Your guide to a UNIQUE creation


Your guide to a UNIQUE creation
You are looking for something unique and inspiring for that bare wall in your living or work space. You sometimes think about buying an original work of art, but you don't know where to go or how it works.
When you buy art, it is especially important that you look for work that suits YOU. It is important that you like it and that it touches you. For example, a painting can make you happy, or it can move you, intrigue you or evoke a memory. That is why such a playful touch should not be missing in your interior.

Look around, inspiration is everywhere!
How do you discover which art appeals to you and what suits you? You mainly do this by looking at a lot of art. Visit art fairs, galleries and artists and look around at your leisure. For many people, the threshold for entering a gallery is high, because they feel that they actually have to buy something. This is nonsense, you can watch it! But also look around you at hotels, restaurants, interior design magazines. And see what art does in a space. Inspiration is everywhere.

Now that you know what appeals to you, you can follow the gallery or (local) artist via social media or the newsletter, so you stay informed and you don't have to make hasty decisions. Does the work still appeal to you after a while? Then you have found something that suits you perfectly. Visit the gallery or artist to discuss the price and forms of payment. You can often rent a work first or you can use the interest-free art purchase scheme.

The artist in your home makes it extra special
Many artists and galleries offer to come to your home with a number of works of art without obligation. This way you can see which size and colors fit well. Due to different lighting and surroundings, a painting may look different in your home than in a gallery.

You can often keep the work on trial for a week or, if a different size or color palette suits better, the artist can make a commissioned painting for you.

Investing in art
You buy art primarily for yourself and the emotion, but it can also be a good investment. A work can increase in value over time if the artist from whom you bought it has become much better known and prices have risen. Or perhaps the artist has now passed away and can no longer make art. This will increase the value of his/her existing works of art. The artist and his background are of course important for the value (permanence) of a work. Education, career and fame play a major role.

But art is primarily an investment for yourself, your interior, your employees, customers or patients.

It makes you happy and proud and that is priceless!
