The ART SYMBOL gallery was founded in 1999 by Richard and Bruno Mastey on the prestigious Place des Vosges in the Marais district in Paris.
Passionate collectors and experienced art brokers and advisors since 1994, Richard and Bruno Mastey specialize in figurative and abstract contemporary art and now have two galleries on the Place des Vosges, each offering distinct artistic visions and sensibilities.
The ART SYMBOL galleries promote and distribute their exclusive artists in France and abroad, exhibiting at major contemporary art fairs each year in Europe, the US and Asia.
“Following the development of our artists and sharing this emotion provides a source of enrichment and is the aim of our work.” Preferential relations with each artist have made the ART SYMBOL galleries a convivial place for cultural exchanges where major figures of the international landscape are often met, especially at preview showings.
Since 2002, Richard and Bruno Mastey have also devoted themselves to corporate philanthropy with the assistance and advice of companies for acquiring artworks, as well as the publication of works through EDITIONS ART SYMBOL
Richard and Bruno Mastey provide you with all the services you have the right to expect when you acquire an artwork: 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 who stand apart from fashions and the media and are present worldwide in public collections, corporations, private foundations and museums.
