HOW DO YOU EVALUATE ART AS A N ASSETT FOR INVESTMENT
AND WHEN DO YOU RECCOMEND BUY/SELL
WHO ARE THE NEW BRAZILIANS YOU RECCOMEND AT THIS TIME WITHIN A REASONABLE PRICE RANGE
ASKING THIS BASIC QUESTION TO UNDERSTAND YOUR APPROACH
Very good question. I spent 15 years in a former career on Wall Street and so have mixed feelings when clients ask me if the value of certain pieces will rise. Most people i feel cannot accurately predict this. When we decide to bring new artists onto our platform it is because we LOVE the work and believe it to be timeless. Some of the values will rise and some may never increase from their current levels.
Art can be a great investment and we are starting to deal with some new artists that have demonstrated that skill over many years. However, in the end the only bet we are making is that the world will start appreciating true beauty again. A universal beauty that is timeless and not just the current fashion.
We do not have Brazilian artists onboard yet but are about to hire a new representative in Sao Paolo.
Sorry i did not answer the exact question you asked. We let others predict what will go up and down. We simply present works that we love...
