The first step in collecting art is to understand why you’re collecting a piece of art in the first place. Do you want it to inspire you? Are you adding it as a decorative element to a room? Are you looking at it as an investment? Is the artwork a temporary fix or do you want to have a piece that will last? Once you understand this, you can start looking further.
Where do I look?
Although galleries have often been the “go to place” for quality art, social media is full of contemporary selling artists who link their work to local hashtags such as #melbourneart. You can search that hashtag to learn more about local artists in your area or a global topic such as #contemporaryart. If you like an artist, learn more about them and the inspiration behind their work. Follow them on social media to see how they evolve their work and how they sell their work. They will either sell direct and or through a stockist or gallery. Trust your gut on whether you really like their work, or whether you are just jumping on a trend that might be gone tomorrow.
