\ About

Innovation and passion are hallmarks of Nanda\Hobbs.

Nanda\Hobbs is a commercial art gallery in Chippendalea thriving arts precinct minutes from Sydney’s CBD. 

A unique experience

Nanda\Hobbs is passionate about art, supporting artists and building collections of the best contemporary art. Our represented artists are some of the most talented in Australia and abroad. We have a diverse exhibition program in our Sydney gallery and we also participate at international art fairs.

The gallery has a strong track record in identifying and developing talent across all media, providing a platform for artists to be endorsed in non-commercial institutions and exhibitions: from Regional gallery shows; museum acquisitions to major prizes.

Recognising that the history of art informs Contemporary practice, we continue to exhibit, advise and procure significant secondary market works for our collectors.

Nanda\Hobbs has embraced an educational focus, with an ongoing commitment to bringing new collectors into the art market, as well as drawing seasoned collectors to exciting emerging artists.
