ALESSANDRO DUBINI LIMITED EDITIONS (ITALY)
Alessandro Dubini is an Italian architect and designer based in Monaco.
The Alessandro Dubini Ltd. Editions is a collection of his art design
furniture pieces, all signed and numbered originals.
Often described as ‘design’s great romantic’ or a ‘renaissance man’, he combines playful as well as extremely elegant forms with advanced technology, all characterized by strong emotional impact. Functionalism is not enough for Alessandro, he needs to create emotions and this is why his works are probably best described as sculptural furniture. Curious, challenging and inventive, his work ranges from design to architecture, from art direction and concept design to art installations and advertising campaigns.
Alessandro Dubini’s works are exhibited in different art design fairs and festivals.

ART LOUNGE GALLERY
The Art Lounge gallery was the crossing of two distinct areas. First,
the economic vision of the market based on academic and professional
knowledge, secondly, the taste through art, national and international,
focused mainly on the creativity of the contemporary field of fine arts.
Located in the heart of Lisbon, close to businesses, embassies, hotels and active areas of consumption and trade, opened the door in 2005. A strong bet of the gallery is to bring internationally renowned artists from Portugal. In a market in expansion, in which globalization is fact, it has become urgent the disclosure of names with work performed and recognized in art circuits.
Today the gallery is in a new space modern and adapted to any type of exhibitions, with about 500m2 and with all the conditions required a renowned international artist.

Atelier Galerie Morin
Claude Morin et ses filles, Géraldine et Olivia, ont la fibre créatrice, une fibre qui s’exprime dans les domaines de la sculpture et de la peinture. Chacun y va de sa touche personnelle, bien entendu. Géraldine et Olivia sculptent le bronze, Claude aussi, mais il y ajoute le fer soudé (son hommage au sculpteur « César » est tout simplement magnifique). Olivia réalise des sanguines, tandis que Géraldine peint de manière plus «underground» (Gainsbourg, New York…) et que Claude opte pour des nus féminins, tout en volupté (en utilisant des techniques différentes: sanguine, huile sur toile, huile sur lin) et des représentations d’oiseaux (autruche, ibis, rouge gorge, mouette…). Trois talents à découvrir au sein de l’atelier galerie familial où ils exposent leurs oeuvres de manière permanente.

BERLIN ART PROJECT
Berlin Art Projects opened its doors in late 2008 in the
Auguststrasse, 50b. Drawing from many years experience in the global art
market, its founders have dedicated themselves to supporting the work
of emerging and established artists living and working in Berlin. With a
program of frequently changing exhibitions and events, the gallery is
particularly committed to supporting and encouraging artists as they
enter the art international world.
The gallery focus is new tendencies in contemporary painting and sculpture. The spectrum of represented works ranges from Christian Awe’s abstract, Street Art inspired color worlds to young Turkish artist Yasam Sasmazer’s haunting wood sculptures to Sebastian Schrader’s realistically painted, precise compositions. Almost all of the gallery artists currently work in Berlin, and all are influenced and inspired by the city’s unique atmosphere.
With its two Berlin branches, the gallery currently represents ten artists from Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey and the United States. The project space in the Auguststrasse shows the artists’ latest works in solo exhibitions with an accompanying catalogue, while at the spacious showroom on Unter den Linden – in the direct vicinity of Museum Island and the Deutsche Guggenheim – individual works by different artists are placed in dialogue with one another and made accessible to a wider public.

