It is commonly known that some of the most impressive and significant contemporary art collections in the world belong to corporate companies.

There is no doubt that companies can benefit from having art works on their walls and these organisations, big or small, are often well equipped to potentially build a great collection.

Over the years, our knowledge and expertise of the lower end of the market has also proved attractive to companies, particularly when moving into new offices and looking to put art on their walls. With our philosophy that ‘no budget is too small’ we have been able to demonstrate that a modest outlay is no barrier to building an outstanding art collection for our corporate clients.

Not only will we source and acquire works that will fit any budget, space and style to reflect your corporate identity but we will also take care of smaller but just as important issues such as framing, conservation and cataloguing — all of which are key to maintaining a significant art collection.

We offer a unique service to individuals looking to buy a work of art under £10,000.

We understand and sympathise that the art world can be intimidating and confusing; so our job is to bring some clarity to the table by sifting through the noise and finding the work that is perfect for you.

The art world is full of amazing opportunities to buy good, original, interesting work that is still affordable; you just need to know where to look.

If you are thinking of starting a collection, or simply need help maintaining the one you already have, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Dull life and no time to fix it? Call these people

Back in Canada, Mohammad Miraly has spent years cataloguing his uncle’s prestigious collection of Bangladeshi art. When Miraly, who lives in Montreal, where he runs a family film business, decided to start championing young and emerging artists for his own private collection, he didn’t know where to begin.

Miraly turned to London-based art consultant Nicholas Campbell, whose company, Narcissus Arts, focuses specifically on finding contemporary pieces below £10,000 ($15,065), as well as advising on framing, hanging and transporting art. “I had certain criteria: a price point, I wanted beautiful pieces, and to enjoy artists with great careers ahead of them,” explained Miraly. For Campbell, this meant scouring galleries worldwide to find the perfect paintings. He bought pieces for Miraly by artists including Jonas Lund, Ryan Conrad Sawyer and Gabriele de Santis.

“It would have been very different if I were looking on my own,” said Miraly. “Nicholas has the expertise, as he is involved in art on a day-to-day basis and he talks to all in the industry… Nicholas is holistic. He wants to understand the person so he can help to build a big collection for them.”
Similarly, art consultant Brandon Coburn of Coburn Projects helps clients manage their art collection.

For one client who owns properties in Cape Town, South Africa, Paris and New York and works by Andy Warhol and Banksy, Coburn created a centralised system whereby the client could identify on his iPhone in which property each of his pieces was, down to the room in which they were hanging, while also tracking which art work was in storage.

“Brandon has taken the collection and sanitised it,” the client, who wished to remain private said. “Every piece now has a barcode so I know where they all are at any given time. Also when you have a collection scattered across the globe it is an amazing feat of logistics to get it moving in the way he does.”

Lifestyle facilitators can also multitask. The client said Coburn has also helped him buy Patek Philippe watches at auction in Hong Kong and source an apartment in London.

There is no doubt that companies can benefit from having art works on their walls and these organisations, big or small, are often well equipped to potentially build a great collection.

Over the years, our knowledge and expertise of the lower end of the market has also proved attractive to companies, particularly when moving into new offices and looking to put art on their walls.

Nick has featured in editorial pieces for publications such as The New York Times, Vanity Fair and the BBC amongst others. He was also chosen as the UK’s best art consultant under 35 by Spears Magazine in 2014.

Nick also sits on the committee for Outset Young Production Fund and has also become a member of the ‘New 100 Club’, which is a collection of the top 100 young art collectors worldwide.
