In the direction of the gallery remains mentor gallery owner and dealer Izabel Pinheiro, as well as, as a guest, Renato De Cara, journalist, manager, curator and art consultant. Both interested in what is not common to propose a new dynamic in the understanding and commercialization of their works and in the relationship of their artists, between discourses and accessible values.
The represented casting, with professionals emerged mainly from the 1980s until new bets, works with various supports and languages, where concept and technique come together, focused on excellence and contemporary issues.
