This is a story of Art and this is a story of AI. In Artsurprise we want to experience new contemporary color palettes to paint. Canvas is shifting to screen. Tempera is shifting to AI. This will of course redefine the creator and the process of creating. How does the contemporary artist position himself when the AI slowly slides between hand and palette. What does it mean for the art market when AI creates unique pieces on the assembly line. Where is there room for the producer, the retailer, the market?
There’s a lot of talk about art these days. But what is art, really?
Is it the big paintings that sell for millions of dollars at auction? Is it the quirky pieces that line the walls of hip galleries? Is it the stuff you see hanging in your dentist’s office waiting room?
In short, art is anything that someone creates with the intention of expressing themselves. And while some people may scoff at the idea of dentist office art being on par with a Monet or a Picasso, the truth is that all art is valuable – both emotionally and financially.
Just take a look at the contemporary art market. In recent years, prices for top-tier artists like Warhol, Beuys, and Haring have gone through the roof. In fact, Haring’s „Untitled (Boxer)“ recently sold for $62.1 million at Christie’s, making it one of the most expensive works by a Contemporary artist ever sold at auction.
But it’s not just blue-chip artists who are experiencing a boom in value. The entire Contemporary art market is red hot right now, with new records being set left and right. In 2020 alone, global sales of Contemporary art totaled $13.6 billion – an all-time high.
So, why exactly is Contemporary art so popular? Well, there are a few reasons…
For one, Contemporary art is seen as a more accessible investment than traditional assets like stocks and real estate. It’s also incredibly easy to store and transport, which makes it an ideal way to diversify one’s portfolio.
But perhaps the biggest reason for Contemporary art’s popularity is its ability to shock, surprise, and provoke thought. In a world that feels increasingly chaotic and uncertain, Contemporary art provides a much-needed escape – even if only for a little while.
So, whether you’re looking to invest in the next big thing or simply surround yourself with beautiful things, remember that Contemporary art is always worth considering. Convincing story:
Art has always been a passion of mine. As a young man, I would visit art museums with my family and be awestruck by the beauty and creativity of the paintings and sculptures. I knew then that I wanted to be involved in the art world somehow.
I started my career as an art dealer in Europe, and I quickly realized that the contemporary art market was booming. I was seeing more and more interest in contemporary art, and I knew that this was where the future of the art world was headed.
I decided to start my own contemporary art gallery, and I called it CASAdelDRAGON. I wanted to create a place where people could come to discover new and exciting artists, and I wanted to make contemporary art more accessible to everyone. After a few years i started the european art project ARTSURPRISE. More than 30.000 artworks on stock or sold, we we expand the space for art production, participation and perception.
Since opening my gallery, I’ve been thrilled to see the response from the community. People are really embracing contemporary art, and I think it’s because they can see that it’s not just something for rich people or art snobs. Contemporary art is for everyone, and it’s something that can truly enrich our lives.
I’m so proud to be able to share my love of contemporary art with all of you, and I hope that you’ll continue to support ARTSURPRISE in the years to come. Thanks for everything!
After reading this post, you may be wondering what this has to do with AI. The answer is: a lot. This text is not written by „me“, it is generated by AI, except for the green lines.
ARTSURPRISE uses the know-how from merchandise management and logistics to give contemporary art new impetus. AI is fact. AI will also change the art market, regardless of traditional role models. ARTSURPRISE is in the course of this, are you too?
