Gallery 545 Goes 100% Digital

Gallery 545 is making the most of its digital platforms to respond to the negative impact of Covid-19 on the art world. As galleries, art fairs, arts venues, shops and studios are closed, online platforms have become a fundamental means to showcase art. We are therefore using our e-commerce website, blogs and social media to show online exhibitions, present additional selections of art works, introduce more artists and bring you news about art. In this way, we can continue to serve our customers, support artists and connect them to art lovers. Read more in our blog.

Hot Art Trends

Gallery 545 has checked the latest art trends to keep you updated about what is hot in the art world. Figurative art has been a large trend in the 2010s, with particular attention given to female figures, the body and nature, but abstract art could be the dominant trend of this decade. Bold, intricate artworks are becoming more and more popular, but those with simpler composition and subdued colours are still very much sought after. Read more about these and other trends, and our popular artworks in our blog…and get inspired!
