Artists To Invest in 2021

We like to think that no interior space is complete without a great piece of art. While some artists and their works may be out of reach to the majority of us, there are many great established and emerging artists whose works and art for sale in Sydney are definitely worth the investment. Let’s take a look at a selection of the best artists to invest in during 2021.

Helmut Newton

We’ll start with Helmut Newton prints, one of the regularly featured artists at The Lyons Gallery. We believe he’s one of the best artists to invest in now because there’s been a steady increase in interest in his work in recent years. Of course, this means that the prices his work commands have increased too. We think his work is a good short and long-term investment especially as his speciality, fashion photography, is more popular than ever.

Terry O’Neill

Perhaps one of the most popular artists that we sell art online Australia and to invest in now is Terry O’Neill. You’ll find a range of prints of celebrities from Audrey Hepburn to Robert Redford available to buy at our gallery. Perfect for both the new and experienced collector, a Terry O’Neill print will make a fantastic addition to any collection.

Douglas Kirkland

Douglas Kirkland’s eminent career began in earnest in the 60s. With assignments ranging from fashion celebrity work to capturing the essence of the Trans-Siberian Railway and Japan, his work was featured in both Look Magazine and Life Magazine. In 1961, he was commissioned to capture Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe on film just one year before she passed away. The resultant photoshoot gave us what is perhaps considered as her most memorable set of images.

Since then, his fine art photography has been exhibited worldwide and his images featuring celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Jack Nicholson, John Travolta and Michael Jackson are still loved by many and remain very much in demand.

Tony Kelly

Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1975, Tony Kelly brings his images to life in an irresistible combination of colour and gloss. Now a fine art photographer and Director, his style is highly regarded and sought after by both collectors and advertisers as it captures modern life in a style that simply oozes eroticism and glamour.

Michael Moebius

German contemporary artist, Michael Moebius has a real talent for creating striking images that turn pop-art and popular culture upside down. The popularity of his work shows no sign of waning and we predict that it is destined to increase in value in the coming years.

Best Artists To Invest in Now

Other popular established artists includes Banksy art who, after 30 years, has still managed to conceal his identity. Arguably the most controversial street artist in the world, any work by this enigmatic artist will be a worthwhile investment.

As a leading figure in the Pop Art movement, iconic images from Andy Warhol include those of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and his Campbell’s Soup Cans. He’s now one of the most famous artists in history.

Works by classic celebrity photographers are always in demand. Look for works both in black and white and colour by Norman Parkinson, the 20th century’s most celebrated fashion photographer who captured models, prime ministers and presidents. Equally popular is David Bailey, one of the pioneers of contemporary photography who captured compelling images of sixties legends The Rolling Stones and the Kray Twins together with stunning black and white photos of Damien Hurst and Supermodel Kate Moss.

If you’re looking for an alternative art investment option from lesser-known artists, you may want to consider works from street artist and activist Keith Haring; Invader, an anonymous French street artist who produces pixelated mosaic installations in cities around the world or KAWS (aka Brian Donnelly), an American graffiti artist known for not just paintings and prints but also toys.
