Art Markets - Are They Really Worth It?

In this article I’m going to discuss my views on art markets. I’ve attended several over the past two years. Some good, some not so good (a.k.a pretty terrible). I’m going to share my experiences with you and fill you in on some of the top tips I’ve learnt along the way! Where it all began...
