We are Chippy Coates and Richard Scarry life partners and business partners for Coates and Scarry. In 2009 we started blogging about art and artists who inspire us from around the world. Within a couple of years the fan base for our blog had grown dramatically and after dozens of requests from Facebook fans and followers to showcase some of the incredibly talented artist we started to exhibit and sell artworks.
Starting with a local exhibition in Bristol in 2010 we now exhibit internationally at art fairs and have collaborated with museums and other galleries pulling together resources and experience to provide a platform for ground breaking shows.
If you're looking for advice on how to buy fine art we're here to help. Whether you are an established collector or newcomer, looking to acquire a single work or build a collection, to buy fine art is always exciting, engaging and rewarding. The key is to get involved, make contacts, build relationships and, above all, look, look, look - go to shows, visit art fairs, galleries and open studios, attend openings, get on mailing lists, peruse auction catalogues and, books you can’t see enough art!
