Matti Gao's love for art and collecting knows no barriers. It hurdles a full work schedule and goes way beyond market trends. A hyper-busy movie producer, Matti Gao inspires me as he talks about trips around the globe, gallery hopping, and bursting days on the movie set. Our interview calls for an early wake-up and a coffee on the go. We discuss what collecting art today is like for him, and as he speaks, I admire his longing for knowledge and the restless expansion of his artistic horizons.
