The future is expected to bring monumental changes in the art and its business; we can expect to have more interesting things than we ever had. Since the end of so famous directions in the art, the art itself has been wandering a bit. With the innovation of new technologies, its concept has become mixed. The art we once imagined will seize to exist. New trends will play a big role, and in some way, they will determine the direction of the art. Out of all artist, we have around the world, maybe one or two will end up in history books. The main reason for such action is that trends will be shorter and shifts swifter. And the artists won’t have time to express themselves.

Paintings haven’t been so popular lately, especially if we are talking about museums and galleries. The art collectors will likely revive the paintings and bring back its popularity. Most likely in the future, this will become one of the most popular mediums. People will start to see the difference and start seeing the hidden messages and meanings. Under the influence of this trend critics, painters, and museums will be forced to return to painting.
The art before 20th century will come back
These trends will slowly come back on the art scene, followed with some classical forms. This now might seem as outdated and antique, put artist will tend to find inspirations in old times. The modern world will become too simple and plastic for them. They will seek for something that has more meaning, something that has structure and form.
Gallery business will become more modern
Some of the outdated concepts that were rooted in gallery business will soon disappear. Galleries will need to become sophisticated and luxury places. The artist will also have major advantages from these changes. Galleries will have to stop producing exclusively clauses that can be found in their contracts. The artist will have more freedom. This trend already started on the Asian market.
Small galleries will disappear
This new age will be the age of large galleries and small ones which have specialized purpose. Galleries will have to make a major decision and go through under the huge process of reorganization. Whether they will decide to become large retailers, like Harrods, of they will become specialized selling shops. They will have two purposes, one: they will attract a large group of people, or they will become a specialist in only one niche. The one who does this job out of a hobby will soon stop to exist.
Photography and printmaking will become popular
Considering that a lot of armature artists have become so popular using a printmaking and photography, we can expect popularization of this art. Artists won’t spend too much time in making the art, but they will chase the right moment to take a picture. New forms and creations will appear.
