Art Market Blog September 09 Update-

You may have noticed that it has been several weeks since I last posted on this blog so I presume that you may be wondering where I have been. Well, you will be glad to know that I have not been abducted by aliens, silenced by art industry opposers , or disappeared off the face of the earth. What I have been doing is working on a huge, secret project that I am extremely excited about, and which will be launched in a few weeks time. You may be interested to know that I am writing this post from London where I am currently residing while I work on the last stages of this project. Because London is the centre of the art, antique and interior styling world (hint,hint !!), I made the decision to get a British Ancestry Visa and temporarily relocate to London. My commitment to the Art Market Blog has not diminished in any way, but the amount of time and energy it takes to write a post every couple of days was inhibiting me from putting in the time required to meet the deadlines I had set for my new and exciting project. As soon as this new project is off the ground I will be returning to regular posts and will re-emerge from my self- imposed withdrawal from the limelight.

I will be in London for several months at least so will hopefully be able to catch up with many of the British contacts and acquaintances that up until now I have only interacted with via the internet. I do have a British mobile phone which I can be contacted on and will give to those who contact me via email.

In other news, I recently wrote an article about Turkish born artist Volkan Diyaroglu, who I have been championing for quite a while now. If you haven’t seen his work before then check out the article I wrote for Visual Art Beat magazine here:

**Nicholas Forrest is an art market analyst, art critic and journalist based in Sydney, Australia. He is the founder of, writes the art column for the magazine Antiques and Collectibles for Pleasure and Profit and contributes to many other publications.
