Owner of Gallery Sofie Van de Velde

Sofie Van de Velde

In 2013, Sofie Van de Velde opened “Gallery Sofie Van de Velde”. Located in two areas in Antwerp, the gallery stands for entrepreneurship in art. 

As vice-president of the Society of Belgian Contemporary Art Galleries, Sofie is also committed to create more transparency in the gallery scene.


Moving away from a conventional competition-minded gallery model, Sofie’s philosophy is one of collaboration and shared opportunities and networks.

Together with the artist, strategies are defined to bring the body of work to a new level. Then the gallery represents artists in a strong international network, through participating in art fairs and exhibitions.

At the opening of the Art Basel fair in 2018, Gallery Sofie Van de Velde received the prestigious “Creativity and Innovation Award” for their inspirational and innovative way of working.
