ELEVATING EVERYDAY SPACES WITH INSPIRING ARTWORK
Duende Curation is a full service Art Curation studio, working closely with the public, as well as the Interior Design community and Hospitality industry across North America. Bringing an impassioned eye for impactful artwork to each project, our team has garnered a reputation for elevating spaces with unique original pieces, found objects and exclusive prints from a global network of artists.
At its fundamental core, art is a visual representation of creative expression. From an initial spark of curiosity through the exploratory phases of sourcing and curation, art tells the individual story of every space.
Creativity is a continuous journey, one that provides the opportunity to remain inquisitive and invariably pushing the boundaries of one’s imagination. It is this constant dive into the creative deep that inspires the foundation of our business.
By definition, Duende means: the mysterious power of art to deeply move a person. This feeling is what drives our passion for what we do, and guides our team through every project; our desire to create an impactful connection between selected artworks and their surroundings, their audience and the feelings they can evoke is paramount. Art is subjective, yet provocative - it constantly serves as an invitation to connect.
Collaborative relationships are the pillars upon which Duende stands. Our working relationships with the designers, procurement firms and properties with whom we partner create a symbiotic energy that creates a unique story through art for every space. We hold the union we have built with our incredible network of artists in the highest regard; their creative vision, expression and collaboration with our firm is what creates the magic that we take great pride in sharing with our clients.
"TO ME, ART IS THE LANGUAGE OF A ROOM WITHIN THE STORYTELLING OF A SPACE. ART IS WHERE PEOPLE ARE MOST COMFORTABLE SHARING AN INTIMATE LOOK INTO THEIR INTERESTS.”