Bruce Denny Sculptures
Born in 1967 in Suffolk, Bruce Denny spent his youth making things out
of anything he could lay his hands on. He was fascinated by both the way
things worked and their form and structure. His school years
exacerbated the struggle between art and science. In the end, Science
was the victor, leading to an honours degree in Biology and Chemistry.
He wanted to understand what life was all about from the molecular level
With this thorough grounding, he came to realise that the complexities of human physiology and anatomy play only a small role in the wider picture of life, and that social interaction was key to his further development. He left the solitude of the laboratory behind for a job in the City of London, where the realities of modern day life were played out to the full.
Whilst financially rewarding and socially engaging, Bruce felt that his creativity was being stifled. He turned to theatre and the arts to fill the void.
In his search, Bruce discovered sculpture. His love of the human form and function placed figurative works at the centre of his interest and he signed up for a course at Morley College to introduce him to the techniques of life modelling in clay.
Finally he had found something to bring all his skills and experiences together.
“Sculpture requires a methodical approach and good spatial awareness, traits usually exhibited by a good scientist. At the same time the original ideas and concepts and the final piece of work require artistic creativity. I have found a medium in which I can express my ideas and desires utilising all my skills and experiences.” Says Bruce.
In his first exhibition, “Humanity”, he explored individual human traits. By stripping back all the trappings of culture and class, his naked human forms lovingly modelled in clay and beautifully cast in bronze inspire us to think about ourselves and how we live our lives.

F.man Art (BELGIUM)
The Belgian artist F.man is for years fascinated by the influence of
personal perspective in the interpretation of the surrounding reality.
"So many people, so many opinions". Dependent on where we stand, our
conviction or idea is defined. And as we permanently keep moving, our
opinion is formed and deformed. One moment contains an addition of
opinions and visions, in which everybody sees something different
depending on the place where they are.
To F.man it is a challenge to create this diversity and movement in a two dimensional painting, which changes under external factors. To achieve this she applies innovative techniques and psychedelic visual effects. The concept of 'complementary duality' is emphasized by assembling and playing off opposites in time (past – now) and in art movements (figurative art – abstract art ). Her works contribute to the cultivation of mutual respect, reconcilement of diversities and the magic that arises from it.
The most recent series ‘Fe-male Balance – A Wake-up Call’ demonstrates the quest for eternal balance between Yin and Yang and portrays forceful women.

" A travers le regard c’est la vie qui transparait, explique-t-elle, je cherche à aller plus loin dans l'expressionisme partant ainsi à la rencontre de visages plus ethniques". Réalisées à partir de terre glaise, sa matière de prédilection, ses créations font apparaître une galerie de personnages et de corps où se mèlent sensualité, surréalisme et rêve. Comme un mariage entre le monde réel représenté par le classicisme des formes, et son univers intérieur, romanesque, peuplé de personnages fantastiques, de mythologies, de divinités ou d'androïdes. "Le fil conducteur, c'est l'humanité et comment les critères esthétiques se recomposent avec le mélange des cultures". Artistes aux influences éclectiques, elle se dit "impressionnéepar la simplicité du style égyptien", mais aussi par la puissance des portraits de Rodin qui l'ont influencée dès ses débuts. Elle avoue enfin une fascination pour l'oeuvre de l'artiste sénégalais Ousmane Sow, rencontré ces dernières années.Toujours en mouvement, Nathalie Bicais se lance aujourd'hui dans l'épopée du voyage, et trouve une nouvelle source d’inspiration dans la bande dessinée, de Corto Maltèse au manga.

VALIANT ART & AUCTION HOUSE (MONGOLIA)
For most of us, Mongolia is a remote, mysterious and untouched land
where the descendents of Chinggis Khan still roam as nomads across the
steppe. Although this nomadic culture has not been fully revealed to
the world, the customs, traditions and perceptions of Mongolians are
uniquely depicted in the works of several fine Mongolian artists
represented by Valiant Art & Auction House, whose use of vivid
colors from the country’s natural setting is especially noteworthy.
During the past five years Elisabeth Koppa has been introducing this unique art to the world by displaying it at 51 national and international exhibitions. Thanks to her enthusiasm and efforts the works of Mongolian artists have gained the appreciation and recognition they deserve by finding their way onto the walls of art lovers and collectors around the world.
Now, Valiant Art & Auction House like a modern Nomad, crossing the world to introduce some of the freshest and most unique expressions of this beautiful land and its people this time to Monaco.

distinction. We have two galleries: one in Mayfair, the heart of the art
world in London and the other in the financial centre of the City by
the Bank of England. Since 1964, W. H. Patterson has dealt in leading
British and European contemporary painters and sculptors and holds
regular exhibitions both home and abroad.

