Man Bartlett, ‘Tips For Instagrammers Who Want More Likes (After Baldessari)’, 2014, Bert Green Fine Art

Based on the work by John Baldessari “Tips for Artists Who Want to Sell”, this painting is an updated version of the idea. Baldessari hired sign painters, commonly available at that time for hand lettered needs, and used found text.

Man Bartlett brought this work into the present time by using text that provides tips to Instagram users, and hired Chinese art painters over the internet to execute the actual work.

This piece is unframed and is designed to be hung that way, attached to the wall using archival blue tape
