Michael Mancuso founded Mickys Art in 2014, which stemmed from his own love and excitement for the world of art. Michael (Micky) wanted to bridge the gap between buyers and artists, and artists and buyers alike. And so Mickys Art was born for that purpose. In his own words, “people can go missing in the art world if no one is showcasing them”. Micky has been curating his personal art collection for over 15 years, giving him a deep understanding of the process of buying art as a timeless investment. His extensive knowledge on investments not only holds a space in the art world, as is he also Co-founder and Director of a leading financial investment firm. In essence, Micky brings experience in the realm of both art and investment to ensure Mickys Art and their buyers invest correctly, in art that retains its longevity over time.
