We build and manage careers for our artists, working with them in the studio, as well as with their galleries.
We consult and advise estates to preserve, defend and promote the works of artists no longer living.
We conceive and produce public projects, commissions and exhibitions.
We develop projects with private galleries and museums around the world and support on-going initiatives in public institutions.
We strategically build and manage art collections of diverse sizes, in this process we buy and sell privately on behalf of our clients and at auction.
We edit and publish catalogues and monographs for our artists, our collectors and their unique projects.
We provide strategic advice on communication, marketing and branding for our clients in collaboration with renowned communication experts.



We are powerful, efficient and not polite. We believe that artists create mythologies in their studio that redefine the meaning of being human. We believe that art is a transformative process that takes ideas, emotions and translates them into two and three-dimensional objects. It’s a visual language that needs to be learned like any foreign language, but is innate; we all have the capacity to experience.

Our collaborators form a unique community in the international art world ; like-minded gallerists, artists, designers and collectors, as well as institutional actors driven by similar passion for content in this unique platform.
