New Qatari investment announced for Lazarides gallery

9 February 2016

Steve Lazarides' disruptive activity within the notoriously elitist art sector has attracted many sympathizers. Today, he announces a partnership with an art lover of a similar mindset. In Lazarides' own words, "We may be an odd couple, but we approach art from the same perspective and have a common goal for the future of the gallery".

Wissam Al Mana is a prolific art collector and a strong supporter of the style and manner in which Lazarides has done business. His support prompts a paradigm shift in the gallery's ambitions.

Qatari-born Al Mana is the owner of an eponymous conglomerate operating various activities, from real estate to retail, in eight countries. Aged 40, Wissam was raised and educated in London where he discovered his love for fashion and design after working Saturday jobs in boutiques on King's Road from the tender age of 14.

The partnership has been facilitated by Pierre Lussato of Skylar Group. "Pierre is a rare commodity in the world of finance", says Lazarides. "He understands the nuances of contemporary art and shares the same vision as myself and Wissam".

With the operational and financial backing of the Qatari businessman, the evolution of Lazarides' business will be significant.
