We are proud to share with you the exciting news of our participation at the “Monaco Fair”, from October, 5th to 10th, in Monaco, France.
This year, the theme of the Fair being “Japan”, it is a perfect chance for us to bring contemporary Japanese art to the French public and facilitate access to these high quality works for art collectors.
We will also display traditional Japanese art works, thus mixing modern and ancient, in a typical Japanese way.
For the first time, the Fair will be inaugurated by HSH Prince Albert II, on October, 5th, and we hope many of you will come to discover our art works.
If you have any question or want us to bring a specific painting to Monaco, feel free to send usan email : email@example.com

Born in 1953 in Karlsruhe, Germany, Florian Thomas Keller went to art school in Sweden. He traveled and exhibited his work in many countries and co-founded the gallery “gad”, in Berlin.
About his art, he explains:
Speaking about art is not an easy task. For me, art is defined through the eye of consciousness. I choose what art is, what materials I use. I start with a movement or I make a small distinctive point by pencil, on my canvas, and then, the process starts. I use different techniques and tools, for example brush, knife, coal, spray, etc, and different materials like metal, sand, and wood. Then, I begin a kind of build up. Sometimes I go over, I wipe out, I put together… My eyes and hands dictate how the work takes form.
I mostly create abstract works but figurative elements can be introduced if necessary. I decide the work balance: a good flow or a nice shock, eruption or calm, reduction and emptiness.
The title gives one direction, one possibility to understand the piece but there is always more for the viewer to feel and understand.
