WILLAS contemporary provides independent art advisory and curatorial services.

Whether beginning a collection or augmenting an existing one, WILLAS contemporary is able to source and recommend photographs based on client specifications. With expertise ranging from emerging artists to established masters, we specialize in photography which is bold yet technically accomplished.

Our expertise enables the acquisition of works with value and longevity in addition to resonating with the individual collector.

WILLAS contemporary can assist with shipping, insurance, framing and installation of works through its collaboration with the most reliable and experienced service providers in the industry.


 

Deeply inspired by market leaders such as Gagosian & Zwirner, we present our very first online viewing room. The Viewing Room is WILLAS contemporary's online exhibition space, where visitors can explore and collect works by gallery artists and special collaborations.

For us it is a wonderful way of keeping in touch with our followers - we hope you will enjoy your stay.

Art on walls - virtually and in reality

Finding the right art piece for a space can be a challenge. There are so many things to consider - and you might find it difficult to envision the end result. 

We decided to make it inspiring and fun; The new WILLAS app allows you to view artwork in your space before you buy. Download the app to your ipad of iphone to virtually install any art piece from our collection, in your home or office.
