‘Serendipity’ 2023 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize exhibition

It is often said that art imitates life, and just like life, art can surprise and delight us in unexpected ways. Serendipitous moments can provide artists with inspiration, influence their creative process, and even shape the final outcome of their work into something beautiful, bizarre, and remarkably unique.

“Serendipity” is a thought provoking and magnificent collection of works expressing motifs of happy coincidences conceived by some of the most talented voices in Narrative Surrealism today.

“Serendipity” is our fourth Beautiful Bizarre curated exhibition at Haven Gallery and through Editor in Chief/Founder, Danijela’s thoughtful and seasoned eye, a bevy of expressive and moving imagery unite artists and patrons around the world, and encourage them to see the bright moments through fateful encounters. Danijela continues to outdo herself and wows collector and gallery visitor with both enchantment and profundity through the universal communicator known as art.

This is the fourth time that Beautiful Bizarre Magazine has worked with Haven Gallery in this capacity, and we are so grateful to the Gallery Directors Erica Berkowitz and Joseph Weinreb together with their team for their professionalism and hard work on behalf of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine and all the artists involved.


Serendipity is the way to make discoveries, by accident but also by sagacity, of things one is not in quest of. Based on experience, knowledge, it is the creative exploitation of the unforeseen.



Our deepest gratitude also goes to the 80+ artists from around the world who contributed such incredible work to this exhibition, including the Winners of the 2023 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize. Thank you also to all of the artists, fans and collectors who attended the opening reception! You can see all of the photographs from the opening reception of Serendipity here.
