EMERGING BLUE-CHIP ARTISTS
Emerging blue-chip artists with solid revaluation track record and potential and reasonable liquidity expectations in auction houses in the medium term:
Artists with high demand from experimented / big collectors or wealth investors, with a centrally managed waiting list for acquiring their artworks; this facilitates the liquidity of the artwork tomorrow by having the widest possible base of potential buyers.
Artists with a measured, controlled and focused management of their offer of artworks (ideally towards a large private collection or public institution), that will benefit the collector doubly, (a) on the side of the artist’s reputational growth, which will be a support for the artistic/cultural value of the artist and will avoid potential price bubbles, and (b) due to the limitation of the work available in the primary market for new buyers/collectors/investors, which will shift demand towards the secondary market and that will allow the seller collector to better negotiate its sale, both in time terms and in pricing.
Artists that have been accepted, or there is a reasonable expectation that they may be accepted in the short/medium term, in an international auction house, this will open the range of channels through which to divest when the time comes and will increase the number of potential international buyers.
