Have you ever dreamt of owning The Kiss by Gustav Klimt?
How about the Mona Lisa, or maybe Pollock’s Blue Poles?
written by Maurice Cardinal …
It’s now possible to invest in and own fractionalized masterpieces, shares essentially, of a growing number of fine art works from masters like Monet, Warhol, Picasso, Man Ray, and more. Plus, on a more accessible level, pieces from accomplished contemporary artists like David Bailey, Marilyn Hurst, and also emerging newcomers like abstract artist, Doriz.
Not all of these artists or their galleries currently sell shares of their work, or even trade their art on exchanges. Early adopters however have figured out how to leverage this growing phenomenon, and more artists are getting onboard every day. They recognize that value in art can be protected and grown when you convert it to an art token.
Owning art, is an art of “balance” between buying what you like, and investing in something that has potential to increase in value. A number of elements factor into this rapidly evolving investment/enjoyment equation, including the ubiquitous long tail, which simply means that sometimes less is more.
Buy art because you like it
Thanks to cryptoblock (cryptocurrencies and blockchain), art lovers can now “keep it” and “eat it” too. Collectors can consume and enjoy all types of incredible art, plus keep the monetarily-valuable non-fungible tokenized portion, which can be traded at any time–for a profit no less if done right, and of course with a little luck!
High end established fine art houses like Sotheby’s and Christie’s/Artory, as well as newer cryptoblock entities like Maecenas, service the upper tier multimillion dollar art world.
The real revolutionaries however, i.e., blockchain art exchanges and art games, are developing new and affordable ways for all levels of art lover to share, trade, enjoy, and collect art tokens that have real world monetary value – like CryptoKitties, the leader in the cryptoblock art genre. CryptoKitties, a wildly successful art gaming platform is also a powerful realtime educational tool to help the world get up to speed re digital art.
Art exchanges operate on a slightly different level and offer a variety of commercial and fine art in their portfolios beyond crypto cats. CryptoKitties is also developing parameters for a NFT – non fungible token license that will help define acceptable uses and restrictions regarding ownership, payment, security, scarcity, and a long list of other attributes specific to the new and growing world of digital decentralised cryptoblock art.
Cryptoblock is the long-awaited mainline digital hit that injects contemporary artists straight into the consciousness of their insatiable heat-seeking-niche audiences.
Cryptoblock is also the pill needed to help contemporary galleries become viable again.
New galeries especially, like Art Couture in White Rock are perfect candidates for combining physical canvases with cryptoblock art because it gives galleries an opportunity to reach out beyond their local market and generate additional revenue. It’s not a primary generator, at least not yet, but it does introduce buyers to the physical location and to their roster of artists.
Everyone benefits – especially the relationship between creator and viewer.
Art collectors with niche interests can now easily plumb the unconscious minds of artists, and vice versa. Today’s reality is that artists no longer need to promote to millions. Cryptoblock makes it possible for artists to be pinpoint-selective and connect with a buyer who, just like a new lover, feels the jolt of attraction immediately and follows their instinct into a forever-affair.
Cryptoblock art is lustfully-simple, impulsive, and insanely salacious.
Cryptoblock art exchanges, like the UK’s Blockchain Art Exchange for example, facilitate the electrochemical connection that seduces an art lover at first blush, and then provides a spontaneous way to act upon the compulsion. The decentralized blockchain art process is fully transparent, with guesswork almost entirely eliminated. A buyer no longer has to be concerned that they might be purchasing a fraudulent copy, or paying an exorbitant hidden commission to a middleman.
Authenticity and provenance of each artwork is meticulously traced, instantaneously reported, and fully guaranteed in blockchain art exchanges.
Cryptoblock art tokens are a fast, easy and safe way to expose yourself to incredible art, plus, when you do it right, the value of the art grows organically.
Cryptoblock and art exchanges and games open up a brand new world for art lovers who could have never previously afforded to do what is now possible today on such a modest budget. As an added bonus, digital art is often a wonderful surprise and much more soulful and affordable than most art lovers think – blue chip art at blue jean prices.
Digital art is also much more versatile. You can hang it on your wall, view it on your phone, and most incredibly, display your fine art collection on a Hi-DEF large screen Art Monitor!
Millennials btw, especially young Asians with newfound money, are leading the charge in this forum, and they don’t just buy Asian – THEY BUY EVERYTHING ON A GLOBAL LEVEL.
It’s the latest rage –– all the kids are doing it!
Buying art has never been so satisfying.
