The Collector is a compulsive creature that never rests its quest.
Naturally compassionate toward the complexities of the world, The Collector feeds off curiosities, indiscriminate love and uncompromising passions. Knowledge and acumen complement and enhance a natural talent toward a deep understanding of beauty. The collector has no time for the unknown but a lifetime to unveil wonders through the arts.
The Collector may be chasing a concept, a dream, a mystery, a rush or a victory, but the ultimate prize is always, in a way or the other, the accomplishment of the higher self. In fact, The Collector is indulgent but never mundane; frivolous but never shallow.
No matter how, where, and to whom a passion unveils, here we pay homage and celebrate relentless, unreasonable and sometimes incongruent Art Collecting.
