Street artist Bambi uses our synthetic DNA Tags on her artworks

Street artist Bambi, whose works are displayed in the streets of London as well as the homes of celebrities such as Kanye West and Rihanna, now uses our authentication solution, beginning with her Lie Lie Land edition.

The original located in the Borough of Islington, this stencil depicts the famous dance move made by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in the award-winning movie La La Land. This political piece references the eyebrow-raising moment Theresa May and Donald Trump held hands at a press appearance in Washington.

Her tagged silkscreen prints are now available at Joseph Fine Art and the Endangered Editions websites, all accompanied by our Certificates of Authenticity and Provenance Record.

According to Bambi, “Tagsmart is a great way for me to ensure that my work remains mine, as buyers can trace its history and establish with absolute certainty its authenticity. Their triple lock system assures me that my prints and paintings are secure forever.”

#TagsmartTips for TOAF artists

Hi there! As The Other Art Fair approaches, we at Tagsmart thought we could give you a hand. We know how overwhelming an art fair can be, so we’ve created this handy checklist to help you make sure you don’t forget anything:

1. Photograph all your artworks and ensure you have the best quality digital copies saved.

2. Create your artwork records on the Tagsmart Certify platform: guarantee the authenticity of your artworks, create your online catalogue which can be viewed and shared on social media or via email, and ensure you will be able to issue secure Tagsmart Certificates of Authenticity for your buyers at the fair. Not a Tagsmart Certify artist yet? Register now!

3. Set all prices set and have cheaper priced artworks for those who cannot purchase the more expensive pieces. Don’t forget to bring along some red dot stickers to indicate an artwork has already been sold.

4. Let our team know if you need any Tagsmart Certify materials. Do you need Smart Tags for your artworks? Order them now! How about some promo materials? Just get in touch and we can send you sample Certificates of Authenticity and ‘Tagsmart Registered’ wall stickers.

5. Don’t forget your business cards to be given to your buyers and people who show an interest in your work. How about sending a newsletter to your collectors too?

6. Package and transport the artworks with special care and create label cards to be included alongside the artworks.

7. When setting up the exhibition space, imagine how visitors will interact with your artworks. Which piece will they see first? Try to plan ahead what will be replacing the sold artworks.

8. Take pictures! This is a moment you will want to remember for years to come!

Good luck, have fun and enjoy yourself!
