Nothing says you’ve arrived as a collector like putting art all over your own island. In 2015, this 66-year-old Parisian wealth manager plans to open an exhibition space on the French Riviera island of Porquerolles.
He plans to showcase some of the 200 works he has purchased over the past two decades by heavyweights like Basquiat and Warhol. He also plans to show off his extensive photography collections. It awards an annual prize for photojournalism and has great examples from Martin Parr and Anne Deniau, of which “Unfallen Angels” is shown.
Why run one private art space when you can have two? The 41-year-old Bangkok law professor and property developer reigns supreme on the Thai collector scene, including holding exhibitions at his exhibition spaces in Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
Mr Chansiri mixes Western art stars like Barnaby Furnas and Dana Schutz with Thai favorites like Navin Rawanchaikul and Montien Boonma, whose temple-like 1995 work, “Nature’s Breath, Arokhasan” is featured.
The 38-year-old entrepreneur and his wife, Valeria, live in Rome but recently bought a second home in West Hollywood, just to be closer to their favorite Los Angeles artists like Stephen G. Rhodes.
A proponent of artistic cross-pollination, Mr. Barzan uses his six-year-old art foundation, Depart, to organize exhibitions in Los Angeles of Italian artists like Pietro Ruffo. He also helped introduce American artist Sterling Ruby to Italy. His Darren Bader concept salad, “Fruits, Vegetables”, is presented at the American Academy in Rome.

Collectors who live in off-the-radar regions like Central America can still wield considerable influence. After this 46-year-old property developer from San Jose, Costa Rica, began praising a local art space, TEOR/éTica, London’s Tate perked up and now the two institutions are collaborating on an art project.
Mr Rosenstock, who also sits on the Tate’s Latin American Acquisitions Committee, started 14 years ago collecting Costa Rican artists like Federico Herrero, but has since expanded to global stars like Vietnam’s Danh Vo. , Teresa Margolles from Mexico, Loris Gréaud from Paris and New Jill Magid from York, whose neon text, “I Can Burn your Face: Miranda III”, is shown here.
