A 24-year-old London-born, US-based collector plans to open a 4,000 sq. ft gallery in Tribeca this autumn, specialising in contemporary art from the Middle East. Taymour Grahne (left) will represent artists such as Tarek Al-Ghoussein (Kuwait), Mohammed Kazem (United Arab Emirates) and Camille Zakharia (Bahrain). “I will deal in the primary market, working directly with the artists,” Grahne says. He hopes that his new gallery, which is funded by his parents, will help to establish a market for his artists in the US.
