An innovative concept for all aspiring and ambitious artists.

DEBUT CONTEMPORARY is an innovative concept for all aspiring and ambitious artists, showcasing the best of British creative talent across all art disciplines. Dubbed as “Kingmakers” (International Life Magazine) of creative talent, “London’s Top Tastemakers” (Time Out) and “One of the UK’s Most Powerful Couples in Fashion & Art” (The Times Magazine), husband and wife duo Samir Ceric and Zoe Knight, the “high profile couple” (Drapers Records) behind the launch of Wolf & Badger, Salon Contemporary (including Artist of the Week, Curator of the Month and Best of British competitions) and First Wednesdays, is now launching Debut Contemporary. Having already discovered some of the big names amongst emerging contemporary artists and fashion and jewellery designers in the last few years, the newly designed gallery space on Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill, opened on Wednesday, 2 March 2011, with a special launch party.

Debut Contemporary provides an affordable exhibition and mentoring platform from £95-£145 a week for all talented emerging artists to showcase and sell their artworks where they will be introduced to collectors, art professionals and businesses. The licence fee will entail exhibition space, an 80% net profit from all sales facilitated by the gallery, be it for a piece of art or a commercial deal and most importantly guidance and mentoring by a team of industry professionals. Artists will be prepared with a business savvy mind whilst they maintain their artistic freedom and creative licence.

Debut Contemporary and its founders will continue to promote the legacy of two artists who have had residencies as deceased artists at 82 Westbourne Grove in the past couple of years, Jennie and Jessie Gunhammar. Both artists will remain honorary members in residence of DEBUT Contemporary and all of the sales of their work will go to the JENNIE & JESSIE GUNHAMMAR LUPUS TRUST CHARITY, affiliated with the St Thomas’s Lupus Trust, enhancing and raising awareness of Lupus illness as well as acting as a base platform for the Charity through Art. The JENNIE & JESSIE GUNHAMMAR LUPUS TRUST CHARITY has been set up by Jennie’s long term partner and a successful architect Andrew Clinch.
