Sala, an artist from Zürich, Switzerland, is selling 1000 paintings of the first 1000 numbers. The selling price of each painting is calculated like this:
Value = 1000 – number.
Initial discount: 90%.
Current discount: 80%.
The discount will decrease by an absolute 10% for every 100 paintings sold.
Min. price: $40.

So far, Sala has sold 171 paintings. A pretty cool idea. Why didn’t I think of it? 🙂

One thought on “Paintings of numbers for sale”
Brilliant! It reminds me of the 2000Bricks project, which is also starting to take off.
