EDJI Gallery was founded in 2022 by Edward Van Houtte and Ranji Safarian, two Sotheby's Institute of Art alumni, with an exhibition program seeking to break to codes of the traditional art market; a new generation art gallery championing ultra-contemporary artists, with a strong digital presence and accessible to all.

In 2023, after six months of nomadic exhibitions across Europe, the couple decide to establish its base in Brussels and open their first permanent space at 15 rue du Page, in the heart of Ixelles.


Modern societies are melting pots of intertwined and unique individuals and we wish to reflect this through our programming. Here at EDJI we believe art can change mentalities and make societies more inclusive which is why we exhibit art that questions our current moral compass. We champion artists of all gender, race & sexuality in order to be the best representation of our current society.
EDJI aspires to promote art with a purpose and therefore will be supporting various initiatives throughout their program. For each exhibition, the gallery and collaborative artist(s) will choose one association to which they will be donating a portion of their proceeds.


EDJI Gallery has been created to bring the fringes to the mainstream, seeking out the most exciting diverse art talent from the ultra- contemporary art scene and putting it center stage with exhibitions in Brussels, city often considered as the epicentre of contemporary art in Europe, and via its online platform.

EDJI was founded in 2022 by passionate art lovers and collectors, Ranji Safarian and Edward van Houtte. Graduates from Sotheby's Institute of Art, the duo bring their diverse experiences in art, fashion, food and e- commerce for a truly original perspective on curation today.
EDJI adds new perspectives and fresh ideas to the international gallery scene, representing artists who are reflective of life for a newgeneration.
