Sabrina Amrani opened her eponymous space in June 2011. Based
in Madrid (Spain), Sabrina strongly believes in the potential of the
global art market by spreading her activities all over the world. The
gallery participates actively in international art fairs and group shows
taking its artists from Miami to Tokyo, Beirut, Amsterdam, London,
Casablanca, Paris, Torino or Dubai and hosts at least six exhibitions a
year in its space. Sabrina Amrani has definitely set her name on the
international art scene representing both emerging and renowned
artists such as Younes Baba-ali (Morocco), Amina Benbouchta
(Morocco), Elvire Bonduelle (France), Zoulikha Bouabdellah (Algeria),
Ayesha Jatoi (Pakistan), Nicène Kossentini (Tunisia), Waqas Khan
(Pakistan), Larissa Sansour (Palestine) and UBIK (India).
Her interest in emerging artists has led Sabrina Amrani to offer her
gallery as a platform to uncover new talents while providing all the
necessary support to develop their career on the international art
scene by guiding the artist through the different processes for building
a strong reputation. Her close rapport with the artist is definitely related
to her graduation in Sociology and Business Management from La
Sorbonne, Paris but also to the personal belief that art constitutes the
greatest cultural ambassador.

Elizabeth Markevitch is an art professional and the head and founder of ikono, an international platform of display and broadcasting
visual arts. Markevitch started her career in the early eighties as assistant fashion
editor for Vogue Hommes and has since served many roles in the art industry: head of the Art Fund, Artemis; head and founder of

when she co-founded the first online gallery eyestorm; projects such as „46664 – 1 Minute of Art to Aids“ in 2003, a
