About Sélavy by Di Donna
Founded in 2020 by Christina and Emmanuel Di Donna, the founders of Di Donna Galleries on Madison Avenue, Sélavy by Di Donna presents curated vignettes that combine fine art and design spanning mediums, time periods, and cultures. The works are available to explore and instantly collect at selavy.com.
