Brian Maloney, Founder & DIrector

Thirty-year marketing and public relations executive Brian Maloney spent years showcasing the world’s leading brands with breakthrough creative and award-winning, innovative programs. In co-running his eponymous firm Maloney & Fox, and later as Managing Director of Ogilvy & Mather's US Brand Practice, Brian often relied on the visual arts as a way to raise awareness, increase customer engagement and stimulate action.

In 2014, Brian ventured again to create a new creative consultancy and art gallery called CUSP NYC:  An unbridled art experience serving both the general public, corporations, and experienced collectors. 

Whether embracing the creative process via his propriety Idea Trips, starting or expanding a contemporary art collection through his core artist representations, or acquiring secondary art, CUSP NYC Gallery has been designed by Brian as a user-friendly vehicle to both discover and acquire fine art.
