Where is the Art?


Please read…



Hello, I am an Artist and this is my website.

There is no gallery here. In fact there are as far as I know, currently no images of my visual Art anywhere on the internet…


Never the less… on this page people can still buy my Artwork, with one slightly problematic complication… you will need to trust me and pay fully for the work, in advance without seeing it, until it arrives. i.e. Letting me choose it for you.

I promise you will be truly happy. I give my word I am going to send you to send you a large and quite possibly life alteringly beautiful Artwork for your home or office.

That is a great deal of trust I am asking of you, my work is not cheap. But it will be worth it.


That’s basically all, so if you are “in”, please go to the bottom of this page, buying is easy, just 3 steps:


1) Send this Artist full payment – $125,000

2) Please also describe a recent vivid dream or daydream you have had.

3) The address where your Artwork is to be delivered.

And thank you for the trust…

If you are still reading this and did not just pay me; you may well be thinking? “OK..it’s the crazy internet, this is all definitely some kind of trick or serious online fraud or very ”

Well…No! it’s not. Today you met an Artist via the internet who is interested in you and not just your money handed over in a gallery, I want you to be a part of this project, the creation and making of your Artwork.

So the question: Why?

The short answer is you can be part of something that will make a difference to us both, and ultimately have something just for you, from me.

This Art is trying to find you, surprise you and change your perspective. But, only if you can trust in yourself, and trust this Artist. Do this and you will be rewarded with more than just a work of Art.

I am Angelo Valentino, an artist. I have chosen to sell my best ever work (thus far) only in this unique and not very efficient way. That is not because this work is failing to impress, or no gallery wants my commission it is exactly the opposite. These new works are deeply powerful, they change people. My current project, just took a decade to complete, this Art is very real, large, whole wall covering, a framed image that you and the people you show it to will stand in front of and be… awe struck. I do not think you would have read this far if you did not have “a feeling” of some sort that there is more to me than these words.

Let’s be truthful for a moment: Even the idea of buying a valuable Artwork on the internet without ever seeing it, is a risky excitement ordinary people would’t even dream of? Almost anyone with an ounce of common sense will tell you that you are making a mistake.. .

Do not listen to them, ordinary and common sense people have so often held you back from the most important, vivid and stranger things in life.

Humans are programmed to distrust, we suspect each other and most people even distrust themselves… This site is based my “uniquely stupid” concept that there exist a few people that trust in their own higher senses enough to buy a great Artwork on little more than a feeling.

It’s embarrassing to explain in writing how big a step up in trust I am asking; but if you get an Artwork today, you will get something of true importance to you and others.

Your feelings do not lie to you, but in the past you probably ignored your instincts and stayed fairly safe when you bought stuff, even Art. Today I hope you are about to let your deeper sense help you make a leap of faith and buy an Artwork that will change things and even change people.

On this page among the 136 billion others on the internet, you can discover your ability to trust your own intuition, intelligent curiosity and natural instinct: To know when you have come across something of beauty and value.

The price is fair, my work has been increasing and some people. say my current project will 10X my values, and if you will buy for this reason, that is OK. But if investment is the only reason why you have come, maybe leave these works for others? I am only going to do this for a limited time. Maybe you should hedge on one or two Banksy or Hirst prints for that amount, pick a cool well known one and you should be able to sell it fast when the stock market resets.


Here is something about my Art and why you should buy it here and now, with your uncommon sense intact.

About my recent works:

“On seeing his work I now totally get it. That any copy of these is seen before the achingly beautiful originals would spoil an opportunity to feel something real, for me it was a wave of emotion, of inner Joy.”

Jane Ballentine – Ballentine Collection USA

“There is something intense locked into these pictures.”

Eleanor Golden – Chateau la Faux, Pont Du Gard, France.

“Standing in front of the large imposing images, is an authentic experience. These days art is rarely if ever this affecting and this dare I say it, compelling.”

Matthew Steeples – The Steeple Times. London

“I could not speak, I felt these photographs touch my soul.”

Usher Raymond

“One of today’s most important hero artists, working intentionally in near anonymity”

Stanton – Arts Review

Public:

“I would sell my soul and own one of these”

“Listen to me, I know a thing or two about art, if these are not selling for $1.5m in a couple of years for the injustice I will burn down the Louvre, the Tate and the MET”

“The most beautiful single thing I have seen in my life”

Modern life: Technology has given us a thousand forms of irresistible instant gratification and unrelenting distraction from self awareness. Sometimes it takes a slight disruption, to make us recall a promise we all make to ourselves and break immediately: To have only genuine people and good things around us, things that bring value and meaning, not more expensive noise and pretty trash. I today, can give that to you, but you are going to have to TRUST my quiet voice on the internet, one who asks you to make that trust real, $125,000 real.

There is an absence of my Art everywhere on the internet, this is very deliberate: This is unusual as I have been making Art since before internet Art started, I wholeheartedly welcomed the digital age and use technology with no issue… but I have some strong reasons to keep my Artwork exclusively in real-life only. At the beginning it was to stop people copying my original works and maintain my exclusivity, but there was and is another more personal reason; A screen is not the right place to first see great works of Art. I used to try to have a small real life exhibition every few years and show works the old fashioned way: fancy locations, nice invitations, people come, some people like, enough buy. When the internet started as an Artist I saw the web as a wonderful canvas for new types of Art, but not as a good gallery for great works, so I did something, that is unique: I wrote this and sent it to everyone who had collected or wanted to display any of my works:

“I kindly ask that all collectors, galleries and museums that are in possession of my signed artworks NOT to EVER show, make or reproduce any copies or images of said works online, on their websites or on any social media, even in an effort to help expand awareness in me or my Art.”

Sticking to my principles means that selling my Art is not at all easy and to some people I am a self enchanted ghost: nothing shown on the internet = Art/Artist not exist… I don’t need my work to join the streaming petabytes of humanity’s constant immaterial noise; people’s pets, food, and flexing, slowly obscuring all light from within. The work I will send you took a decade to craft and it was not so people could swipe and forget. It was a journey, accross time and space, and has resulted in you being here now to read this about the picture I will send you:

These new works are answers to life’s imperfect human questions. In part that’s why I ask you for your dream.

Right now my Artwork can only be bought in this unique way, it will belong to a few self selecting and brave people. Please do something many would find incredible and be a part of this amazing journey. I trust this Art will find a way though to you.



Artist’s Statement About Recent Work.


“Making this latest collection of 38 photographic works consumed nearly ten years, it was exciting to start, but to take it to “perfection” was the hardest thing I have ever finished.

To make this thing that can be called Art, beyond just a beautiful visual account of human condition, needed a wholly different process: to completely obfuscate of all the cotton, hay and rags of life, and to look clear heartedly inward and own the truth of one’s time, to exclude repetitions, excise vanities, cut away sentiments, and pull a distilled insight out of meaning, so as to be relevant to others.

Each step a slowmotion battle against an army of monsters, common distractions and warm jealousy.

All this to reach a place where Art has power beyond any sorcery of matter or new arrangement of old words.

If done right, something life altering can happen when enough emotion, experience and human honesty are concentrated at one time and in one object. In that moment something strikes deep inside and the meanings of common words can be changed, and things ugly written are reset, anything can be forgiven, a life transformed.”
