May 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Colchester, Essex, UK – May 2012-- Emerging surrealist artist C.J.Cairns opens her online shop for art collectors internationally at . Surrealist pieces of art have always been popular, but now these pieces are becoming affordable to everyone.  There are numerous emerging artists beginning to promote their work online and it gives collectors the opportunity to acquire potentially valuable pieces for very affordable prices.  With an increase in gallery attention C.J.Cairns is one such artist who has started to gain a following.  

Collecting art has become more popular and more available to the general public over the last decade.  Collectors are now able to purchase and sell original signed limited edition works of art on online sites on a 24/7 basis.  Once purchased, the collectors can find that their original piece of signed art increases its value quickly when all the available pieces are sold; simply the process of supply and demand. Therefore, if you purchase a print from an edition of 25, your investment could start to increase in value immediately.  As an example of the investment value, the Phillips auction house in New York in 2004 sold a giclee print by Wolfgang Tillmans for $22,800.  

With the current economic climate there has been an increase in purchases of collectables as investments, for example art, classic cars, pocket watches.  A clear indication of this is the growth of specialist insurance policies to protect individuals’ private collections.  

C.J.Cairns believes ‘art should be available to everyone.  People tend to think that only the rich can become art collectors, but that is simply not true. Anyone can start an art collection.  Providing they retain their COA and invoice they can start buying and selling art, or they can just admire their chosen investment.’ opened its online shop in May 2012 and supplies all the prints with a full COA and invoice.  ‘For a piece of art to reach its fullest investment potential the piece should not only be in good condition but also be supplied with a full audit trail. We encourage our collectors to retain their COA and invoice, and when they come to sell their piece, to contact us so we can maintain our records and protect the value of the piece.’ says Katie Fuller, agent at CCairns Associates.
