The benefits of investing in original Canadian art.

Investing in original Canadian Art has offered better returns than cash and other government investments since 1900, research finds. When I buy art I am never looking for a reason, my primary reason for buying art is whether or not I love it, the artwork I buy has to bring me joy in a way that money alone cannot. No matter how much you love your Tesla stock, it can never deliver the same exhilaration as a house packed full of fine original Canadian art. Life is heavy and far too fleeting to not invest in beautiful artworks to surround you.

Investing in Canadian ArtAs a Canadian artist who paints, my day is about infusing beauty, joy, visual and symbolic stories into my canvasses. It is all about passion, and it is worth your investment. I breathe it all in and let it bleed out onto the canvas, creating something original, tangible, and handmade. An original artwork, the only one of it’s kind. How many things can you invest in that are the only one, painstakingly and lovingly rendered to the creators rigorous standards?

While there are many opportunities when it comes to investing, I encourage you to take some of that capital, and invest it in pure, original, real, fine art, from a living artist. The benefits last generations and can be enjoyed over and over, finding something new in the artwork daily. Original Art offers opportunities for discussion, entertainment, decoration, and in turn increases the value of your home or office.

Did you know that the purchase of original Canadian Art, is tax deductible? Another benefit of investing in original fine Art made in Canada. There are various Canadian Tax Deductions on original Canadian Art purchases. It is wonderful that the Canadian government recognizes the importance of encouraging the purchase of original Canadian art. Investing in the Canadian art market and its creators offers many benefits to Canadian businesses large and small. The Canadian Government has implemented tax incentives intended to promote the purchase of Canadian artwork, now is the perfect time to invest in something that makes your business more beautiful.Investing in Canadian Art

Buying Canadian artwork, paintings, etchings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, etc. is considered as an amortization expense for corporations or individuals who operate a business. It qualifies as a tax deduction provided that certain criteria are met. The Canadian tax law allows business owners to purchase and write-off Original Canadian Art in its entirety.  The acquisition of Original Canadian Art is included in the Capital Cost Allowance for all Canadian businesses, so long as the Artist was a Canadian Citizen when creating the work and the work of art is an original worth a minimum of $200. (more from the CRA website about business expenses and art )

The paintings of Canadian Artist Brandy Saturley have increased considerably in value since the Artist began selling her work in 2006. For example a small 30×40 painting when the artist began selling professionally would run about $500.00 CAD, now a painting of this same size would run you $5100.00 CAD. I say small because the artist typically paints large artworks these days of 3×4 feet or larger.

Your investment in original Canadian Art returns MUCH MORE than monetary returns. The number one way to support an artist is by buying their Art. As a collector, you take on the responsibility – and privilege – of carrying on an artist’s story on their behalf.

Offering 400 Paintings – Buy My Art Collection

Imagine this, you develop a relationship with Van Gogh, and he says to you, ‘buy my art collection’. What if Picasso sold you 300 works, in one fell swoop, in his productive mid-career time of life.  Can you imagine being one person with ownership of an entire collection of works by one artist? There have been a few times I know of where an art collector has come forward to invest in the works of one artist, setting that artist up for a lifetime of painting and allowing for the artist to move on to ‘bigger things’ than what they are currently capable of financing.

Buy My Art Collection

Over the past two decades I have been busy building a significant career and a substantial collection of original fine artworks. The work features in prominent and important collections both public and private. I have gained notoriety as the ‘voice of Canadian Pop Art’ and the ‘Iconic Canuck’. My work is equal parts sincere and quirky, and tells stories deeper than are seen. I am known for my bold and vivid palettes, my paintings are not shy and nor am I when it comes to my Art and where I see myself and my work twenty years from now. Between here and there the goal is always to push the boundaries of the year previous. You may have heard of me or seen my work, and you may not of, but if you are reading this, I am now on your radar.

Buy My Art Collection

As I plan for years ahead I realize that I will not be alive forever, and I will need to begin planning stages for what happens to the collection when I am no longer around. At this point my interest is in selling the current entire originals collection (minus the Goalie’s Mask Painting, currently listed at $91,000.00 CAD).

Buy My Art Collection

Maybe you have billions, you own a beautiful home on Maui, or a brand new Rivian. Perhaps you are building rocket ships or electric cars, or a society altering clothing brand. Perhaps you are an entrepreneur who finds talent and things to invest in, at the most unexpected places (like this blog). Rather than the rush of the auction at Sotheby’s, you find excitement in the direct approach, scooping up the entirety of something just before it peaks (or continues peaking).

Buy My Art Collection

Based on current Canadian art market value, 400 paintings from me, Brandy Saturley, would come to the sum of about  $2.8 million dollars (minus the Goalie’s Mask painting) You bring the cash and I will deliver the paintings to your secure art storage facility, home, or business. You have a home worth $2.8 million just sitting in your portfolio? I could be persuaded on a trade. Just like real estate this art collection will continue to accrue in value in a less volatile marketplace.

Buy My Art Collection

Maybe you read the Financial Time’s, Globe and Mail, Robb Report, or the New York Times. Perhaps you spend your time perusing Larry’s List or Artsy. Have a new Tesla X Plaid? I would consider a trade for 30 paintings from the Iconic series of original artworks. The works in this collection are uniquely Canadian and would love to collaborate with all of the following brands; Lululemon, Canada Goose, Arcteryx, Hudson’s Bay Company, Fairmont Hotels, to name a few.

All I am interested in is continuing to make Art, continuing to push the boundaries of my work and continue this life as a contemporary fine artist. Continuing to travel to those places that feed the work, such as Churchill to record the polar bears or Fogo Island to capture the east coast of Canada. Have a vacation home on Maui? This is where I would love to spend six months of my year painting.

This collection spans two decades and not only includes the Iconic Canadian paintings I have become known for, it includes early work from travels across North America including; Las Vegas paintings, landscape paintings, wildlife paintings and pour paintings.
