FELLINI Gallery Kyoto is located inside the ATO Hotel, an eco friendly boutique hotel offering residency and studios to the local and international artists. We are 3 min walk from the subway stop Sanjo Keihan along the Kamo river, and 5-10 minutes walk to Gion, Pontocho, Shijo, and Kawaramachi.
FELLINI Gallery was founded in 2008 in Shanghai, China by an award-winning film producer and art lover. Inspired by the works of the legendary Italian film director Federico Fellini, FELLINI is destined to be an art salon where artists and art lovers can gather to exchange ideas and inspire progress. Spread over four stories in a European style former residence in Shanghai's historic French Concession, FELLINI's exceptional location and dynamic roster of artists quickly brought it to the attention of the international art scene. The gallery's rapid success in Shanghai led to the creation of a second location in the new art capital of Europe: Berlin.
FELLINI Gallery's Berlin branch was located in the vibrant and multicultural Bergmannkiez in Kreuzberg, and maintained the spirit of the original Shanghai gallery by exhibiting breathtaking art in a vast, extraordinary space.
FELLINI exhibits a wide range of work in the fine arts of painting, photography, sculpture, and performance as well as groundbreaking new media. FELLINI has strong connections to established artists and collectors in Los Angeles and China, while seeking to discover new talents in Kyoto and internationally. FELLINI specializes in artist exhibitions and promotion, art consulting, interior design, and lease-sale programs.
FELLINI holds regular events and collaborates with museums, chambers, libraries, and other international galleries. Our attendees are collectors, artists, art lovers, critics, and experts from various creative industries.
FELLINI's goal is to dream, inspire and create.

Two artists exhibiting in the "Splitting Nature" each confront the dynamics of their own paradigm of nature. The selection works of Jamie Elimelech is an exploration of simple graphic forms, such as lines and dots, as its point of departure. Jamie explores how the power of existence can be expressed with a minimum of elements in the two-dimensional space of painting. Nature is present and is the center of introspection. How is nature compartmentalized by our minds and the technology at our disposal? The work is augmented with digital animation that allows the audience to engage via QR codes. Nostalgic memories of the past, Aza Soramame's mind became clouded stills the stress and anxiety of work, school, and socializing. His attempted escape from the all-encompassing mental fog is presented in this exhibition. Aza is able to break free from this fog, by standing on top of a mountain, looking down on a sea of fog, catching a glimpse of the blue sky and finally arriving at his place of escape through Nature.
