Espace Meyer Zafra
Since its opening in 2000 the gallery Espace Meyer Zafra has specialized in showcasing Latin American and European artists in optical art, kinetics and geometric abstraction.
Under the guidance of Venezuelan Master Jesus Rafael Soto, Liliane Zafrani, Director of Espace Meyer Zafra, decided to embark on this artistic journey with a quintessential landmarked space located in the heart of the historical district Le Marais, in Paris. The gallery subsequently started representing the first generation of kinetic art Masters such as Yaacov Agam, Jesus Rafael Soto, Carlos Cruz Diez, Antonio Asis, Horacio García Rossi, Narciso Debourg or Ludwig Wilding.
Then came along the second generation of creators whom Espace Meyer Zafra acted for and who had arrived later in France, following the footsteps of the masters. Composed mainly of Latin Americans, some of the names include Francisco Salazar, René Ugarte, Manuel Merida, Cesar Andrade and Dario Perez Flores.
The gallery went on and also expanded her portfolio to the Northern Italian group, which includes artists such as Marina Apollonio, Manfredo Massironi or Ennio Chiggio and Eduardo Landi.
Today, Espace Meyer Zafra entrusts its walls to the new generation of artists, now promoting a wider diversity of the contemporary creation. This is how the very fresh work of Leopoldine Roux, Alina Birkner, Richard Schur, David Rodriguez Caballero, Alexis Hayere or Marine Provost has been introduced by the gallery and was showcased through different Art Fairs and exhibitions.
Upon the opening of a showroom in both New York and Miami, the gallery has excelled at showing the work of its artists on French and international scenes such as the Miami, Paris, New York, Madrid or London fairs. Furthermore, personal and collective exhibitions have been put together on a regular basis at the Marais location and some Museums and the gallery’s artworks are now part of various prestigious private and public collections around the world.
