If you’ve ever wanted the CEO of the Saatchi Gallery to curate your art wall, now is your chance. The latest online service from some of the biggest names in the art and interior industry has launched today, April 26th – and it will revolutionize our modern homes.
Curated by the former Saatchi Gallery CEO, Nigel Hurst, Art Gazette, is an art market disruptor that has made the process of buying art simpler for all designers and homeowners. It also supports artists across the globe – in case we needed any more reason to get involved.
Art Gazette offers pieces from exclusive artists, alongside an expert service that sees contemporary curators work with individuals to choose a series of rare and original artworks that bring your vision, design ideas, color palette, and interiors to life. The pieces are curated to improve your interior space, whether it is your bedroom, living room, or office.

Alongside Nigel Hurst, entrepreneur and philanthropist Martin Epstein and curator Morné Visagie are among the Art Gazette team who oversee the installation of artworks in the room to ensure a fully customized experience.
From today, Art Gazette’s catalog includes a vast, diverse collection of media, from paintings to photographs, sculptures, and textiles. Featured artists include works from Alice Wilson, Lebogang Mabusela and Clemente Vergara, and Lakin Ogunbanwo, among others. Prospective buyers are encouraged to register their interest via the new web platform; they will be contacted by Art Gazette to begin the process of a fully personalized art gallery home.
Need any more convincing? As co-founder Nigel Hurst suggests, there is no better time to support creatives, as ‘the past year has been unimaginably challenging for artists around the world.’ The new service is a ‘viable, alternative revenue stream at a time when many artists are struggling to make ends meet.’
Nigel continues: ‘As we begin to emerge into a post-Covid world, it is critical that the visual arts sector continues to innovate and create new opportunities for artists and buyers. A lesson we’ve all learned during the past year or so is that the environments we find ourselves in each day matter. Through Art Gazette, we are connecting artists with those who wish to acquire and display their work, be it in public or private, and in doing so help create more beautiful, creative spaces for people to live, work, and play in.’
What more could we ever need? We have a feeling our homes are about to get even more creative and colorful.
