…or “How to become a millionaire in only 20 paintings” I’ve made a bet with my son Joachim (https://www.wessmark.art/) about who can first become a millionaire from his art. Whoever wins gets a crate of beer from the loser.
I have now made a painting of 1 SEK and the painting will costs 1 SEK. (9,5 SEK = $1) When I have sold that painting I own 2 SEK that I will paint on my next painting, which will cost 2 SEK. When I have sold that painting I own 4 SEK that I will paint on my next painting, which will cost 4 SEK. When I have sold that painting…. and so on I will dubble the price (and the amount of money depictured in the painting) for every painting. When I have sold the 20 th paintings I am a millionaire and have won the bet.
If you are interested in being part of this project and own one of the paintings in the series, please e-mail me at email@example.com and reserve one of the available paintings.
Hej. Nu närmar det sig min utställning “I can’t believe it’s a painting” hos Galleri Scandinavia på Berzeliigatan 14 i Göteborg. Mellan den 15 – 29 november visar jag ett flertal nya målningar tillsammans med några gamla godingar från tidigare år. Dessutom ett par överraskningar i en helt ny stil… Både original och reproduktioner finns att välja på för den som kommer att tänka på att det faktiskt snart är dags att köpa julklappar. Här finns lite mer info om var galleriet ligger och när det är öppet: https://johanneswessmark.se/ Välkomna!
For the moment I am working on a small (12″x12″ – 30×30 cm) painting of a Lincoln Continental. I will bring it to Arvika on sunday for the car meet Rule Britannia at Arvika Fordonsmuseum.
More is happening…
I am invited to exhibit at Ekerum Konsthall on Öland next summer. Very proud about this!
Moreover I am also starting a coorperation with Gallery Scandinavia in Stockholm this fall. Looking forward to be seen more in sweden again 🙂
Hi. It has been quite a while so here are some updates.
A couple of weeks ago I installed nine BIG prints at a the local spa hotel Selma Spa.
They will be hanging for the rest of the year and I hope it will lead to some extra visitors here in my studio.
Here is an article in the newspaper (in swedish)
I have been painting cars this winter and spring and it really is satisfying. I especially like the older classic ones. For the moment I have a Volvo P1800 on the easel. You can see more about this at the section CARS. Aug 5 I will have my first car exhibition at Arvika Car Museum.
The new art gallery Riviera Gallery in Cannes, Spain opened recently. They have two of my paintings and a few prints.
For a period of time I will do commissioned work. If you would like me to paint or draw something for you, read about it HERE I did this drawing just to show what level of realism and style you can expect if you order a pencil drawing. Please e-mail me at brev@johannes wessmark.se if you have any questions.
