Layaway Days: Art collecting on a Budget
Dutch artist Sjaak Kooij has a beautiful painting titled 'New born' available for purchase on Saatchi Art. The acrylic painting depicts a masked man, protecting a young albatross, shedding light on the issues of environmentalism and pollution. In Kooij, I am reminded of fellow Dutch artists Joram Roukes and Collin van der Sluijs, and British artist Will Barras. However, Kooij's work is uniquely his own. The piece is listed for $2k, but there is an area where offers can be submitted. I would implore collectors to search for more images of Kooij's work, as there are several beautiful pieces available to view on the internet.
Art isn't purchased at big-box stores. This blog is for collectors like me, who collect on a budget.
