Welcome art lover.
You understand that it’s not just about putting something on your wall, but rather, to find original art that truly reflects your own personality, that you can look at for years to come and that will make you feel like a badass hero every time.
You know that just like the clothes we wear, the way that we decorate our homes tells a story of who we are.
You know there’s not much conversation value in “Oh, I bought this from [any major retailer].
And unlike most who can’t resist a bargain, you believe searching past cheap mass-produced works can be a gratifying experience, especially when you find something that becomes part of our personal history.
Art is also an investment. Something made from great materials chosen specifically by the artist to enhance the story and because they last longer – up to 100 years if properly cared for. Something you can pass onto your grandchildren.
You understand that too.
You know that art can enrich our lives and inspire us by offering us glimpses of other cultures, religions and histories.
You also know that 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.
You appreciate that the value of art lies in its ability to create an emotional and personal connection between the buyer and the prints, and even the buyer and the artist.
Even more, you know people will notice and appreciate your style more than the others’ because it’s unique, authentic, and inspired.
But it isn’t an “instant” easy solution.
It’s more a “create something valuable slow” opportunity.
Although it isn’t really slow.
Think about it like this:
Mark just bought something he saw at IKEA while he was there to buy a couch. End result, some 36 months later he is sick and tired of seeing it everywhere in other places, not to mention it doesn’t look that good anymore. So he has to start all over again.
John invested in getting the right work of art that complimented him and his home. The result, 3 years later he even likes the piece even more and it has become an integral part of his home.
Which is better? Which is REALLY faster?
It’s a different way of looking at it.
A reframe (no pun intended)
But it’s true.
However, as an art lover, finding the right art work can be confusing.
Art Lover (noun)
A person who:
- looks for art that tells a story of who they are.
- uses art to bring color, beauty and a level of emotion into their home
- values direct relationships and supporting artists.
- isn’t willing to spend a fortune or is just getting started.
- hates schmoozing with big-time agents and galleries.
There are a lot of quistions that need answers:
Where to look?
How to check the quality?
What fits me and my house the best?
How not to get ripped off?
No wonder most resort to getting mass produced works, of limited artistic merit, to brighten up any space quickly.
Luckily, there is a better way.
