Micro Insight: Evaluating Market Price vs. Average Price for an Individual Artist

Even for top performing artists, there can be significant differences in prices from one artwork to the other. It’s well worth taking a look at each artwork’s sales history and general performance to spot potential deals.

For instance, here are the 5 John Karel NFTs where the current market price is the closest to the adjusted average. These are pieces you could buy if you’re really interested in collecting one of his artworks.

Here are his 5 artworks with the highest difference between market price and adjusted average. These are pieces you might consider selling if want some liquidity.

Disclaimer: Don't make buying and selling decisions solely on average price metrics. Those should only be one factor in a whole set of considerations you look at before making financial decisions!  Also, certain outlier events may make an average price metric less reliable, for example, an artist deciding to sell a piece to a good friend at a lower price than normal.  Do you connect with the artwork, what is the community surrounding that creator or project like, have you spoken to the artist to learn about their vision for the future .etc.; these are all things you should think about as well as the data.
