The Growth of the Art Market

Why is the ‘blue-chip’ art market growing?

Investing in ‘blue-chip’ artists is growing largely due to the increase in the number of wealthy individuals, which in the US increased by 243% between 2008 and 2019 according to data from Cap Gemini, and is comparable to the sustained growth of the Artprice index of the top 50 world artists. The population expansion of the Asian market and its emerging countries suggest that growth will continue at the top of the wealth pyramid.

Access the most liquid art

The art of ‘blue-chip’ artists is the most demanded and the highest quality in the world. So, it’s the most liquid in the market.
