Kings Road Gallery & Tanya Baxter Contemporary, London, United Kingdom

Music Lesson by Konstantin Bessmertny

Gallery Information/Statement

The Kings Road Gallery was founded in 1998 in London, having already opened its Hong Kong Gallery in 1995. It has established a global reputation for exhibiting some of the most exciting European and Asian contemporary work on the International stage by both well-established blue chip artists with auction records as well as young emerging artists on the scene. The gallery’s impressive stable includes the witty Russian artist Konstantin Bessmertny, the rising young star of Magic Realism, Sacha Jafri whose career is accelerating at the record pace and has been earmarked as the Brit artist to take over the 90’s artists such as Hirst and Emin etc. Also one of Britain’s foremost figurative painters, Pip Todd Warmoth, who will exhibit in December 2010 his latest collection “The Magic of Figuratism”.

Chinese art is rapidly growing in popularity and value – boosted by the country’s soaring economy. Such is the importance of the capital for Chinese Fine Art that The Art Market Monitor recently stated that ‘The capital of China is London’. Tanya Baxter Contemporary has worked with the rising stars of Chinese contemporary since the mid nineties when the Gallery was based in Hong Kong. In 2011 the gallery is planning an exhibition for Ling Jian (cynical realist artist) at the Saatchi gallery and in 2011 - 2012 they will host a touring exhibition for Zeng Chuanxing, one of the most important realist artists in the world, where auction records are fast catching up with his contemporaries such as Zhang Xiaogang, Lin Wei and Yue Minjun.

Art from the Middle East and India is now emerging in a similar fashion, fuelled by major sales of Arab, Iranian and Indian fine art at the major auction houses. There is real dynamism in this sector, with young Eastern and Asian artists emerging onto the international stage. Like Chinese art before it, Indian art has emerged as one of the hottest and fastest growing markets today, and is increasingly being seen as a new force on the global art scene. In recent years, a surge of international interest concurrent with India’s booming economy has driven up the Indian art market’s value, making it the fourth most active art market in the world. Kings Road Gallery & Tanya Baxter Contemporary work with the great Modern Masters of Indian Contemporary such as Jitish Kallat, M.F.Husain and S.H.Raza.

The gallery has an art advisory service and advises on building corporate and private collections of contemporary art. Our experience and expertise in the International art market combined with our stable of very sought after and successful artists make us a very safe and dependable place to seek advice and enter the exciting world of contemporary art.
