Give Them What They Don’t Know They Want Yet

Real life Don Draper, Alexander Peitersen, founder of leading Copenhagen advertising agency Reputation is not only a brilliant ad man but also a passionate art collector. Alexander acquired his first artwork as a teenager and hasn’t stopped since.

“Art has been a part of my life for so long now that I can’t imagine what it would feel like to live without it. There would be a void, my home would be naked. Art for me is like a bridge to another dimension. It forces me to stop and think. My taste in art is broad but for me, great art has to leave me wondering.”

He shares with us his favorite galleries and emerging artists.
