Addendum: The Magic Beans Gallery finished its work in the summer of 2018 and developed further into the Efremidis Gallery, which is located in Charlottenburg.
Those who don´t believe in Magic will never find it.
Gallery Mission and History
Magic Beans takes its name from the beloved children´s story “Jack and the Beanstalk,” which is full of symbols that we have translated to suit the meaning of our narrative. Using this story as a metaphor, our main goal is to support our artists by introducing them to prominent collectors and institutions, and to seek international opportunities for them so that they can continue to develop.
We feel it is our responsibility to find artists we believe in and with whom we can develop longlasting relationships.

Magic Beans was established in 2016 and focuses on contemporary painting, drawing, and sculpture from international emerging and established artists, such as Seungmo Park and the artist duo Abetz & Drescher. Magic Beans opened its doors in the well-known Auguststraße in the heart of Berlin in March 2016 with a diverse group exhibition featuring nine international contemporary artists.
Since then, we have had twelve impressive and well-received exhibitions, and in 2017 we have participated in international art fairs such as Volta NYC, Mia Photo Fair (Milan), Volta Basel, and Contemporary Istanbul.
We are focused on building up a solid basis in the art world, and thus seek to establish constant and trustworthy partnerships, both with our artists and art fairs. We have been featured online by Artforum, Frieze, The Wall Street International, Berliner Zeitung, Interview Magazine, Art Observed, Berlin Art Link, Art Berlin, Art Magazine, Creator´s Project, Gallery Talk, The Culture Trip, No Mass Art Platform, Kunst Leben Berlin, Suitcase Magazine, and many more.
Furthermore, our artists have also been featured in print publications such as Art Magazine, Sleek Magazine, Monopol, La Repubblica IT, GQ Magazine, Candid Magazine, Le Monde Diplomatique, Oxford American Magazine, Art@Berlin, Berliner Zeitung, Tagesspiegel and Artmaze magazine Additionally, Deutsche Welle, Kulturradio, and TV. Berlin have interviewed us. Beyond that, we have published an exhibition catalogue of Giuseppe Gonella´s show “Walking Home” (2016) and “Licht-Gestalten” (2017), featuring works of our represented artists —and we intend to continue with publications in the future.
