Are OVRs The Future of Art Sales?

Modern advancements in digital and online technology are changing the art market. Online events are becoming more popular than ever as they can be accessed by anyone from anywhere. By simply opening a screen, people are able to instantly access desired products and services from all around the world, which makes it easier than ever to engage with your artistic interests.

The art market is no exception to this trend. Over the past few years it has been strengthening its online presence, and despite an overall decline in sales, the online trade is actually at a record high, doubling in value from two years ago. It is therefore reasonable to expect further substantial growth in this sector.

At the heart of this online art world are OVRs.

How NFTs Benefit The Art Market?

It may be obvious but still needs to be said – the benefits of NFTs for the entire art world are tremendous!

Art that doesn’t exist in a physical form can now be bought, sold, and collected, opening many opportunities for artists, collectors, and investor.

There are also great benefits to physical art from NFTs. Art museums and galleries now have the ability to earn additional revenue from their artworks.

NFTs are clearly helping to create a unique generational synergy between the old and the new art.

How to Make Art a Career: The Three Golden Questions to Ask Yourself

Take steps. Small steps. If you want a career to be long-lasting you don’t want to force something to grow. Building a career is just like growing a plant. It needs to be planted in good soil and taken care of while it’s still small and unknown to the world. It has to get love and the right nutrition to be able to function and to live up to its potential as a bigger plant. 

Do not rush. I can’t emphasize this enough. Yes, you need to throw yourself out there and be willing to do things that scare you, but you should never compromise with your own health – mental, physical or spiritual – nor should you lower your morals or let go of your integrity in order to get to where you want to go. This needs to be intact and if you are a solid artist your career will take off in the time you are ready for it.
