    For those who are new to buying art it might seem a little daunting. Some galleries can appear intimidating, and the work itself can sometimes seem as though it was created for an elite group of arty types who are the only ones who will ever ‘get it’. We’ve therefore created a list of things to consider on your fi rst art buying adventure.
     
     
     
    Getting started
     
     
     
    If you’re not sure where to start, consider things that you have an affi nity with, whether it’s the ocean or nude women - there are many artists that work on theme. Do some research and start by looking at local galleries with similar work where you can view art in the fl esh, talk with the curators, find out about up and coming artists that are relevant. Gallery staff are there to assist you with the buying process so don’t be afraid to ask questions - other than ‘does this come in another colour’… Once you start to get a feel for what you like you can extend your research by doing keyword searches online. Art is global, you’re not restricted to local artists or galleries. There are many online galleries that organise shipping to anywhere in the world.
     
     
     
    Fall in love
     
     
    This is the number one rule. Art in your home is an expression of your personality and should speak to you in some way - you will know when you fi nd something that is meant for you as you will be mesmerized and the idea of looking at every day will be exciting. However if you are considering your purchase as an investment as well, then remember to realize the value of your investment you will have toeventually part with it one day. 
     
     
    Consider the scale & where you will display it 
     
    So you’ve fallen in love with a life size rhino from an up and coming sculpture artist and it also fi ts within your budget. It’s all very exciting you love rhinos and you believe you’ve found the perfect piece. That’s wonderful if your new home is a semi rural property and you can create an African Savannah oasis in which to place him but if you’re in the middle of suburbia it may not be best the purchase. Same also goes for content. Consider anything of a graphic nature in the same way , you might love it but you probably don’t want to have it hanging beside your 14 seat dining table at dinner parties.
