Welcome to Bella Unica

paintbrushes

Bella Unica is a European style, contemporary and modern art gallery, bringing little-known local and international artists in a moderate to premium price range. The core collection is inspired by Impressionism, Abstract and Contemporary-Realism movements. We also are big supporters of young and unknown talent. Our Creative Farm showcases artists who have no exhibition history. Artists in the Farm are strictly non-gallery artists.

To provide the unforgettable Art experience and juried artwork for our upcoming shows, we team up with exceptional locally and internationally known art professionals. Natalie Velez, along with mixed-media artist and Rapha House advocate, Dee Perconti, select the talent showcased.

Our Leadership

Natalie Vélez: Founder and CEO

Our Founder is originally from St. Petersburg, Russia; now a resident of her sister city, St. Petersburg, Florida. Having studied fine art and marketing at the St. Petersburg State Academy of Culture and having traveled around the world to many global art centers and visited their top-rated museums (Moscow, St. Petersburg Russia, Paris, London, New York, Venice, among others) and through Asia, gives Natalie a unique perspective on art and culture.

She loves spending time at artists’ studios, while conversing about art, inspiration, personal stories and future plans; she creates unforgettable art shows and promotional campaigns.

Natalie’s an artist in her own right. Here paintings and art photography have hung in several shows and now belong to some private collections in the US and Europe.

“I BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF ART TO SPARK IMAGINATION, GIVE LIFE TO THOUGHT, BREATHE EMOTION INTO MUNDANE EXISTENCE, CREATE DIALOG, AND TO ADD BEAUTY AND ENJOYMENT TO LIFE. “
