An Artist's Holy Grail...

[caption id="attachment_16420" align="alignleft" width="300"]artist-desk-front-640x466-510x466 Steurbaut's original oak cartoonist's desk[/caption] Communicating through visual art is older than written communication, gives written word a tangible ally and channels imagination - anyone who dislikes art is abandoning any form of visual communication from water-colours and etchings through to sculpture, cartoons and pop art. Art is a part of human existence and as such there are millions of people who embrace art and work in the visual arts sector. According to Cultural Enterprise Office's webpage: "around 48,500 people work in the visual arts sector in the UK contributing over £333.5million to the economy (according to the Creative Blueprint Industry Statistics Reports, Visual Arts). The vast majority of these people are artists, while others work as dealers, curators, reviewers, studio providers and in visual arts education. Many visual arts professionals are self-employed or work in very small organisations". The field of 'art' is an ever expanding one, but the word 'art' still conjures up the stereotype of an artists in front of an easel or huddled over their grand drawing desk creating satirical comics for the likes of 'Punch' and there is a reason for this - many people still adore working in this traditional way. A great blog for seeing the spaces utilized by cartoonists and artists is 'Where They Draw'.  The difference between the paint filled studios, ink splattered desks and architect's easels is inspiring and in these places art is born.  If you work as an artist you may aspire to these spaces but inspiration for your living space also comes from interior design and the furniture you chose to surround you. One great piece of furniture that inspires and makes life easier for the artist is a cartoonist's desk. With a central flap which raises to a slope this type of desk allows you to work without breaking your back.  Popular throughout the industry, they are an investment that pays off. For the ultimate in inspiration furniture for your office or studio, Vintage Vibe is selling cartoonist Steurbaut's original oak cartoonist's desk.  This is an original 1930's Art Deco solid oak desk.  A truly versatile and inspiring desk where Steurbaut's cartoons were created - and it could be yours!
