Why do people buy art?

July 19, 2011 Leave a comment
  • Why do people buy art?
  • Why do people need art?
Is art a wise investment?  Or is art strictly not about money. – But about … identity? Is what makes people buy art perhaps closely linked to what makes people create art? Has that to do with beauty, with a surprising, fresh perspective? A new angle on life? Is it like Picasso said: “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. “?
As we all need to wash – that would satisfy a real need. Can art do that? Can art communicate that.?
