On January 28th 2022, The Haykoff Gallery, founded by accomplished art dealer and collector Bella Haykoff, presented an exclusive invitation-only art collection viewing of The Constellation Collection by Martiros Manoukian at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills. As the first official collection showing, The Constellation Collection showcases a glimpse of the future with enough ambiguity to discover your own individual narrative within the framework of the fantastic.
Professional art expert, speaker and auctioneer Leif Rydfors unveiled 11 of the 21 art pieces from Haykoff’s $62 million Martiros Manoukian collection. Guests and art collectors including Nancy Davis, founder of the Race To Erase MS foundation, world-renowned artist Arthur J Williams Jr, recording artist Brian McKnight Jr, celebrity stylist and personality Derek Warburton, TV host George Satsidis, style influencer and host Kinya Claiborne and many more were treated to a live jazz band, cocktail and hors d’oeuvres while viewing the collection.
In 2015, Haykoff reconnected with the world-renowned artist Martiros Manoukian. Immediately recognizing his genius, she purchased the artist’s entire inventory of original Martiros paintings and other Martiros artworks worth an estimated $100 million. In 2018, she purchased the copyright for all artworks and intellectual property created by Martiros, making her the sole representative of his originals.
The art was recently seen in the wedding photos of Paris Hilton, adorned on the walls of the Hilton estate she was married in.
