"No interior décor is done without art décor."

The Beauty of Art Appreciation in Interior Decoration
Art appreciation shows how much intellectual education a person has. And the more you appreciate art, the more you will appreciate the beauty of life.
The appreciation of art is also the appreciation of humanity and the society.
No wonder the #Chinese and the #Japanese are now the leading countries for art appreciation and art collection in the world. Because, art appreciates with time and does not lose its value. But even the most expensive cars will later be abandoned in the garage or junkyard as they are replaced by the newest brands of cars in town.
That is why the most educated people spend millions of dollars to buy the most valuable paintings, drawings, mixed media works and sculptures at art auctions and exhibitions.
The highest selling contemporary Nigerian artist of the moment is Njideka Akunyili Crosby, the daughter of late Nigerian Minister of Information, Dr. Dora Akunyili. Her art work "Drown" broke record for the second time in a row with a huge auction sale of US$1,092,500 more than the expected sale of US$200,000-US$300,000 at the Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Auction in November, 2016.
In 2017, her “The Beautyful Ones” sold for $3,075,774 (including fees).
