Gallery in the Spotlight - Multi Art Gallery Monaco

Every year, World Art Dubai (WAD) unites 300+ galleries and artists from more than 50 countries, from emerging artists to established talent. We’re delighted to introduce some of the trailblazing creatives who are taking part in the show’s ninth edition, from 9 to 12 March 2023 at Dubai World Trade Centre.

Multi Art Gallery Monaco, an online contemporary art gallery that represents contemporary artists from all nationalities, will showcase the work of eight incredible painters and sculptors from around the globe at this year’s event.  

The forward-thinking art gallery in the city-state supports artists and collectors in exceptional places and its sister company, Multi Art Events, creates meetings and events for artists, painters, sculptors, photographers and other visual artists, acting as a platform to display the diversity of the art world’s most striking trends.

We spoke to Wendy Lauwers, Founder and Director of the gallery and of Multi Art Events, to find out more about what you can expect from her exhibit at WAD.

what inspires you?

The thought of giving all types of artists a platform to showcase their work to people all around the world. I launched Multi Art Gallery Monaco to rethink the concept of the traditional art gallery and to provide support to artists and events in exceptional places

The gallery represents contemporary artists from all nationalities, each representative of a strong current in their own artistic discipline.

What does your
Gallery represent?

The beauty of uniting both established and promising emerging talent in the form of artists, painters, sculptors, photographers and other visual artists, which is what I get the chance to do through Multi Art Events.

What jobs have you done other
than being a gallery director?

I first studied psychology, before becoming passionate about art. My love of art is rooted in its ability to boost the exchange of ideas and its vectorial power in the evolution of societal thought. I also have a background in PR which has helped me develop my online gallery and Multi Art Events which are both dedicated to uniting artists of all kinds.

What’s one thing
we should know about you?

I have grown Multi Art Events to become an artistic platform that is recognized today for the quality of its own events and for its collaborations with certain large-scale international events. After having conquered the French Riviera, Multi Art Events is now in full development to impose its label in Europe and around the world. Most recently, Multi Art Gallery Monaco and its artists provided a selection of work to the charity auction organised by The Women World Leaders Monaco and the proceeds were donated to the Saving the Hearts of Women Foundation. The event took place at the Monaco Yacht Club under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and in the presence of Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, Honorary President of the Women World Leaders Monaco.

What can we expect
from your stand at WAD?

Multi Art Gallery Monaco will be exhibiting a diverse mix of paintings and sculptors from eight artists that highlight artistic creation of all forms.
