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.

What People Say

Yvan has accompanied me in the evolution of my collection. Not only he found the kind of items I was looking for. I could also finance a part of my acquisitions by selling some African masks I bought in other galleries of Sablon years before.
Frank Dejonghe
After my father died, his African Art collection occupied a whole room of my house for several years. I knew there were some valuable pieces but I did not have the knowledge to sell them in good conditions. Yvan evaluated the collection and he adviced me about the best strategies to sell it. I asked him to take everything in charge and I focused on following my own dream: to travel around the world.
