The Secolo Art Gallery in Dubai is dedicated to showcasing Italian artistic products. The latest effort was the “Artisti in Viaggio 2” (Travel Artists 2) exhibition that allowed a number of Italian artists to present their talent and works in the UAE. Many of the painters were actually displaying their works in the Emirates for the very first time.
The exhibition was held from 3 to 28 February at the Hilton Sharjah in Dubai under the patronage of the Sawaed Al-Khair Charity Foundation. Dubai Blog was media partner of the event.
The artists were all able to show their different take on art. Silvia Gatti, a versatile artist, showcased her works made of common objects and monochromatic aggregations. Buttons , zippers, Keys, padlocks are often found in her creations where everyday objects take on different meanings.
On the opposite end, Valeria Franchi with a career in design and fabric painting celebrates colors in all her works in which she experiments various techniques based on Abstract Expressionism.
Self though artist with a degree in Nursing, Lisa Burelli is also devoted to the use of color and her creations represent her studies and application of rules of the Feng Shui’s rules and Chrometherapy. Beyond the materials used, her art strives to broadcast a positive message and delivers an invitation to look at life and future with hope.
