What's Trending for Creating and Purchasing Art in 2023?

Jenny Gray

As we embark on a new year and decide on our goals for 2023, whether those include more travel, redecorating your kitchen, or buying more art, it is always important to know the forecasted trends for the year. If you’re hoping to add to your art collection with exciting art by emerging artists, we’ve discovered five contemporary art market trends you’ll want to keep in mind as you browse our online gallery. These five trends will set a tone for the year and create rippling effects in the contemporary art world, home decor, and more. Read on to discover our curators’ and art advisors’ predictions that promise to make 2023 your best year for buying art.

New and established collectors are looking to invest more in political and activist art this year. Whether you consider yourself politically engaged or are hoping to become more so in 2023, selecting art that proudly displays your opinions and acts as a conversation starter could be a great motivator to support an emerging artist and actively contribute to a worthy cause. 

Let the artwork in your home speak louder than words while supporting politically active artists making a unique statement and new point of view through their art practice. If you’re hoping to become more engaged in the political conversation and outspoken with your beliefs, buying art as a form of activism and contributing to socially engaged artists’ success will give you a stronger foundation and informed perspective to build on for the year. This greater demand for activism art encourages and inspires artists to create work with a political and social message and further cement themselves in this specific time in history.

Digital Escapism

Bold and Expressive Colors

2023—the year of color and expression. Toss away the beige and boring and welcome in bright, bold, and expressive colors for the new year. The artwork you select for your home doesn’t have to match your sofa or rug perfectly. In fact, your interiors will become far more intriguing and unique when you mix patterns and opt for vivid and unexpected colors over neutral and unremarkable shades. 

When selecting your next statement piece to liven up a space, choose artwork with bright and inviting hues that will reinvent, celebrate, and rejuvenate your everyday living areas and immediately boost your mood. Trending colors like the Pantone Color of the Year, Viva Magenta, embody this sentiment toward uplifting palettes that breathe new life into your home and state of mind. Unconvinced? Bright colors are proven to make you feel more energized and focused. Bold colors can grab viewers’ attention, and wouldn’t you like your visitors to fully appreciate your newly acquired artwork as soon as they step into your home?

If bright colors will never be for you (which is perfectly fine), rest assured that soothing and more natural color palettes will always be in fashion. As wellness-oriented interiors continue to dominate residential and commercial designs, a new art style has emerged that blends the sophistication of Japanese living with that of Scandinavian comfort. A perfect fusion, Japandi focuses on minimalist aesthetics, high functionality, and sustainable practices.

The Japandi aesthetic emphasizes the inclusion and importance of natural materials and textures with simple, useful designs. In 2023, collectors and artists will continue striving to be more eco-friendly and look to support and use sustainable methods and materials. With the combination of sleek Japanese design and the more rustic leanings of Scandinavian aesthetics,  Japandi offers a sensible solution to enjoy the benefits of both. Why choose one over the other when you can have the best of both sensibilities?

Across all the trends is a sense of timelessness. Although these contemporary art market trends are looking forward to the future, their underlying truths surrounding art and art collecting remain the same: whether it’s a statement piece, an artist working with new technologies, or a style embodying lasting aesthetics, these five art trends illustrate our enduring appreciation for art’s ability to move us emotionally and enhance our daily lives.

And the 2023 emerging trend that embodies this timelessness the best is perhaps our final trend, sculpture. Take time this year to discover contemporary sculptors working across various mediums like fiber art, wooden sculpture, and metalworking, and find one that speaks to you. Searching for the right sculpture can be far more fun than daunting when you start small and look at tabletop sculptures or dynamic mobiles to hang from the ceiling. Think about sculpture that works with your interior, whether your home is full of extreme angles and blank spaces in need of comforting textile wall hangings or if your home is overflowing with antique furniture that needs a modern sculpture to mix it up. Be daring this year in your art choices and take advantage of our online gallery with over 100,000 artists working across all styles, mediums, and continents.

Living with Art: Nat Pedley

Saatchi Art Collectors Take us Inside their Homes

Meet Nat Pedley

A Doctor Who Uses Art to Transport Him to a Place or Moment

Nat Pedley is a full-fledged collector, although it wasn’t always that way. “Before meeting my wife, I didn’t really have an appreciation for art,” Nat explained. But after many museum dates and days spent scouring local galleries while on vacation, Nat fell in love with buying art. In fact, it was during a long weekend trip to Block Island, that he picked up his very first original artwork: a small acrylic painting by a local artist which—surreptitiously!—depicted the exact beach view he saw from his window at the bed & breakfast each morning.
A primary care physician in Los Angeles, Nat particularly enjoys how art can transport him immediately back to special memories, and he often purchases art to commemorate a favorite trip or important moment. “I love returning from a vacation and buying a work of art that brings to life the scenery or feelings I experienced on that trip, even if no one else but me could connect the art to the destination,” he says. Of course, art beautifies his home too. “Discovering and living with art is like becoming literate—you are exposed to places, people, and beauty previously unknown to you; the world around you is enriched in a way it wasn’t before.” For him having a house filled with art allows for brief escapes from his regular routine—important given his demanding work schedule. “I only have to meditate on a favorite work for a few minutes to re-experience an old memory or that spark I felt when I first laid eyes on the work.”
“Discovering and living with art is like becoming literate—you are exposed to places, people, and beauty previously unknown to you; the world around you is enriched in a way it wasn’t before.”
His favorite work in his collection is one that commemorates the birth of his son. “I saw a Saatchi Art Instagram post featuring a work by Tarini Ahuja, a young artist in India. The painting is abstract, but in my interpretation you can see a dreamlike landscape with the outline of a baby’s face, with a blue background. I had just seen a similar outline of my son’s face on a sonogram, and the work really spoke to me,” he explained. The work now takes pride of place above his son’s crib, so it is the first thing he sees each day and before he goes to bed.
“The sight of an artwork sometimes tickles you in a way that you can’t articulate, but that you just know would enrich your life by being able to see it on a daily basis.”

Nat’s approach to collecting is simple and natural. “I am often inspired by specific life moments to seek out new artwork, but I wait until I find the perfect one to make a move,” he explains. To that end, he never buys simple to fill an empty wall. “After a work is purchased, my wife and I place it in various rooms until we find the space that feels right.” While he doesn’t need to have a space in mind to make a purchase, he absolutely has to connect with the artwork. “The sight of an artwork sometimes tickles you in a way that you can’t articulate, but that you just know would enrich your life by being able to see it on a daily basis,” he says. When he feels that—he goes for it.

“I love the idea of helping an up-and-coming artist from halfway around the globe.”
Saatchi Art has enabled Nat to take his time browsing new artworks, and to always find what he is looking for—even if he doesn’t quite know it when he starts his search. “Saatchi Art provides a great searching tool to find art related to a particular theme, such as a painting related to a recent travel destination,” he explains.

At the same time, he takes advantage of browsing curated collections to explore what’s new in sculptures, abstract art, or any other type of art he is in the mood to look at. But more than that, he loves knowing he is supporting—and connecting with—emerging artists when he buys at Saatchi Art. “I love the idea of helping an up-and-coming artist from halfway around the globe. When I bought the painting by Tarini, I felt this immediate connection to a complete stranger. I wish I could show her how happy I am that she made that painting.”
“See if there is a work of art that you immediately connect with, and don’t be embarrassed if you can’t explain why exactly the art speaks to you.”
His advice for newbies looking to make their first art purchase? Take your time. Go to an art show like The Other Art Fair and browse without an agenda. Or spend an hour just perusing Saatchi Art. “See if there is a work of art that you immediately connect with, and don’t be embarrassed if you can’t explain why exactly the art speaks to you,” Nat recommends. “If it’s within your budget, buy it, because you won’t regret getting to relive that special connection on a daily basis in the peace of your own home.”

The Next Generation of Art

What is

A Guide to Buying Digital Art

Many collectors need help knowing where to begin when considering digital art. Where can I buy it? What am I buying? Who are the artists worth collecting? And why is it worth buying? At Saatchi Art, we believe you should invest in works that feel valuable to you. The best way to approach collecting digital art is to start with the basics. We want collecting art to be simple, so here are our helpful tips to guide you along the way.

1.  Buy What You Love

Collect digital art that resonates with you. Remember, art is subjective. Consider how the artwork makes you feel. Does it make you see the world a little differently? If the answer is yes, you may have found the perfect piece.

2.  Set a Budget 

Many first-time collectors assume that valuable, high-quality art is unaffordable and difficult to access. Find emerging artists you love, and that sell work within your budget, to support and collect.

3.  Consider Your Lifestyle

There are many ways to enjoy digital art—from physical prints to digital displays and beyond. Do you want to be able to display the work physically? If so, do you have a space in mind in which to show it off? Consider your space and how you prefer to enjoy the work once you purchase it to determine where to start your collecting journey. 

4. Browse, Favorite, and Filter 

Browse curated collections put together by our expert curators. You can favorite works you like so you can take time to consider them for purchase. Take advantage of our many browse filters to search by budget, style, and more.

Living with Art: Rico Brooks

Saatchi Art Collectors Take us Inside their Homes

Meet Rico Brooks

A Music Talent Manager Who
Uses Art as a Creative Outlet

Rico Brooks oversees the music careers of some of the most notable names in the industry, but that doesn’t mean art doesn’t provide a valuable creative outlet for him. “When I’m on the road, I’ll try to sneak into an artist’s studio or stay a day later to go visit art museums,” he explains. Since college, the talent manager has found beauty and meaning in art—whether enjoying the exhibitions on view at his local High Museum of Art in Atlanta or searching out works by some of his favorite artists while traveling (Kerry James Marshall and Jacob Lawrence are on the list.)
“Art was once something that only the rich and wealthy could buy. Saatchi has broadened the base.”
While museums have long been a source of pleasure for Rico, it took longer for him to understand that owning art was something available to him. Discovering Saatchi Art transformed him, as he explained it, “Sometimes we just don’t know what we don’t know—we don’t have access.” Collecting work from Saatchi Art has enabled him to not only collect original art, but buy from an international roster of artists. “They have helped globalize the art buying process. Art was once something that only the rich and wealthy could buy. Saatchi has broadened the base. I have discovered artists that I probably would have never heard of based on their geographic location.”
“I buy what I like and what speaks to me.”
When it comes to adding art to his collection, Rico is confident in his taste and vision. “I buy what I like and what speaks to me,” he explains. “I’m not going to buy it if it doesn’t evoke emotion …I have to have a connection to it.” While his love for an artwork is often impulsive, he also likes to consider where it will go in his home before he makes a purchase. “When I buy a piece, I already have a vision, I’m a very visual person. So I’m thinking about where it’s going to be even with just the whole design of my house.” Yet he is always careful to not miss out on an opportunity to own a work he loves—after all, originals mean one-of-a-kind. “I learned with art—it’s similar to music. When creators have something that you like, you have to kind of seize the moment because you may go back and it may be gone.”
“I can look at a piece everyday and discover something new.”
Beyond adding to the visual narrative of his home, Rico loves how artwork itself tells a story. For that reason, the Street Art genre is particularly compelling to him, presenting a unification of aesthetic and narrative. “I love the discovery aspect of Saatchi Art,” which has led him to appreciate artists as varied as Eddie Love and Mister Artsy Graffiti Street Art Amsterdam. One thing that unites them all, though, is how an artwork never stops changing and evolving. “I can look at a piece everyday and discover something new,” he explains.

“Buy what gravitates towards you.”
His best advice for new collectors starting out: “Buy what gravitates towards you.” At first he started with art that felt connected to people that influenced him—from Jay Z to Malcolm X—and then started expanding his palette more. “Start with what you like, start with what you know. Ask yourself what appeals to you? Do you like flowers? Do you like architecture? Is it animals?” Or he jokes, if you’re still feeling uncertain, “Get a cool friend that you know has good taste.” One imagines Rico is that friend to many people around him.
