The Exceptional World of Lester Marks


Last Friday I had the amazing opportunity to attend a cocktail party at the residence of Lester Marks, listed by ARTnews magazine as one of the “Top 200 Collectors in the World,” by Art & Antiques magazine as one of the “Top 100 Collectors,” and as “One of the Top 100 Collectors Changing the Art World.”

As soon as I walked into his extraordinary house I immediately felt the presence of all the world-renowned artists' souls cohabiting inside this exceptional world created by Mr. Marks. 

Sculptures, paintings, photographs, and installations whispering to each other in a way that can only be described as surreal. As I listened to Lester talk about his breathtaking contemporary art collection, I felt as if I was suddenly transported back in time to that moment in history in which the pieces of art were created. 

Thanks so much to Lester Marks for sharing his journey through art with us and with the world, to his adorable wife for opening the doors of her house to us, and to the masterminds behind this unforgettable experience, Forma 110.
