about art symbol
Color is the symbol of life
Since 1994, Richard and Bruno Mastey, passionate collectors, have forged a solid experience as art brokers and consultants. Having become specialists in both figurative and abstract contemporary art, they run two galleries today on the prestigious Place des Vosges. Their two addresses, where painters and sculptors are exhibited, each offer distinct artistic visions and sensibilities.
The ART SYMBOL galleries promote and distribute their exclusive artists in France and abroad, taking part in major contemporary art fairs each year in Europe, the US and Asia.
“Following the development of our artists and sharing this emotion is a daily source of enrichment and is the aim of our work.” Preferential relations with each artist have made the ART SYMBOL galleries a unique convivial place for cultural exchanges where major figures of the international landscape are often met, especially at preview showings and exceptional events organized throughout the year.
Since 2002, Richard and Bruno Mastey have also devoted themselves to corporate philanthropy providing their experience and sound advice to companies that wish to acquire artworks.
In addition to the creation of EDITIONS ART SYMBOL specialized in the publication of artworks, Richard and Bruno Mastey propose a broad range of services that accompany the acquisition of a work: advice, expertise, appraisal, authentication, framing and secure and confidential shipments in France and abroad by specialized transporters and shippers.
Today, the ART SYMBOL galleries continue to represent established and emerging artists whose universes go beyond trends with styles that are not limited to any specific media. These artists are present worldwide in public collections, private foundations and museums
