Anya Shor Co-Director and Co-Owner of Neubacher Shor Contemporary

With a 10 year career as a fashion stylist and an education in art history, Anya Shor lends a discerning eye to Neubacher Shor Contemporary.  Her ability to assess a collector’s space and style enables her not only to place art work in the right context, but also to introduce the collector to artists that suit their tastes. “The art you surround yourself with must be an extension of your personal style. Like great style, it should not feel predictable. Within each context, there is room to play for contrast and an element of surprise.”

Anya has lent her stylistic insight to various print and television items including Etalk, the Globe and Mail, the National Post, and Fashion Magazine.  Her other client lists include such perennial style-makers as BMW and Nike, along with numerous celebrities and music personalities.
