Viral Photographer Sarah Bahbah Democratizes Art With New Affordable Prints
An open edition of one of her most popular images is available through November.
Instagram famous artist Sarah Bahbah has released an open edition of one of her most famous photographs, ‘Sex and Takeout – Pizza,’ to be sold throughout November. The new print, a smaller version of pre-existing limited editions, is priced at $300 USD, making it more affordable for fans who may not be able to purchase an original work.
With 500 prints sold since the campaign’s November 1 launch, Bahbah’s strategy to democratize art acquisition is clearly a success. “Art should not just be for the top one percent to store in a freeport where no one can enjoy it until some future museum exhibition,” Bahbah said in a statement. “Art should be accessible for everyone. I want to make sure I’m a part of that shift.”
Indeed, her viral captioned photographs — often featuring celebrity heartthrobs such as Noah Centineo and Dylan Sprouse — have found success in part thanks to the accessibility of social media. Bahbah, a self-represented artist, boasts 944K Instagram followers.
Prints for Sarah Bahbah’s ‘Sex and Takeout – Pizza’ prices out at $300 USD and is available on the artist’s website until November 30.
