New Zealand

NZ is a relatively small country made up of 2 main Islands, and is located south of Australia. It has a population of about 4 million people, of which approximately 1.5 million are located Auckland city which is in the warmer North Island. The city has a good infrastructure, mixed population and a world class quality of lifestyle - especially for growing families.

The developing NZ art market

In 2010 the New Zealand government progressively and purposely created immigration policies that have opened the door to new kiwis, cultures and experiences.

This in turn has stimulated the economy and injected a interesting diverse maturity into country's art market. Primarily western artists works are now being influenced with new styles and thinking that stretches consumer thinking.

The Galleries V's the Secondary Market

There are a few well known private Art galleries that dominate the NZ art scene. They have very close connections with other galleries throughout the small country which allow them to control their offering.

In contrast there is a buoyant secondary market that allows new collectors to enter the market, the galleries don't necessarily like this, however the auction houses do the artists a favour by promoting to collectors that would ordinarily not be able to afford good work.
