Gallerist Pierre-André Podbielski, the founder of Podbielski Contemporary, describes himself a citizen of the world.
Of Polish and German descent (father was Prussian raised in Berlin, mother Polish raised in Vienna), born in Geneva and bearing an Australian passport, he is fluent in English, French, German and Italian.
A qualified architect (Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris), a passionate collector, he has become an art dealer and an active partner of Galleria Rubin from 2001 to 2009 - his main area of expertise was abstract painting, photography and site specific commissions.
His participation in numerous fairs (Art Cologne, Artefiera Bologna, Miart, Preview Berlin, Scope Miami) has allowed him to establish a qualified network of contacts among artists, galleries, curators and collectors. In order to best consolidate such acquired experience and face new challenges, he has launched Podbielski Contemporary in Summer 2011 in Berlin.
