  GREETINGS

With June upon us, our thoughts turn of course to Art Basel and all the other fairs taking place in the city at that time - will you be going?

This month, we welcome Yemeni artist Yasser Al Aswadi to our roster. Inspired by the events of the Arab Spring, daily realities, rural landscapes, architecture, and public crowds on the streets, Yasser uses calligraphy to transport us to his world. Take a look at his work here

Look out too for the new feature in our newsletter where we cover a different topic relating to the art market and collecting.  For our inaugural issue, we focus on the hot topic of the rise of buying art on-line.

Enjoy your reading and best wishes as always from all our team
