Malaysian art industry is on the rise, with increasing level of interest in art and a growing awareness of art as an asset class. Nevertheless, art collection still seems to be confined to a select group, while buying and selling is primarily done through dealers, galleries and the private base. Transactions of Malaysian art in public auction are few and far in between, even by established international auction houses. The absence of a strong and transparent secondary market has in a way limited the growth of art collection in Malaysia as well as institutional buying and investment in Malaysian art.


Henry Butcher Malaysia, having had decades of asset auctioning experience, from real estate to plant & machinery, aspires to help rectify this situation by providing an additional avenue of sale and purchase of art pieces for galleries, collectors and investors. Thus the birth of Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers in 2009.
