OneYearAuction.com – One Year Auctions
A very remarkable experimental website created by artist Rasa Levinskaite, OneYearAuction.com introduces a wholly new different type of online auctions. As the name if the site puts it, these are auctions that last one full year. No item that’s listed on the site is listed for less than that.
The site has been specifically created to let artists auction their paintings and other artwork in a way that lets people have a much better appreciation of what’s being sold.
If you visit the site right now, you’ll see some of Rasa’s paintings listed. These are from her “Elephant” series, and there’s one (Elephant Lady Gaga) that comes with a “Buy It Now” price of $1,000,000. You might be thinking that’s a lot of money for the work of what’s essentially an emerging artist. Yet, it must be pointed out that when it comes to the works of established artists, people are willing to pay as much as $100,000,000.
And that’s what’s so interesting about OneYearAuction.com, in the end. If “Elephant Lady Gaga” can sell for $1,000,000, then this site will prove that the way online art auctions are currently approached is insufficient. And it will stand as the new way for artists to sell their art on the Internet.
