Born into a European dynasty of collectors, John C. Kulukundis’ heritage has defined his life’s work.
“My family have been avid collectors for generations, and I was privileged to grow up surrounded by a formative array of paintings and sculptures, from emerging artists to fine art. As a young child, I’d take myself to the Victoria & Albert Museum, to marvel over old master paintings and magnificent gemstones. By the time I was eight, I’d bought my first pieces — a Siberian Amethyst and Japanese Netsuke — both of which I still own.”
The inevitable extension of that childhood obsession, Janus Arts now offers a select international clientele the finest, bespoke service available, including:

Extensive knowledge of London’s leading auction houses, both as long-term client and in-house International Jewelry Expert.
