RIANA RAOUNA is a contemporary art gallery which shows the work of emerging and mid-career artists from the international art scene, with a focus on painting. The gallery operates online through www.rianaraouna.com and acts as an internationally oriented platform. Apart from enjoying the paintings, viewers have access to curated exhibitions through the gallery’s Online Viewing Room.
The gallery’s founder, Μs. Riana Raouna, is a Contemporary Art Specialist, an MA graduate in Contemporary Art from Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London and has a long professional history in marketing communications. As Ms. Raouna explains, “the work of emerging artists, most of them coming from the younger generation, reflects the present moment and the future. Through their restless spirit, these artistic voices explore issues related to contemporary life, and this is what makes their work particularly fresh and powerful.”
Featured artists are chosen based on elaborate research with the main criteria being, the aesthetic appeal of their work, as well as the depth of the themes explored. The gallery also seeks to discover and promote artists who have an increased potential of becoming established within the international art scene. According to Ms. Raouna, “we wish to support art lovers and collectors in developing or enriching their own collection with works of high aesthetic value, at affordable prices. Our featured artists represent some of the most promising talents in the international art scene, they are award-winning and exhibit their work in international galleries and art institutions. The value of their work increases throughout time, not only in terms of cultural but also financial value.”
By operating online, the gallery provides access to artists whose work would not be easily accessible in any other way, thus breaking any geographical barriers. In case of a sale, the gallery ships the works internationally and delivers them to the buyer’s door.
