    home, or even on the streets, we always stop to admire good art and the aesthetics of a place.

    Art has been a source of never ending satisfaction and it genuinely helps us emotionally and

    mentally. Art also works as good dcor. Art is important, and if you recognise that, and youre

    looking for the right way to purchase your first modern art paintings, then this guide should

    help you!

    How to buy art?

    You would be surprised at how much intuition actually works when buying art. But you cannot

    rely on just your intuition when you are searching for oil paintings. There are many facts that

    you need to acquaint yourself with, and above all else, you must love what you buy. Below you

    will find a few helpful bits of information that will help you.

    The first thing you need to know about buying canvas paintings is the name of the

    artist. The artist need not be recognized by the world, but he must be good and

    dedicated to his work. You should be able to see his passion flow his work.

    You can go through an online art exhibition to be able to browse through a number of

    artists and their works online, and choose someone who appeals to you. There are many


  • up and coming artists who are making a big name for themselves online. All you have to

    do is take the time out to browse through properly, and find art that you love.

    If you are thinking about starting a serious collection of paintings on canvas, then you

    must ensure that the art has a very high resale value. This is important, if you ever feel

    the need to sell off the art you have collected. Considering the fact that you will be

    investing a lot of money in it, you should be able to get back just as much or more when

    you sell it.

    You should ensure that the art you buy is properly inspected. Check for any signatures,

    writing, the frame, and stickers - basically everything that is visible to the eye. The

    better the catalogue and information you find on the artist and his or her work, the

    more you should consider investing in them.

    Finding an online art gallery as a start is pretty easy. There are many of them online and some

    artists are willing to create customized and unique pieces that cater to your need. So, there

    isnt a shortage of information or artists thanks to the wonderful world of the internet. You can

    always get in touch with them, meet them if you want and get the answers to all your art

    questions. The most you have to do is be dedicated to your endeavour to finding the right kind

    of art, whether it is for your house, the office, or simply a collection that you want to start.
