Canada-born, London-based art adviser Ariane Belisle, who specialises in post-war and contemporary art, set up AIB with the primary aim of ‘leveraging emerging artists and art with a primary focus on new collectors who may not know where to start,’ she explains. She offers the full range of art advisory services from buying, selling and collection management to shipping, valuation, framing and organising collateral loans. Since completing her MA in curating at the Courtauld, Belisle has been on a steep upward trajectory — she was poached from her first job at Sotheby’s by a property investment giant to manage his £70 million art collection. ‘I was incredibly lucky to get this dream role early in my career,’ she says.
