Raymond was brought-up in an environment of antiquities and 19th century art.
As an entrepreneur he acquired an interest in contemporary art early on. In 2013 Wanders associated himself with the ‘Galerie zur grünen Tür’ in Uznach (Switzerland), a move that established his definitive entry in the world of art and galleries.
“Art collecting is a true passion and it was by no means easy to build up an interesting collection with limited means. I do enjoy helping beginning collectors bij providing beautiful but affordable art. On the other hand of course, we strive to always a number of exclusive art works of famous artists that will attract collectors from all over the Netherlands and beyond.”

Melvin comes from a family of gallery owners and has the gallery business and passion for art running through his veins.
“Art has to be beautiful and spectacular. I have been in this business for 19 years and every day I am moved and surprised by art.
I have worked in the Dutch cities of The Hague, Oisterwijk, Den Bosch and Vught, amongst others for the two largest galleries of Holland. Thanks to the large network I have built up in the past we can now work with all these huge names and talents.
Rotterdam may potentially be the art capital of the Netherlands, but no gallery of our scope and ambitions has been established there. But now we have, and hopefully others will follow.
The Veerhaven area may just become our country's new art hub. We have made the first step towards that.”
