What do you do when you receive artwork? Were you indecisive on the perfect place to hang your new wall art? These are all questions that first-time art buyers have. You may not consider yourself an art collector and that is fine. Maybe you’re hesitant about collecting art.
Most people believe that you have to have a wad of cash to collect good art. However, that is not the case. If you are curious about the artistic process, then collecting art from an artist that suits your taste can be a great way to collect art.
It’s also a way to support and help further launch an artist’s career. The artist will be grateful that you took a chance on them and took the time to understand their art. If you buy one of the artist’s earlier works, then you can say you have art in your collection from when Artist X was just starting out.
So how can you become an angel art investor? Begin by engaging with the artist. For example, we’ll use Romero, an artist that you may not be familiar with. You can contact Romero who’s an avant-garde artist directly.
With the technology we have today you can now connect with artists on their website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and more. Romero would be happy to meet with you because you showed sincere interest in his work. By communicating with him you’ll be able to build a relationship with the artist.
You’ll also be able to discover his work in a way not possible in a gallery. After meeting, you’ll come away with more insight into who the artist is and a memorable moment.
Collecting art is like collecting memories to hang on the wall to transform any room. What has your experience been like collecting artwork from artists?
