Lakritz Art –

Art galleries East London

Lakritz offers a new way to experience Contemporary Abstract Art for the novice and the more assertive collectors alike. The Concept behind Lakritz Contemporary Art Studio/Gallery is based on the Ideas:

  • Keep the atmosphere relaxed and personal.
  • Visit the Artist rather than a Gallery and experience the Art in a personal living environment
  • Asked Question and get answers directly from the Artist.
  • The other fantastic opportunity offered by Lakritz is the possibility to rent the attached 50sqm Holiday Flat and spend time with original artwork instead of participating in a traditional art exhibition.
  • Get a feeling for the energy radiating off the Art piece and take your time to see how you are influenced by it.
  • Lakritz also sells it original abstract paintings.

The Artist

It’s the finesse of knowing where to act and where to stop what makes it Art

During the 90tis she worked as a freelance Hair and Make- up for Fashion magazines, Music Videos and Film, national and international.
