How to start collecting art?

  • It is always important to have a genuine interest in art.
  • Do not rush to start your art collection with a large investment. It is also a good choice to begin with works on paper and prints (multiple editions).
  • Always choose the works of art that touch you emotionally and intellectually.
  • You can begin with collecting works by emerging artists of your choice and see how their art potentials develop. Train your eyes by regularly visiting art galleries near your home or while travelling. Please also pay attention to contemporary art trends, international art festivals and market development.
  • Support your favorite artists by acquiring their works in art galleries or on open bidding platforms. This will increase the price of their works.
  • Choose quality over quantity.
  • With time your knowledge about contemporary art grows, you also become confident in your art investment. You can define the core of your art collection and sell the unsuitable works.
