Finding Emerging Artists at Pulse New York

If you are interested in starting an art collection then looking at up and coming artists at contemporary art fairs like Pulse New York is a good idea. You are more likely to find works at a decent price which actually have a chance of appreciating in value than you may at an art gallery. The reason is that many of the artists profiled are already showing potential. These artists are also more likely to be on a critic's radar. And if critics are not writing about an artist they are less likely to be successful. But being represented by a well-known gallery is also a factor to consider. For artists who already have achieved some acclaim it may be easier to obtain their works on paper, or their drawings, which are always more affordable. Whichever way you begin, it is well worth the effort. If you're lucky, you may well end up with someone whose work outperforms their contemporaries. The key is to expose yourself to as much work as possible then you will get better at assessing an artwork's value. You never know who is going to be the next big thing. And while there is no guarantee of success, any international exposure is always a good thing. So, with that, here are my highlights from this year's show, enjoy.
