About Yvan guerrin
Yvan Guerrin is a passionate of art and history since his childhood. He started collecting about the age of 13, when his grandmother gave him his grandfather’s “treasures suitcase”.
He discovered the pleasure of collecting with stamps and coins. Afterwards, he quickly orientated towards other subjects like archeology, tribal art, and African art particularly.
He spent years buying items in antique shops, brocantes or flea markets and selling them online as a way to finance his own collection, while he was working in the banking sector.
In 2009 he opened a gallery called “Mondes d’Hier” -renamed “Galerie Guerrin” in 2021- next to Place du Jeu de Balles where the biggest Brussels Flea Market takes place daily.
Since then he helps collectors and their successors to give a second life to the items they once treasured.
He also collaborates with auction houses as seller or expert in African Art.
