SIMON DE PURY: BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE AMAZING

By LINA LORNA
Most of us might have gotten to know him on Bravo's series called, Work of Art: prominent Art Auctioneer and Co-founder and Chairman of Phillips de Pury, Simon De Pury (pictured left), will be one of the judges for Wallpaper's Design Awards, this year.


"Last year, I've seen a move-away from a certain type of collecting, which is all one type of design, one specific period, one type of artist. We are in a time, when we like mixing things again." The dashing art expert notes on his profile video (via Wallpaper) his keen observations about the state of art-collecting, as of recent.  But perhaps one of the best recommendations Monsieur de Pury has to offer is his infamous advice to his art proteg√©s on the show: "Be bold! Be Brave! Be Amazing!" Have a watch at his short-talk (featured above), and learn about his picks when it comes to the architecture of the year, designer of the year, and domestic design of the year, as well as the complementary images (featured below) of de Pury's selections.
