About Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, A Word from the Founder:
"My love for art was passed on to me by my grand-mother and my mother. Both avid collectors,
they instilled in me great admiration for the old masters, endless curiosity for the new and an
insatiable appetite for the treasure hunt. Our house in Bonn, Germany, was always open to
artists. There were visits to painters’ studios, trips to museums and constant art talk at the dinner
table. I didn’t develop a formal education in art, I developed an instinct and a passion for it at a
very young age. After graduating from Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, I went on to work
as a financial analyst for Ernst & Young as well as The Hyatt Corporation and observed
how trends move and impact our increasingly fast-paced society. During that time, I kept very
close ties with the art community, hosting private events in the US and Europe. And as the art
world became more dynamic, I found myself wanting to follow my own aesthetic compass and
explore the incredible potential for renewal and audacity offered by new social interactions,
digital technology and pop culture. This is how I came to create HG Contemporary at a
captivating moment in art history. I feel truly lucky to be a part of it and built lasting
relationships with some of the most provocative and raw talents of today."
Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim is engaged in numerous non-profit institutions including The
Bowery Mission and as a board member of Elevate New York with the Bronx Studio School for
