Intemperie Art represents a highly curated selection of international artists
Established in 2019 by Seb Melchor, an avid collector and patron of the arts, Intemperie provides a bridge between collectors and some of the boldest and most exciting artists working today. Maintaining a global presence through studio visits, pop-up events, art fairs and online exhibitions, Intemperie provides a unique insight into the working practice of leading contemporary artists.
Intemperie was founded by Seb Melchor to bring together artists who are driven by their creativity and not afraid to be bold. On a trip to Mexico in 2005, Melchor came across a magazine article entitled ‘La Intemperie Del Amor’ which translates as ‘Exposure to the Elements of Love’. These words had a deep impact on Melchor who believes that individuals can connect with an artwork in the same way a human can fall in love. You might not be able to explain why - the connection goes deeper, like an elemental force. Melchor has since sought out artists whose work is both bold and perceptive – work that warrants a passionate response from those who encounter it. In 2019, Intemperie was established as an online platform providing a dialogue between artist and collectors. Through a close working relationship with each artist, Intemperie promotes their practice from inception through to installation.
"We provide a stage for artists who are not afraid of being bold, being perceptive"
- Seb Melchor, Founder
"In my experience of working with Seb he is highly invested in finding the perfect match between the client and artist and vice verse. He has drive and integrity and aims to give the collector a seamless experience in the process of acquisition through to installation of their chosen piece."
