James Nicholls

James Nicholls is the Managing Director and Curator of Maddox Gallery. As an internationally recognised investment art specialist, James is the Art Critic for London Live TV as well as an art contributor to an extensive range of international publications television programmes.  

Since his appointment as British Airways’ resident art expert four years ago – a distinguished position within the global art world – James has featured in all of BA’s long-haul, in-flight programmes. 

He is also a patron of both The Royal Academy of Arts and The National Portrait Gallery.

James is also the Art Editor for The Player – one of the most exclusive bookazine’s available to some of the wealthiest individuals around the world. Whether behind or in front of the camera, James’ expert knowledge of art covers diverse genres and ranges from old masters, such as Caravaggio, to present day artists such as Banksy.

His ability to analyse changing art market trends has enabled James to successfully source up-and-coming artists, help them launch their careers and become highly sought-after – such as with the notable Bradley Theodore. He has built and nurtured strong relationships with art dealers, auction houses and art institutions that enable him to establish the origins and value of the artworks he acquires, and provide clients looking to start or build an art collection with the very best counsel.

James carefully designs an annual programme of visually spectacular, engaging and relevant modern art for Maddox Gallery. For more information on our current exhibition please see our virtual tour section.
