CoBrA Gallery was founded in Shanghai in 2021, located in the century-old Somehk Building on the Bund. The gallery founder Wei Qing has studied and worked in Paris for many years, and her passion for art collecting as well as all other kinds of beautiful objects has never faded. She and her husband Cola, who is a designer, has established an art collection including contemporary art and modern design furniture, the most popular items in the auction house. Their years of international art collecting experience have therefore evoked the development of the European vintage design furniture industry in the Chinese market.
CoBrA Gallery is a collective design and art gallery, not only promotes international contemporary artists but also combines valuable European vintage design furniture with contemporary art, weaving the concept of avant-garde along with the classics. It is the goal of CoBrA Gallery to create and establish a fashionable and unique space that is aesthetically pleasing to the current art world.
