Artempus is a new and original gallery concept for contemporary and sub-cultural art, with an emphasis on photography and street art. An essential component of the concept of Artempus is the temporary, ever-changing gallery location. Artempus will present the work of a host of different national and international artists for a maximum of only four months at each location. After each exhibition, there
will be a ‘creative break’, then Artempus will re-open elsewhere, with new contents, new interiors, and unexpected features. As well as purchasable exhibits from international artists, there will also be pieces on show which are not for sale from Varol’s private collection. Featuring artwork and toys from Kaws, Obey, ToyGiants and a host of other fine artists, this is the place to be seen!
