Life, health, happiness, yoga, style, travel, sunshine and endless possibilities…
American artist, Edward Hopper, famously said: “If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint”. This is particularly true of the art collection at Opera Gallery, one of my favourite galleries in London. Situated on New Bond Street in Mayfair, the gallery is my slice of life when my scales are tipped towards work. It’s a wonderful place to forget about everyday matters and immerse in the dreamy world of art and creativity.
Opera Gallery London’s collection of high-end contemporary and modern paintings & sculptures never fail to leave me speechless – and I mean that in the best possible way. The gallery displays a permanent collection of the most renowned international artists (Picasso, Dalí, Braque, Warhol and Chagall), as well as, special exhibitions every two months (the recent Miró, Calder & Dubuffet exhibition was beautiful). Not only does the gallery showcase the classics, but it also promotes young contemporary and modern creative talent; recent artists include Ron English, Lita Cabellut, Lori Earley, David Mach and Flore Zoe.
The gallery’s Director and Curator, Jean-David Malat, is a man who wears Ozwald Boateng suits and vintage Rolexes, and manages to encapsulate everything from comedian to model, writer to philanthropist, businessman to creative force, husband and father, fashion label to the world of art, everything he touches turns to gold…it’s no surprise the gallery has become an international phenomenon.
