Maybe a slightly biased opinion here. But I imagine the best way to invest in art is to source young talent, and support their career whilst investing in their work. When you invest in art you not only buy a work which could appreciate in value, but in practice you also invest in the artist’s business. Therefore increasing their chances of making it big, and increasing the possible ‘resale price of the work you invested in. With more successful artists, it’s probably harder to build a collection as they may already have a number of collectors interested with their work.
