Auction #6 is down, Nelson Diaz keeps going

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!

The Saatchi Gallery Online, the internet presence for one of the most prestigious art galleries in the world, is holdingĀ a competition, with success determined by votes. I would love to influence this process. Julio Aguilera deserves to win because (1) he is a kick-ass artist, (2) he is a nice guy and (3) I have several of his pieces; his winning would make their value increase.

So, I’d appreciate it if you would vote for Saatchi and spread the word. Voting starts at 9 AM, so click here to vote eary and vote often!

This piece is “Geometric Mona,” a variation of Leonardo DaVinci’s “Mona Lisa,” painted in Aguilera’s signature geometric/cubist style. In fact, this is the review photo that Aguilera sent to The Saatchi Gallery to secure their interest in displaying his work on the website.

So, vote for Julio! He’s a great artist who deserves to move to the next level >>
