We are pleased to welcome you to W&S Art Consultants
We offer an innovative bespoke personal service provided by people highly knowledgeable about the art of Brazil, and in particular that of Bahia. Our mission is to promote awareness of the rich variety of artistic talent found in Bahia, by establishing a curated on-line gallery recognized as a leading authority on the artistic works of Bahia.
In addition to representing leading artists from Bahia, we have a proven track record of successfully handling the sale of Brazilian artworks for private collectors.
The gallery is operated by Simon Wilkes and Nola Senna.
