Our mission is simply to offer new and emerging artists a springboard into a prosperous and successful career in art.
As a young man, I was exposed to the art auction houses of New York through my father's work. When I moved to Europe during the 1980's, I lived in Florence and, was inspired by the city's rich artistic history and its alluring culture. From that moment on, I began to pursue my growing passion for art.
Along the way I learned that being a successful artist requires more than just talent, a strong work ethic, and a joyous passion for the creative process. It is also requires learning how the art marketplace works, and developing the right opportunities to present your work to art buyers in a significant and substantive manner.
I feel fortunate to have had the experiences that now allows me to share my knowledge of the business side of art with new and emerging artist from around the world here in our Miami galleries. Jay Jakela and I founded Art Fusion Galleries almost ten years ago. Since then, we have discovered and represented more than 700 artists along the way.
Now, I am not sure which bring me the most excitement in life--continuing to be a working artist, or that first meeting with a new artist accepted into the growing Art Fusion family.

Art Fusion Gallery was conceived in 2002 as a result of the collaborative efforts by a Cuban-American Artist and entrepreneur, William Braemer and local financier Jay Jakela. Their combined vision and business platform of the gallery is to provide the opportunity for emerging to mid-career artists from around the globe to exhibit, promote and enter the discerning Miami art market.
Quite often, emerging artists encounter difficulties in promoting, marketing and selling their works. However, through William"s extensive and successful business background, combined with his passion for art as an Artist, he founded the gallery on the principle that all emerging artists have an equal opportunity to enhance their artistic career through gallery representation.
Ten years later, Art Fusion Gallery is now one of the longest-standing art galleries located in the Miami Wynwood Art District, a testament to the vision of the galleries' roots. Situated in the heart of Miami's Wynwood Art District, the 8,000 square foot Chelsea-style gallery showcases an international collection of original art from a spectacular array of talented artists. The gallery presently represents over 800 artists from around the globe, this scope of cultural artistic diversity is reflected in the galleries' vibrant, distinctive and provocative energy.
