#388 – Scott Lynn & Masha Golovina, Masterworks – The World's Largest Art Buyer on Inflation, NFT's & Reaching Unicorn Status

63 minutes

In episode 388, we welcome our guests, Scott Lynn and Masha Golovina, the CEO and Head of Acquisitions for Masterworks, the newly minted unicorn that’s providing everyone the ability to invest in top tier blue-chip art.

In today’s episode, we start with an update since we first talked with Masterworks back in late 2020. We hear how the company has become the largest art buyer in the world, spending about $45 million per month with over 320,000 investors on the platform.  We talk about some trends impacting the art market like inflation and NFTs. Then we spend some time on the acquisition process of paintings. We walk through the difference between buying paintings at auction and private markets and which factors have the greatest impact on prices over time.

This is unlike any episode Masterworks has done before!
