Who is Nick Forrest?
We like this young Australian style and ideas so much, that we felt the need to introduce him to you. Nicholas Forrest is an art market analyst, art critic and journalist based in Sydney, Australia. He is the founder of www.artmarketblog.com and writes on art and the art market for several different publications such as Antiques and Collectibles for Pleasure and Profit and the Saatchi Gallery magazine as well as for various different websites. Since completing a BA (Art History and Criticism) degree in 2003, Nicholas has pursued a career in the art world with a specific focus on the art market and has previously worked as an art broker, gallery curator, exhibition assistant and copyright consultant.
In 2007 Nicholas started the Art Market Blog in response to the misconceptions and lack of understanding of the art market that he experienced while working as an art broker. Since its creation, the Art Market Blog has received mentions on the New York Times website, the Wall Street Journal website, the Conde Nast Portfolio website, Flash Art Magazine, the Saatchi Gallery website and many others. In between giving his opinion and thoughts on art and the art market to clients as well as on tv, radio, in magazines, newspapers and on websites, Nicholas is a keen art collector of Aboriginal and contemporary art.
