Read our article "How to start collecting Contemporary Art".  

1. BUY WHAT YOU LOVE...

The most important thing to keep in mind within the art collecting world is that all you need is love and appreciation. If you really love a piece of art, trust your feeling and instinct. You'll never go wrong. So, fall in love with that artwork before making the purchase

2. SET A BUDGET...

Establish your budget and hold to it. Understand what you can afford and what you cannot and try to buy the best you can. For instance, you may choose emerging art as the first step for your collection, focusing your attention on young, talented and promising artists. Photography and multiple editions may also be a valuable starting point.

3. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH... 

The best way to become a great and hungry art collector is to be informed. Go to art fairs, attend art openings and exhibitions, know the marketplace, talk with other collectors and read art magazines. You will then develop your own fine taste to collect the best art.

4. QUALITY - NOT QUANTITY... 

Higher quality of an art collection is preferable than higher quantity. One may evaluate a great art collector on the basis of the value of his collection rather than on the number of artworks. It is better to collect slowly with judgment than try to rush by taking a decorative approach.
