Katrine Levin Galleries
London | New York
Katrine Levin Galleries showcases and promotes exceptional contemporary artists from places less explored, focusing on Southern China and East Asia.
The artists' physical distance from the Western mainstream and the historical roots of their homelands bring a fascinating cultural sub-context to their works, while the contemporary visual language creates a common bond. The Galleries' bring these extraordinary artists, both emerging and established in their own countries, to the Western art scene.
The works span figurative to abstract, raw emotion to symbolic storytelling. Diverse in style and concept, all of the artists pursue art for art's sake. The focus is on exceptional works that bring together innovation, mastery of technique, and an inner spark that we call talent, to convey a genuine, deep emotional impact.
It all started when Katrine's step-father, who was raised in Kunming, the capital of China’s stunning Yunnan Province, suggested she visit artists’ studios there. He opened her eyes and many doors. She was stunned by the calibre of art, depth of knowledge, and experimentation in Kunming. On returning to London, the concept of representing and showcasing talented artists from places “less discovered” was born. Katrine set up Katrine Levin Galleries to establish in the West extraordinary artists from places less discovered both in and outside of China.
Katrine is a dual-qualified lawyer who also holds a Master’s in Art History from Christie’s Education. Katrine's cosmopolitan roots span New York, China, Moscow and London.
