Kris remains the operational manager of kunzt.
Why is it interesting to purchase artworks on kunzt.gallery?Life is short and we believe there is too much art on the Internet to filter through all by yourself. So, we are dedicated to gathering a great number of partners of the art world in order to offer you unique, compelling, contemporary artworks and talented artists. We carefully curate each piece, and our website was created to offer you an uncommon browsing experience in a very interactive way.
Can I view the artwork in person prior to purchase?Our inventory is housed all over the world, so we are not always able to accommodate viewing sessions prior to purchase.
