FUMO GALLERY is the result of a synergy between people
and ideas. The space was born out of the desire to offer a place and platform
for artistic projects that are driven by passion and the non-conventional. All curated
works are either carefully selected one offs or produced in very limited runs -
each creation permeates the stories and souls of their creators.
The starting point for FUMO GALLERY has always been the wish to give a voice to the stories behind an artistic production, whether it is created from brand new materials or from recycled, transformed and reanimated materials. These pieces often carry stories that are off the fringes and do not find a wider voice or platform other than through their own expressivity.
From the onset, FUMO GALLERY discovers artists starting through an initial exploration in the Italian province of Mantua – the home of many of artists selected. Progressively over time, the gallery’s perspective has expanded to the point of fully sharing creative experiences with the discovered artists and in some cases, following the same paths trodden by the artists through syntonic collaborations. Thus, FUMOGALLERY has evolved into a processor of ideas, a hotbed of culture where new productions and synergetic creations come into being.
The gallery has developed in two directions: PROJECTS and the ROOK STORE. PROJECTS feature more comprehensive artworks that are contextualised through extensive artistic research and can be purchased only upon request. In the ROOK STORE (rook as in the black, mysterious, smart, insatiable and ravenous bird), one will find single works of art and curious objects of art and design that are available immediately for online purchase.
Recognising there is no limit to the imagination, FUMO GALLERY is always on the lookout for new artists and creative talent as we are very open to exploring new ways of understanding art and design.
