One thousand numbers = one thousand paintings. All beautifully painted on canvas (approx. 12 x 12 x 1.5). Each number is unique – the number and the demand define the price. An experiment of art & mathematics, on the web, the first of its kind. Paintings have been sold to the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and Portugal.
Find out which numbers are still available

I really don’t get why anyone would want to buy these, mainly because they are not going to be worth anything in the future, it’s a gimmick. I agree that part of the essence of being a good artist or designer is coming up with an original idea or concept…but the only interesting idea/concept I can see here is watching how many ppl will pay too much money for something that they think they should buy just because they think everyone else is buying it.

What a great concept! It reminds me of the 2000 Bricks project (www.2000bricks.com), which is also starting to get some buzz.

Maybe I’m too artistically jaded, but I have a hard time buying anything I could make myself.
Granted, it’s a nice idea, and I’m certainly not hating on the originator… more power to anyone who can convince this many people to pay money for an idea. I wouldn’t mind making a few grand off an idea.
But I don’t understand why anyone would want to buy one of these. Of course, that’s why I’m not buying one… because it’s not for me.
I suppose that’s one of the beauties of art.
