Art Market Sentiment Poll –

I am interested to know how long people think it will take for confidence in the art market to return and for the caution currently being exercised by art buyers as a result of the current financial and economic crises to subside. Let me know what you think using the poll I have created below.

  1. Come on Nick, stop being so gloomy!

    Are you trying your hardest to make ‘US’ artists on our ar/se feel worse?

    The Art Market will be OK, people don’t trust Banks or property, so the next best thing is Art they place their cash, you watch, Art Prices will go through the roof in the coming months, you wait and see!

    If I’m wrong, I’ll buy you a beer, give it to next easter and watch the prices soar.

    That’s my prediction any way.


  2. Hi Dawn, thanks for commenting. You always manage to make me smile. I am not being gloomy. If fact I agree with you that things will rebound very quickly but at the moment one cannot deny that there is a high level of caution and pessimism being exhibited by the market which is caused by the stock market meltdown but does not really reflect the true state of the art market. I am just interested in seeing what people’s opinions are.

  4. The art market will not recover , because the financial markets will never recover again. Gone are the days of bankable contemporary artists. But this is what one must expect when you treat art as a commodity !

  5. Art and the Market

    Art is always a good investment, no matter how bad things’ appear. Art will always have a link with culture, memories and good feeling. When people feel misrable, paintings, photos’, sculptureand any colourfull array can brighten the internal visual concept of bad feeling. So when money issues bother you, go out and buy a piece of colourful, vibrancey. You can start with my works’ if you like, lol.
