Our first review: Great Chelsea galleries and tour guide in New York
Feb 2020
“Peter is extremely intelligent and passionate on the subject of Contemporary Art as well as Film and Philosophy. He’s a great person to visit galleries with for an afternoon in Chelsea He is well read, and incredibly savvy with his perspective on the contemporary art world without being pretentious while sharing his insights and in-depth knowledge. I think you could enjoy his tour as an art expert or like myself - a newbie to the contemporary art world scene. I am a New Yorker who isn’t super entrenched in this world so I wanted more knowledge of it. He helped guide me to all the gréât galleries in Chelsea, Manhattan and gave me a tutorial on the world from many perspectives. I saw great art too. He’s a thoughtful creative companion to guide you through the NY art scene. Highly recommend this tour and would definitely do it again” - Kirsten
