Maddox Gallery brings London's Mayfair street art to the West Coast
Maddox Gallery, the cutting-edge London based group of galleries, has opened its first North American gallery space in the heart of West Hollywood in Los Angeles.
A grand opening celebration was held in October 2018 and features a collection of works by artists from the “Best of British” exhibition, among them Banksy, Dan Baldwin, Mark Events, and Damien Hirst.
The launch of the new space is led by the gallery’s creative director, Petra Ecclestone, a long-time art collector and sister-in-law of Maddox Group creative director, Jay Rutland. Ecclestone will lead the gallery alongside her partner, British entrepreneur, Sam Palmer.
Special guests from the grand opening included Robert Downey Jr., Mohammed Hadid and Shiva Safai, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Specialty cocktails were provided by Guillotine Vodka.
