Artworks - a form of capital investment

This is a prototype made by the artist. This is the first work, even if the author made several replicas of it later. The originals of works of art are the most valuable because of their unique character. Their value increases the fastest and most with time, as there is only one such copy of the artwork. Replicas made by the author or in the artist's studio are valuable, but investing in them brings less profit. The purchase of replicas instead of originals is more often chosen by collectors who want to decorate a selected interior and experience art on a daily basis.

How to interpret a work of art?

If you are looking for a work of art to buy, you should spend some time interpreting it. A painting to hang on the wall of a new house, or a sculpture to decorate a restaurant room should fit the style of the interior and form a coherent whole with it. Interpreting the work allows you to learn about the artist's emotions during the creation process. When familiarizing yourself with the work, it is worth learning more about the artist himself and his views. It is equally important to learn about the style in which he creates and the techniques he uses. A holistic view of the work, taking into account more than just composition, color and mood, makes for a proper interpretation. When buying a work of art, one avoids later problems with matching it to the style of the interior due to emotions and values that in no way tie the painting or sculpture to the interior design.

Where can works of art be purchased? 

Works of art can be purchased from a gallery that sells them at auctions and online. Art galleries also hold exhibitions where you can see paintings, drawings, tapestries and many other forms for sale. Buyers can view them on the gallery's premises and then choose the artwork they wish to purchase on their own. The exhibitions and auctions feature works from private collections and those created by contemporary artists who have partnered with the art gallery. As a result, the gallery offers for sale works from many different eras, made in different techniques and displaying diverse styles. In addition, the gallery divides artwork into specific categories that make it easier for buyers to find what interests them.

What is an original work of art?

When it comes to artworks purchased for investment purposes, it is important to pay attention to whether one is dealing with an authentic, or original, piece. This is a prototype made by an artist. It is the first work of art, even if the author made several replicas of it at a later time. Works of art are most valuable because of their unique nature. Their value increases the fastest and most over time, as there is only one such copy of the work. Replicas made by the author or in the artist's studio are valuable, but investing in them yields lower returns. Buying replicas instead of originals is more often chosen by collectors who care about decorating their chosen interior and interacting with art on a daily basis.

Why are today's works of art different from those of the past?

When choosing works of art by contemporary artists, one should remember that their message and form look different from those of classical works. The reason for the differences between them is the development of available techniques of artistic expression and the different attitude of artists to the expression of their ideas and emotions. In modern art, the boundaries between different genres are blurring, and controversial forms of expression often rub against pornography and violence. Artists thus draw attention to social, economic and political problems. They also make sure to interact with the audience to encourage them to create the final shape of the work and interact with art in multiple spaces. The artists of the past did not have such opportunities, so without mass media they only reached a narrow audience.

What distinguishes new media artworks from earlier forms of art?

Works of new media and contemporary art may refer to similar issues as the artworks of artists from previous eras, but they present them in a completely new light. The context of new media works is completely different due to social, political and host changes. Even when an artwork depicts motherhood or love, it looks in a different way than a painting, sculpture or drawing from years ago. New media art is also often available in digital form, making it possible to interact with it outside the walls of a museum or art gallery. The public can get acquainted with it through social media or via the Internet. Art understood and presented in this way ceases to be elitist. Its nature is egalitarian - access to new media art is being equalized so that the widest possible range of people from all over the world can interact with it.
