About

Suraya Warden is an Australian-born writer, curator and private collections consultant. She has written for numerous private projects and art publications including commercial gallery shows, National Gallery of Australia exhibition catalogues, Sotheby’s Preview magazine, and Asian Art News. She was based in Kuala Lumpur from 2009-2012 specialising in Southeast Asian contemporary art and after spending some time in Miami during Art Basel 2012 she now splits her time between clients in Australia, Southeast Asia and the U.S.

Suraya is passionate about strategic art collecting and helping people feel confident and happy around art. She founded KSW art advisory to offer services independent of any gallery, dealer or artist affiliations, to provide solutions that are 100% tailored to the preferences, budget and needs of the collector. In addition, when you hire Suraya her combined training and experience working with private galleries, auction houses and public institutions supports a fully comprehensive approach that goes far beyond the usual ‘10% broker’s cut’, opening up your art collection to myriad possibilities. As Suraya operates independently, her services are a fraction of the cost of hiring a typical art consulting firm, yet naturally more flexible and personalised.

Suraya is a graduate of the Australian National University with a Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours in Art History & Curatorship, and a graduate of the University of Melbourne with an Executive Master of Arts.
