About/Services

Since 2004 Adam Biesk Art Advisory has specialized in contemporary art and international emerging artists with an emphasis on artists who have acknowledged museum and auction house participation. Past experience with significant private and corporate collections has built long-term relationships with gallerists and auction houses. Unlike a commercial art gallery that promotes a short list of artists, Adam Biesk Art Advisory distinguishes from a world view of contemporary masters and young emerging artists to make discerning, informed choices.