Accumulated during 258 years of continuous dealing, our quest for the finest examples of our chosen artists’ works takes us far afield and we boast an unrivalled experience of many contemporary British and European artists. Many important collections both for individuals and financial institutions have benefited from our expertise and we pride ourselves in maintaining close contact with clients whilst advising them in all aspects of collecting including presentation, insurance and framing.
In this age of modern and abstract art it is refreshing to discover artists who are trained in the classical methods of painting. Irrespective of the subject matter, our paintings display a balance of tone and form which require a high degree of ability to create. Time has proved that our paintings will outlive all changes of fashion and taste.

KOLTCHINE STUDIO (FRANCE)
Inspired by her diversified culture, Tatiana expresses her strong emotions through both sculptures and paintings. The intensity of her work is probably due to her Slav origins. Each piece is full of energy and enthuse a myriad of feelings to the observer. Whether she is depicting anger and distress or serenity and bliss, her work is always full of grace and mesmerizes the eye. Her paintings are characterized by soft, elegant lines, daring strokes and bold use of colors. Her sculptures are very feminine with harmonious, sensual, expressive shapes, reflecting elements of classicism mixed with influence of the Russian Avant Garde. All of it captivating in its harmony.

ELIANE ROZGA was born in Belgium.As the daughter of an artist, she was
brought up in a creative environment, where she was able to develop an
early appreciation of music, painting and sculpture. If anything, her
father's death left Eliane with a stronger commitment to her own talents
as an artist. In his memory, her work is signed M.E. Rozga' M for
Maurice, her father's name, and E for Eliane.
"I know instinctively when a photograph will become a successful portrait," says Eliane."I started my collection, SPIRITS OF THE MILLENNIUM, not long after Dad passed away. Somehow, I'm aware that he approves of the work I'm doing. It's uncanny, but when the patterns of light and colour come together, in one of my paintings, and the portrait comes to life on the canvas, I can sense that approval."
Eliane's professional life is an extension of these sensibilities. She works in the television industry, as a make-up director...coming into close contact, daily with the people in the news." From movie actors to politicians,"Eliane points out, "I get to hang out with some of the most creative individuals on the planet."
The portraits Eliane produces are best seen in soft lighting. They come from the heart, where shadows have no place.

STUDIO SOLE (ANTIBES, FRANCE)
My interest in the natural coastline and the relationship between the
sky, sea and land has been a prominent part of my work for the last 5
years. I have explored this subject through painting with many
techniques of layering, using mixed media and developing a paint
process. Before working with oils I used watercolour but I felt this
could not capture the overbearing atmosphere of this subject.
I am currently working towards another series of seascapes that explore paint and the act of painting as a process. Through these processes and certain techniques I hope to capture the power and atmosphere of the sea as well as develop, using paint, the relationship the land, the sea and the sky has with one another. I immerse myself within the natural environment for long periods, drawing in the occasional powerful atmosphere the weather can bring, gaining visual research and inspiration to produce the work.
The materials I use include oils, bitumen, gravel, PVA and emulsion. I am focusing on the technique more now than the subject matter and enjoying the ideas and results of the paint and the processes being my main concern.
The sea and the sky are fascinating to me, especially in extreme circumstances, storms etc. In painting I feel very strongly that energy must be met with energy. By this I mean big seas and powerful subject matter benefits from energetic, physical and confident painting which usually includes allowing the paint to have its own way without using a brush. Dripping, pouring, throwing, lifting, shaking etc all add to this affect, as well as thick texture and paint.

ART VALERI (RUSSIA)
The desire for painting appeared before I learned how to walk. My first art school was in the Domodedovo Moskovsvoky are under the leadership of the heaadmaster Bychkova Gennady Mikhailovich. I was the youngest student in the art school because I was only four years of age. At the same time time, I combined both classes in painting and professional sports (acrobatics). At 9 years old, I enetered the Moscow Academic Art Lyceum Russia Academy of Art named after the VI Surikov (Mahli of Arts) and graduated form the Lyceum in 2006.
I now am currently a student of the Faculty of Painting (Restauration department) of the Academy of Arts named after the IE Repin City of St.Petersburg. The Academy of Arts in 2008 issue "Toolkit", in which a few of works. I also take part in charity auction and exhibitions.

