m+V ART is located in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District. Founded by Valentina Garcia and Mali Parkerson, two art entrepreneurs with a passion for fine art and a combined experience of over 15 years in the international art world. It all began when Valentina answered an online job ad and Mali received an impeccable résumé, totally overqualified for the assistant position she was seeking, but figured she’d give it a shot. Valentina was not interested in the position, but rather in Mali’s former company, Masaya Fine Arts, that managed artist’s careers. After a 3 hour phone interview and a following live interview in New York, the two of them knew they were on to something big and decided to join forces. Shortly there after m+v ART was born. Valentina brought her extensive experience in NY, first at Sotheby’s and later the prestigious gallery of the Upper East, The Elkon Gallery. Mali incorporated her past in international sales and artist management, including a long lasting relationship with sculptor Rafael Barrios and a breakthrough placing of his work on Park Avenue in 2012. Headquartered in the iconic Wynwood Building, m+v ART strives to assist collectors in building their collections, as well as managing the careers of artists, as well as launching their own gallery, a life long dream for both.
