24. Howard and Penny Chambers

 Howard and Penny chambers have been collecting art for over 25 years. Their collection consists of 250 pieces (or more) of paintings and sculptures. They used to collect contemporary Russian art, however now it is mainly much contemporary western. They purchase works from Martin Grelle, Gerald Balciar, and William Acheff, as they are good friends with these artists. Once in awhile Howard and Penny will collect artwork from deceased artists.

When looking to purchase a painting they take their time, and find artists that will work with them. They like to deal with artists directly and make deals with them in order to get a piece they like. For instance, they landscaped Gerry Balciar’s new home, and in return he is doing a marble buffalo sculpture for them. They know what they want, but can’t always afford it.







25. Pierre Chen

 CEO of Yageo Corporation, the tall, slim and always a classy dresser Pierre Chen shares the honors with Barry Lam of Quanta as the most sophisticated art connoisseur in the Taiwanese business community.

From entrepreneur to a savviest art collector, Pierre Chen has put a considerable effort into his art collecting. He does lots of homework, and asks for opinions from a lot of artists before buying a painting.

One of Pierre Chen’s collections, Tamsui, an oil painting by Japanese-period Taiwanese artist Chen Cheng-po fetched $4.5 million (NT$144 million), setting the latest world record for a ‘NT $100 million’ purchase of an oil painting by an ethnic Chinese artist.
