Getting rich... not a day goes by without being offered to enrich yourself. Winning the lottery fills up the French tobacco offices in France, on the radio the young people are told to take charge of their rent for a year, on TV you win 1 million every night while the web solicits you 24h/day with lotteries or poker. The quidam dreams of getting out of his sad life and finding himself with his toes fanned out on the edge of a sandy beach.
For gambling refractories, other solutions are proposed. For example, investing in classic cars would pay 467% over 10 years... only if you do not invest in a car produced in millions of copies.
Others will tell you that you need to invest in real estate, in life insurance, in the stock market....
And now we are told that art can earn 400%!
Luxury and art products would be items for which consumers would be willing to pay a high value-added price while the same ones are hard negotiating their lawyer's fees or travel 10 kilometres to buy their fuel at a lower price.
In Paris, in the department stores, we witness with amazement endless queues parked in front of the luxury department stores. The foreign tourist does not want to leave the city without buying the coveted product of his favourite brand.
We are told that artistic work, tattooing, can earn the tattooist 1500 to 2000 euros a day and if the tattooist does a much sought-after artistic work, it can represent astronomical sums of money.
For the common man, what about it?
You don't have to be rich to get interested in art and become a collector. A first work can be acquired for 150 euros.
What is needed is to have confidence in the artist but also in yourself and your own judgment. The work of art must please you first and you must enjoy living with it.
