Abstract Art - Buy Abstract Art Like a Pro

Buying abstract art is not something similar to buying other art work purely because of the nature of their being. Abstract, being the exact reverse of representational art is a subject of color, shape and how they are used rather than identifiable forms or a picture we normally identify. Basic knowledge of this helps solve the puzzle rather easily.

How to Buy Abstract Art

If you are a frequenter of art gallery, online or elsewhere, you must be fairly aware of categorization that distinguishes the art into two types. Geometric type is a form where the subject is rational and organic is another type where the forms are suggestive of freer and imaginative images of the natural world.

You must begin appreciating the art as some work of music but using colors and harmonious forms expressing imaginative ideas or feelings but nowhere making use of such elements that suggest any external reality. When buying, the fundamental things to care for are formal elements such as line, color, composition-balance, volume, rhythm and aspects like feelings the art exudes and the visual ambiance it produces in us.

Spend lots of time browsing an online gallery or two. The best thing to do when you are unsure is to browse by artist, price or style and narrowing down to a choice you may find on your way. Browsing by color scheme is also one way to start your hunt for a good piece of abstract.

Take some time to gather information on the artist to know whether the artist is established or still emerging; the number and importance of exhibitions to her credit etc to get a sense of her reputation. Value of the art goes up if the artist has had solo exhibitions to her credit. If the artist has won awards and has sold to prominent private collections, you know the art really stands apart.

Don't hesitate to ask questions. In fact, artists and art consultants will be glad to offer you as much information as they have about the artist and the work. You can also consult friends or colleagues you trust in these matters for their opinion. Online galleries offer special features to share and mail the work which you can take advantage of. Advanced tools like Picasso Mio's tool allow you to view the art against an assortment of wall colors. Likewise, 'view-to-scale' option gives a sense of actual size of the piece, in a practical setting.

You must also spare a thought to the art's potential for a resale regardless of what you might be thinking. Often, the gallery you buy the art offers a buyback assurance. It pays to get aware of the buyback terms in advance.

Check the authenticity of the artwork. Often, the pieces are sold with a certificate of authenticity. Secondly, artworks are usually signed on the front while a few artists prefer it on the back. Be warned when there is no signature at all and it is important to insist on a certificate in this case.

Last, but not the least is the budget. Have an idea of how much you like to pay. To give you an idea, paintings by emerging artists, in the medium to large size category, range from $1,000 to $1,500 and goes up with the reputation of the artist.
