Encounter Contemporary



Encounter Contemporary provides access to exceptional works of art by leading emerging and established artists 



Since 2013 we have successfully pioneered a nomadic model that better serves both artists and collectors. 

Our approach is driven by one core premise. By stripping out many of the prohibitive costs of running a traditional art business we don't compromise on our artist selection process or the curatorial projects we undertake. 


We focus on nurturing and promoting a diverse group of high calibre artists over the long term. Leading artists now require a more flexible form of representation. We act as agents tailoring relationships with a small number of acclaimed artists depending on their promotional needs. Our support ranges from curating engaging projects to generating exposure and sales. We often purchase select pieces ourselves to maintain a stake in our artists futures. 


 We recognise that every collector is different. Acting as a guide and educator across many collecting categories we confidently source only the best artworks from our trusted international network of artists, art professionals and private collections. Our advisory driven approach and nomadic model puts our client's ambitions ahead of our own and allows us to pass on significant cost savings to collectors in the form of industry leading commission rates
