4 Reasons Why Some Art is so Expensive

By Art, Food for thought

The term “artist” describes a painter, illustrator, graphic designer, sculptor, novelist, poet, filmmaker, and even a musician. Art is such a broad term because there are so many various forms of art. Art is defined as “works produced by human creative skill and imagination.” So, if everyone has the potential for creative skill and imagination, why is some art SO expensive?

Here are a few reasons why some art is extremely costly:

  1. It’s hard to put a value on art.

The value of art is determined by the perceiver. The same piece of art can be meaningful to one person, and completely meaningless to another. However, factors like the size of the artwork, the age of the artwork, the artist, and if it has been bought before are important to take into consideration when placing a value on a piece of art.

  1. Supply and demand.

Many pieces of artwork receive an increased value after the artist has passed away because artwork by that person becomes limited. The demand for this artwork increases, which also increases the cost.

  1. Art is seen as an easy investment.

Art’s value is constantly changing. One day, it could be worth a million dollars, but a decade later, it could be worth so much more than that. Because of this, wealthy people sometimes purchase art for the purpose of gaining more wealth rather than to have the artwork.

  1. Practicing art is expensive.

The supplies needed to create good-quality art can be very costly. Creating art also takes a lot of time. It’s also difficult for artists to sell their work for a reasonable price locally. This is why artists are usually called starving artists. Because the mediums to create the artwork are expensive, and it takes hours upon hours to finally have the piece of artwork completed, the value of the art increases tremendously.

How to Spruce Up Your Space!

By Art

Choosing the right artwork for your home is an important task. After all, you spend most of your time in your living space – whether it’s a condo, apartment or house. You want décor that lets you express yourself and makes you feel at peace in body and soul. Sound deep? It doesn’t have to be! We have put together some tips for helping you choose the right art with no stress – it really just comes down to a few practical approaches to get started.

First and foremost, determine the amount of space you have. Get out the tape measure and take account of your wall space that you want to fill. Decide whether you would like one large accent piece – which can make a huge impact – or several smaller pieces to create a gallery wall. Most people opt for the latter and a gallery wall can definitely enhance your space by choosing a strong color palette. Take note of the furniture, wall coloring and other décor in your home and select art with styles and colors that compliment them.

Speaking of color – that’s step two! Use color to make certain areas in your home “pop”, as they say. If you have a room with mostly earth tones, maybe use your artwork to add a splash of vibrant color like red or purple. In a room with several patterns and textures, you might want to choose a more subtle piece of art.

And, finally, the last step is just to have fun with it! Mix styles and colors together in wild abandon or stick to a genre and palette that you’re comfortable with. There is no right or wrong in art. And, remember, sometimes the art chooses you. If you feel drawn to a particular print, take a chance and buy it! You’ll figure the rest out later. There is always a place for a piece of art – you just have to find it.
