Art pieces that deserve a spot
When was the last time you thought about an investment? Have you recently had one? When it comes to deciding where to put our hard-earned money, it is normal for us to be skeptical about it. I would like to think even those who were born with a silver spoon in their mouth think their purchases through.
Real estates, cars, and luxury items are some of the words that come to mind when you say investments. Art, per se, is one of those most expensive things. Not this time, though! Gone were the days when we still feel intimidated by owning a piece of art.
Thanks to social media and the online community, a lot of artists are being known. Instagram for example, is one of the most effective tools where they can showcase their creation (and in just one click, you can own it). You no longer need to be part of the A-listers to secure a slot for an art exhibit.
You can start small and simple. Just make sure it is within your allotted budget. It can also be something that speaks your mind or your aesthetic. You may also consider their monetary value, only if you intend to sell it in the future. I doubt it will be the case, though, because I'm sure most of us will buy it because we can feel our connection with it, or it makes us happy. It'll be hard to let go.
Let us introduce you to some artists we love and show you their works: conversational pieces that are worth every penny (with different price points).
