From December 2022, Island Gallery will be representing some of MilanTheArtist's works. The exhibition started with a spectacular preview opening in this unique high-end gallery located in The Hague. The gallery is located under the glass roof of the striking industrial and award-winning building, which offers a spectacular view of the ever-changing and typically Dutch skies that have inspired many painters and photographers over the centuries. There is no better place, with a 350m2 surface, spread over no less than 3 floors in the center of The Hague. "This is where we represent the artworks and where we can propagate 'premium Dutch Art & Design' by means of careful curation and present it in a stylish way to an internationally acclaimed audience.”
