Sister company to the well-established photography company Brilliant Studios, which specializes in portraits, weddings, and corporate photoshoots, the gallery opened in early 2019.
Operated by local photographers Anita Marcus and David Gallardo, the gallery owners have both worked as photographers in the Turks and Caicos for more than 15 years, getting their start in underwater photography. Anita hails from the Netherlands, while David is from Spain. Both have a passion for the ocean, for travel, and for island life in Turks and Caicos, which inspires their work found in the gallery.
Bright white studio lights hang from the studio’s industrial ceilings as it lights up the colorful landscape and portrait metal prints on display, all of which were personally shot by Anita and David. The gallery complements its artwork with a mix of modern and rustic decor to create a unique and eclectic ambience that suits the art gallery.
Photos from the Beautiful by Nature Turks and Caicos
At Brilliant Gallery, you’ll find a large collection of landscape, abstract, and underwater art and collectibles, all of which are shot in the Turks and Caicos.
All of the art found at the gallery is a celebration of the islands. You’ll find photos of various land and seascapes, as well as unique scenic stills of the islands. Many of Brilliant Gallery’s work also features local wildlife, including turtles, dolphins, flamingos, and various tropical fish found on the islands’ world-famous coral reef.
You’ll also find photos depicting some of the celebrated beaches and landmarks of the islands, including Grace Bay on Providenciales and Gibbs Cay near Grand Turk.
The gallery is separated into two different art collections—limited edition and open edition—and it keeps a large number of the gallery’s most popular prints in stock.
If you’re visiting the gallery, you can purchase prints directly from the gallery, but if you’re not on the island but would still like to shop the gallery’s art, you have the option to purchase via its online shop. The online gallery offers metal prints ranging in size from 11x14 to 40x60. All art pieces are priced according to the size requested.
If you’re looking for some inspiration on how and where to display your artwork, the gallery also provides examples on its website to help you choose the right piece for your home or office to complement your interior design style and color scheme.
