I Am More Drawn by Texture than Color

I Am More Drawn by Texture than Color

In his 30s, with a background in real estate, Alex Shalavi is building up his art collection that centers around minimalist or abstract works by artists of his generation. He endeavours to build a collection that is “more than just a sum of its parts”.
LARRY’S LIST has the pleasure to chat with Alex Shalavi to understand more why he focuses on artists of his generation; how a Graham Collins tint painting took him out of his comfort zone; what are always on his San Francisco January art calendar; as well as his vision to show his collection publicly and build a small foundation in the upcoming five years.
