Top tips on buying art

Posted on:

Recently a customer emailed a photo and a comment on how happy they are with the artwork they chose from Mimi Art Gallery.

This is a great example of a well-chosen artwork that really complements the interior design and existing furnishings. The customer has really thought about the colour scheme, the available space and how it will fit into their surroundings.

I really like the use of the bold bright colour against the fresh white wall and cream lounge. Doesn’t it look fantastic? This is a beautiful Ronnie Tjampitjinpa “Fire Dreaming”

Here are some great tips to keep in mind when buying art:

  • Take measurements! Select an area that you want to display artwork and look for artworks that will fit well. Above the lounge is always a good area, which is suitable for a landscape-oriented artwork.
  • How will the artwork fit in with any existing artworks/colour schemes/furnishings? Maybe you want something versatile that will fit in anywhere or a really colourful and bold show stopper to prominently display and show off to all your friends.
  • Hanging; check the weight of the artwork. Can you use a 3M removable hook or will you need a more secure solution? Is the wall appropriate for drilling? Is it out of the way of children’s reach?
  • Love it! The most important tip is to buy what you love. Artwork that you feel passionate about will be a great asset for years to come. The happiness art can give you is priceless!
