Benefits of Buying Original Art / Why buying original Art?
Whether you’re a new home-owner embarking on a redecorating project, or just looking to freshen up a tired space, one of the best ways to establish the personality of a room is by decorating the walls with art. Most furniture stores sell wall decorations, and it may be easy to pick up a few character pieces from large retailers like Ikea, but what are you really getting at these stores? Art enriches your life in several different ways. Not only does it instantly bring a space to life, but also affect your mood and behavior. A beautiful and bright painting can actually contribute to the overall performance in an official space whereas a calm landscape can help you relax and reflect. Your decision of investing in original should not just depend on its value as an asset but also what it adds to your life and to your personal space.
Investing in art is as much a personal process as it is a calculated decision. You need to be able to emotionally connect with the work and also consider its worth in the future. It might even have some considerable risks however, an art collection is an exciting and enriching journey to embark on. “As a collector, you will discover that surrounding yourself with art can enrich not only your visual experiences, but install a sense of vitality to your life and uplift your soul.”
The benefits and profit aside, the main idea of investing in art should be to find the kind of art that speaks to you and pursue it, as you would your dream house or career.
A secret about buying art that many don’t know is that you don’t need to be a millionaire to afford original, high-quality artwork.
And what’s the point of buying artwork for your living space if it doesn’t look great? Original artwork is hand-produced, and every color is specifically chosen and hand-applied. Mass-produced reproductions use commercial inks instead of oil or acrylic paints, and they are printed by machines. Sometimes, your mass-produced artwork will look pixelated or digitally rendered when you look closely at it. Originals never have that risk, and even the most amateur art lover can tell the difference between an original artwork and a store-bought décor ítem.
A one-of-a-kind artwork will make your space your own. How often have you noticed the same Ikea artwork in several friends’ living rooms? Even if the artwork isn’t by a well-known artist, the originality of the piece evokes more of a sense of wealth and personality into your living space.
The higher quality looks, the originality, the depth, and the story behind the original artwork all add up to help create a strong emotional connection to the original artwork you end up buying. The sheer fact that original artwork can often cost more money means that you wouldn’t end up buying it unless you already felt a connection and attraction to this artwork. However, if you buy original art, you can ensure that your collection is made up of only the worthiest of pieces, and not impulse buys that cost little but waste your wall space with cheap designs that don’t truly ‘speak’ to you.
