Imagine an art gallery that isn’t uptight and makes children feel just as at home as the adults. If you’re looking for a meticulously-curated collection of artworks to choose from, and prefer to do your browsing in a family-friendly environment, you’ve got to make Bruno Gallery your first stop.

And as you browse, the kids can entertain themselves on cute hippo sculptures and wisely-provided sweet treats.
Relatively new at acquiring art? There’s no need to feel intimidated. These tips from Aleksandra Lis, Gallery Manager at Bruno Gallery, will help get you started on acquiring a collection.
1. IT’S ALL ABOUT REPUTATION
If you’re unsure about what suits your needs, seek out advice from a trusted information source such as the art gallery itself. You can also do your research on the Net and discover for yourself what type of art you like – familiarise yourself with the various periods, mediums and styles. At Bruno Gallery, staff will be able to offer some guidance about the artists whose works are on display, and can recommend a few sizes, themes and pieces that match your tastes.
2. DON’T BE SHY
When you find yourself stuck on the type of art that can add personality to your space, don’t hesitate to ask for help. Speaking to experts – other art collectors and consultants, will help you feel more confident about making a purchase. If your rooms are filled with warm tones, choose artwork that radiates positive energy (think sunlight and heat) and have colours with orange, red, yellow or combinations of them. If your home has a minimalist or white interior design, then contemporary art with vibrant shades can add an artistic pop of colour to your decor.
3. ART FOR ANY BUDGET
Good art does not need to cost you an arm and a leg. Bruno Gallery offers high quality lithographs of artworks by master painters and famous icons like Chagall, Picasso and Margrite. Consider looking into works by emerging artists as well. These pieces are usually cheaper and there’s good potential for their value to increase – making them investment-worthy. Make sure to keep receipts, invoices and any other documentation, as these will authenticate and value a work of art.
4. LOVE IT, THEN BUY IT!
In the end, you’ve got to trust yourself and be confident with what you buy. When buying art, its’ best to be able to see the piece in person. Making a purchase based on a picture is risky as things look different. Also, if you’ve found a piece you like and can’t be sure if it suits your home, Bruno Gallery actually offers a brilliant “try before you buy” option. You get to take the artwork home for a short period to see if it fits, before you make your payment.
