Nando Kallweit is a German sculptor working in bronze and oak. As a young boy, he was inspired by the beauty and antiquity of a bust of Nefertiti housed in the Egyptian Museum of Berlin. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, his new-found freedoms allowed him to travel to Egypt and develop his belief in the basic strength and pride inherent in inhumanity. His sculptures seek to emphasize this through elongated forms and upright postures. He reduces the figures to simple gestures and movements creating sculptures with a wonderful interplay between the archaic and the modern; between art and design.
Nandos work has been exhibited across Europe and is held in many private collections. He has produced a number of large scale permanent installation pieces for German municipalities and museums.

She continued to develop her drawing technique at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid as part of the European Erasmus programme. Rachael paints and teaches life drawing classes in Norfolk.
“As an artist I am inspired by natural beauty, in particular the area I live in Norfolk along with other locations around the world. These have included the volcanic region of northern Iceland, the dramatic Himalayan landscape of Ladakh, west Scotland in winter and the south west coast of Ireland. I find each location captivating and inspiring and my approach to painting is largely immediate and direct”.
Rachael Dalzells work has featured in Whos Who in Art (36th edition) and periodicals such as Vogue, House Beautiful Magazine, Period Ideas, Achica Living Design and Lifestyle, EDP Magazine and Newspaper, Timeout (Melbourne) as well as many online blogs.
Capital Culture Gallery opened its doors in Covent Garden, London, in 2005. Our focus is on living contemporary artists with a shared fascination and positive outlook to the people, fauna, landscapes and cultures of the world. We work with a small group of artists whose mediums include photography, painting, printmaking and sculpture.
Our original location in central London was a perfect environment to hold monthly exhibitions and to build our reputation and client base in the UK capital. We also took advantage of its position as a global transport hub to reach out to the world through art fairs in New York, Miami, the Hamptons, Los Angeles, Paris, Milan, Hamburg, Karlsruhe, Brussels, Amsterdam, Stockholm and Singapore.
In 2015 we left London and moved to a rural location in Norfolk as a family lifestyle choice. We have continued to hold regular exhibitions and to attend up to 10 art fairs across the globe as well as taking advantage of a growing online market for art. We hope you enjoy our offering.
