Removing the sense of mystery that often surrounds the world of art investment, the Advisory is a bright, welcoming environment that is unlike anywhere else. A unique destination for art lovers and collectors, it is a space to discover the pure pleasure of owning and collecting art, guided by expert advisors who are experienced in navigating the growing art investment sector.
Over the past eight years, Maddox Gallery has become a dominant force in the world of Contemporary art and its Art Advisory service a trusted voice in what is a multi-billion-dollar industry. As the Advisory’s list of clients has grown, both in number and buying power, the executive team at Maddox recognised there was an opportunity to transform conversations around art acquisition into an experience in itself. A world-class destination for appreciating art in person, the Advisory’s new address is designed to excite, stimulate and inspire in equal measure.
A window into the world of Contemporary art from both an aesthetic and investment perspective, Maddox Art Advisory is an opportunity to come face to face with artworks with a rich narrative and heritage that have been historically proven to appreciate in value over time. Already causing a commotion on Shepherd Street, W1, a frequently changing roster of works by famous artists has ensured a steady stream of visitors, enquiries and new clients. Most recently, it was a series of four original Banksy works that are rarely seen outside of a traditional exhibition environment. Next week, it might be a wall devoted to Yayoi Kusama, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst or Keith Haring.
As well as a space for welcoming clients and discovering work that is tangible, recognisable and potentially very profitable, Maddox Art Advisory also excels at holding the hand of clients as they embark on their investment journeys. This is fine art, with premium price tags attached, and Maddox’s Advisors are experts at matching clients with artworks that they love and which have the potential for big financial rewards.
“Shepherd Market in London is an oasis of culture and calm in Mayfair that attracts an eclectic audience who love to consume and enjoy art,” says John Russo, Maddox CEO. “From the moment that you step inside, it is obvious that this is an extraordinary space, with Basquiats displayed alongside Banksys. With art quickly becoming the most reliable alternative asset class, it is more important than ever to seek out advice from an authority in the industry if you are considering investing. Maddox is the pre-eminent destination for Contemporary art in the United Kingdom and our Art Advisors combine years of art expertise and hands-on experience to deliver high-quality advice and consistent returns for our clients.”
