Hanmi Gallery - London - United kingdom

Hanmi Gallery is a new art gallery, located in central London, with operation in Seoul. The gallery represents the finest modern and contemporary art and design to an international audience, creating a bridge between the Eastern and Western art scenes.

Hanmi Gallery has dedication and specialism in Asian contemporary art. In particular, advocates Korean art and provides a platform for Korean artists in London showcasing the most exciting art from Korea. The gallery also promotes the interchange and conversation between the global art arenas, introducing British and European art into Asia.

Heashin Kwak, director of Hanmi Gallery, has spent her entire career in the art world. She achieved an MA in Art and Design at Ewha Women’s University in Seoul in 1991 before relocating to London in 1994. Kwak graduated with an MA in Communication Art and Design from Central St Martin’s and was subsequently awarded an M.Phil from The Royal College of Art in London.

Kwak is currently active as an art consultant in London and Seoul. Her first hand contact with both current and emerging talents, and her East-West networks, enables her to showcase the most exciting art from Korea and the UK.

The gallery is due to undergo major refurbishment but is currently open to the public with a program of interim exhibitions. The grand opening will take place in summer 2013, when all the refurbishments will be completed.
