About the Author

Opened in Rome in 2007, the Dorothy Circus Gallery was born "on the boundaries between New York and Wonderland". For the first time, the Italian Contemporary Art scene put a spotlight on international artists such as Joe Sorren, Ron English, Sas & Colin Christian, Camille Rose Garcia, Alex Gross, Tara McPherson, James Jean, Miss Van, Kazuki Takamatsu and many others.

By anticipating market trends and interests in the global market, the Gallery plays a key role in presenting some of the most promising Japanese artists, such as Hikari Shimoda, Naoto Hattori, Atsuko Goto and Ozabu. Japanese artists have transformed the contemporary art scene, bringing together their fascinating historical and cultural tradition, refined artistic techniques and undercurrent social issues. Through a dedicated and rigorous research, the Gallery's Art Director and owner, Alexandra Mazzanti, also contributes to the accessibility and exposure of Pop Surrealism in the contemporary Asian art scene, while continuing to discover and promote exceptionally talented artists worldwide.
