Chris Pensa

Founder & Director, Love Art London

Chris Pensa is the Founder and Director of Love Art London, an organisation that provides its members with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the art world. Formerly an auctioneer and British Art expert with Sotheby's in London, Chris spent many years getting to know the art world inside out. Now he uses his connections to open up pockets of the art world rarely seen by the public to a new generation of young collectors and art lovers aiming to venture off the beaten track.

With access to a wide network of artists, studios, galleries, private collections and places most people don't even know exist, Love Art London has quickly become the London's leading independent arts club. Chris is also a consultant arts adviser to Culture24, the official cultural information provider to the BBC, currently focusing on Museums at Night 2012.
