Maddox Arts is a gallery of contemporary art founded in 2007. It is based in Mayfair, behind Claridge's hotel in the West End of London, at 52 Brook's Mews. The gallery fosters some of the new and emerging artists both in the UK and internationally and also promotes the work of established artists. Maddox Arts has a varied portfolio of Latin-American art including Argentinean collective, Mondongo and Venezuelan artist, Cipriano Martinez to name a few.
Maddox Arts first opened in September 2007, with the group show 'Irrational Exuberance'. The original owners were David Gonzalez and Juan Manuel Gonzalez Mantero, two financiers who originally founded the gallery on Maddox Street, later moving to a busier location on Brook's Mews. In 2008 the Gallery was sold to Mario Palencia, who maintained the gallery location, name and identity which had already been established with some ambitious and varied shows from international artists. Maddox Arts exhibits International Contemporary Art, with artists from all over the globe.
Maddox Arts Gallery exhibitions include shows curated by James Putnam such as 'Viva Lolita' in 2008; a show inspired by Vladimir Nabokov's iconic novel, Lolita, which brought together eighteen international contemporary artists such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Trevor Brown, Nick Ruston, Charlotte Beaudry, Nazif Topcuoglu and Young British Artist, Mat Collishaw. Other shows include 'Weight for the Showing' curated by Paul Carey-Kent presenting the works of Richard Serra, Phyllida Barlow, Christian Jankowski, Richard Schur, Nicolas Feldmeyer amongst others.
