FELLINI Gallery Kyoto is located inside the ATO Hotel, an eco friendly boutique hotel offering residency and studios to the local and international artists. We are 3 min walk from the subway stop Sanjo Keihan along the Kamo river, and 5-10 minutes walk to Gion, Pontocho, Shijo, and Kawaramachi.
FELLINI Gallery was founded in 2008 in Shanghai, China by an award-winning film producer and art lover. Inspired by the works of the legendary Italian film director Federico Fellini, FELLINI is destined to be an art salon where artists and art lovers can gather to exchange ideas and inspire progress. Spread over four stories in a European style former residence in Shanghai's historic French Concession, FELLINI's exceptional location and dynamic roster of artists quickly brought it to the attention of the international art scene. The gallery's rapid success in Shanghai led to the creation of a second location in the new art capital of Europe: Berlin.
FELLINI Gallery's Berlin branch was located in the vibrant and multicultural Bergmannkiez in Kreuzberg, and maintained the spirit of the original Shanghai gallery by exhibiting breathtaking art in a vast, extraordinary space.
FELLINI exhibits a wide range of work in the fine arts of painting, photography, sculpture, and performance as well as groundbreaking new media. FELLINI has strong connections to established artists and collectors in Los Angeles and China, while seeking to discover new talents in Kyoto and internationally. FELLINI specializes in artist exhibitions and promotion, art consulting, interior design, and lease-sale programs.
FELLINI holds regular events and collaborates with museums, chambers, libraries, and other international galleries. Our attendees are collectors, artists, art lovers, critics, and experts from various creative industries.
FELLINI's goal is to dream, inspire and create.

FELLINI Gallery proudly presents "GLASS & TEXTILE". Duo exhibition featuring two emerging Japan artists. Keiko Yamamoto reminds us that the shapes and repeated patterns of nature remind us of the cycle of life and rebirth. Yamamoto creates works that foreshadow change by reflecting on the allegory of the forest. The reason why Kyoko UEDA chose shoes as the theme of her weaving is that she sees shoes themselves not as lifeless objects, but as symbolic things that contain various thoughts and feelings of human beings. There are many children's stories about shoes, some fantastical, some spellbinding, and all rich in suggestions for life. A new life, a new story, is born in the shoes. Each artist connects life using different medium to express their views and feelings.
