David Gill Gallery
David Gill is a pioneering gallerist of 20th Century and contemporary design who has been working with leading contemporary architects, artists and designers on edition pieces and unique private commissions around the world for over 25 years. Gill broke new ground in championing the work of designers who have now become world famous, and represents Zaha Hadid, Mattia Bonetti, Gaetano Pesce, Barnaby Barford and Fredrikson Stallard.
Starting his career as an expert in contemporary art and design at Christie’s, Gill opened his first gallery on Fulham Road in 1987. It was regarded as an audacious move to exhibit 20th Century art and design within an area of London best known for antiques and traditional art. However, the new gallery was immediately popular with enthusiastic collectors of contemporary work who flocked to support this bold new venture. His latest gallery in St James's, London, demonstrates the significant role he has played in changing the status and perception of contemporary design internationally.
In addition to the impressive portfolio of artists, architects and designers whom he regularly exhibits, Gill has the trust of collectors who come to him for advice and knowledge on how best to invest in contemporary work. In spring 2012, David Gill Galleries’ inaugural exhibition featured work by Zaha Hadid including the table ‘Liquid Glacial’ which was nominated for a Design of the Year Award, 2013, by the Design Museum, London.
David Gill has been honoured both with the Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts & des Lettres and as Officier of the Ordre des Arts & des Lettres – recognition by the French government of his important contribution to the worlds of art and design.
