Heidi Lee Komaromi, AAA
“Heidi has guided clients in building first-class international collections of contemporary art.” -Michael Gitlitz, Marlborough Gallery Director
New York-based art advisor, Heidi Lee Komaromi has 17 years of experience in the art world building and maintaining collections for individuals, estates and Fortune 500 companies. In 2002, she founded HLK Art Group servicing clients on all aspects of collection management (ie. art acquisitions, curation, cataloguing, market analysis and logistics coordination). Selected clients include UBS, JP Morgan Chase, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, Capital Group, Exxon, A.T. Kearney, Soho House and The Standard Hotel.
Over the years, Heidi has acquired and evaluated over three thousand works of Contemporary and Modern art from emerging and established artists such as Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Damien Hirst, Ellsworth Kelly and Mark Rothko, among many others. Having dealt extensively with the art market, she has an encyclopedic knowledge of art and a keen ability to source and evaluate fine art objects.
She was Director at Artnet, the world’s largest art data company and Director of Waterhouse & Dodd, a 30 year old British gallery. Prior to that, Heidi founded EditionedArt, the first online gallery to sell a curated selection of limited editions by contemporary artists. Recently, she was Lead Curator for Twyla, an e-commerce site funded by Silicon Valley investors GV, Redpoint and IVP.
Heidi holds a master’s degree from Christie’s Education and is a USPAP qualified art appraiser.
