GNYP Art Advisory has been established in 2012 in Berlin. We assist collectors in building tailor-made high-quality collections of post-war and contemporary art and are happy to guide them, if so wished, through the expanding international art world. We recognize how important collectors’ role has been in creating fertile ground for art to be made, seen and thrive.

Working with both, established post-war but also emerging artists, we understand that future cannot do without the past and realize that art history is redefined through the present. Thanks to cooperation with many excellent galleries, auction houses and private collectors worldwide we are able to get access to the most relevant art of our time. Over the past years we have added outstanding works to collections of our clients by artists such as Lee Krasner, Robert Motherwell, Thomas Schütte, Georg Baselitz, Anselm Kiefer, Jack Whitten, Robert Rauschenberg, Sean Scully, Wolfgang Tillmans, Do Ho Suh, Clarie Tabouret, Gina Beavers, Carmen Herrera, Rose Wylie and many others. As we offer a discreet and personal service to our clients you won’t find the images of the mediated works on our website.
