Bluerider ART is to open its first UK-based gallery, in London’s Mayfair. The new luxury space, opening in September 2023, is located in the heart of the city within a historically significant Grade II listed building, boasting a 300-year-old legacy.
The grand opening is scheduled for September 9th and will feature the inaugural exhibition titled Homeland Universe. This exhibition will showcase the works of 16 talented artists from around the world, who all use art as a common language to express the concept of a cosmic home. Notably, this event marks a significant milestone for the brand as Bluerider ART celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
Bluerider ART, established in Taipei, Taiwan in 2013, draws its name from the art movement “Der Blaue Reiter” initiated by avant-garde artist Wassily Kandinsky. The group focuses on fostering artists’ self-expression in various art forms and shares a strong belief in the spirituality of art. Over the past decade, Bluerider ART has collaborated with more than 80 outstanding artists from Europe and America.
Bluerider ART was founded by Ms. Elsa Wang (seen top of page). With her experienced background in IT business, she organised a professional team with specialities and passion in art. Through high-quality exhibitions, artist talks, collector meetings, events, and in-depth guiding tours, Bluerider ART aims to provide a professional service for long-lasting collection programs.
In September 2013, Bluerider ART opened two spaces in Taipei. In May 2021, it expanded its presence to Shanghai. Now, in September 2023, Bluerider ART opens its newest space in London, Mayfair, marking a return to the European continent where the spirit of the Blaue Reiter originated. The organisation remains dedicated to preserving the spiritual essence of Kandinsky’s Western art and the indomitable spirit of Lu Xun’s “Wild Grass” in the East.
Bluerider ART seeks to create a platform for East-West exchange through its foundations in Taipei, Shanghai, and London. It offers high-quality professional collection services, explores the universal language that transcends time and space in art, and is committed to enriching the human spirit through art.
Bluerider ART’s opening exhibition titled Homeland Universe, will feature 16 represented artists who were invited to create works inspired by the theme of a cosmic home. Each artist presents their unique interpretation of this concept.
Chinese artist Cao Jigang’s tempera painting, titled “Half Mountain,” beautifully captures the essence of “the way of nature and the unity of heaven and man.” The artwork depicts a mountain shape with layers of tempera in a transparent jade-like texture, evoking a poetic and natural feel.
