After having met several times in Buenos Aires and working on some pretty big projects together, it is a huge honour to welcome Gaston to the Literoom. Not only does he posess his own natural and authentic style, he is also an incredibly charming and genuinly nice person. Something that, funnily enough, seems to be a common denominator amongst the Literoom artists.
Gaston Perello is an Argentine artist. He was born in the city of Rosario, Sante Fe in 1979.
He began his career working as an art merchant. At the beginning of the new millenium, he moved to LA where he began his artistic career studying film. Upon returning to his native Argentina he started working as an art director for advertising and TV.
Since then, Gaston has been heavily involved in fashion photography, later specializing in architecture, advertising and art. You can find his work in international media such as Vogue, GQ and Elle amongst many others.
Early 2018 we were asked whether we'd like to collaborate with huge Swiss Interior Retailer, Interio. Seeing as this is quite a pivot to our natural habitat, we went off to discuss this with our artists who were equally as excited as we were. Now you'll find 5 LTRM artists Clare Kenny, Lea Meienberg, Roman Klonek, Ashkan Sanei and Nikolai Hodel with a total of 15 pieces available via the physical Interio stores (11 across Switzerland) and via the Interio website - to be found here. We are obviously incredibly excited about this collaboration and urge you to go and check it out!

We hope you enjoy >>>

Well a very happy New Year to one and all. Welcome back to the Literoom. Thanks for popping by.
It's been a little quiet lately due to.. well, life. But we still have all of these wonderful artists from all across the planet just waiting to be hung on your walls and are still available for questions.
Let us know what you're thinking. We love you.
RUSSELL BRUNS. This young man has been on our radar for almost exactly 12 months. Ever since we saw his large scale photography on show at the AVA Gallery in Cape Town we knew we had to collaborate. So here we are - 1 year older and maybe a little bit wiser... and it's actually happening. We absolutely adore his work and absolutely hope you will too. Welcome to The Literoom Russell.
