The initial project between Artwise and the international law firm Skadden Arps Meagher and Flom LLP, in collaboration with its internal art team, consisted of installing a series of contemporary artworks that would humanise its offices and create talking points for both visitors and staff. Works were selected and acquired by international artists that would echo the firm’s international clientele, while at the same time establish a cutting-edge collection. As the law firm developed, so did the collection; together, the two moved from one building in Canary Wharf to another, and together they expanded. The relationship has developed into an ongoing programme that helps highlight and further the brand's contemporary awareness.
The collection includes works by the following artists: John Bellany, Adrian Berg, Alan Brooks, Patrick Caulfield, Peter Doig, Martin Greenland, Paul Huxley, Paul Morrison, Julian Opie, Victor Pasmore, Robert Platt, Jane Prophet and Gino Severini.