J’ai travaillé pour la Galerie Marisa del Ré à New York pendant 9 années
; mon rôle était de coordonner l’organisation de la Biennale de
Sculptures de Monte Carlo avec Marisa, les Affaires Culturelles de la
Principauté et les dirigeants de la Société des Bains de Mer.
J’ai participé à cinq Biennales, deux expositions personnelles consacrées à Botéro et Cesar et une exposition de peinture pendant toutes ces années. J’ai ensuite travaillé à la Galerie Marlborough de Monaco et je suis actuellement consultante privée en art.
J’ai découvert le travail de Carol il y a quelques années alors que j’étais frappé par la force de son trait et de sa peinture. J’ai suivi le cheminement logique de son travail et son évolution de l’art figuratif à l’abstraction.
La palette très riche de ses paysages méditerranéens, l’univers statique de ses représentations tandis que le mouvement se découvre dans le traitement des matières huile et sable.
La texture rustique est omniprésente dans ses séries sur les palmiers, toiles sur lesquelles la figuration approche l’abstraction. Dans une vue grandie d’un tronc d’arbre, une myriade d’images témoignant de notre mémoire collective arrivent en mémoire ; paysages aériens où les routes croisent champs et prés, ultimes tremplins de pierre franchissant une rivière, un filet délimitant sa prise en mer.
Dans l’Univers Rouge, l’image est à la fois abstraite et figurative, magique et familière. Une dimension surréaliste née ; on peut presque entendre le bruit de l’écorce terrestre sous quelques pas irréels.
La couleur rouge, très importante dans son œuvre (celle de la lave fondue), nous transmet la puissance, le mouvement et l’énergie de la création terrestre. La richesse de la texture tridimensionnelle invite le lecteur à une approche tactile. On imagine l’élément liquide emplissant les cratères…
Dans cette nouvelle ère où l’art contemporain, quelquefois outrageant, s’analyse artistiquement comme « tout ou rien’ , je pense qu’il conviendrait de revenir vers une expression artistique plus conventionnelle. Dans le contexte de l’écroulement du monde financier, une œuvre d’art qui n’offre ni beauté, ni histoire ni talent artistique mais seulement un concept ou une idée ne peut offrir à l’âme ni confort ni renaissance.
« L’Univers Rouge » est exécuté avec talent et passion; œuvre définitive, organique en elle-même, elle parle de la terre qui nous héberge.
STUDIO CNYRIM & NADAL
The work of art and its writing.
Even in the art market genuine unexpected events may rise out of the corner where they were hidden and come up in full light while getting free from the shadows cast upon them by the great masters. Such uncommon events do happen unexpectedly and demonstrate once more that art is exempt from convention and welcomes instead those who in this field live only at the margin. Indeed true talents can be spotted even in difficult circumstances.
Therefore the one whose participation in cultural life is only unconscious can with a clear insight show understanding and good judgement. Even though it is difficult to classify things rightly at first, serious attention will drive you to the right interpretation.
Nataly Cnyrim-Kimmel’s works not only gratify beholders with solid gripping points but also with so many virtual interpretations; the artist’s creative outlook develops a process starting in photography then turning back to painting. On the canvas, the use of pictorial elements in a serial way brings forward very rational ideas and thoughts that are supported by the direct, sensual utilization of pigment. Starting from a cold first impression, the one given by the lens of a camera, you reach conclusively a warm painting with full sensitivity. No doubt that this proceeds from a need to bring warmth to the static objectivity of reality through identified humorous experiments. A necessity which however seems to come off its hinges and expresses itself in the eccentric chromatic values of Pop culture through which the artist suggests solutions far beyond the Kitsch expression – a hint revealing her complex character : capable of absurdity, excellent for the surface, yet at the same time, full of attention, profound and providing food for thought.
With Nataly, application of the black colour is no matter of decoration, it asserts a personality ready to take all the risks involved in such a contrasted painting.
Moving or vibrating in the black are geometrical forms, once more so rational, but made precious through the sparkling spectre of chromaticism. The canvas is a territory where movements and conflicts synthesize different languages and completed experiments. Thereby installing the ideal connection with the digital images we come across every day in our electronic world and that are still light and elegant thanks to their style due to direct craftsmanship interventions.
The thickness of the matter spread with a spatula together with traces of chalk and plaster on the surface take us back to the spell of sensitiveness and also remind us of movement sequences in a film.
There are two basic elements involving us in the construction of film shooting: the pictorial, “light” structure calling up electric currents and the varied repetition of real fragments. The constant strain towards combining various objects, carefully selected by the artist, produces film sequences: the movie of our life. It is mainly through this approach of works of art that those get endowed with a new poetic and human aura...
It allows us to understand time, a certain period of time (documented by the steady repetition of images) and of course some space upon which everything relies. Two very important basic factors lead us to understanding. Time and space. Such works we made a detailed analysis of , essentially remind us that art is a fantastic instrument to discover the present and question the past.
Retrospectively I have to acknowledge that these pictures are undoubtedly cultural products and, as such, witnesses of a specific cultural atmosphere.
Let us fancy that we can read a picture like a written document, the picture would then open itself for those attempting this sort of approach. A text allows self expression but affects at the same time all the individuals reading it or even changes the ideas prevailing in a society.
Nataly’s text and writing describe the circumstances of her own life and by the same movement she participates in the changing of society while interacting with her environment.
To conclude, we like to wonder about the anthropological meaning of such writing or text and we have to observe that before us is a reflection of the cultural testimonies of various objects, things, that assist us in a most important intellectual function, think about our human condition.
The last remark will deal with the choice of the elements of the images and of the topics. The artist often explored an intimate feminine world with the relevant feelings.
Hands touching, expressive promising lips, special spots of the body anatomy, display a balanced emotional world. However, the artist is also capable of dealing with distortions, she is not only concerned with her own subject but also with others’ subjects. For all the reasons above, the art lover is deeply impressed by Nataly Kimmel’s works, they create a special energy by making opposites communicate. This results in a sort of strain, quite specific, allowing for unlimited different looks corresponding to each individual’s personality.
To summarize, it can be said that Nataly is presenting with much force and passion to an international public her gripping, provocative work, but primarily open to all interpretations.

