PARIS, Oct. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Published in time for Frieze London and Paris+ art fairs, Artprice has – for the first time – devoted an entire annual report to the “Ultra-Contemporary Art Market”. Available free of charge in French and English, this document analyzes the dazzling auction results for works of Fine Art and art-NFTs created by artists under 40. These works reflect the new concerns and societal challenges that today’s younger generations are grappling with.

According to thierry Ehrmann, President of and Founder of Artprice, “Todayworks by the youngest Contemporary Art stars can become even more expensive than works by the grand Old Masters in just a couple of years. Neither the rarity of a work nor the artist’s place in Art History seems to matter today as much as the feeling of novelty and the passion it arouses“.
In addition to our 2022 Ultra-Contemporary Art Market Report (available free online and in PDF) and to maintain our customary tracking of the Contemporary art market, Artprice is happy to present here a summary of the key figures for the global Contemporary art market as a whole, and for the Ultra-Contemporary segment specifically.
