Art in figures

A new report by ArtTactic would suggest that art is no longer the realm of the rich man with an eye for contemporary art. Continuing economic uncertainty coupled with poor investment returns in other asset classes means that more people are now looking for alternative investments. Art is one asset class attracting more interest.

The report states that money spent on art as pure investment (not just to adorn your walls) soared by two thirds in 2012 to $1.6bn. That is still pretty modest compared to other types of investment, but it also means there is scope for further growth.

If you’re looking for something to invest in as well as feast your eyes on, take a look at our works by Peter BlakeDamien Hirst and Marc Quinn amongst others. If you’re looking for a star of the future, Benedict Drew has been tipped by Art Review as one of 2013’s future greats.
