Every two months we'll be asking invited curators to choose a selection of works from Mall Galleries' online gallery, Buy Art Buy Now.

Our curators are artists, collectors or art professionals and their choices give us an insight not just into the works they have chosen, but how art lovers build collections.  

We start with selections by Mall Galleries Director and seasoned art collector Lewis McNaught, New English Art Club member Louise Balaam and Londonist Art Critic Tabish Khan. In the following blog posts they talk about looking for the stamp of an artist’s personality in a painting, turning traditional subjects in a contemporary manner and being drawn to painterly qualities.

Learning about different ways of seeing art broadens our own perspectives and sheds new light on artists we know well.  We hope that by following these selections both through the Buy Art | Buy Now category of this blog and on Buy Art | Buy Now itself, you will discover new artists and gain inspiration for your own art collection.
