"I am seeking. I am striving. I am in it with all my heart."
Vincent Van Gogh
Art and the making of art continuously evolves, but the art of selling hasn't changed for decades - Modern Muse acknowledges that collectors are seeking something new and informative to fit within their daily life. Modern Muse bridges the gap between the collectors desire of purchasing art and the fear of entering a white gallery, by offering an informative solution and a tool before investing.
Our Ambition: Promote the best of this generation emerging artists, giving them a voice to elevate their profile, strengthening artist & buyer relationships, whilst educating art enthusiasts, via a dynamic 1-1 service.
Modern Muse differs to physical galleries and other online institutions as we delve deeper into the artist profile, understanding and sharing their true artistic DNA. We make fair pay for artists our priority and offer an open house in London where artists & collectors can be part of a creative community.
The hub of Modern Muse sits within Notting Hill and is a townhouse called Modern Mews, where likeminded artists, art enthusiasts, clients and creatives will have the opportunity to share and seek new ideas, updates within the industry and much more. Modern Mews is a creative space where artwork can be seen in the natural environment for a collector, a home. Modern Mews hosts events, pop ups, stimulating talks and discussions, dinners to celebrate artists and industry leaders and more!
