The reason why we launched Blink Art three years ago was so that interior designers and art consultants could have a way to directly reach out to artists both online and in print. Whenever we hear from artists that Blink Art is working for them, we are over the moon. It tells us three things:
- Blink Art works!
- Our artists and their works are desirable and in demand!
- Designers are paying attention to Blink Art Artists!
So when we heard from our Blink Art Artist, Hunter Brown, just days after the arrival of the 2017 Blink Art Resource, we just had to share Hunter’s success story with you!
The 2017 Blink Art is out and in the hands of over 50,000 art buyers!
Hunter Brown is new to Blink Art. When our Artist Relationship Director, Chelsea Tucker, reached out to him last year, he hadn’t heard of Blink Art and was cautious to sign up, but soon changed his mind after looking at the book. “When I was first contacted by Blink about the opportunity to showcase my work in their annual publication I was a little skeptical,” Hunter says. “But after doing a little research I quickly recognized several of the artists in the publication from the previous year. This was probably the key factor that lead me to give Blink a try.”
And Hunter is glad he did. Just last week he received two inquiries: an internationally recognized curatorial group called as well as a major New Jersey interior designer firm after both saw his work in the Blink Art Resource during its launch at the New York Art Expo a few weeks ago.
“Because they saw my work in Blink, I'm currently working with the curatorial group on several projects including a large sculpture installation for an apartment building in Indianapolis. I will be flying to meet with the client in the upcoming week,” Hunter says. And after speaking to the interior designer, who initially wanted one piece after seeing him in Blink, Hunter says, “One piece turned into three--I sold two smaller pieces for the interior of the home and closed on a large commission piece for the exterior.”

But, that’s not all! The inquiries are still coming in. This week he received another request from a design firm out of Dallas, who JUST received the book last week. Needless to say, Hunter is pleased with the results of showcasing his work with Blink. “It has already lead to several great opportunities in such a short period of time.”
But, Hunter has one regret: “My one regret is that I only did a one-page ad rather than two in the publication. Blink has already proven to be a great platform for exposure. I'm excited to see what is to come. I will definitely continue to work with Blink in the future.”
The Quarry Concept
All told, Hunter’s sales in the past couple of weeks have totaled $18,000. (He sold the Axis, Paleo I, and Paleo II to the client in Jersey. And he is making a new edition of Paleo I currently because the first edition is installed in Athens, GA. The Quarry Concept and Water Feature are images of a few schematic concepts presented to the client in Indiana.)
All we have to say is: Wow! And congratulations, Hunter Brown! And here’s to you and your, success! This is why we launched Blink Art and why we will continue to do publish it for years to come!
