Looking to invest in an up-and-coming artist? Here's one for you…

by , 10 December 2014

Investing in artistic masterpieces is an expensive hobby. The more famous the artist, the higher the price tag.

One option you have is to try to identify up-and-coming artists who are showing promising signs of potential and whose pieces could rise in value in the future.

So where can you look?

Let's take a closer look…

Invest in art by focusing on up-and-coming artists

The best way to invest in art at more affordable prices is to look at less established artists.

One such up-and-coming artist is David Wightman. The English painter is already building a name for himself for his abstract and landscape paintings. He makes them using collaged wallpaper.

One of Wightman’s big inspirations is Ansel Adams, one of the most famous photographers in the world of art. He hugely influences his work, Sarah Ryan of New Blood Art told Money Week.

What makes Wightman an artist to watch is his completely unique approach. He constructs the picture plane from painted vintage wallpaper. There’s an intricacy to his work that’s not at first apparent.

Wightman graduated with his MA from the Royal College of Art at the tender age of 23. During his degree he won the Young Artist of the Year prize.

How much will a work of art cost you?

Wightman did have a gallery showing his work, but due to the increase in private sales, he now represents himself. He has his first solo show planned for next year.

His work is set to rise steadily in value over the coming years.

At the moment, you can get your hands on a small piece of his work for around £2,000 (R35,000). Larger pieces will cost you anything from £3,000 (R52,200) to £15,000 (R261,000).

Just have a look online if you’re interested in buying one of this up-and-coming artist’s pieces.

So there you have it. An up-and-coming artist to invest in.
