@goldshteyn_saatort_gallery

This is the latest gallery in Paris, it opened its doors in December 2020 in the 7th arrondissement. Maybe the timing was not perfect, but the success was already there. Founded by Alla Goldshteyn, Romain Tortevoix and Jonathan Saada, the gallery wants to be a true space of dialog between artists and their public, with an original touch : a bar. If you’re not really interested in the artists, maybe the bar would make you come visiting anyway.

More than a gallery, Loft du 34 is an atypical place dedicated to street art. It is located in an old apartment converted in a 160 m2 exhibition space. What we liked about this place are the new creations that accompany its retrospectives (phosphorescent canvas, varied medium or wood sculptures).
