Brits purchase mass produced prints from high-street stores (41 per cent)
rather than opting for a one-of-a-kind piece (33 per cent).
The picture is different in Banksy’s hometown of Bristol, however, which leads
the way as the artiest city in the UK, with close to half of its population
owning authentic art.
In contrast, 81 per cent of residents in Belfast don’t own any authentic art
Commenting on the results of the survey, Jonas Almgren, CEO of Artfinder,
said: “While we’d love the UK population to be as informed about the
art world as possible, you don’t have to know all about the historic greats
to appreciate good art.”
