Moonpeel.com Brings an Opportunity to Illuminate Artists Careers

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 17 October 2014

With the launch of Moonpeel.com on September 17th, 2014, (http://www.moonpeel.com) artists, both professional and amateur, will have a new social media outlet to promote their multimedia portfolios of images, videos, audio recordings, events, and courses to fans, recruiters, agents, and other artists worldwide. Simple and intuitive, the website also serves as a multimedia platform where users can have direct access to a variety of art projects from amateur and professional artists belonging to any of the following arts: cinema & television, dance, drawing, fashion, literature, music, painting, photography, radio, scenic arts, and sculpture.

The new website, already available in 3 languages (English, Spanish and French), also allows artists to find new collaborators for projects with the use of advanced search filters, to be discovered and followed by fans. Artists also have the opportunity to be discovered by agents and hired by recruiters in just a few clicks.

It is a known fact that artists have always had a hard time promoting themselves beyond their circles of contacts, and also have difficulties displaying all their work in an efficient and professional manner, says Chris Lerminiaux, co-founder of Moonpeel, and former actor, who himself struggled for many years just like millions of artists worldwide in this industry.

Moonpeel was specifically created to solve this problem, not only for actors, but also for all other kinds of artists (singers, photographers, film directors, models, dancers,) continues Lerminiaux.

The website provides a wide range of tailor-made professional tools and unique features with specific user environments, to include a high end classification system that allows artists and their work to be filed proficiently, a multiple search system to find any media or new collaborators quickly, and an internal messaging system which enables artists to communicate directly with contacts, followers, collaborators, agents and recruiters.

Moonpeel is a growing community. At this moment, artists still need an invitation sponsored by an existing artist member or directly by Moonpeel to get a professional account for free for a period of 12 months. Nevertheless, fans can already sign up directly on the website. Fan accounts are free, although artist, agent, and recruiter accounts will require subscription fees. Payments will be made directly online and different periodical subscriptions will be available.

Mario Marcella Introduces a New Category for Fine Art and Knife Collectors Alike

Spokane, WA (PRWEB) October 17, 2014

Fine art and knife collectors are always on the lookout for pieces that are unique and have the ability to capture peoples attention and grow in value. Mario Marcella has encapsulated the desires of both groups with his knife sculptures. By offering his collection of handmade knives to the public for the first time, Marcella has taken collectors imaginations to new levels.

Using semi-precious and precious stones and minerals, Marcella’s knife sculptures can only be described as stunning. This 72 year old artist elects not to use steel in his knives, instead opting for an array of precious and semi-precious gemstones, exotic woods, minerals, ivory, bone and other natural materials. The result of this transforms what are traditionally considered only weapons, into beautiful works of art.

“I purchased a Mario Marcella knife sculpture the moment I saw them”, said Paul Crandall. “I am not a knife collector but these were magnificent and unusual pieces of art. I had to have one. My wife and I showcase it in our living room”.

Marcella does not mass produce any of his hand crafted knife sculptures; they are all one-of-a-kind fine art pieces. He personally crafts each one through a painstaking process that results in the quality of work that collectors have fallen in love with. Over the past 45 years, Mario has perfected his craft and has often only shown his work through small venues. The general public has never been able to purchase these masterpieces, until now. Marcella has partnered with a marketing company and has recently launched a website selling a limited number of his pieces, http://www.knivesinstone.com. Through this limited release, both fine art and knife collectors can see the genius and talent behind the elements he pairs in his knives.

This new category of fine art knife sculptures is sure to get a lot of attention from collectors of fine art, antiques, rarities, upscale decor and one-of-a-kind items. Marcella believes people on a national level will enjoy seeing his knife sculpture creations for the first time.
