Art revolutionary Nelson Diaz has just completed his sixth $1 auction on eBay. The latest installment of Self-Portrait with Pipe, 2008 sold for an appropriate $203.50. I know who bought it, and I’m happy that it wound up with a collector who will enjoy the work of art.
This sale, essentially, met Nelson’s two most important criteria. The painting had to sell for less than $300. And, it had to sell to someone who would enjoy the piece rather than view/treat it as a commodity. This buyer addresses both.
This week, Diaz is stepping up the pace a bit. He has put three paintings up on eBay, all with the starting bid of $1. After this week, there will only be one chance left to purchase a Nelson Diaz original from this series. I’m not pitching, just stating fact.
Here are the latest from Nelson, with links to help you participate in this new movement. For a change, art is defining history rather than merely recording it!
