With the excitement of Frieze and Frieze Masters having just come to a close, Olympia Fine Art & Antique Fair, running 2-8 November 2015, is the perfect platform for us to show works by extremely sought after, auction record artists. Selected artists will include Marc Quinn, Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Banksy, Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol and Anish Kapoor. We are also excited to be exhibiting an early work by acclaimed British artist Frank Auerbach, who has a large exhibition currently at Tate Britain featuring paintings and drawings from the 1950s to the present day. Auerbach is credited with creating some of the most vibrant, alive and inventive paintings of his time.

Many of these artists sold phenomenally well at this year’s Frieze, including Damien Hirst, whose new piece sold for over $1.2 million, proving that the notorious YBA is ripe for a comeback, his new museum successfully rekindling his demand. Bridget Riley led sales for Frieze Masters, one piece sold for $1.4 million. Frank Auerbach also sold extremely well, with a surge of demand coinciding with his superb retrospective at Tate Britain.
Tanya Baxter Contemporary will also be exhibiting a strong selection of works from our stable of internationally recognized mid career artists. These artists include Pip Todd-Warmoth, who has been painting for over 30 years and is collected by both private and corporate collectors. Another featured mid career artist is Richard Allen, whose recent works display a dazzling palette of exuberant color, suggestive of strength and energy. Allen has a current exhibition in Sydney, and has exhibited internationally in Hong Kong, France, London, and the United States. His work is held in various corporate and public collections including Sydney Bank, Macquarie Bank, Pernod Ricard in Paris and the New Westmead Children’s Hospital among others. Katarina Monier is a French artist who studied at the Sorbonne and has since exhibited in Paris, Hong Kong, London, Singapore, Colombo, and Monaco. Her work is held in public and private collections internationally.

Overall results and opinions from this year’s Frieze confirm that buyers are more confident and faster to jump in and buy than ever before. This further cements contemporary art’s role as the primary driver of the global art market. Contemporary artists are benefiting from a rapidly emerging pricing structure that is the result of increasing transparency of auction results as well as an acute scarcity of Old Master and Modern artworks. The contemporary art market has a turnover of $1.76 billion per year and has grown an astonishing 1800% in fifteen years. Due to this drastic grown in value, contemporary art has become a safe and profitable long term financial investment. Contemporary art is definitely the place to invest, and is a dynamic and exciting market to be involved in.
