In January 2018, BEL-AIR FINE ART proudly opened the doors of its first UK space in London Mayfair, making BAFA LONDON the 14th Gallery to join the group. Appreciated by collectors and respected in the industry, BEL-AIR FINE ART keeps expanding and lands in the UK to present in its 200sqm London space an eclectic selection of its finest artists.
Founded in 2004 by François Chabanian and joined by his son Gregory, BEL-AIR FINE ART group has been focusing and sharing its expertise on contemporary art for more than fifteen years. Exhibiting international established and emerging artists in Switzerland, France, Belgium, Spain and Italy alongside opening two galleries in Miami last year, the group is also taking part in fairs and organising international exhibitions in the Middle East, including Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Beirut.
The group prides on finding the best up and coming artists and lands an expert eye on post-Pop Art, Street Art as well as Optical Art and Contemporary Photography. Far from overlooking other artistic movements, BEL-AIR FINE is equally able to advise on traditional artistic styles and promotes with the same energy emerging artists and great names of the XXI century.
BEL-AIR FINE ART LONDON is proud to present, from the 15th March to the 16th April 2018, two remarkably curated shows by Carole Feuerman and Sandra Shashou.
Strength, Survival & Balance will present an extensive selection of monumental sculptures by Carole Feuerman. The artist is recognised as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealist sculpture, which emerged around 1970 in relation to photorealist painting. She was one of the three leaders in making life like sculptures that portray their models precisely. Feuerman’s has always captured in her sculptures the notion of natural beauty and a sense of inner peace.
Broken Reborn, by London-based artist Sandra Shashou, will exhibit a new body of work gravitating around the concepts of destruction and regeneration. Her work is complex and intricate, exuberant and elegant. Shashou’s new body of work comprises arrangements of smashed fragments of vintage fine bone china tea sets, Russian Lomonosov porcelain, Spanish Lladro and Nao ballerina figurines or German bisque Kaiser nude, dating back to the 1940s, 50s and 60s. Broken Reborn references to bravery, courage and rebuilding after devastation.
It is with great pride and joy that BEL-AIR FINE ART opened its new space on New Bond Street, London where it already welcomed some of its ten thousand passionate collectors and art lovers.
