"25 years is a long time when it comes to an art project. But here we are - 25 years after the beginning!
The first artmoney was created in 1997, and a lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then. I took some photos of some of the many articles, written about artmoney over the years and put them together for this collage, to form an impression of how much the project has filled in the media. And that's just a small part of what's been published in magazines, newspapers, books, radio and television. Artmoney contains many amazing stories. As many as it houses amazing artists, each with their own amazing narrative. It has been an absolutely fantastic journey for me to be part of artmoney from start to finish, and it has truly shaped my life and the choices I have made."
Lars Christian Kræmmer
Founder of Artmoney
So grateful to have discovered Lars & Artmoney
As an artist all my life I questioned the values of nature, of everything, developing a keen sense for the Arts & living a free life. Some folk have said you need courage yet for me it was simpler than that. I just never valued the idea of working for a living. No wonder then, that aged 60 & still an artist, that I choose at least to believe that life in actual fact lives itself & that I am crazy enough to see it, that in reality I don't have a choice, no courage necessary. I learnt from nature to accept change and let life be, precarious as that is, I'm willing to take the chance
Thank you Lars for creating artmoney.
See you in Denmark soon! I'll be staying in "Ibsens Hotel" in Copenhagen to make artmoney & of course to continue my usual paintings on newspapers. Till then
