Collecting is like a disease—you can only stop when you die.
If you give importance only to visual treats, your carrier advances but your art recedes.

Impossible? There shouldn't be such words in anybody's dictionary if he or she wants to achieve something.
Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa


Let us move forward with this attitude. Let us defy the laws of nature with our inner strengths.

Yes, when you go about in this world with a smile on your lips, your face radiating with positive thoughts, your heart filled with kindness & your mind packed with power
you can see & feel change all around you.
Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa

The mistake is that we want to tie the whole world down to our own plane of thought and to make our mind the measure of the whole universe.
- Swami Vivekananda

Chinese art collectives to know now
Collectives and creative partnerships have produced some of the most ambitious and subversive works in contemporary art. The melding of diverse talents sparks fresh chemistry while expanding the scope of manpower, resulting in challenging, thought-provoking projects.

Frequently political in nature, collectives create work that stimulate questions about everything from globalisation to diverse cultural assumptions.
(Collectives are different from collectors ...)

Collect works of emerging artists too:
Establishing relationships with galleries and dealers who have successfully nurtured and promoted emerging artists, as well as visiting contemporary art fairs and museums.

Sourcing artists responsible for pioneering new trends can be extremely rewarding financially.

Purchasing pieces from such artists needs to be done selectively - distinctive of that artist's characteristic style and a quality piece of work. It is a big mistake to buy poor quality doodles from big names. The productivity, trend leadership and promotion of that artist is also very important.

Most importantly, once you have developed your instincts, do not underestimate the intricately detailed intelligence stored in human emotion, with the above in mind. Always buy what you love!

One client is a cautious type who craves facts and figures about whom you’ve studied with, where you went to art school and how many gallery exhibitions you’ve had. Another potential patron thrives on hearing about your challenges as an artist and the way you dip into your deep well of inspiration for creative ideas. Still another just wants to chat about the beauty of your art all day long.

Successful artists know that to sell their work they must adjust to the ways individual customers buy
