America's artwork market recently topped the $152 billion mark to reach a twenty-year record high. While high-demand items were once limited to framed pieces, the nation's interest in this genre has now expanded to include gifts and practical effects. This comes as no surprise to Harry Traulsen, Jr., known in the art world as Old Man Artist, who recently celebrated the launch of oldmanartist.com, a new website dedicated to his signature work. —
Using pen and charcoal as his primary media, Traulsen's hand-drawn pieces include signed canvas prints suitable for framing as well as Holiday Greeting Cards, stationery, invitations, thank you cards and canvas tote bags among other items. Inspired by typical daily life in New York, his artwork depicts lively and whimsical caricatures of wine glasses and bottles, tea and coffee cups, examples of urban architecture and similar subject matter.
Previously, Traulsen served in the United States Coast Guard and has been described as a natural-born leader. Experience and training in this field carried over into his career at the Traulsen Company, a foremost commercial refrigeration enterprise founded by Harry Traulsen, Sr. After starting out in an entry-level position with the company, he worked his way up to senior management.
In line with his characteristic humor, determination and competitive nature as described by those close to Traulsen, Canvas Tote Bags and additional products bearing his touch have been deemed of the highest quality. Prior to the launch of the Old Man Artist website, Traulsen's work was sold exclusively in coffee, gift, cheese, wine and liquor shops as well as via urban museums.
In regard to this recent branching out, Traulsen stated, "Why keep my best work exclusively for the New Yorkers only?" With the launch of the new website, his American Greeting Cards and other pieces are now available worldwide. Those interested are invited to view Traulsen's full selection at oldmanartist.com.
