DISRUPTORS OF THE ART WORLD
Maddox Gallery is a globally renowned destination for Contemporary art, whether you’re looking to invest or seeking the pure pleasure of owning & collecting art.
DISRUPTORS OF THE ART WORLD
Innovative, progressive and original are just some of the words used to describe Maddox Gallery, which burst onto the scene in 2015, intent on shaking up the traditionally inaccessible world of art.
With three galleries in London and one in Gstaad, Maddox has quickly become a powerhouse within the world of Contemporary art. Its signature mix of works by blue-chip and established artists, alongside hotly tipped emerging talents, has earned it a loyal following of collectors, investors and art enthusiasts alike, who love the energy and innovation that Maddox brings to the art world.
“There is nowhere else in the world where you will find a KAWS next to a Connor Brothers and a Jean-Michel Basquiat beside a Cooper,” says Jay Rutland, Creative Director at Maddox. Instrumental to the Maddox experience, Jay has cultivated an inclusive environment that is welcoming to both existing and aspiring collectors. “With Maddox we want the process of collecting art to be an experience in itself and are here to help everyone advance their art collection, whether they are seasoned collectors or have never stepped inside an art gallery before,” explains Jay. “There is no better feeling than finding a piece of art that you immediately connect with. That’s why art is such a rewarding investment.”
Alongside an exciting roster of exhibitions featuring artists that are both brilliant and sought-after by collectors, studio visits and exclusive events – an opportunity to network with kindred spirits – Maddox Gallery also offers an Art Advisory Service that takes the guesswork out of buying art by guiding clients through the whole investment process.
AN ART ADVISORY SERVICE THAT DELIVERS
The global art market has grown steadily and significantly in the last few decades, as has our desire to collect and buy art. There is no other asset class that is both a serious investment and a bringer of great aesthetic pleasure, with the ability to enrich your life in a myriad of ways.
With very low correlation to other asset classes, the art market has managed to grow during one of the worst economic downturns of our generation. For anyone looking to make a smart investment, the figures are compelling. Contemporary art has outperformed the FTSE 100 every year since 2001 and, according to a 2019 report by Deloitte, 88% of investments in Contemporary art that were held for more than 10 years returned a profit.
A trusted voice in what is a multi billion dollar industry, Maddox Art Advisory launched in 2016 to help clients navigate the often-dizzying landscape of the art market and make the most rewarding investment choices. An art investment consultancy specialising in Contemporary art, since its inception the Advisory has distributed more than £12 million of profit to clients and nurtured a growing family of collectors and investors who relish the chance to build exciting art portfolios.
Combining years of art expertise and hands-on experience with objective market analysis, Maddox’s Art Advisors are experts at matching clients with artworks that they love and which have the potential for big financial rewards. The figures speak for themselves. With a phenomenal track record, the Advisory has achieved a gross return of 27.9% for its clients in 2022 and delivered double-digit returns in each of the past six years.
A WORLD-CLASS DESTINATION FOR APPRECIATING ART
If you are looking to buy a beautiful piece of art that you love, but with the reassurance that it’s a sound investment, where do you go? Maddox Art Advisory’s new home in Shepherd Market, Mayfair. Opened in January of this year, the Advisory’s 8 Shepherd Street address is a world-class destination for discovering the pure pleasure of owning and collecting art.

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, since its opening, the Advisory has hosted an abundance of famous works by legendary artists, including four original Banksy works rarely seen outside of a traditional exhibition environment. For anyone who is contemplating investing in art, it’s an immensely inspiring space that will help to hone your personal taste and discover which styles of art stimulate you the most.
