Art Monaco has been the fastest growing contemporary and modern art fair in the French Riviera. Now, it is pleased to host its first jubilee with its fifth edition that will take place from April 24th to the 27th. Dedicated to showcasing contemporary and modern art in an elegant and glamorous flare, this event is surely not to be missed. Once again, art and culture enthusiasts will find themselves being enchanted over exclusive artwork that will invade the Grimaldi Forum of Monaco.

Under the presence of SAR la Princesse Marie Gabrielle de Savoie , T.R.H. Prince and Princess Charles of Bourbon of the Two Sicilies, Madame la Baronne Danièle Courcelle von Prohaska, Baron et Baronne renald de Meester de Betzenbroeck, Hollywood stars and other social celebrities, during these four days, Monte-Carlo will be adorned with famous and remarkable artworks. More than 70 international galleries will complement the beauty of the playground for the rich and famous. With over 4000 exhibits, this is a special opportunity for those wishing to buy or sell art collections or those who simply wish to be taken aback by one of a kind inspirational art creations presented in a variety of styles.

Art Monaco fulfills its goal by proudly presenting a new international exhibition with the participation of galleries coming from countries such as Germany, Armenia, Austria, Columbia, China, Poland, United Kingdom, Sweden, France, Monaco, Russia, Czech Republic, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Spain, Netherlands, Lebanon, Estonia, Italy, Ukraine, Brazil, United States, Israel, Switzerland, amongst others.

Under the direction of Johnessco Rodriguez from Opus Eventi, this new edition will take your breath away with many outstanding artworks to be showcased, including works from the acclaimed photographer Kristian Schmidt with his impressive whale sharks images, extravagant Mauricio Velez’s shocking yet interesting collection of Demons and Angels (Columbia), Jerzy Kedziora’s unique balancing sculptures (Poland), Pavel Mitkov’s beautiful religious icon paintings (Russia), which have found home in private collections of personalities such as Vladimir Putin and ThePope Jean Paul II, Hatarina Hallback Monnnier’s colorful and exotic paintings (United Kingdom), Hakobyan Hrachia’s lively artwork (Armenia), Anzel Muriel’s rich oil paintings (Russia, Belgium), Flory Menezes’ mystifying sculptures (Brazil), Carlo Aloe’s complex and intriguing art work, and many more.

Besides being open to the general public, this event will include black-tie previews and private openings where people can purchase artwork in an exclusive environment on April 24th and 25th. Also under the desire to give back to society and to support local humanitarian projects, Opus Eventi in collaboration with G.E.O. will host a Gala Dinner on Saturday the 26th at the Hotel de Paris, where part of the proceeds are for the benefit of La Association “Les amis du Liban à Monaco”; as well as L’Association d’art, de la Culture et de la scène «A.M.A.C.S.».

It is on this night when Art Monaco will present the AWARDS OF EXCELLENCE to highlight and recognise those galleries that go the extra-mille to promote the industry presenting quality exhibits at their best worldwide.

Having the reputation of successfully exhibiting modern and contemporary art in a very exclusive setting in the French Riviera, Art Monaco’s first jubilee is guaranteed to shine through. Art Monaco will remain a platform for emerging artists and a bridge between galleries, collectors and those who love the luxurious pleasures of life.

Aucun autre salon d’art moderne et contemporain de la French Riviera ne peut se vanter d’avoir connu une croissance aussi rapide qu’Art Monaco. Ce rendez-vous incontournable célèbre aujourd’hui son premier jubilé - donc son cinquième anniversaire -, ce qui est l’occasion d’une édition très spéciale. Dédié tout entier à la mise en valeur des créations modernes et contemporaines, cet événement n’est à manquer sous aucun prétexte. Gageons qu’une fois de plus, les passionnés d’art et de culture s’enthousiasmeront pour les œuvres exceptionnelles qui seront présentées dans le cadre du prestigieux Forum Grimaldi de Monaco.

Avec la présence de SAR la Princesse Marie Gabrielle de Savoie , T.R.H. Prince et Princesse Charles of Bourbon des deux Sicilies, Madame la Baronne Danièle Courcelle von Prohaska, Baron et Baronne renald de Meester de Betzenbroeck, Hollywood stars et autres célébrités du Jetset , au cours de ces quatre jours, Monte-Carlo sera en effet submergé par des créations aussi reconnues que remarquables. Plus de 70 galeries internationales viendront rehausser de leurs collections la beauté de ce vaste terrain de jeu pour célébrités et riches collectionneurs. Avec plus de 4000 participants, il s’agit aussi d’une opportunité spéciale pour ceux qui souhaitent acheter et vendre des œuvres ou simplement pour ceux qui veulent être transportés par des collections uniques. Avec ses 4000 participants, ce salon représentera, tant pour les amateurs d’art souhaitant acquérir des œuvres, que pour les artistes qui souhaitent vendre les leurs, une opportunité très spéciale. Et aux visiteurs ne venant ni acheter, ni vendre, il offrira la possibilité de se laisser emporter par la beauté de collections uniques.

