Someone who supported our young emerging artists that did not get pleasure not only from the work.
But also from the growth in investment.
And in any notoriety.
There are being garnished you know the Warhol did he attract -- -- dark matter any of these other web sites you just cannot believe the prices people are are paying 3040 million dollars for one piece of mark.
But you can get in on the arts scene.
At lower prices -- lower by learning who the emerging artists are so we wanted to bring you an opportunity.
A website -- battles dot com.
It is the battle of the emerging -- look at that actually that one's sexual liberty work reminds me a lot of the Warhol.

Married to a library and in a one bedroom rent stabilized New York City apartment.
They collected -- their whole married life -- -- on one salary and supported young artists big name Mark Clayton and ski in another street artist.
And eventually they they donated they never sold the work they could have sold one and got a Condo on park avenue.
They just donated to the national gallery 2000.
Works of contemporary arch an enormous collection that they in the movie you see how they haul it out of this one bedroom apartment they they said if it's not an act exhibit will never be able to get it back again.
What joy they took in getting to know young artists participating in their growth and having an opportunity to have a collection that is.
Do you encourage people on the web -- to get to know some of these artists and how do you find them.
First off we find artists through basically to -- calls -- search for.
Artists and at some pet owners.
And here -- in the US just searching for the best and brightest.
But then when it comes that's a collection and encouraging people to collect the artwork and so on.
You know laid back about it -- we don't try to force on people at this point now we're really just I think he's worked so we're looking out on the -- -- you can you can.
Were too if you notice the prices -- listed on these pieces.
What we're doing now is we're rebuilding our gallery are exhibitions etc.
so we had our first exhibition.
-- is our full collection two weeks ago.
And just showing the people who work in just getting them a little bit started was enough for us -- where -- safe.
We're based out of new York and worries so -- there is our facility that you have that people can comments he works out he had any time yeah.
You know there's a there's a gallery space and yet we have just three locations in the city that.
Are kind of like you know resident based.
You know kind of galleries.
That we just show where two people and we're not doing next commissioner one of our main events.
It looks like an Alex cat which is a very well known aren't yeah.
And house let's see bella -- she's pretty you.
This is well known -- -- in downtown -- -- -- are you doing photography and also some members Cindy -- you could pick one up for 5000 dollars and -- you better shell out five million.
How much you love this I love it coming why are you an artist just -- I am -- -- and myself.
And you know I.
This -- just gets me the most inspiring and amazing artists and you know individuals that you know when you've -- to me otherwise and you know I -- the best seat all this is that a pencil -- -- sexy black -- -- acrylic paint.
But -- -- a lot of mixed media some time so.
These -- went -- very clearly.
Mean I'm obviously passionate about -- because he's so many of these speak to you.
In these times of emotions -- people -- self.
Full of fear.
Or are just trying to find their way you're you're nodding but it right am I off on -- I think that you.
That these these works -- -- can do a lot for you but they also can be great investment.
What's your suggestion to someone that wants to learn more about our because once you dip your toe that.
You're at your end.
I mean honestly like just to learn more about our aegis.
Really just starts appreciating talk with people about it I mean you know conversation about our.
You know is a lot of times -- good positive change of topic of conversation.
And drinking leads to dislike you know finding out more about the person you're talking to anyway and more about yourself.
And you know and then in the end you know -- just.
It's it's uplifting for everyone so even if it's conversation where your opinions don't necessarily agree.
Think it's still in the end be like in an uplifting.
Experience would you encourage people also to pick up a paint -- our parents saw what they think they want you to be an artist.
Is it still something that you would encourage people to do present struggle like being an actor.
There's no guarantee well I mean you know there's.
Group of people like you -- on the Middle Ages going through like art students league picking up their Fredericks came missing.
Painting a picture in and you know that that I think is is amazing but what we're doing is the much younger version of that.
But you know artists that they're just grabbing they're paint brushes and hitting -- the town and spinning it clubs and venues.
And this is building up all over the place so that if you go to a restaurant he might be watching some of -- -- amazing piece instead of you know playing the piano.
I'm certainly intrigued by what you showed us today -- hope my panelists will also check out the website it's our -- battles yeah why battles.
Because it's actually a -- -- competition.
But we -- produces its platform for artists get on stage and -- at live.
In a competition where it's -- democratic process -- -- in the public actually chooses who wins.
