Investing in already established artists is a safe bet when beginning to purchase art, although the price will typically be much higher than taking a chance on someone lesser known.
To be defined as an established artist means to have a sizeable body of work under their belt, as well as achieving a higher level of prestige. A substantial number of solo shows at reputable and renowned galleries across the world help established artists develop an international audience and receive recognition on a national and international level.
These artists often have a signature style to their pieces that has been developed over their careers, resulting in a unique selling point from an investment point of view.
Artists typically reach this stage of their careers after putting together a body of work that attracts the interest of seasoned investors and securing the support of a recognised gallery. Experienced collectors actively seek out established artists, and as a result, their works are frequently sold on the secondary market, establishing the artist’s work’s value through time.
Established artists have a tremendous prospect for gaining in value or, at the very least, keeping their value because they are not much different from blue-chip artists when it comes to their investment potential, although there is a certain amount of volatility that comes with it.
Some established artists we have at Farhi Fine Art include Alan Davie, a creator that is still featured as one of the people at the forefront of the Post-war Modern art movement starting in the 20th Century. His work sees over 500% returns on some pieces, with minor volatility in the market, whilst mainly giving visually interesting pieces that are a pleasure to hang on your walls.
Overall, emerging artists are a perfect investment into the fine art market, with it being reliable although still interesting. The artists that spring into this category cover a variety of styles, appealing to everyone.
