I'm Bo Sigvardson, professional artist, and owner of the international Gallery Sigvardson in Denmark. I found your art on the Internet, therefore I ask if you wish to exhibit your art in my gallery. Redbubble found so duno

ty Nand Smile I don't want to be a twit hehe.

Ty Ralf saw the web, the guy was nice he sent me his phone number full addy etc before the website, but I am a bit dubious about it all :P I don't even know if I want to exibit my stuff, but would like to know if it is genuine and a good rep company.

Huggles and ty

what I understood so far is, that he runs a steady exhibition of better known artists and also offers exhibition room for lesser known artists.
seems you have to pay for getting access to this. as this seems to make
a nice income for him, he prolly is looking worldwide for artists mentioned
in the net.

Aye he gets them from red bubble mostly.......... and Fine Art america, all the galleries charge though admin fees drink etc and so on, sigh nothing for free these days ..... even the Baltic now charges, ahh a gallery for the people (If they can afford it) ha.

Not going to bother with it but was curious.

aye, i can confirm what ralph says, that is what ive come up with too=)
(and sry for the lateness, wasnt at home all day yesterday)

basicly , he wants some buisness, but does not want to risc his own money. what u want from a gallery is them telling u ur talented, (wich u definately are, dont get me wrong) and that they want to set up an exebition that THEY pay set up for etc. not that u pay for their services and basicly get nada from it, but fees rendered to him.

secondly he is as i suspected icelandic, and u know the buisness rep they have atm. dont go for him is my advice, wait for somene legit, no matter what he will make money off u, but u may not sell anything. and his fee for more or less letting u set up everything and paying for it, letting u have up to 15 m2 to hang stuff on, but he doesn guarantee any sales, and t akes an exorbitant price of 20% of ur sales for it sounds dodgy to me at best.

thridly if he was legit he would pay for the whole shebang, and feel honored to! and he would do all the payments, untill u start making money, not this backwards thing, sounds scammy to me.

Ty all Smile hugely appreciated, I knew all the ins and outs I read the website, but it was more a gut feeling that something was not 100% or I would have jumped at shads offer to fund me ...... it's a lot of cash, what I can make out these small galleries need you at the least to do 40 images thats a lot of money to get them printed and a lot more risk in that quantity, they sell good enough on RedBubble and Zazzle and Cards on GCU And Zazzle without me worrying about shipping them all over the place. It costs me roughly 70 for one of my own canvus hung imagine 40 of that then going poof I would be beside myself. Oddly when I got the email instead of illating me it depresse me haha don't ask me why I have no clue.
