A discussion with Tyrome Tripoli of Gallery Petite
Since its opening, the gallery—which is located on a street in Bushwick—has proven to be enormously successful and popular with location artists. “If I wanted to, I could organize a different solo show every month without repeating an artist for five years,” Tyrome declared. “But I’m not going to do that until I know I will sell the work. Of course, I don’t have an exclusive with these artists but I know if I have a buyer for their work they will sell through me. I’m in the process of making a list of my top fifty artists.” The gallery is very public and features a spectacular entrance that aims to get the attention of people passing by.
In ten years from now, Tyrome is hopeful that Gallery Petite will have a waiting list of under writers/patrons who have witnessed the magic of the service that he provides, which is to create art lover investors where there were none. Tyrome aims to convert people who have no art background or experience but an interest and the funds for an exploration investment into the underground art, the bottom end of the market, the penny stocks but better. Cultivating new art collectors who support and grow the demand of under-recognized artists is the ultimate goal of Tyrome.
Gallery Petite is currently planning a show concentrating on art that is inspired by fantasy. To read about their forthcoming exhibitions and events, visit their official website.
