At Leather Gallery, we are transforming the way you experience art by curating a collection of artworks to bring great pieces into your own home. Modern Museum was established as a way to celebrate renowned local and international artists and photographers by Leather Gallery.
_There are many people who love and appreciate fine art but may not want to learn about the art industry, find the galleries intimidating, or find collecting artworks more on the costly side. We believe that unique, beautiful artworks should be enjoyed by everyone, not just by one sole collector. Thus, we established Modern Museum – a unique and innovative approach which bridges the gap between artists and art lovers in a more sustainable and attainable way.
_At Leather Gallery, we create exceptional reproductions of original artworks from our portfolio of renowned artists and photographers by hand-selecting established printers to partner with. We strive to curate collections of artwork and photography that you will love seeing in your home every day, pieces that you feel a connection with and that inspire and provoke your thoughts.

Our first featured artist for the launch of Modern Museum is talented local artist, Kristi Marié Pretorius.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Kristi Marié Pretorius, crafts a wide range of abstract scenes which focus on the appreciation of colour. Kristi uses an array of different of mediums such as watercolours, acrylics, oils and alcohol ink to highlight the colour in her subject matter, glorifying the light.
The reoccurring focal points across all of Kristi's artwork highlights organic, fluid movements within the art, as well as the bold, vibrant colours. The emphasis on light and free-flowing forms creates a unified, harmonic feel across the collection and reinforces the celebration of light and colour.
We look forward to the upcoming launch of our next Modern Museum artist, Jason Childs – a renowned international photographer.
