We would like to introduce you to Pawel Gruszkiewicz, Auctionata expert in Contemporary Photography.

In 2005, Pawel Gruszkiewicz founded the cimmic photography gallery in Vienna. The photo art gallery not only specializes in mediating internationally famous and aspiring artists but also facilitates the accessibility of photographic art of all kinds. The expert's request finds its expression by continually passing on his specialized knowledge. He holds workshops, portfolio reviews and creative contests for photography. The platform for photography also aims to promote unknown artists by giving them an opportunity to present themselves and to raise their name recognition.

As gallery owner and curator, Pawel Gruszkiewicz frequently works with international photographers, art dealers and institutions, such as the Vienna University for Applied Arts. He offers assistance in the acquisition of photo collections, the procurement of purchases and in organizing exhibitions for corporate collections as well as private collectors.
