Every time when you walk into a gallery or museum, you will notice the price tags near each painting, it seems that art is only for the people who can afford it at a high cost.

The truth is, as a former art consultant and currently an artist, I could tell you that, Art is not just for rich people. While it’s true that some high-end artwork can be expensive, there are also many affordable options available.

We will discuss more about this topic in our upcoming issues.

Art collection doesn’t have to be very high price artworks, you can always start from what you can reach to, and gradually learn more, dive deeper into this field.

At this issue time, I will introduce to you a few galleries in Singapore that could give you a wide range of options when it comes to artwork collection.
