Investing In Aboriginal Art

Feb 23, 2008
When investing in Aboriginal art or artefact's it is sometimes hard to find a good investment, with many of the more popular artists' works out of the reach, financially, of the small to medium investor. If you invest in a number of currently unknown artists, in time, your percentage return on your investment will be astronomical in comparison with an investment in one of the already recognized artists.

As a small to medium sized investor you want to get value for money, buying the work of the more recognized artists can cost you an arm and a leg and then you may have to wait years for your investment to increase in value. I'm not saying "ignore the established artists", but when considering the purchase of a piece of art or artifacts as an investment why not include a couple of the works of the lesser, or even unknown artists, you can acquire their work for a very reasonable price and they may increase in value dramatically in a very short period of time.

As well as offering the works of recognized artists and craftsmen we are encouraging some of the Top Ends' up and coming young artists the opportunity to produce and develop their art. Get in on the ground floor, the artists we are showcasing on this site are up and coming young artists, and their work is highly regarded by the Aboriginal Community and this regard will translate equally into the wider community with time.

Buying from this site you can be assured that the artist or craftsman is receiving fair and reasonable recompense for his efforts; we are not in the business of paying the artist peanuts for his work. I personally have seen an artist being paid $100 for her work and the dealer has then sold it for $15,000, some would say that this is good business, I say that it is morally wrong, and that the artist has been taken advantage of. I can guarantee you that this will not happen if you buy a product from our on-line store. But there are some real cost's in buying and selling aboriginal art which have to be covered , nearly every artist wants cash up front which for some galleries starting out can cause quiet a cash flow problem also there is a huge slack between buying and selling so there is a massive holding cost.

Australian Aboriginal Art is a booming industry. It helps keep alive the oldest culture in the world, when buying aboriginal art you know that you are helping an ancient culture continue to survive in modern times. For thousands of years Aboriginal Culture has been kept alive and has been passed from generation to generation by way of various mediums, Bark Paintings, Rock Drawings/Art, Artefacts, Storytelling, Dance, etc. Now even modern society's mediums are being used to help keep aboriginal culture alive, most notably Film and Music. Mr. Tom E. Lewis, a local identity, has made his mark across the world as an actor, filmmaker and musician; he has been instrumental in establishing an arts centre in his home community of Beswick.
