As a gallerist, Kordansky has been instrumental in transforming L.A. into an art world capital.
The new Los Feliz home he shares with his family is a reflection of his creative passion.


Anyone who knows Kordansky, one of L.A.’s top gallerists, won’t be surprised to learn that this reworked 1940s single-story ranch was essentially designed around art—especially California art. Still, the house is anything but a white-box exhibition space.

Certainly, there are more skeletons and tumescent penises on the walls here than in your typical Los Feliz home. (Many of the latter are courtesy of Tom of Finland, whose estate Kordansky represents. Kordansky first discovered the artist through the comics world, and believes that he could render beard stubble with the skill of da Vinci.)
