There are several reasons why it can often be more advantageous to buy an artwork directly from the artist than from a gallery:
Price: When you buy direct from the artist, you can often bypass the middleman (the gallery) and get a lower price for the artwork. Galleries usually take a percentage of the sales price as a commission to cover their own costs and profits.
Personal contact: By buying directly from the artist, you have the opportunity to get in touch with the artist personally to learn more about the artwork, the technique and the inspiration behind the work. This can make the purchase a meaningful and personal experience and give you a better understanding and appreciation of the artwork.
No Intermediaries: When you buy direct from the artist, you can be assured that there are no intermediaries manipulating the artwork or artificially inflating the price to further their own interests.
Exclusivity: When you buy an artwork directly from the artist, you can be assured that it is a one-of-a-kind piece of art that may not be available in a gallery. This can make the artwork an even more valuable and unique possession.
