Descripción del Profesional del arte
Since embarking in the New York art world in the early 1990ʼs, Lio Malca has specialized in secondary market works by Contemporary and Modern Masters. In 1994, operating as Malca Fine Art, Lio started to show part of his young collection of work by Jean-Michel Basquiat with the exhibition called ʻTwo Centsʼ; becoming a key player in establishing his early market. ʻTwo Centsʼ was a traveling show viewed in many different colleges through out the United States from 1994 until 1997, and it included works by Basquiat and selected poems by Kevin Young.In 1997, simultaneously to the Keith Haring retrospective at the Whitney Museum in New York, Lio produced the show ʻIn Your Faceʼ. This show took place in a townhouse across from the museum, including works of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf. Lio inaugurated, with these 3 artists, what would become his specialty for the next decade ... and beyond. The success of the show allowed it to travel to Japan to be exhibited at the Kirin Plaza, Osaka. He has since become a key lender and advisor to Basquiat and Haring exhibitions in the United States, Italy, France, Spain, Cuba, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, South Africa, and elsewhere. Tothis day, estates, museums, and auction houses seek out for his opinion on the value, authenticity, and provenance of Basquiat and Haring artwork. As he contributed to the markets of Basquiat, Haring, and Scharf, Lio Malca continued to invest in emerging markets throughout the 1990ʼs, working closely with established art dealers and galleries, and supporting artists directly. Lio recognized the talent of some of today’s worldwide-recognized artists at a very early stage of their careers, Vik Muniz among them. In the last decade, Lio has created an eclectic art collection that comprises a wide range of artists: from the 80ʼs until todayʼs most current, cutting edge and progressive artists to be found – Brody Condon, Evan Penny, Hung Chi Peng, Mark Ryden, selected artists from the Royal Art Lodge Group and others. In 2006, Lio moved his business from Soho to the heart of the Chelsea art district, and opened a 3,000 square-foot private gallery under the name LIO MALCA. The new gallery showcases the work of a carefully selected roster of Modern and Contemporary Masters, among we can name Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, George Condo, Kenny Scharf, Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Roy Lichtenstein, Yayoi Kusama, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and, Nobuyoshi Araki. As a whole, LIO MALCAʼs program, as well as his collection, is socially progressive and visually commanding, with an international scope. Finally, in June of 2015 opened La Nave Salinas an exhibition space in Ibiza showcases museum quality works from his personal collection.
