Magnus Resch has spent many years decoding the opaque art market for general audiences and academics alike, turning a complicated social dance into a matter of quantifiable clarity with books like Management of Art Galleries and How to Become a Successful Artist.
Resch has a particularly unromantic view of how art operates, as might be expected from an economist, entrepreneur, and Yale lecturer. This data-focused approach makes him an ideal person to cut through the messy world of NFTs. His new book, co-authored with Tam Gryn, How To Create And Sell NFTs – A Guide For All Artists, came out yesterday.

In an interview with ARTnews during NFT.NYC, Resch makes illuminating comments on the similarity of the art and NFT markets, why NFTs will change the way galleries operate, and even makes a prediction on what we can expect of the volatile NFT market over the course of the next 18 months.
ARTnews: So what drew you into the art market to begin with?
Magnus Resch: In order to fund my studies, when I was in my 20s, I began selling art, which led me to ask why some galleries are successful and other aren’t. This question became the focus of my Ph.D thesis.
