We buy and display prints out of love for the art work, movies, bands, etc. But going outside of that, I would be interested to hear opinions as to current artists, which will be the top 5 most collectible in 50+ years? And which 1 print of each artist would you believe would be considered their most collectible? I suppose collectability would mean desire for the work, value, and respect.

There is much to consider; the artist's current notoriety / up and comers, the art work itself, subject matter, mediums, and edition size.

Who do you think will be the top 5 collectible print artists in 50+ years and their main piece?

Banksy is probably the only true answer in terms of prints.

This hobby starts and ends with Timmy Doyle. He'll be the first to tell you that you don't collect him... he collects you.
