ART CONSULTANTS WITH A PASSION FOR EMERGING ARTISTS
Our goal to amplify the voices of black artists, women artists and the underrepresented
in the "traditional" art space.
With backgrounds in fashion design and the music industry, Tina Tangalakis and Chris Lakey have always had a passion for art. After collecting for over a decade they decided to create an art consulting firm that focused on what matters to them.
Tina studied at California Institute of the Arts and continued on to have a successful career in fashion. She created several high-profile partnerships including Apple, Bloomingdales, Vans and Urban Outfitters. Her design work took her to Ghana, West Africa, where she fell in love with the people, culture and art. Her connection to Ghana and West Africa is a driving force behind her consulting.
Chris studied at the University of Southern California and went on to become an executive in the music industry. His passions include discovering new musicians, artists and restaurants. Chris diversifies their consulting with a love for street art and the abstract.
Chris and Tina pride themselves on building personal relationships with the artists and clients they work with. They believe art is a way to share experiences, break barriers and tell stories.
