IBANART – Finding Signature

Most artists have a signature painting style and don’t even know it. The key is to uncover it and use it to bring in sales and notoriety for the artist.

A signature painting style makes an artist stand out from the crowd. This can bring the artist more sells, a following and maybe even fame.

For example, when someone says “Picasso” most people think of brightly colored cubist paintings of the human form. This was Picasso’s style. It was consistent throughout most of his painting career, so collectors and art enthusiasts can identify his style easily. When a person thinks of a Picasso painting, they know what the painting will be like without even looking at it. So was, Van Gogh for his messy stokes, and the living realist legend Iman Maleki for his smooth and calm stokes that creates a painting which portray serenity.

Uncovering the unique qualities of a painter’s abilities can lead to what marketer’s call “branding.” Branding is creating a product that people can easily identify.

Essentially, if an artist can figure out what makes their artwork special and consciously implements it into every piece they do, people will be able to identify the artist’s painting without looking at the signature. Collectors will clamor for more paintings because they know they will be getting a consistent type of artwork from the artist.

So far, I haven’t have mine.

I love realism. Portrait of Borneo is my main subject of painting, with a guidence from my senior in realm Mr Chieng, this is the 1st try of combining Realism and Abstract. So I guess, its was the beginning of the journey to find my signature. 🙂

Nyabur


Mayuh endar penyaru ba orang ke biak enti duku Ilang tauka Nyabur disebut.

Antara bida ke besai tau dibanding ka kitai entara ilang enggau nyabur, ilang mata ia juring sereta pandak agi. Nyabur mata ia chundur, sema ke jako baka mata pedang samurai jipun, ia panjai sereta ribat agi ditangkin.

Ditu aku deka nusoi enggau ngelansa pasal duku Nyabur dulu. Duku Nyabur bisi dua
bansa, siti dikumbai Nyabur Pesaka lalu siti Nyabur dikena ngayau. Nyadi
duku Nyabur pesaka tu digaga lalu diyas enggau naka pemanah. Iya semina
ditangkin lebuh mindah nemuai ngabang enggau maya bisi pengerami ke bukai. Kelimpah ari nya iya endang disimpan, dikait ba tiang tengah bilik, ba dinding tempuan dalam bilik semak pintu enggau ba dinding semak pintu bilik dapur beserimbai enggau
terabai, nyadi ke penabat enti bisi munsuh temu datai nyerang, iya senang sereta
jampat dijapai.

Duku Nyabur dikena ngayau, gamal iya rumpas sereta nadai diyas. Laban enti iya diyas, iya ribat dibai. Kelimpah dikena ngayau iya mega ditangkin mindah kiba-kanan, nurun mansai, kumai, ngembuah, mandi enggau semua pengawa ditanah. Tang iya UKAI dikena gawa, semina dikena nyendia nyaga diri enti munsuh nyerang.

Arapka saritu bala kitai ke agi biak enda kelalu balat lelang ati limpang penemu ngumbai duku pesaka nya dikena ngayau. Duku Nyabur ba gambar ditu nya duku pesaka, ulu iya digaga ari urat kayu langir lalu dikawit ngena seraput upih aping. Utai dikumbai butuh kunding nya udah patah laban besi betegar.

Pia mega ngepan ke dikena orang nurun ngayau laban sekeda cherita ke ditulis orang selamatu ngepan dikena ngayau nyau baka ngepan kena nurun ngabang. Nganti udah bisi kenang ari aya Rintai Edmond ke dudi ari ila, pengudah ia nusoi ke bida ngepan bansa kitai nurun ngayau sereta nurun ngabang, aku deka ngelakar ia ba kertas, ngambi ke terang agi dipeda bala pembaca.

Penudi sekali, aku meri besai terima kasih ngagai aya Rintai Edmond laban enti nadai tegal penemu ka dikunsi ke ia, nadai gak utai ke ditusoi sereta disara kitai baka ke kali tu.
