“Koningen's fabulous Bruges Art Gallery”
Review of Koningen's Studio Gallery - MOVED

Koningen's Studio Gallery
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: The most contemporary art studio in Brugge. Koningen's art is boldly expressive with movement and texture. Svein and his partner Dianne welcome visitors to the studio which is housed in a 16th century Flemish gentleman's residence, a Herenhaus. The studio is open from 11am until 6pm most days but check the web site for location, parking stations are within a few minutes walk. The studio is in the centre of Brugge very close to the Cathedral. Koningen is Norwegian born, with an early Dutch childhood and is fluent in Netherlands, whilst Dianne is Australian. You will definitely be given a warm welcome to browse this vibrant studio gallery.

On our recent trip to Europe, we spent some time in beautiful Bruges in Belgium. We highly recommend everyone who hasn't been to Bruges to make the effort. It truly is worth it. Very historical, and full of things to do and sights to see for all ages. Whilst there we undertook to discover tithe local art scene and found Svein Koningen's Gallery on Korte Vulderstraat. Absolutely stunning works, so much do we purchased 3 pieces. Svein and his beautiful wife Dianne treated us almost like family and nothing was too much trouble. We loved the whole process of dealing with them and will definitely visit again.

We bought a beautiful series of paintings at the gallery for our restaurant in St. Thomas. The artist worked from our design concept to create a custom piece. He even had it shipped to the Caribbean for us at a great price. We feel like we made a great connection & secured a fabulous original for our space. Koningen recently began exhibiting in Paris, so I am glad we found him before he becomes even more famous (read $)!! Lovely couple, stunning artwork.

This charming studio, nestled on a tiny street in the shadow of the St Salvador church in Brugge is home to Svein Koningens gallery and studio. Works are brillant and unique and this artist is known world wide. Originally from Australia, the artist and his wife Dianne settled in Brugge a few years ago. I happened on the gallery (which happens also to be a working studio - and if you are lucky you will find the artist at work) on a stroll. After an afternoon with them and a tour of the gallery, I purchased my first piece of abstract art by a known artist. The whole experience was so personal. They also helped me to take the large canvas and prepare it (surprisingly econmical!) to ship back to the states. It is a great souvenir of my trip to Brugge and meeting the artist and seeing him at work is something most buyers cannot experience. If you are traveling to Brugge I strongly urge you to visit this beautiful & unique gallery set in an old Brugge house and see a side of this city that is totally unexpected!
