Danny Goldberg

Danny Goldberg is an Australian private equity investor with his evolutionary track of art collection ranging from the USA to Europe. He established himself as one of the pillars of the modern museum-market collector complex. His status as a collector has been recognized in the USA. An intelligent collector, he buys mainly from emerging artists and divests himself of his Australian holdings, through donations and occasional sales, instead of letting the artworks sit in storage.

Eli Broad

"The Lorenzo de' Medici of Los Angeles" with wealth valued at $7.4 billion, Eli Broad, a multi-industry entrepreneur, managed his way from shoe-shining to amassing fortune to become the dominant collector of modern art 20 years earlier. A man of great causes, he funded museums to support art, in addition to STEM education and development. A “go-big-or-go-home” collector, he is notoriously persistent as notoriously cost-conscious, always striving for the biggest prizes he could achieve. Nowadays, he owns a private museum, the Broad museum, for exhibitions. One of his favorite art pieces is "I…I’m sorry by Roy Lichtenstein".

Kevin O’Leary

The billionaire “Shark Tank” panelist, O’Leary invests in modern art not only to diversify and to profit, which turns out to be a fulfilling prophecy when the financial crisis struck the world; but also to personally enjoy and appreciate the visual appeal of his collection. The finest art pieces in his collection include Andy Warhol’s painting of Mick Jagger through crazy negotiation and other contemporary artists. During his journey of art collecting, he encounters more formidable opponents who are willing to outperform him, but he still continues on his journey, both for financial and artistic enjoyment.
