Why Crixtover Edwin Became a Millionaire at 21 off Graphic Art

Art has been and will continue to play a crucial role in the world economy. With the advent of the internet, more and more artwork is getting advertised and sold online. Even so, the market for art remains mostly offline. In 2018, the global art market’s value was at over $67 Billion, which was an increase from about $64 Billion in 2017. The volume of global art sales reached approximately 40 Million transactions in 2018, up from 39 Million the year that came before.

Part of that growth is Crixtover Edwin, founder of Koulture Kanvas, a home decor company and lifestyle brand providing canvas artworks and accessories. The accessories include framed canvas prints, hoodies, coffee mugs, and customized jewelry at affordable prices. Edwin, originally from Nigeria, he is a digital artist, designer, and entrepreneur. He started in Lagos Nigeria, but his company  headquarters are now based out of Kissimmee, Florida. His company focuses on celebrating inspirational creativity and bringing it right to the doorstep of every art lover. 

By selling his artwork, Edwin has made a fortune for himself in the art industry. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Art/Art Studies, General from the Lagos State University, Edwin knows best about everything digital canvas design and graphic art. Here is what makes his artwork sell.

He Creates Every Piece of Work with Crystal Clear Message

Just because you’re drawing a picture doesn’t mean that you are saying anything. If you aren’t telling a specific story, the image will end up bringing up questions rather than provide answers. Edwin creates each piece of art with a clear objective. To communicate a message that serves as a source of motivation to every collector or art lover. His art mainly focuses on Black excellence and pop culture.

Every image spurs a question in the viewer, and it should elicit some emotional response from the viewer. Sometimes you might be asking more questions and making things more confusing. As much as good art should be thought-provoking, the artist’s message should be clear. Edwin conveys his message in-depth with his attention to the small details in a painting.

Thought-Provoking Artwork

According to a quote by the Mexican poet and human rights activist, Ceasar A Cruz, Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. Many artists around the globe live by that quote. Art should speak to people, and it should have a purpose. Artists have been known to use different techniques to point out critical issues like social and political injustices in society, life, and death, among others. Edwin creates thought-provoking artworks based around selected subjects that tell a story to each viewer. In addition to the story, the art turns their walls into an abode of inspiration.

In simple terms, Edwin is comforting the disturbed and disturbing the comfortable with his work. Every piece gets the viewer thinking about the inspiration and meaning behind the artwork. All his graphic art and creative designs come at an affordable price.

Closed Deals

Edwin has made art for many clients ranging from celebrities, entrepreneurs to athletes. He has done custom artwork for a few, including; Gary Vee Podcast “Trash Talk,” Yvonne Orji ( the star of the American sitcom “Insecure”), and UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya as well as Tyler Perry. Others include top-rated eCommerce entrepreneurs like Nick Peroni (Founder Ecom Empires), Gabriel Beltran (Founder Ecom Millionaire University), Chase Hero (Founder The Watchers Eye), Justin Woll (Founder and CEO at Beyondsixfigures E-Commerce Profit University) and Josh F Elizetxe (CEO Snow Teeth Whitening).

Apart from doing painting and graphic art, Edwin has written a motivational book and was published  on Amazon. He wrote the book at the age of 19 and gave it the title, Think Positive Think advantage. The book has helped many assume a positive lifestyle. The art business is what gave him and his family financial freedom, becoming a millionaire at only 21 years of age.

Conclusion

There are many ways in which you can make a positive impact on the people around you. Edwin’s way is through art and celebrating other people that have made a lasting impact in today’s world. Help people make the best out of life by ensuring positivity and interest in success. It is a sure way to achieve success in anything in life.
