What's worth collecting....
Robert Greco, Gallery U

Since I deal primarily in emerging artists a lot of people ask my opinion on who to collect.  Everyone is looking to buy up pieces of the next Basquiat,  but for me it is more about passion and support than just making money.  Making money isn't a bad thing, but lending support, spotting trends and loving the artwork around you is more  important.

When curating a show, I want it to be visually appealing.  There needs to be a balance of what will sell and what pushes the comfort levels of people.  It is always easy to do one or other, my opinion is that it is difficult to create a balance and not create confusion.

So many people ask who I personally collect and who I recommend for beginning investors.  Here is my list of artists with inexpensive or reasonable emerging artwork, that is visually stunning and that I predict will increase significantly in value over the next decade.

 Lillan Munch, Gallerist. Ms. Munch, owner of the former Pi Gallery in Copenhagen and seasoned graphic designer is the owner of MUNCH Gallery on Broome Street in NY.
Munch has developed an extensive knowledge of vital artist communities during her tenor as a gallery owner in Copenhagen.  With a particular emphasis on the distinctive styles emerging from Denmark’s thriving art community, the cumulative work of her selected artists depicts the rapidly evolving epicenters of vibrant art movements on two continents through transformative images. Lillan's suggests Rauha Makila.

  Justin Violini, Creative Consulting Executive, Collector and Founder/Curator of the Fearless Project: Justin recommends Sam McKinniss, "I feel he is painting what photographers in the similiar school/mindset are taking photographs of, however I see more of a longevity to the painting." 

 This is the thought I had about Naruki's work.  He is actively capturing the current New York scene and presenting it in such an appealing medium.
