According to Adri”Under a Thousand” is a home for good art for Israeli artists tosell their artwork for very reasonable prices. “Art, as a product, becomessomething completely positive; it is accessible to people, it is unique and allof this without compromising on the selection.”
The idea forthe gallery came to Adri when he was looking to purchase art work for his home,which turned out be a very hard task. He had to visit many galleries whichdisplays usually between 5-7 artists at a time and when he didn’t like the artpresented, he needed to move on to the next one and to the next one. “Eventuallywhen I saw something that I liked, the price was too high for me to acquire.That brought me to the realization that the art world needed a place in whichthere will a montage of art, a variety of high quality works to cater to eachtaste in affordable prices that the public will be able to afford.”
It is also beneficialfor the artist themselves. “The Gallery breaks the dependence between artistsand a small group of individuals with financial means who function as art collectors, auction houses and galleries. Givingthem a permanent base to display their work and above all expanding their reachto new audiences which previously they had no way of reaching.”
