What you show is the Hieronymus Bosh of our time.
BG: I love Bosch!
That’s it, a brief conversation about their art, I don’t even mention that I’m an artist too and that was not necessary, I learned new thing about this style and this fabulous gallery.
The Beinart Collective was founded in 2003 by Jon Beinart. Starting as an online gallery featuring Jon and a handful of other Australian artists, the Collective quickly grew into a network of hundreds of artists from every point of the globe.
I’m happy to meet galleries like this one, this is the effort of a collective with a big heart and faith in their work. My commentary about Koons and Kaws was totally honest: all this creative people are out of the spotlight because the money industry has took over museums and auction houses, but when I see the dedication and work behind this fantastic works of art I wonder what kind of art is going to survive in one hundred years.
In their website there’s a page about submissions and it’s a well organized site where you can easily find nice works of art at accessible prices, you can buy online and the prices are in your own currency.
