Original art lovers and collectors,. Are they same?
Today I talked to Jamo Nezzar....A Great Fan of Dale Keown.
He has a Great collection of art gallery at Comicartfans.com.
His views of Original art collection and art market are very interesting. I too think that Original art is not sold now for art alone. It has become a field where some buy art as investment. It helps artists in a way but it is a shame and as an insult for an artist. I think an artist would love most to see someone enjoys his art. I personally like if a collector do not resell. I like if someone else buy it for a higher price because he likes it.
I wouldn't like to hear someone tell me that " I paid this much and won your art in an auction and hope to sell it soon for a much higher price... See, you are becoming more popular."
It is sad that someone spend money on art only to earn more money...
But that's the trend.
