I met Kira as part of her favorite hobby: sailing. I did not realize then that she was the young woman that I saw on the META’s instagram. And then, one day I understood and I was eager to know more about this muse with golden-haired, who together with her family, created META, the first “Concept Gallery” in Monaco.

Even when you know Kira, you can be wrong with her sister Marina … That is what happened to me when I went to META, avenue Princess Grace. They both presented me the Gallery and especially the very recent exhibition “ART IN THE FAST LANE”, which revolves around the theme of the motorcycle. An exciting time with two enthousiast girls !




Kira grew up in Los Angeles bathed in a cultural and artistic environment. A beautiful migratory bird, she spent her Master’s International Relations in Scotland at St Andrew’s Universtity, began her professional life in London for ‘The  Economist’ and then flew to New-York in the world of cinema where she organized The tribeca Festival, a documentary film Festival created by Robert De Niro. In parallel, she follows and gets her MBA Business & Art. She loves everything related to communication and events and finds herself managing the political campaign of Louis Giscard d’Estaing for the election of representatives of French abroad. At 27 years old ! Not to mention her passion for sailing and ceramics in each of her adopted cities.

With her remarkable education and work experience, she naturally participates in the creation and development of this Concept Gallery in Monaco with her brother, Roy and her sister Marina. A family story ! An adventure where eveyone is complementary : Kira in communication & marketing management, Marina in preservation of art art objects management and jewelry’s creation and Roy in artistic management. Small team and great complicity ! Each has found its role and supports each other.



META is the first ‘Concept Gallery’ in Monaco : ART-DESIGN-JEWELRY. META, in ancient Greek means “beyond…”We elevate the spirit … We awaken our soul. It is thoughtful : from exhibition to jewelry . Its website organizes temporary exhibitions exclusively on the net : you can discover different talented artists and above all you can shopper them online ! Just like jewelry, T-shirt and accessories ! To see the online shop, it’s HERE.



At META, eveything is eco friendly ! We ride an electric bike ! Eveything is done in Monaco by local artisans ! From T-shirt to jewelery ! Only natural materials and stones ! Unique pieces or limited editions ! Moreover, they support the Albert II Foundation in the reintroduction of the hippocampus in the Principality and have created a ‘hippocampus pendant’, a percentage of which goes to the Foundation. 

At META, we feel an energy, a dynamic, a lot of joy … way west coast of the US …It’s contagious ! You are invited to experiment it every Thursday in August as part of the exhibition “ART IN THE FAST LANE” from 6 pm to 8pm accompanied by their home made cocktail !
And with a lot of inspiration, Kira reveals today her favorites addresses in Monaco !
