Advice to artists

The Dutch economist P H Franses has been fossicking around on the edge of the art market establishing the sweet spot when artists hit the high point in their careers. OK, it’s market driven, but Franses discovered via examining 221 high flying 19th and 20th century artists that on average they hit their market peak at 62 percent of their lives. The prime age is 41.92 years.

So Scott Eady, Nicola Farquhar, Tahi Moore, James Robinson, Heather Straka and Daniel Von Sturmer, your moment is at hand. Use it wisely.
