Paris to Takeover as Art Capital of the World
London may soon be losing its status as the art capital of the world as Paris begins to climb its way to the top. Paris has always been known for the selection of luxury goods in its high-end boutiques, this status has been a great entrance into the art world. Additionally, auction houses have been adjusting to the Parisian market and there has been a constant growth in the number of galleries for many years. Will SINGULART Insider be at the heart of the art market?
Amazing news for Parisians, and not surprising to us at SINGULART as we are headquartered in Paris. The consistent growth and increasing value of the Parisian art market and scene has always been on our radar. Although we represent artists and collectors from all around the world, it is amazing for us to be emerged in the art world by living in a city that is inspired by it.

Hand-Painted Murals From the LatinX Community
Street Art has been an important way for many members of LatinX community to feel tied to their cultural roots. Whether they are the artist or are living in the apartment building that’s exteriors contain the mural, the art provides them with a sense of community. The artists are inspired by the feelings and aspects of their home country and display those in the murals. For example, artist, Emilio Carrillo painted a six-part mural on the side of an apartment building, each part features a different country and the experiences of someone who lived there. In general, street art is an artistic channel for many as a form of expression or a way to make a statement.
Esteban Vera, Mexican street artist, shares his experiences through his pieces allowing art to be his creative outlet. Find his artwork here. Follow SINGULART Insider to see more artists!
