August 1st - 10th, 2012 artist Ted Mikulski gave away over 1,000 pieces of original art to unsuspecting people in NYC. Ted is a professional artist represented by the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery.
"Don't Be Afraid, It's Only Art" is a film that reflects on topics we face in the modern art industry, which brings up the question "how do emerging artists find innovative ways to engage with the community?" Ted has revealed to us that though the industry has become saturated with artists, there are many ways to engage people in one's artwork; through social-media as well as face-to-face interaction and of course, giving away art for free.
