Investment value is something widely dreamt up within the art world. But not at Artfinder. This weekend we spotlight ten artists whose average sales prices have increased in the last year. If you're looking for investment, then these are your artists to shop.
Juliette Belmonte: 54% value increase
California-based mixed media artist, Juliette, incorporates a range of materials in her pieces, such as fabric, found objects, gold leaf and collage papers. Juliette has built a strong following — her evocative and romantic ladies and gents in particular — and her pieces aren't available very long on Artfinder before they're snapped-up.
Lilia Orlova-Holmes: 36% value increase
Lilia has been an Artfinder bestseller since she joined in 2014. Inspired by the English countryside, Lilia's pieces are big, bright and expressive. With more than 100 five star reviews on Artfinder, her artwork value is steadily on the rise.
Jiri Havlik: 60% value increase
Seen in private collections in Austria, Germany, France, Canada, USA, Australia and Japan, Jiri's unusual-yet-charming portfolio is much-loved and sought-after. In the past year, his average artwork value has increased by 60%, making his pieces a great buy for those after investment.
Andrew Reid Wildman: 29% value increase
Scottish artist, Andrew, now resides in France and paints the urban landscape that surrounds him. Reinterpreting his photographs into paintings, Andrew's work exudes a sense of nostalgia and eerie loneliness. His art is surprisingly affordable and make for great entry-level pieces.
Hannah Forward: 51% value increase
As a Royal Academy 2018 Summer Exhibition alumnus, Hannah is a printmaker to be reckoned with. Both accessible and affordable, Hannah's work has been increasing in value since her arrival to Artfinder in 2016. Her cassette tape linocuts are a particular favourite amongst Artfinder customers.
