Originally in film production, John Wolf began researching the L.A. art scene in 2009 when he started his own collection—
which ultimately led him to his current career as a fine-art adviser, working with private clients and interior designers like Trip Haenisch and David Phoenix. With a focus on contemporary and emerging artists, Wolf has a knack for finding creatives who will become the next big thing. Right now he is placing bets on L.A.-based Brian Bress and Jane Hugentober, to name a few. Says Wolf, “There is such fervor in the local art community right now, L.A. is the SoHo of the ’80s!” 310-623-2123. johnwolf.com.
