About Gilles Dyan
Mr. Dyan opened his first gallery in 1994 in Singapore and shortly after, his second gallery in the prestigious Saint-Honoré in Paris. His vision was to extend the reach of European emerging and established artists outside the boundaries of France to distant markets such as Asia and the Middle East.
His innovative approach viewed the gallery as a melting pot where emerging and established artists could coexist in the same space. The gallery developed an open door policy, welcoming a variety of artists in the fields of painting, sculpture, installation, and new media. Under his direction the gallery collection gradually frew to include over 100 international artists. With the help of wealthy collectors and business people with an invested interest in art, Gilles Dyan started an art fund that injected further funds to the gallery group, allowing the masterpiece collection to grow. Today, each gallery has a dedicated black room, showcasing exceptional works by the likes of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso.
