PAUL HEMMING

Mirus Gallery’s founder Paul Hemming, has spent his life travelling between two worlds, born to a chinese mother and American father. His entrepreneurial spirit has driven him to develop an eclectic business that reflects not only the duality in himself but also the yin and yang of Zen Philosophy. His lifestyle brand company, Zen Compound was brought forth by the intersection of art, music, technology and sustainability. By day Zen Compound, operates as Mirus Gallery and ECO-SYSTM, a dynamic coworking space that also serves as an incubator for startups in which Hemming takes an interest. By night, Temple, an innovative nightclub known for its entertainment programming, production feats, and legendary hospitality, thumps as patrons provide the kinetic energy that lights up the dance floor. In 2017 Hemming expanded Zen Compound to Denver, Colorado opening second locations Mirus Gallery and Temple Nightclub under the same roof in the Golden Triangle neighborhood.

“Though each business is vastly different, the fundamentals behind each are the same: responsibility in all forms, to each other and our planet; constant evolution; and a drive to create something meaningful”

– Paul Hemming
