Fine Arts Consultancy’s gallery located in London NW3 5BE
Fine Art Consultancy
Fine Art Consultancy are established in Tokyo and London and are recognized as one of the UK’s leading promoters of British and Japanese contemporary artists moving easily between the two cultures.
During recent years we have been showing our small stable of artists successfully throughout the States, the UK and in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore. Clients respond to the pared down aesthetic and quality of these mid-career artists whose reputations continue to grow.
Over the past two decades Fine Art Consultancy has also developed an expertise in Modern British work, especially printmaking, featuring artists such as Sandra Blow, Elisabeth Frink, John Piper and William Scott. We feature our Modern British work in exhibitions and specialist fairs in the UK.
Discover the New Gallery
‘Fine Art Consultancy’ sees the importance of a physical space for their clients to visit whilst so many galleries are closing and going online.
We are delighted to have just opened a new gallery in North London. Our company is recognized as one of the UK’s leading promoters of British and Japanese contemporary artists and with over 25 years’ experience, our art consultancy has built a reputation working alongside property developers and designers as well as offering advice to corporate and individual collectors who are starting or maintaining a collection.
Based in Belsize Village, our new space houses the gallery on the ground floor and the art consultancy in the basement. Any visitors have access to a large stock of work by curated artists; some are new whilst others have been associated with the gallery for decades.
Our artists range from well-known 20th Century Modern British names to less well known contemporary artists and all are exhibited and collected internationally at fairs we participate in annually in the UK, the USA and Milan as well as shows and fairs in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Our gallery now offers visitors one space to browse and view these artists in one place. We are happy for clients to visit out of hours by appointment and to try work out before they buy.
An individual and independent approach to talent
All our projects benefit from the company’s individual and independent approach – we are not dictated to by fashions or trends in art and have always kept away from any narrow definition of ‘Fine Art’ and the dichotomy of the Arts versus the Crafts. We have many artists working for us in a multitude of media and have established long relationships with many of them yet we continue to add new talent from the UK and Japan to our books.
HOW WE WORK
Purchasing and Commissioning Art
We work closely with the client who might be an individual buying or commissioning a work for their home or a design professional such as an architect or designer who is sourcing work on behalf of his client.
Our exhibition programme together with fifteen years of experience means that we have many artists ‘on our books’ but sometimes we need to search for the right artist for a particular project, for example an artist who works in a specific material.
We consider the individual environment, its function and purpose, and decide if work should be commissioned art or purchased art. We offer access to work in diverse media which can be placed as a site specific commission or as existing work which is usually purchased following visits to the studios of selected artists.
