Why is art so expensive? Who decide the price? Art dealers? Gallery owners? Or Artists themselves? When we talk about artistic value, one piece of art could mean a lot to someone and nothing to others. The price of artworks not only get affected by artist’s reputation, but also size, condition, and prices of similar pieces. Importantly, supply and demand strictly apply in pricing. If the artists no longer live, value of scarcity rise higher. Buying art is now considered as an investment, instead of true passion for the art. Many physical galleries are closing because they can’t keep the finances sustainable. On the other hand, rich people increase the prices of artworks, pushing up few big galleries and few big auction houses. With this situation being made, young and potential artists do not get many opportunities to be seen.
Art industry has become a game only for rich people. I believe that artworks and professional artists should be valued with money. But it doesn’t have to be by buyers. Many growing artists want to showcase their artworks to reach out few buyers. However, if numerous number of patrons can build the value of artists’ price together, it will be a big impact that change art industry. What artworks deserve to be the highest price?
