about 011 - About

We are an international group of galleries specialising in contemporary and modern art. We have built a reputation for sourcing and exhibiting exclusive, cutting-edge art from internationally-acclaimed and emerging artists.

The gallery prides itself on providing collectors of all levels with an accessible platform that offers clients a bespoke service of the highest quality.

Our original gallery, from where we take our name, is located on Maddox Street in the heart of Mayfair, London. We also have two other West London galleries in Notting Hill & Shepherd Market and our first gallery outside of the UK in the alpine ski resort of Gstaad in Switzerland.

For further information on each gallery and the exhibitions we currently have at each of our locations, please visit our Galleries page.

Our Artists

Maddox Gallery is dedicated to supporting and showcasing the work of blue chip, established and emerging artists from across the globe.

The artists who are part of the Maddox Gallery group are all acclaimed in their fields. They work in a range of mediums, from photography to painting. Our artists are carefully selected not only for the excellent quality of their work, but also for their tireless dedication to their art.

Many of the artists we exhibit at Maddox know and encourage each other’s work, meaning the gallery has become an important London hub for this influential international group. As well as dealing in art by blue chip artists including Andy Warhol, we exhibit art from emerging and established artists such as Bradley Theodore, RETNA, Michael Moebius, David Yarrow, Dan Baldwin, Harland Miller & The Connor Brothers.
