On an artistic level , we select and incorporate creators from various disciplines, styles and plastic tendencies, expressing

in his works the millennial cultural background of Spain . Sediments accumulated over time in the mind and sensibility of

contemporary Spanish artists from the cave paintings of Altamira, 40,000 years ago, through Prehistoric, Phoenician , Greek,

Roman, Arab, Jewish, Medieval, Renaissance and Modern art. Artists influenced by artistic geniuses like Zurbaran, El Greco,

Velazquez , Goya, Picasso , Miro, Tapies… as well as by the many museums scattered throughout Spain, whether they are

historical like El Prado or avant-garde like the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.

 

On a human side, we consider our artists represented, not as a number in a list in which only his works and curricular

references appear , but as friends with whom we have a close personal relationship . In SPANISH CONTEMPORARY ART GALLERY,  we

meet creators working in their studios, see how they create and how they develop their artistic sense, and we know their

personal and creative concerns. That is the very same culture of mutual trust we built with our clients when acquiring

artworks in our gallery.

This relationship between the gallery and the artists makes possible our fundamental Philosophy; our catalog includes only

original work, extraordinary and singular pieces of art. for this reason we have not numbered editions , reproductions or

copies but. Unique creations validated by the signature of artists in a formal CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY  which accompanies

each work.

 

 

HOW WE PACKAGE ARTWORKS

 

In SPANISH CONTEMPORARY ART GALLERY, We handle artworks with the same respect and care that we show for artists. Each unique,

and exceptional creation deserves especial attention since they are “alive” and fragile items. In order to to keep

excellently preserved, works remain in the artist’s studio, their “natural habitat”, until the moment of purchase or

exhibition.

 

At that moment our own carpentry workshop receives the information to create handcrafted custom-built furniture, tailored

exactly to each work. OKUME Packing Plywood is in compliance with ISPM 15 standards and international regulations and

procedures that apply to art transport.

 

Once the solid container is built, it is lined with special polyethylene sheeting FlexiLAM to protect the work against

vibration, shock, compression, etc. Then the container is moved to the artist’s studio where We check that the work is in

perfect condition and we proceed to the most delicate stage under the artist’s supervision.

 

 

The work is wrapped in a protective material called tyvek_logo, made by  dupont , to prevent moisture condensation before packaging

it for shipment. The container is carefully sealed and tightly screwed to withstand the probable stress during transport.

Finally, it is externally labeled, in compliance with the international security requirements in the perspective of art

transportation.

 

Our team is highly qualified in professional packaging of works of art, we handle works as the greatest museums in the world.

Since we offer original and irreplaceable artworks we use solid wood packing materials, we never use plastic, cardboard

packaging or items that are not internationally approved. We also always send pictures in its original frame. Our customers
