Alongside these sales for the Fine Jewels auction, galleries have been transformed in a collaboration with JJ Martin of Milan-based print label La Double J, in show-stopping takeover of sumptuous fabrics, wall hangings and patterned floors that bring the rooms to life in a riot of vibrant colour and texture. Lending her inimitable eye to the design and identity of the London galleries, Martin’s reinvention of the space is a technicolour feast for the senses, that provides the backdrop for works from Modern and Contemporary African Art Online, Fine Jewels Online and 20th Century Art / Middle East Online.
