MODERN MUSEUM

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.
