Investing in your first piece of art can be overwhelming. It's like entering into a new world where you don't speak the language—and you may or may not have the same tastes as those around you. Luckily for you, the folks over at Courvoisier have compiled a list of the ten emerging American artists worth investing in. 

The list features up-and-comers like Maya Hayuk, a female artist taking on the art scene one giant wall at a time. Her geometric, acrylic murals catch the eye of bystanders from quite the distance. Meanwhile, Greg Haberny 's works offer a chaotic look at American cultural themes. Normalcy gets flipped on its head by artist Johnny Taylor, who takes a folk-pop art angle when portraying everyday life. 

See who else you should be on the lookout for, so you can stroll confidently into a gallery or art fair and invest in a work that won't just be appreciated by you, but hopefully will appreciate over time.
