A CRATE OF BEER

…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 brev@johanneswessmark.se and reserve one of the available paintings.

Konstutställning

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:

“Brothers in arms” är en av de helt nya målningarna till utställningen.

Update

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.IMG_0728

The new art gallery Riviera Gallery in Cannes, Spain opened recently. They have two of my paintings and a few prints.