Art Monaco remplit parfaitement ses objectifs et, cette année plus que jamais, revêt un caractère international avec la participation de galeries nous arrivant de pays comme l’Allemagne, l’Arménie, l’Autriche, la Colombie, la Chine, la Pologne, le Royaume-Uni, la Suède, la France, la principauté de Monaco, la Russie, la République tchèque, la Belgique, le Canada, la Croatie, l’Espagne, les Pays-Bas, le Liban, l’Estonie, l’Italie, l’Ukraine, le Brésil, les États-Unis, Israël, la Suisse… pour ne citer qu’eux ?. Peut-être pourrait-on décliner la liste des pays par ordre alphabétique, ce qui aurait au moins le mérite de ménager les susceptibilités éventuelles…

Sous la direction de Johnessco Rodriguez, président d’Opus Eventi, les œuvres présentées dans le cadre de cette nouvelle édition est à couper le souffle. Il n’est pour s’en persuader que de contempler les photographies de Kristian Schmidt et ses incroyables requins-baleines ; celles, provocantes, mais percutantes, de Mauricio Velez (Colombie) – images de mi-anges et de mi-démons – ; ou encore les sculptures exceptionnelles Jerzy Kedziora (Pologne) ; les magnifiques icônes religieuses de Pavel Mitkov (Russie), lesquelles ont pris place dans les collections de personnalités telles que Vladimir Poutine et le pape Jean-Paul II ; sans oublier les pièces vivantes de Hakobyan Hrachia ; les riches peintures à l’huile d’Anzel Muriel (Russie, Belgique) ; les sculptures mystiques de Glory Menezes (Brésil), enfin le travail complexe et intrigant de Carlo Aloe, parmi beaucoup d’autres…

En plus d’être ouvert au public, Art Monaco 2014 proposera également des avant-premières VIP et des ouvertures privées (les 24 et 25 avril prochain), à l’occasion desquelles l’on pourra acheter des œuvres dans un cadre d’exception.

Enfin, toujours dans un souci de partage et dans le droit-fil de nos soutiens indéfectibles à de nombreuses œuvres caritatives, Opus Eventi, en collaboration avec GEO, organisera un dîner de gala, le samedi 26 avril, à l’Hôtel de Paris, dont une partie des fonds ira à l’association Les Amis du Liban à Monaco, ainsi qu’à l’AMACS, l’Association monégasque pour l’Art, la Culture et la Scène. Au cours de cette soirée, Art Monaco remettra les Prix de l’Excellence aux galeries qui repoussent les limites de la promotion de l’art et de la culture, en mettant en valeur des œuvres d’exception partout dans le monde.

Ayant la réputation d’exposer dans les meilleures conditions qui soient l’art moderne et contemporain, dans un cadre hors du commun au cœur de la French Riviera, « le premier jubilé » d’Art Monaco est appelé à briller de mille feux. Ce rendez-vous prestigieux continuera d’être une plateforme incontournable pour les artistes émergents et une passerelle entre les galeries, les collectionneurs, et tous ceux qui aiment le luxe, les plaisirs et la vie .

Parce que la vie est aussi un ART !

Check out +Dave Joseph (David Youssef) and his bootleg mix of Faithless's hit Insomnia. What he started as a passion since childhood, pursued by private piano lessons and training at the Royal Conservatory of Music, quickly led to David holding down Dj Residency at Stages, one of the biggest nightclubs in Canada. So check out his mix and download it for free Today! Yet, much more to come, enjoy. https://soundcloud.com/your-edms-collection/faithless-insomnia-dave-joseph

We share same views dear +Alasdair Urquhart to the connection between art and life, so that honor is back to you, watch it :-) I am the one who is eagerly waiting to enjoy view the original of your outstanding artwork. That painting in the video is something else. It takes ingenious to add such playful brush strokes with full colros yet in such harmonious waves of happiness and easiness yet very sophisticated and captivating at the same time.

Story
Tagline
Canadian and International Award-winning realism Artist and poet. Mona Youssef Art Gallery: www.monayoussef.com & www.mona-gallery.com
Introduction

“I'am a Canadian and international fine artist with passion for art since childhood and love writing from a very early age."

I believe that art is a manifestation of love, loving the nature around us and the people we share our world with. I am so fascinated by the four seasons and the rich verity they bring to our daily lives. When we truly love what we do, we do it whole-souled and become professionals at it. Art is a powerful tool and a silent International language that can convey messages to the world reflecting culture, history and civilization. This language can speak up, announce, make known, unify, bring together, support, encourage, share, care for, show compassion and kind feelings toward all. In two words; Art is to LOVE.”
