Local. Simple. Sustainable. Introducing Art Central Agile

Despite intense economic and political pressures following the pandemic, art sales in the UK have continued to maintain steady growth.

Art Basel’s UBS Art Market Report 2024 outlines that the U.K. holds a 17 percent share by value of the art market. For want of a better phrase, the U.K. has retained its position on the podium as the third-largest art market globally, despite following a period of inflation and a cost of living crisis.  

A recent Artnet article highlighted that art advisor and co-founder of Gerber & Stauffer Fine Arts, Thomas Stauffer, believes London will remain Europe’s most important city for the art trade even with its departure from the European Union.

Activity doesn’t seem to be slowing in the U.K. In fact, Art Basel’s recent Survey of Global Collecting 2023 highlights that 50 percent of U.K. high net-worth respondents intend to purchase some form of artwork within the next 12 months, and 19 percent intend to sell from private collections. 

But there’s a new kind of art movement, and it’s happening right now.
