Greg Bloch has a career spanning five decades in the fine art business. Greg has amassed a significant and notable collection of 19th Century prints and drawings. This important collection has been on loan to several museums. He has represented and managed exhibitions for the Argillet Family’s Salvador Dali collection in the United States, for over a decade.
Greg’s global career has taken him from California, to Hawaii, South Africa, Connecticut, New York and most recently Chicago. Greg began his career in the art world upon completion of his degree and masters work at Whittier College in Whittier, CA.
Greg started his first significant business ventures over the course of ten years in Hawaii as the Founder and President of Images International of Hawaii and The Island Gallery in the world-famous and legendary Halekulani Hotel. The group of companies focused on artist representation and publishing.
Greg’s next move was to Chicago in 1987 as the National Sales Director for Circle Fine Art which consisted of 42 art galleries throughout the US. In this role, he also ran a significant wholesale art publishing sector of the company. He then became Executive Director of Merrill Chase Galleries, which was one of the most successful commercial gallery operations in the country.
After his corporate roles Greg returned to his entrepreneurial roots and became Founder and President of Triad Art Group, a global leader in artist representation, and as a fine art broker. Greg has successfully led the development and expansion of Triad’s reach since 1992 which includes forming two ancillary companies, Triad Art Group Publishing and Wynnewood Arts in 1995 and 1996, respectively.
“I have access to art and artists from around the world, which I then share with my clients, and help broaden options while at the same time creating a more intimate experience with the sometimes-intimidating art world. People generally own their art longer than the home it is in, so it should be something they truly love.”
Hope believes that art has no rules and can only enhance an interior. As an art consultant, Hope works one on one with clients, sourcing from Triad Art Group’s world class collection, to help create a unique and personal story through art.
