Art Collection Trends for 2023

Summer Breeze

You’d like to become an art collector but have no clue how to start, let alone spot the collection trends for 2023. Fortunately, collecting does not have to come with trepidation or fear of keeping up appearances. 

Starting a fine art collection is often as simple as buying paintings that you love. After that, everything else is easy. Here’s what you need to know to keep up with collecting trends for 2023. 

  1. Digital art will continue to be popular.
  2. Street art and graffiti-style pieces will become even more mainstream.
  3. Video games will have more impact on new styles of art.
  4. AI-generated art will offer a strong influence. 

The Continual Popularity Of Digital Art

Custom-commissioned digital pieces continue to be popular and have their day. Some people want to add an NFT (non-fungible token, a type of crypto asset). Diptychs in vintage frames may get their spotlight, too.

Beyond NFTs, some artists are diving into technology to help them create 3D images, holographs, and designs that rely on computers to defy boundaries and expectations. Be on the lookout for one-of-a-kind pieces made using online software. 

Graffiti-Style & Street Art

If you’re truly into contemporary works and want that to be the foundation of your collection, that’s great! However, the people who do the best with collecting, buy a painting because they love it, not because it’s trendy.

When looking at street art, which many experts predict will be a greater trend in 2023, choose the pieces that speak to you. If the work is from the city you live in, influenced by something you love, or just looks good in your living room, then it’s worth the buy. 

Video Games Come Into Their Own

Concept art from major cultural touchstones has always been a wise investment, whether it’s from a Disney film or an early Star Wars scene that might have gotten cut. Video games have become cultural touchstones all on their own–from Halo to Doom–and curators see that trend continuing in 2023. Some of the sketches from games like CyberPunk 2077 and Breath of the Wild would look stunning framed.

The Influence of AI-Generated Art

With the rise of such machines as ChatGPT and DALL-E, AI-generated material has exploded on the art scene. While these can never replace the concept of art itself, the prints created by such apps are not only incredibly affordable, but they can also be one of a kind. If you like outside-of-the-box, consider images generated by specific prompts unique to you or your family.

When it comes to collecting, it’s often a matter of slow and steady wins the race. While it’s important to study the 2023 trends in art, it’s also important to remember that trends come and go.
