SAATCHI ONLINE AT FORM 2008 28 FEBRUARY – 2 MARCH
Congratulations to all the Saatchi Online artists whose work was exhibited at the Saatchi Online stand at FORM 2008 which took place at Olympia in London last week. The response to the work of the artists in the exhibition – all London based – was extremely positive with many people saying the Saatchi Online stand was the strongest at the fair. Congratulations also to those artists who sold work at the fair – we sold 15 works in total by Maurizio Anzeri, Carla Busuttil, Alex Crocker, Poppy Jones, Mie Olise Kjaergaard, Sarah Douglas and Whitney McVeigh. We came very close to selling works by other artists and hope that the interested collectors will follow up with the artists directly. The work of these artists was sold free of any commission with the prices ranging from £400 to £3000. The artists who exhibited at FORM still have works available; if you are interested please contact the artists directly by going to their profile pages on Saatchi Online – the links are given below.
