Where Art and Business Meet


Where Art and Business Meet

Joseph Klibansky proffers a powerful contemporary message and is one of the Netherlands’ highest sell-ing modern artists. In November last year, he opened a brand store on a high-end shopping street for a limited six months. The store gathered a lot of attention as an example of success for the art business. After studying business, Klibansky felt artists should not only have a talent for art but also the ability to pioneer new methods to sell their artwork. This young contemporary artist’s tenacity and ability to scale his business upward have earned him a reputation as the father of a new phase of art, stirring up the Dutch art scene.
