Art shows you another world, which continues to surprise.
Modern art is the common theme running through Anita Helmy’s life. At the age of 12, a Dalí exhibition made a deep impression on her, after which she went to the Saturday academy for art education. Art Academy followed, but Anita went her own way during the financial crisis in the early 80s. Along with a few fellow artists, she opened a gallery with exhibitions at home and abroad. They wanted to use this as a springboard to bring art back into the spotlight. Since then she has continued to view and create art.
With so much knowledge of art, it has become an almost tangible part of Anita. In assessing lots for the Catawiki art auction, she sometimes goes by her gut instinct. Because while a big name like Escher is always nice, the work of an unknown artist can also be interesting. Anita also maintains good relationships with her suppliers. She provides varied auctions every week, with lots that excite both collectors and enthusiasts.
