With ambition, honesty and discretion, Van Souvannasane offers synergy and fresh perspectives to his clients and associates.
A resident of Providence via NYC, Van has been active in the community as the Owner and Director of Yellow Peril Gallery, a vital presence in the contemporary art scene since 2011. Yellow Peril has earned respect as a serious venue by focusing on solo shows and participating in international art fairs in NYC, Miami Beach, the Hamptons, Istanbul and Paris.
A Hampshire College and Boston University Brussels graduate, Van is passionate about contributing to Providence’s creative heritage and cosmopolitan vibe by promoting artists through innovative, engaging channels. Prior to gallery work, he spent 10 years in corporate communications in NYC and Belgium, learning about the importance of standardization and partnerships for success. Incorporating these “co-opetition” lessons into running a gallery – with no previous experience – provides him with the right level of discipline and professionalism for conducting business in the art world and its numerous satellites.
At Coastal Properties Group, Van specializes in carefully curated properties for discerning clients on the East Side of Providence and waterfront communities in Rhode Island and surrounding areas. Through UNLISTED Rhode Island, he works exclusively with buyers and sellers interested in luxurious properties.
Van is a member of the Greater Providence Board of Realtors, Rhode Island Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, and he is certified in GREEN building and sustainable business practices.
