The proximity of Miami to Latin America makes it a very appealing event for art collectors in the region when compared to other major events held in Europe in places like switzerland. This year fair, which is held in the first week of December, comes right after record setting sales of Latin American artist like Fernando Botero who recently saw one of his paintings auction in New York for  near 1 millon dollars.

According to art analysts, Latin American art still perceived as undervalued, making it a safe investment for art collectors. Current top sellers of art like English sculptor Henry Moore can get up to $30 million for their works. This make in comparison Latin Art very attractive to investors.

The Latin American art market has changed in the past decades. 15 years ago, collectors would mostly buy works from the region. Today, thanks to strong economies at home, they are more likely to buy also European and Middle Eastern art.

Miami Beach Art Fair is held Dec 6-9. For more information and tickets visit:
