ArtCatto is the brainchild of Gillian Catto, who after 30 years as the owner of an internationally recognised and respected gallery in London, decided to settle in the Algarve and opened ArtCatto in 2011.

Gillian Catto developed a reputation, which is second to none. She was responsible for launching the careers of artists who have subsequently become household names, such as Jack Vettriano. His solo exhibition at her Gallery helped to create a global demand for his work, which skyrocketed in value virtually overnight.
There are many artists who owe a debt of gratitude to Gillian, whose gallery became a byword for quality artwork. The gallery’s success had a lot to do with her personal style. The gallery was a haven for an eclectic and interesting group of people who would gather to see the latest exhibition on show. Gillian Catto exhibited celebrities turned artists, such as Tony Curtis and Tony Bennett, generating a massive amount of press interest in the gallery.

Gillian was also responsible for the monumental commission of the acclaimed Russian artist – Serge Chepik in St Paul’s Cathedral. Baroness Thatcher attended the dedication of the artwork in St. Pauls’ Cathedral in 2005 amongst other dignitaries.

Gillian Catto has brought her flair, experience, and vision to ArtCatto, which has over the years built up a formidable reputation for exhibiting some of the best international fine and urban artists around.
