There Are Hundreds of Art Markets. Just because one artwork costs less than another doesn't mean it's a good deal. Despite the high costs often associated with investing in art, it still could deserve a spot in your portfolio. The art market is not highly correlated with the stock or bond markets. That's exactly what investors should be looking for when.No matter what the financial markets are doing -- moving up or trending down -- the art market isn't affected very much. While both stocks and bonds were declining in the first half of 2022, art auctions were setting new record prices. In 2020, the art market faced a challenging environment when in-person auctions were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Turnover in contemporary art fell 34%, and many auctions and galleries shifted online, which helped things bounce back. As we face the highest inflation rates we've seen in 40 years, art can serve as a good hedge against inflation. Why is Art so Expensive? Meaning no one else in the world will have this actual piece of art other than those artists copy righted reproductions of the image. The artist has invested much into his own art by way of equipment of paints, canvas', brushes, various materials, advertising, years of schooling, etc. There are third parties gallery, online sites, agents commission, etc. Charges to the artist, not to mention the artist personal time devoted to creating the art piece. Most all art is an investment and guaranteed over time to increase in value, especially once the artist is deceased, their works increase greatly as there will no longer be anymore unique one of a kind works by the artist. Most serious artists writers, painters, photographers, sculptors, etc. Live by only what they make on their art sales. Thereby, many artists tend to take on part-time or other limited time jobs to get by. Keeping as much time open for creating art. That is to say, the piece means something to the artist, as hours of creating, working, being frustrated, breaking through creative blocks, sweating and worrying over apiece, and yes. Even sometimes pouring their own blood and tears into a piece, an artist without a doubt devotes much of themselves to each art piece they create.
