Looking ahead in 2015 in the art world

In recent years the art world has appeared, at least, buoyant with high profile sales in the tens of millions.

But what of the future? Melanie Gerlis the Art markets editor of The Art Newspaper predicts how supply and demand will fare in 2015.

If 2014 was anything to go by, it looks bright. Melanie talks of a high end art auction at Christies that raised more that half a billion pounds selling 75 works of art.

This year hasn’t started very well, with the stock and oil markets going down, which will ultimately effect the amount in people’s pockets.

Social media has change the way in which buyers now invest in art, including the potential buying with Bitcoin.
