Nyaman Gallery founder Melvine Amar is passionate about art for what it provides: the feeling of pleasure, nostalgia of memory, freedom of escape, and exhilaration of discovery. Melvine wishes to share with the world the works of artists that convey a vision of the world that may be reinterpreted and personalized at the most intimate level by each and every observer.
Melvine is also passionate about architecture and design and has worked with renowned architects and interior artists to develop her eclectic decorative style.
Together with her husband St?phane R?mini, Melvine created the brand Nyaman, which translates to ?cosy? or ?comfortable in the Indonesian language. More than a word, nyaman captures the spirit of both the refinement and intimacy of home. Following the critical and commercial success of Nyaman Villas and Nyaman Boutique, Melvine and R?mini diversified their creative and entrepreneurial palette to open Nyaman Gallery in February 2015.
Melvine has spent many years living in and loving the art of Saint-Tropez, New York and Paris. She learned her curatorial craft whilst working together with her aunt on the Rue des Saint-P?res, the Latin Quarter famous for its gallerists.
Melville hopes to always be able to continue sharing her passion for art with artists and those who support them. She has always loved and advocated for the artists whom she has exhibited. She has been known to say, ?Artists, you know, are often mad. But it is a madness that drives others to sanity by sharpening the focus on the lens through which they see and know the world.?
