Art can be a profitable investment: its market offers interesting possibilities to explore. However acquiring an art work is not so easy. Before calculating the ROI, it is important to meet customer’s aesthetic, spatial and budgetary needs. The art advisor advises the collector in choosing the artwork that, by quality and price, is the most interesting on the market. The art advisory service is not limited to a singular operation, but aims to support the collector in all his/her needs: acquisition, management, development up to the disposal or hereditary transfer.
In addition to established artists, whose names and prices are already known by the public opinion, in the artistic scenario there is also the so-called “primary market”: the field of emerging creatives.
Reaching recognition of one’s role as an artist is often very tiring. Finding a professional consultant who accompanies and supports the growth of young artists, guaranteeing tangible results, can make the difference.
Where did you acquire the skills for providing this type of service?
I have worked for many years in art galleries, as well as having a management-oriented university education. For an art advisor it is essential to combine an in-depth knowledge of the economic dynamics of the sector with historical-artistic skills. In addition, in recent years, I have developed a rich network of contacts with professionals who are able to support my customers for legal and tax aspects. Speaking about non-European art, I completed a PhD in demo-ethno-anthropological goods at Bicocca University
How will you guarantee the impartiality of your consultancy if you work for some art companies?
Collaborating with well known art is essential to find authentic artworks with all the necessary certifications. An art advisor is, by definition, an independent professional who offers specific services, to increasing value and financial optimization of art collections.
Which criteria will you follow to choose emerging artists to be included in your portfolio?
I work every day in close contact with young creatives and I am a member of REA! Fair team, which is dedicated to emerging artists. This art fair will take place in Milan in October 2020. Artists who are interested in being included in my portfolio have to submit their cv via e-mail. Some of the criteria followed will be: age, artistic techniques used, expressive poetics, training, exhibition curriculum.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
The consultancy service supports collectors in all their needs: creation, management and enhancement of their artistic collection. In order to find important and valuable artworks, I collaborate with well established companies in the art market, that are able to provide all the necessary certifications about the provenance and the authenticity of the goods. The contractualized activity that I carry out with some of them allows me to offer services such as rental of artworks to be displayed in commercial premises, with the possibility of final acquisition.
Medium-term goal is the creation of a portfolio of emerging artists, using different artistic ways of expression, in order to support them in their artistic career development. Their artworks will be proposed to collectors, with the aim of matching aesthetic taste and future return on investment to every client.
