Quantum Contemporary Art was launched in London in 1997 in a converted Victorian laundry in Battersea, south west London, where our gallery is still based.

The Quantum  team consists of Johnny Gorman, Tara Williams and Amelia Durie.

Our mission is to bring original contemporary art to a wider public.

We represent 30 artists, who work in a wide variety of styles….

It is the place for identifying young, emerging talent still at affordable prices. The Independent newspaper called us the  “patron of young up-and-coming artists” while the Financial Times described us as “fun, hip and friendly”!

To find our artists we scour the art colleges, exhibitions, studios and artists’ collectives all over Great Britain. We look for visually exciting, innovative and collectable work by talented young professional or emerging artists. All artwork is carefully considered before bringing it to you via our gallery, online, at Quantum exhibitions and at art fairs.

We participate in art fairs all over the world including London, Singapore, Miami, Toronto, Hong Kong,  Seattle, Zurich, Boston, San Francisco and New York.

We have extensive experience of working with corporate clients and interior decorators. We are happy to advise clients on building an art collection and frequently undertake commissioned work such as portraiture and murals.

Clients are welcome to borrow artwork on approval. We also operate a payment by instalment plan.

We offer free delivery in the UK.
