2. Buying Art is a great investment.
Art is an incredibly exciting area to place your money in, especially if you love what you are buying. Buying from contemporary artists is a particularly fun way to start - take a look through our collections and see what catches your eye.
3. It supports the Artist in a time where creativity is overshadowed by corporation.
It increasingly feels like we live in a world directed by mass produced, fast consumerism, all at the hands of huge companies and corporations. Why not take the time to buy something truly original and unique, whilst also supporting creative individuals?
4. It brings people together.
Whether its a shared love of a particular artist or style, or a heated debate over whether its "any good" or not, art can inspire thought-provoking discussions and new perspectives. Having a piece hanging in your dining room is sure to bring some good conversation to the table!

5. Art has historical value. As Nina Simone said 'An Artist’s duty... is to reflect the time.'
Art is able to reflect the politics, culture, events and general life of our time, often expressed through the personal thoughts of the artist. Looking back on this firsthand will allow for much greater insight in the future - not an opportunity you want to miss out on.
