Aktis Gallery is dedicated to modern art, in particular the émigré art of 20th century Paris.
The gallery is one of the leading specialists in the post-war lyrical abstraction movement, focusing on the internationally renowned Chinese émigré artists Zao Wou-Ki and Chu Teh-Chun, Russian lyrical abstractionists such as André Lanskoy and Serge Poliakoff and European artists from this movement including Georges Mathieu, Otto Freundlich, Geer van Velde, Bram van Velde and André Marfaing.
As a complement to this world-class portfolio of modern painters, the gallery promotes the work of a growing number of sculptors, including the leading surrealist sculptor Agustin Cárdenas from Cuba and the contemporary Chinese sculptor Wang Keping, both of whom also émigrated to Paris.
Situated in St. James’s, at the heart of the London art-world, Aktis Gallery has established itself as a leading destination for museum quality exhibitions. The gallery is proud to be host to a diverse programme of press conferences, concerts, film screenings and thematic discussions related to the works of art on display.
