Original paintings and sculptures are increasingly being purchased by corporations and small businesses. There has long been a market for original art in restaurants, hotels and other public spaces. Now even small to medium sized companies are entering the marketplace for interesting, visually arresting artworks for display in offices and other workplaces.
Employers want to work provide pleasant environments for staff to work in as part of the overall package of treating staff well. And there is nothing quite like an original one-off canvas to provide a talking point. And art can even stimulate the imagination and get the creative juices flowing.
Business is all about image, and often the pictures hanging on your office wall will say more about you than a heavy corporate brochure.
And then there is always the possibility that one day you may find that abstract hanging in reception is worth a small fortune as the artist who painted it becomes collectable and prices rocket. The investment value of art is a key driver for corporate art buyers.
