Go out and discover

If you are not sure where to start, the best thing is to go out and visit as many gallery as possible. Even better, read about the exhibition reviews before going to any gallery. It is important to understand the artist and her/his idea behind.

If you cannot travel or go out to see an exhibition, internet has many resources you can use. Nowadays, some galleries are offering virtual tour of their recent exhibitions.

Art fairs are another place where you can discover many artworks in one place. In an article by Artsy, Scott Nussbaum, head of 20th-century and contemporary art in New York for Phillips, suggests that “the more time you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it,”

 

Do not rush

Another important point is to be patient. Do not buy things just because it will be valuable in 10 years.
