Have you walked into one of the many Lumas Galleries spread around the world? Once you do, you will be delighted to find that, although it is a gallery, each artwork has a price tag on it. Founded in 2003, Lumas Gallery began its operation in Berlin, to showcase 50-150 original photographs taken by professional photographers. Each of the works is signed and sold as limited editions. Now, they have expanded their service by offering paintings, lithographic works and even sculptures.
Lumas has global locations, with shops in 30 cities including Brussels, Amsterdam and Seoul. A signed work of art, for a price ranging from 100,000 won to 30 million won, will surely have you temped to take out your wallet for some dignified investment. Yes, with each being a limited edition, you will see their price rise in the future (the original starting price is set according to size). The 250 artists who are registered with Lumas continue to provide new works of art, which is the reason behind the success that this brand has been seeing over the past 10 years.
Lumas Gallery's Cheongdam-dong location is laid out like a home. The first and basement floor of the shop is separated into a living room, kitchen and a study where customers can imagine the atmosphere each work will bring to their home. These art works will also make for wonderful gift items, with lots of options around 35,000 won.
