Henrik Uldalen here. These days I'm curating an exhibition with 60 of my all time favorite living artists from all over the world. To go with the show, I want to publish a high quality archival art book for the public to enjoy. The digital world and me has a complicated relationship. As much as I love social media and find the tool to be incredibly liberating and informal, I think these artists deserves to get their artwork shown in galleries and high quality prints rather than on a small dimmed phone screen.
The book will include 60 artists, all displaying 5 of their favorite pieces. The artists in this book includes;
Aaron Nagel, Alessandra Maria, Allisson Sommers, Andrew Hem, Andy Espinoza, Amy Sol, Anthony Hurd, Anthony Waichulis, Aron Wiesenfeld, Audrey Kawasaki, Benjamin Björklund, Brad Kunkle, Brandon Holt, Casey Baugh, Casey Weldon, Conrad Roset, Dan Quintana, David Kassan, Daniel Ochoa, Eloy Morales, Eric Fortune, Erik Jones, Esao Andrews, Greg “Craola” Simkins, Henrik Uldalen, Hollis Dunlap, Hsiao Ron Cheng, Ivan Alifan, Jake Wood-Evans, Jean-Paul Mallozzi, Jeff Hein, Jeremy Geddes, Jeremy Mann, Jesse Draxler, João Ruas, Joel Rea, Julio Reyes, Kai Samuels-Davis, Kenichi Hoshine, Kevin Llewellyn, Kim Cogan, Kit King, Linsey Levendall, Marco Mazzoni, Martin Wittfooth, Morten Thyholt, Matt R. Martin, Michael Hussar, Nicomi Nix Turner, Rico Blanco, Ryan Hewett, Sail, Sam Wolfe Connelly, Sverre Malling, Serge Marshennikov, Sean Cheetham, Shawn Barber, Tom Bagshaw, Tony Curanaj and Vincent Xeus.
I've set the goal to £10.000, but the actual expenses for the book is £18.000, so please don't stop if we actually reach that goal.
Thank you all for following and supporting the Paintguide project over the years. It's been great fun, and I hope to keep it on for many more years!

Risks and challenges
I'm working on expanding Paintguide to be a traveling pop-up show, with a book following each show. There's plenty of obstacles on the way there, but mostly economically, as we have no big sponsors. My companion, Daniela Bezdan are working day in and day out to make things come together for this show, as well as running the instagram account where it all started. We will get through it with the help of you guys, I'm sure. Thank you all!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
