When you like art and are considering buying art, you need to know that you fall into one of four mainly categories of art buyer types. They are the art buyers who use art simply as wall decor, art buyers who believe owning art gives them prestige, art buyers who just love artworks, and art buyers who love artworks but also believe that this gives them a certain prestige.

So, let's take a closer look at each one of the buyer art types to see which one is a match for you:

#1: Art buyers who just use art to wall decor:

Someone who simply uses art as a mean to have a good wall decor is very common.  These are the kind of people who can ask an artist of he can change the color scheme of his painting to match their living room. Other commentaries that you can hear this type of art buyers make relate with the size of a painting. For example, they just enter on an art gallery and ask to see the paintings that have a specific measurement.

For this type of art buyers, the quality and the subject of the artworks aren't the most important. The crucial thing for them is that they are buying art that will fit exactly on their measurements and that it matches the color scheme of the room. Even though some of these buyers know how to recognize quality, others don't.

#2: Art buyers who believe owning art gives them prestige:

You can bet you'll hear these buyers claim countless times that they own a work by some artist and that he already had an exhibition at a fancy art gallery. They will know all about the artist's life and work and they will be glad to share with everyone who can listens.

What these art buyers do is that when they are buying art, they only search for the names they recognize. It really doesn't matter if the artist is dead or alive. The most important thing is that it is in high demand, which makes the artworks they buy extremely expensive. For them, buying a painting of someone who is being mentioned as the next top artist feeds their ego and it's just the same as if they have bought the artist himself.

These types of art buyers can even buy a low quality painting just because it is from a famous artist.

#3: Art buyers who just love artworks:

These kinds of art buyers are usually the ones preferred by the artists. They are simply looking for buying art they love just because they love it. They like to open their eyes in the morning and look at the beautiful painting they discovered in an internet art gallery or an art poster they discovered somewhere else.

The artist who created the artworks really doesn't ring any bells for them. The only thing that matters is what the artwork is saying to them.

#4: Art buyers who love artworks but also believe that this gives them a certain prestige:

The fact that an art buyer only buys artworks that he loves doesn't imply that he doesn't feel that buying art gives him a certain prestige. The main difference regarding to the art buyer who only buys artworks for the prestige is that this type of buyer actually loves the artworks. So, he will be buying art that speaks to him when it is from a highly recognizable artist.
