Katrine Levin Galleries
London | New York
Katrine Levin Galleries showcases and promotes exceptional contemporary artists from places less explored, focusing on Southwest China and Georgia.
The Galleries' introduces to the Western art scene exceptional artists from further afield, staging solo exhibitions for each. Some of the artists are mid-career and others are established in their own countries. The artists' cultural backgrounds provide a fascinating background and fresh perspective while the contemporary visual language creates a common bond.
Katrine believes that artwork brought into the home defines us – it is the first thing we see in the morning and the last thing we see at night. This belief fostered a practice of collecting works that not only engages the mind but also nurtures the soul.
The works span figurative to abstract, raw emotion to symbolic storytelling. Diverse in style, all of the artists pursue art for art's sake. The focus is on unique works that elevate and engage through an inner spark that we call talent.
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 explored”, both in and outside of China, was born.
Katrine's background is in law and art history. Her cosmopolitan roots span New York, China, Moscow and London.
How we work
We are an online gallery with regular pop-up exhibitions in St. James's and Fitrovia, London. Outside the exhibition schedule, many of the works are still available for viewing in London by appointment. All works are available for purchase online.
