Some Ideas About Investing in Abstract Art – Part 2 of 3

That, Which We Learned Already, In The Foregoing Part

In the foregoing part, of this article, we learned to judge the artist’s career, and not to judge the  art , itself. We learned some ways, for us to discover worthy investments, in abstract  art . Now I am going to discuss, for your benefit, some specific artists, so that you can see the method in action.

Here Is One Way, To Pre-Qualify An Artist, For Your Investment

Here is an example, Brittany Sanders. At the age of 25 (as of September, 2009) she is not yet listed in Wikipedia. That means that she is not yet “big league”.

Why Should We Be Excited About Brittany?

Yet Brittany’s stuff has been exhibited by the Met, and is on display in the MOMA abstract  art  gallery, Yale University, the Getty Museum, and in the New York Public Library.

We would have to guess, that, if she, and the abstract  art  market, do not fall into harm, then, in that case, she will be big league ere long, so it is a “hurryup” matter, to get her stuff, while it is still cheap, if you are an investor. Probably her stuff is a good investment, and will rise in value. Brittany works in abstract water color paintings, abstract  art  prints, abstract  art  books, and, abstract  art  gouache paintings.

An Other Type Of Artist’s Career

Let’s compare Brittany to another abstract artist, Tim Tyree. Unlike Brittany, Tim does not make abstract wall  art , but rather he specializes in abstract  art  sculpture.

The only mention, that I could find, of him, in the first 20 Google results, was to say that his abstract artwork sculptures would be shown, through August, 2009, at a coffee and gift shop, in a small town, south of Toledo, Ohio, and that his work is made from everyday items. I found no images of his abstract  art  for sale, nor any other lore about him, than that one event. However much you may like his abstract  art  work, I would say that it would be a dubious investment, unless he were to push his name a bit harder, than he has done, until today.

In Which Instance, Might You Profit From Tim’s  Art ?

The exception, to that thought, to the idea of not investing in Tim Tyree’s  art , would be, if you yourself are a promoter, and you would care to promote his artworks yourself.

Now, I have been trying to find, for you, different types of examples, all different, from each other, so that you can get a notion, of the different types, of careers, that you may want to watch.

Why I Think, That The Next Example Is A “Possible”

The next one is a possible “late bloomer”. For 62 years, he has not gained a great deal of repute, unless I have missed finding some lore about him. Yet, his work was recently shown an abstract  art  sale, along with prints by Kandinsky.

In case you don’t already know it, Kandinsky is considered to be one of the “greats” of abstract expressionism  art , and other abstract  arts . The artist’s name is Patrick Jones. He is definitely not in Wikipedia. Patrick’s  art  was displayed in the Hayward Gallery in London, in the 1980’s. He specializes in abstract painting  art , and in abstract  art  prints. The Hayward Gallery is listed in Wikipedia, which means it is probably an institution of some consequence. However, that event is spoken of, as though it was a peak in his career, and not a part of a continual rising.

Instances Of “Late Bloomers” In Business

There are certain careers, wherein the full “oomph” is given, only in the later years of life. One example is the famous primitive painter, Grandma Moses, and another is “Colonel” Sanders, the founder of the successful Kentucky Fried Chicken chain of fast-food restaurants. Both of them began their careers when they were in there 70’s. Patrick’s career might be of a kind with Grandma Moses and “Colonel” Sanders. Or it might not.

How To Anticipate, If Patrick’s Worth Will Grow

What I would recommend, is that you watch for news of him, possibly create a Google news alert, and see whether he begins to show a pattern of increasing impact upon the communications media, with recognition from potent institutions. If you see such a pattern emerging, then I would recommend that you buy his  art , before he becomes mentioned in Wikipedia. You can get, by him abstract wall  art , including abstract canvas  art , or an abstract  art  print.

How To Avoid “Overcrowded” Searching Results

Since his name is quite a common one, I suggest that you combine some of your searches with the name of the town, wherein his studio is situate, to wit Lympstone. I would put the name “Patrick Jones” in quotation marks, and the word “Lympstone” outside the quotation marks. You could also search his name, along with any one, of the words “abstract”, “ art “, or “artist”.

That, Which You Will Find, In Part 3, Upcoming

In Part 3, I shall go deeper, into the subject, with you. I shall tell, to you, of a “hot property” upcoming, in the world of abstract  art , someone, in whose  art  work, you may wish to invest your money.
