We had the opportunity to meet the spanish painter → Juan Ruiz Mena who just won the first price of the XIII Concurso de Pintura from the Foundation AguaGranada. A contest on the Sierra Nevada and Granada as a “Paisajes de Agua y Nieve”
Recently we had the opportunity to meet → Adrien Belgrand, a talented painter. His smooth and realistic touch plays with 3D imagery: the artist wants to make painting the place of an immersive experience, which transcribes a vision of reality without imitating it completely.
At the Rencontres d’Arles, very well-designed scenography for remarkable shots by photojournalist Philippe Chancel. In the church of Frères Pêcheurs, we navigate from continent to continent, but we always see the same thing: tragic situations, linked to a social, economic or ecological reality.
Looking at the exhibition “Les Saturnales, part 2: Solaris”, a suggestion by Simon Zaborski and Julia Borderie (→ for more information), we have been interested in → Camille Zehenne’s work.
Here is a 2016 video that combines the artist’s knowledge as a researcher in information and communication sciences, and her talent as a video artist. In the KissmyArt team, we also have potato names!
Straight from Peru, seen through a beautiful installation that combines pre-Columbian archaeology with contemporary art.
The purpose? Show the water collecting and treatment systems developed by the ancient Peruvian populations. Water management here is based on a thorough understanding of nature and respect for ecosystems. Exposing such knowledge is a major contemporary challenge due to the ecological crisis.
Some artists noticed during the exhibition [ Aparté ], the first organized by the collective Embrayage.
A great initiative that lives up to its ambitions.
At the → Valérie Delaunay gallery, we liked the works of Kubra Khademi, an woman artist from Afghanistan. Her drawings, which are highly autobiographical, cross-reference the artist’s genealogy with the universal history of women.
Visiting Finale, the group exhibition of 2018 graduates students from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris. Great works.
