It is with great respect but also with real pleasure that I, Espen Hennig-Olsen have opened an art gallery in Cannes, France. It is an exciting, fun and hopefully rewarding beginning of a life in the art business. Focusing on the quality of art and enjoying the company of many immensely talented artists is a real pleasure.
I will try to use all my experience, knowledge and know-how to portray mainly Scandinavian contemporary art in « Galerie ESPEN Artdenor ». It is located in central Cannes and appears in top condition, newly renovated with upgraded LED light and is freshly refurbished and painted.
Modern contemporary art from Scandinavia has in recent years become increasingly popular. Many consider the potential as promising considering quality and pricing compared to the art scene in central Europe. We hope that the contemporary Scandinavian artists seemingly inspired by the Nordic light, the magical northern aurora, the new colour schemes and compositions, are on par with what the famous Skagen painters performed for more than a 100 years ago.
However, we have experienced some very interesting new contemporary painters from around the world, who fit beautifully into this gallery with an artistic poise and determination, echoing the colour and style we like and enjoy. We are sure that this style and expressions will be sought for, both here in France and elsewhere in art.
