DIARY: Wight's art investment gets Saatchi approval

There's a lot to envy about Charles Saatchi: he's a great adman, he's very rich, there's Nigella Lawson, and then there's his enviable art collection. His love of art has led him to build up one of the country's finest collections, and fortunes, and his eye for spotting new artistic talent is second to none - until now. Robin Wight, Saatchi's fellow veteran of the advertising industry and resident of Golden Square, has started up an art collection of his own.

As his agency, WCRS, goes through the throes of one of the biggest refurbishments since Paul Simons threw millions at Ogilvy & Mather's Canary Wharf offices, Wight has decided to display contemporary art in his new offices.

On the advice of the new artist Kirsten Berkeley, Wight snapped up a piece by Mark Titchner called "Work is Love Made Solid".

Luck is on Wight's side, for soon after he secured the work, Saatchi came along, saw Titchner's show at the Vilma Gold gallery and bought the lot - save "Work is Love Made Solid", of course.

Needless to say, Wight's already healthy bank balance has now been enhanced; Saatchi's interest in Titchner has made the value of his work sky rocket.
