Folly & Muse Gallery and Art Consultancy
'Having worked for Art Consultancies in London and New York, an auction house and art gallery in Munich, I learned different values and aspects of the art business around the world. The passion for up and coming artists has remained throughout and still drives Folly & Muse forward - collaborating and always finding new artistic talents throughout Europe.'
“Art is not a study of positive reality, it is the seeking for ideal truth.” -John Ruskin
The cultural aspects of art and its’ striving for ‘ideal truth’ as John Ruskin puts it, has helped to improve both society and corporate performance. The right art touches emotionally, educates us about our own history and transforms spaces and elevates our experience from the usual and expected to the sublime, an ‘ideal truth’ that we all naturally strive towards.
Folly & Muse collaborates with emerging talent from across Europe to capture the artistic and cultural zeitgeist.
While our artists are from various cultures, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Nigeria and England, they are all at the pulse of our time.
Their inspirations materialize in manifold artistic expressions, the essence of which can be perceived with your imagination and mind only.
Folly & Muse tells cultural narratives by displaying contemporary works of great dynamic energy of colour and form, and explores the emotional aspects of art and its inherence of freedom of creative expression.
The exploration of various techniques and materiality is a main focus in the curation of art exhibits and projects and these vary from oil, acrylics, spray paint, tempera, graphite, chalk and ink to coffee, sugar, lead filings, paraffin wax, cabbage, gold leaving and beading and is applied to canvases using a variety of natural materials such as linen, wood, animal skulls and metal.
The curatorial process of creating artistic synergies and exposing unique contemporary works of exceptional quality to an international clientele is Folly & Muse’s objective.
Our aim is to create a premium unique experience for our clients, by offering them distinctive and out of the box art and designs, creating emotional connections and that tell a story of craftsmanship and luxury.
We want to curate an aesthetic experience on a minimalistic designed backdrop that inspires to reinvent the way our clients are experiencing contemporary art and design in their own homes and within their working environment.
Folly and Muse was established in 2015 to find and collaborate with the most creative, talented and emerging designers and artists. We made it our mission to support, promote and display unique handcrafted works of an exceptional quality.
The site is a heavily curated platform, focusing on Artists and Designers that we believe have the potential to make a name in the international art market.
Folly & Muse will offer a sublime user experience and become a cherished and trusted platform for both the creators and collectors of contemporary work.
To promote their work we offer the Artists and Designers a unique platform, alongside exhibition events across Europe, to market and captivate a new audience.
