Michael Auliso with Tribalmania.com recently posted an interview to his website that I thought was definitely worth sharing with the group. I believe he did the interview when he was in San Francisco for the Tribal Arts Show in February.
The Singer's collect various forms of Tribal art with a focus on Oceanic, but it's great to read about their passion and there are also photos of their collection as it's displayed in their home.
An excerpt from the interview that I enjoyed:
"When we started off collecting as a couple 8 to 10 years ago we had very limited funds. We bought very price sensitive things we could afford that were from a couple hundred bucks to a
couple thousand at most. That was a big stretch for us a decade ago. Over time, with the ability to earn a little bit more money, you're able to afford more expensive things, but more expensive doesn't necessarily make them better. Some of the things we bought a decade ago for a couple hundred bring us as just as much joy as something we've spent far more on. I think that is one of the things that is really great about going to the Tribal shows or visiting dealers websites is that you can see pieces, that are ,in the scheme of things, relatively inexpensive killer pieces of art that can bring great joy and pleasure to you"
I hope you'll enjoy the interview as much as I did, below is a direct link:
