http://mo-pie.com/?page_name=index-114 The Amstel Art Gallery was started in 2008 by Leandro Amstel Grasso, an Italian art collector, sales manager and video reporter. Amstel Art Gallery works with the best Italian & international artists such as Andy Warhol, Willow, Marco Lodola, Roy Lichtenstein, Giuliano Grittini, Paolo Gaveglia, Athos Faccincani and Fabrizio Bellanca. After a great success in his country in 2011 he decided to export this positive philosophy in a contemporary and vibrant European city, where the art scene is a cutting edge: London. The gallery is now located in the prestigious Zone one of London, in the St. George Wharf complex in Vauxhall, exhibiting a modern and sleek aesthetic that is so well paired with it’s vibrant and colorful work- from light installations to the timeless pieces of Andy Warhol- all in the heart of the new London’s new cultural and economical hub of Vauxhall-Nine Elms. Amstel Art Gallery was the first art gallery to feel the wind of changes and choose to open in Vauxhall, which now have also the Royal College of Art Studio, and the Newport Street Gallery, with exhibitions of work from Damien Hirst’s art collection. A theme almost self-explanatory in the sense that ‘neo-futurism’- a theme highly exhibited at Amstel Art is a trait of the gallery itself in establishing itself in such a prominent area of London before the artistic hype that is soon to come.
