The Timothy Taylor Gallery Review

The Timothy Taylor Gallery is located in the one of the most prestigious areas of London: Mayfair. The world-renowned, British art dealer has opted for a simple gallery space of 4 white walls, which allows the art to speak for itself. Known for his natural flair for art, over the past 20 years Taylor has exhibited a multi-generational inventory of world famous artists. Taylor opened his 1st London gallery space in 1996 at Bruton Place in Mayfair. In 2007 he moved the gallery to its current location in Carlos Place, and there is talk of Taylor relocating again soon. One would imagine he will remain in the Mayfair area. In 2016, he launched his first New York gallery, extending his love of art across the pond.

A visit to the Timothy Taylor gallery is purely for the art, most definitely not for the architecture, as is often the additional reason behind many other gallery visits around London. Taylor’s gallery is a big white room and that’s it, allowing the art to do the talking.

Currently on exhibition until mid-July is Ding Yi’s first solo exhibition in London, featuring seven huge pieces of art, which have never been seen before. Ding Yi is one of China’s most prominent contemporary artists working today. His abstract art is a commentary on the socio-political developments of modern day China.

Visitors to the gallery should keep an eye on the website for the ever-changing and exciting schedule of artists. The gallery is open from Tuesday to Friday 10am–6pm, Saturday 11am–5pm, Monday by appointment only.
