I am a SaatchiArt Artist.
That’s about all I can say (nice) about them.
I don’t like them (my opinion): they do not promote Photography or Photographers who only submit work as Prints.
● They promote original art and the artists who do original art, no matter how crappy the art is.
Here is one of my Art Photographs I have at Saatchiart, titled, “Cool Impressions”.
☆ In a fair and unbiased world, you would think that IF I did a Search for my artwork, Cool Impressions, that it would be the FIRST ARTWORK SHOWN in the Search Results (as long as there are NO other artworks with the same name)….Right!
NO. Absofuckinglutly Wrong!
There are NO other works in the Search Result with the same title!
1st page, my work, NOT there, AND NONE OF THE ARTWORKS IN THE SEARCH RESULTS ARE TITLED, “Cool Impressions” (as just emphasised)!
That’s Odd! No ambiguity there! Wow! I always thought that if you do a search for a Word or Title it should be the first to show in the Results! Nope! Not at Saatchiart! The Results of the Search that show up are ALL Original Paintings and the titles are nothing similar to “Cool Impressions”!
I looked as far as the 5th Page, (125 artworks), and my “Cool Impressions” does not even show up on the 5th Page. I have a stinking suspicion that I could go 10 or 29 pages and still not find it.
What a total crock of shit!
There is NO point in putting artwork (Photography) at a site that does not give one-good-god-damn about you or your work.
They, I’m sure, have their “darlings” who they promote-the-shit-out-of, but I’m pretty tired of these pretentious sites that basically f u c k over photographic artists who just want to be treated fairly, and to sell photography prints, not original works.
There’s other fish in the sea, so to speak, Saatchi.
They also claim that some of my work has no dimensions listed. Ah, wrong! The works they claimed have no dimensions, DO HAVE dimensions listed…LWTF?!? Works with no dimensions will be removed, they say.
Anyway, those are some thoughts I have on this grumpy day.
Ahhhhhhh…..Positive Nawfal…yeah……I can be Pissed if I want, so there!
Nevertheless, if you want to buy work from POSITIVEly-Pissed-Nawfal….
☆ But, IF you like my Art Photography and want to help me, and also Balance the Scales in Favor of the Photographic Arts, then Buy my Photographic Artworks, and go to my Imagekind Sales Gallery:
