Ever wanted to start an art collection of your own, but didn’t know where to start? Turns out it’s not as scary as you’d think.

Today, we introduce a very special “audiotorial” series from NOT REAL ART founder Scott “Sourdough” Power. This week’s episode, on the ins and outs of art collecting, is the first in a series that aims to celebrate, elevate, and empower artists and art lovers by addressing topical issues and events in the art world. 

Blue chip art galleries often make art-buying seem exclusive and mysterious—but it doesn’t need to be that way. In this episode, Scott shares his personal reasons for buying art, and how you can follow suit. Learn why starting your own collection isn’t as intimidating as it seems and how buying original art can tip the scales in favor of the artists—not the billion-dollar home decor industry or the galleries that seek to keep the art market opaque.

Whether you’re a newbie to art buying or want to expand a small collection, this is one episode you don't want to miss. Join us for the first in a series of episodes that tackle contemporary art-world issues. 

In Today’s Episode 

Scott “Sourdough” discusses…

  • Why lots of people feel intimidated when it comes to buying art
  • Understanding that most original contemporary artworks out there are affordable
  • Why it’s important for artists to nurture the mass market and grow demand for original, affordable art
