I have a question for your Ask Vicente section: how do you and other designers find out about the fabulous art you use in your interiors? Do you visit a lot of galleries? Check out artist websites? Use art consultants? It’s a question I’ve had for a long time. Thanks!
If you live in New York it’s very easy. Go down to Chelsea or midtown Manhattan and the galleries are by the handful. Sometimes some of my clients have art consultants that help them build their collection and then there are some that have asked me to help them pick photography. Sometimes I walk into a gallery and see an artist that I like so I recommend them to clients whose taste might match the art that I’ve found. There are no hard and fast rules and I always try to be flexible to suit the client’s needs.
