The mission of the Arsa Nova Gallery is to promote, to develop and upgrade Croatian art culture, as well as to gather the artists and their colleagues through new media and expositions.
Arsa Nova was founded back in 2000 as the first Croatian portal for gallery activity and promotion of young artists.
A great space is defined by what’s in it. Beautiful furnishings are only part of the equation; a key piece of art can transform a sophisticated space into something truly memorable. Our team of art experts guide our clients through the entire process, from art curation to installation. For over 20 years, Arsa Nova Art has been transforming spaces for both new and practiced art collectors.
