It has been a hectic few months of creating art in South Africa with lots and lots of changes. I know that it has been tough on all of us with all the Covid restrictions. My primary home is in Mauritius but for the past 6 months, there have been no direct flights to Mauritius from South Africa. Apparently, we have a super spreader of a Covid variant here in South Africa that is not wanted in Mauritius. So the borders remain closed.
I have a mission! I am an artist and I have collectors out there who love my work. Unfortunately, most are in Mauritius. So I had to start all over again here in South Africa. I am already receiving commissions and sales from our premises in Hartbeespoort but would love to reach more buyers in South Africa.
But we have decided to take away the international courier fee from our website and change the currency to Rand on the site. This makes the paintings much more affordable for South African buyers. So while we are in South Africa creating some great paintings I would strongly recommend that you click through to my website www.gerdusbronn.com and secure one of the great paintings before they are all sold out.
We will also post our items on bidorbuy.com to reach a larger audience.
We would love to have an established gallery sell our works but the current situation is changing and a lot of artists are doing direct marketing through social media and direct sales through a website like ours.
By marketing directly to the public you can talk to the artist and build up a relationship with the artist. I am just learning more about the value of this and would love to meet more of the collectors who own my art.
