I absolutely enjoy the speakeasy-style gallery openings at Leyden Gallery, London Spitalfields. If you’re interested in purchasing art that is unique then visit the gallery, but it is best to make an appointment first. Mention you heard about it from EmmanuelRay.com This gallery is also an event space with licensed artBar. They have a number of events including cabaret, music, life drawing etc. Click the image below to see my mini-blog from an event I attended there.

Our friend Victoria Kovalenchikova, a fabulous Russian artist (who also happens to be a very beautiful woman!) is thrilled to have her painting “The Mirror” featured on the May cover of Private Equity International Magazine. Emmanuel Ray first met Victoria at the Russian, Eastern & Oriental Fine Art Fair in London, last year. Private Equity International is a globally distributed magazine that reaches over 20,000 firms with influential investment managers in the financial world. The competition for this cover saw many galleries and artists compete in it, but our friend has won it! Victoria Kovalenchikova runs her own gallery in Amsterdam. See her website for more details.