EDWARD WAITES SCULPTURES (UNITED KINGDOM)
Edward Waites was born in 1988 and has grown up in and around the
Suffolk countryside. He continued art throughout his school years at The
King's School Ely, where he was awarded a scholarship. He did not start
experimenting with sculpture until he was sixteen, but since then, this
has been his main media of interest.
His favoured subject matter is animals and wildlife, keeping an emphasis on the animal's physique. His individual style is apparent in the animal's form throughout his sculpture. He produces limited edition bronzes from miniature work up to larger scale pieces. Edwards's interest and lifestyle has a subtle influence on his work, and his ideas spring from his rural surroundings, interest in animals and their physical form. His fascination with the animal's character comes through in his work and is portrayed and is captured in their muscular form. Edward intends to depict each animal's characteristics in his various pieces.

PLANET VIVID GALLERY
Planet Vivid Gallery opened in November 2006 and was founded by Helen
Hofmann, the gallerist, and Ronnie Zimmermann, who is the resident
artist. This gallery project is about creating something new and
different with energy and passion.
We chose a special and different name for the gallery, with the intention to create on the one hand a communication platform for modern contemporary art and on the other hand to indicate our concept of art, which is life-affirming, cosmopolitan, spontaneous, emotionally profound.

STUDIO BORKOWSKA (POLAND)
Joanna Borkowska is a new figure making her way onto the art scene. The artist's deep connection with Nature is the source of her creative energy and vision. The subtle yet consistent language of her style reflects a discipline that leads one to her intimate contemplative world, which can either offer a sense of inner peace or challenge one's core being. The artist writes that "the creative process is a collaborative effort, but the artist is responsible for the ultimate outcome. I work in a partnership with Nature in order to prepare a space in which I can establish contact with the essence of a form—either from the material world or the world of ideas. A painting gradually evolves from the mutual discovery and exploration between the artist and this form; it is a reflection of this dynamic. The resulting piece of art develops its own independent existence, becoming a new form creating a potentially infinite number of interactions and interrelations with the viewer."
