At TSIVRIKOS SHAKE, we are committed to trailblazing a unique path to a more transparent, egalitarian and engaging art experience. One that values equality over exclusivity. One that values a personal journey of education, inspiration and discovery. We view diversity as strength, and essential to leveraging the rapid growth of the global art market on behalf of our clients. We believe in innovation over status quo.
We are reimagining the very idea of what it means to be a gallery that serves the evolving needs of contemporary culture. And we are authoring new chapters to the story of an energized marketplace, one that serves as a virtuous cycle for artists, collectors and the next generation of art-world leaders.
TSIVRIKOS SHAKE (formally Neon Gallery) began as an idea between two colleagues who were on different sides of the art market. Dimitrios Tsivrikos and Christopher Shake met in 2016 during a business transaction in which Dimitrios was an art advisor and Chris was a gallery director, and over the years, they continued to work together in this capacity. It was in 2019, while participating in Art Basel Miami, that the two realised they shared a common unease with the current state of the art market and a desire to do things differently…to reimagine the very essence of what it means to be an art gallery. Six months later, the gallery was born, on the premise of redefining the art-acquisition journey and delivering to their clients the experience that they, themselves, were craving: greater transparency, education, and exciting cultural experieces.
We are committed to transparency, to education, and to empowering artists to grow, develop and realise their creative potential. We engage the full potential of the global art marketplace on behalf of our collectors. We are working every day to demystify the art world and create a secure and informed environment in which to discover, create, and invest with confidence.
