Wissam Al Mana's Biography
"When I entered the Lazarides Gallery in 2015, I felt provocation in art, something I had yet to experience on such a scale. I was struck by the visceral feel of the pieces and knew from then that I wanted to be part of Steve’s vision.
A merchant at heart and the executive director of Al Mana Group, I hope my experience in retail and commerce will create new opportunities for LAZinc, whilst respecting the culture and values of art.
You need to love art to succeed in its development and to share its voice. I love art. I am a collector of art and the owner of a gallery that prides itself on allowing artists to express and encourage their movement. Bringing new talent to the world of art excites me, and representing the finest profiles in street and contemporary art evokes a real sense of pride. This is what defines our vision.
As a proud Qatari and adopted Londoner (I have lived in this great city for forty years), I look forward to taking LAZinc to the next level."
