Incredible art.

For collectors inspired by passion and purpose.

Postavant helps people with all aspects of buying, managing, and selling incredible art collections.  

Galleries represent the career interests of artists. Auction houses represent the sales interest of consignors. We're here for you, collectors - the vital sustainers and supporters of artists.

We understand contemporary art is difficult to navigate. That's why our clients rely on us to be direct.

We simplify the process, bring clarity to confusion, and offer flexible ways to receive support through each stage.

WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK

Our clients come with different collecting needs and motivations, but they all have one thing in common - they need a trusted ally to help navigate opaque art markets.

Many are just starting and find the abundance of contemporary art overwhelming and difficult to evaluate. Or, they are not sure which art best reflects their unique personality. It could be they find galleries intimidating or wonder if an artwork they love is fairly priced, good quality, and will hold its value.

Other clients are long-time collectors looking to refresh or add coherence to an existing collection. They need a strong curatorial eye to identify gaps and develop a collection focus. Some are confused about their collection as a whole, which they built up over the years as they bought art they love.

For many of our clients, collecting is both a passion and an investment. They need market insights and art historical expertise to access blue-chip art and identify up-and-coming artists. Sometimes our clients come into possession of art and want a great strategy for when, where, and how to sell to maximize its value.

In each case, our clients need experts with strategic insight to really understand what they want. We do this by combining decades of experience to translate your vision into a personal, strategic, and actionable plan.

Where we are
"Where are you based? On my feet. Where are your feet based? Everywhere."

This is one of our favourite quotes from artist Hiwa K.

Contemporary art transcends borders, and so do we. Our clients and projects tend to concentrate in London, New York, Toronto, and Los Angeles.
What Postavant means
Our name nods to the avant-gardes - the trailblazing artists of the 20th century who pioneered new art forms. We are Postavant - after (post) the avant-gardes and always seeking the innovative in art.
