Anna Bova

Before we start describing the works of Anna Bova, we should introduce the artist herself. Anna is a versatile artist creating paintings, sculpture and mosaics. Anna was born in the Crimea, but was professionally educated in Moscow. Later she moved to France where she has been living for 15 years now. Our exhibition features her works on paper, stone sculptures and ceramics. We admire her desire to work with versatile materials using old and new techniques. Her work is always an experiment where the material itself aquires special significance.

The City like a Canvas

Before 5 years ago, hardly anyone heard about Penelles, a small village with a population of 500. It is located in the province of Leida and is surrounded by fields where local farmers grow corn. But now, it is annually visited by tens of thousands of tourists. What brings them here?

Walking along the streets of this tiny village is an art walk. You are totally unaware what might appear in front of your eyes at the next turn. Almost all the buildings in this village are adorned with the visions of some extremely talented graffiti and street artists. Even the interior of the Church of Penellas is decorated with a piece of street art!

Currently, Penellas boasts 112 works of graffiti art. They are located on the walls and the steps of the residential and office buildings, on the warehouses and fences. Very soon twelve new creations will be added to this collection. Through the month of May, the 6th Gar Gar Festival will take place here. If you decide to visit Penellas and see the so-called street art with your own eyes, please send us a photo of what inspires you.

Absolutely amazing!

Spanish freediver Ariadna Hafez performs underwater tango!
The performer made about 600 dives in five days of rehearsals, spending one and a half minute under water for each take (dive, dance, ascent) in the deepest pool in the world “Y40” (40 meters deep) near Padua, Italy. The spectacular video was created by Bastien Soleil (France).

QUANTUM PRAYER

Meet Oksana Mas – a contemporary artist and creative visionary whose work includes paintings, graphics, sculpture, mosaic and photography. She creates timeless masterpieces in search of a single spiritual code for humanity.

The project we are talking about today was first presented at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013 as part of the GLASSTRESS exhibition. Oksana Mas has created a unique series of sculptures from car engines covered with Murano glass. The high temperature partially melts the solid metal, and the “liquid” glass fills the voids, making up an organic whole. The concept of the project implies that the power of human thought and prayer can work miracles. It all depends on how strong and sincere the desire is.

Oksana’s works have been sold at Sotheby’s, Christie’s and Phillips auctions, are presented in museum and private collections such as the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, BREUS Foundation, Deutsche Bank Collection, Copelouzos Family Art Museum, Capital Group Art Foundation and many others. Oksana Mas lives and works in Spain.

A collection of works by Oksana Mas will be presented at the exhibition of the ALÀBRIGA hotel starting in April.

Elsa schiaparelli and salvador dali

Those of you who watched President´s Biden inauguration were undoubtedly impressed by the stunning outfit worn by Lady Gaga. I,  personally,  was totally smashed… The outfit and the dove brooch were designed by Maison Schiaparelli in Paris and by its Artistic Director Daniel Roseberry. Maison Schiaparelli has a long history that has known its ups and downs. But with Daniel Roseberry,  a new and exciting page has begun. The founder of the “Maison” – Elsa Schiaparelli herself- was a great iconoclastic designer. For her jewellery line she cooperated with great artists of her time, including Salvador Dali.

In 1935, Salvador Dali designed a powder compact in the shape of a telephone dial for Elsa Schiaparelli. It was their first collaboration, to be followed by many others. A technical object, the telephone dial, was transformed into a cosmetic case to ultimately achieve the status of a work of art. What a transformation! Modern surrealistic designs by Daniel Roseberry totally fall into the category of art objects and collectible items. Bravo, Daniel! www.schiaparelli.com

A reminder for those of you who are fond of art, design and jewellery : the incredible Salvador Dali-designed jewellery collection at the Dali Theatre Museum in Figueres  is an absolute must to see!   salvador-dali.org
