Vanessa Metayer

Born in Luxembourg, she grew up with her German parents and sisters in different countries across the globe, which fostered her fascination for different cultures, their arts and their talents. Her whole life has been marked with treasures from the past, encountering artists and expanding her talent. Influenced by her parents – both eager art collectors – she already began living her passion as a child, hunting unique works of art.

After graduating from high school in Switzerland, she moved to the United States to earn her degree in Art History, which she completed with distinction. She gained her first years of practical work experience at the esteemed auction house, Christie’s in New York, followed by several years in one of the most renowned French auction houses, Drouot.

She settled in Paris where she deepened her skillset over the years, working with jewelry dealers, gallery owners and decorators. During this time, she trained and sharpened her eye for objects and artworks, whilst exploring the contemporary art scene. Her network of artists and art dealers has made her sought-after with interior designers and architects, who request her expertise in discovering and acquiring unique objects for their clients.

Vanessa Métayer works with vanguard artists, high-profile designers and raw talents. Her trained eye, passionate personality and deep relationship with works of art have made her an acclaimed expert in the art world. Today, she is the owner of Galerie Insighter, creating nomad gallery exhibitions throughout European cities and providing personalized interior art consultation worldwide.
