New to the art market and unsure where to start? At artwhatson we believe that art is for everyone.
Buying art can be intimidating, and arming yourself with a little bit of knowledge can make all the difference.
Having a look around and familiarising yourself with what's available is really all it takes to move beyond the 'I don't know much but I know what I like' stage.
There are many reasons for buying and collecting art, and they're all valid. Joy, decoration, inspiration and expression spring to mind… You don't need a vast disposable income to justify purchasing artworks - from works on paper, paintings, photographs to sculpture there is something for every budget.
Our advice? Start looking. The more you see, the more you know what you respond to. Exposure is the key to developing your eye and learning what you like and why.
Intimidated? Unsure about where to begin? We suggest you start by having a browse. Tag your favourite artists and galleries to keep tabs on what you like. From here you're only a click away from sending an enquiry. Our artists and galleries are only too happy to answer your questions, send through more information and examples of other works.
While you're here, don't forget to sign up to our free e-news. It's the easiest way to stay in touch with what's out there, delivered straight to you each week.
Trust your instincts. Look for value rather than investment potential and above all - buy what you love! After all, an artwork is yours for life.
