Things You Need To Know Before Farming Art
Why Farm Art?
Redd visits your island approximately once every 2 weeks and even if he comes, you can only buy one artwork per visit. Therefore, it takes a very long time to complete your art collection.Check Out The Complete List Of Art From Here
This Method Requires Time Travel
The farming technique we'll introduce in this guide requires you to change time. Please note that we are not recommending that you use Time Travel. For those of you who want to fully enjoy the game without using this method, we recommend you don't try this.Learn More About Time Travel From Here
How To Collect Without Using Time Travel
- Wait patiently until Redd visits
- Visit other players' islands when Redd is visiting
- Trade art with other players
- Log in with a secondary account who lives on the same island and buy art

New Day Starts From 5:00AM
In ACNH, the new day starts from 5:00AM. Make use of this knowledge by starting the game from 4:59AM and start a new day in just 1 minute.
Check The Gingko Leaf Icon On The Map
If Redd is visiting, you should see a Gingko Leaf icon in the north of your map. Reset and change the date until you see this icon.
Jot Down The Date Redd Appeared
When you change the date frequently, you might forget on what date Redd appeared. As you need to get back to the exact date Redd appeared, it's important to jot down when you saw him so as not to get the wrong date.
Do Not Change The Month
When you are using time travel, do not change the month. It seems that when you change the time too drastically, the visiting pattern of Redd changes.
