JD Malat Gallery aims to promote deserving artists and pair collectors with the perfect art for them.
We deal with primary and secondary market, providing access to illustrious galleries, museums and foundations where emerging and well-known artists alike can showcase their work, and where it can be seen by the public, press, and interested collectors. We personally work with every client, matching artists with the best avenues for growth in the art world, and apprising every collector of the attainable works that suit their tastes and complement the spaces they wish to create.
