  • Jim Dine  (+)

    Biography : Jime Dine ia an American painter, graphic artist, sculptor, and poet who emerged during the Pop art period as an innovative creator of works that combine the painted canvas with ordinary objects of daily life. His early work consists primarily of images on canvas to which three-dimensional objects (e.g., articles of clothing, garden tools) are attached. His reputation was secured during the 1960s by his wittily incongruous painted images of tools, clothes, and other utilitarian and household objects. He is particularly associated with the bathrobe and the stylized heart. The subject of Dine’s work of the 1970s remained commonplace objects, but he showed a growing preoccupation with graphic media and exploitation of nuances of line and texture.

  • Wang Keping  (+)

    Biography : Born in Beijing in 1949, the Chinese sculptor Wang Keping currently lives and works in Paris. Wang Keping is a self-taught sculptore and works mainly with wood, a material that he respects, highlighting its the natural curves. A founding member of the group “Xing Xing” (Les Etoiles), with Ma Desheng, Ai Weiwei and Li Shuang, he leaves China in 1984 to exile himself in Paris. This expatriation comes along with a sliding of political subjects towards a more personal and more contemplative approach centered on the body, essentially feminine. The wood, the highly alive material, allows him to develop an organic language. Wang Keping does not hesitate to let dry supports selected during several years before sculpturing them. This media and its peculiarities so guide his work which logically favors uncluttered forms and movements. He lives and works in Paris. He admires artists such as Maillol, Brancusi or Zadkine. Starting from 1986, he shows his works at the Zürcher gallery and in 1989 he has a show at the Georges Pompidou Center and the Museum of Modern Art of Taiwan. Wang Keping has been selected by Art+Auction (Artinfo.com) in the Top 50 Next Most Collectible Artists. His work ‘Silence’ has been selected by the CNN as one of the ’10 art works that will change the way you see China’ in 2014. In 2015 Artprice.com published an article about his artworks’ market value entitled ‘Le Cas Wang Keping’ (The Wang Keping Case).

  • Gianfranco Meggiato  (+)

    Biography : Gianfranco Meggiato was born on August 26, 1963 in Venice, where he studied stone, bronze, wood and ceramics sculpture at the Istituto Statale d’Arte. At the age of 16 and then 21, he was selected by the Municipality of Venice to exhibit his works at the Galleria Comunale Bevilacqua La Masa in San Marco Square, where he presented three culptures in Vicenza stone and semi-refractory clay. In his work, Meggiato gets inspiration from great masters of the 20th century: Brancusi for his pursuit of the essential, Moore for the inside-outside relationship in his culptures about maternity, Calder for the sense of space. Space, in fact, is a real element in Meggiato’s work and empty parts become just as important as full parts. The artist shapes his sculptures inspired by biomorphic tissue and the labyrinth, symbolizing the tortuous path of humanity looking for its essence, and revealing his recious soul. Meggiato thus invents the concept of “introsculpture” in which the observer point of view is drawn towards the inner part in the artwork, not only restricting on the surface. «On a formal level, space and light don’t define the work, sliding over it as if it were in-the-round; they indeed penetrate inside it, wrapping its lattices and tangles, reaching the central sphere point as as a quintessential point of arrival» Starting from 1998, Meggiato has taken part in many exhibitions and art fairs all over the world, including USA, Canada, Great Britain, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Holland, France, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Principality of Monaco, Ukraine, Russia, India, China, Arab Emirates, Kuwait, South Korea, Singapore, Taipei, Australia. In 2007 he exhibited monumental sculptures at OPEN 10 International Exhibition of Sculptures and Installations, in Venice; between 2007 and 2009 he was active with many personal exhibitions as in the National Museum of Musical Instruments in Rome; Palazzo Senato in Milan; Museo Correr (Marciana Library) in Veni

  • Jules Olitski  (+)

    Biography : Jules Olitski (March 27, 1922 – February 4, 2007) was a Russian-born American painter who was instrumental in the development of the Color Field school. Like his contemporaries Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis, Olitski stained the surface of his canvases in a technique that rejected the gestural brushwork of the then-popular Abstract Expressionist artists. With their emphasis on material, surface, and color's emotional strength, his signature works eliminated the illusion of depth and any evidence of the artist's touch. His abstract "spray paintings" of the 1960s are considered landmark works of this movement.

  • Simone Pheulpin  (+)

    Biography : Born in 1941, Simone Pheulpin is a French textile sculptor who lives and works in the Vosges. Her works are the result of an instinctive expression that uses both the suppleness and firmness of an untreated, natural material, a simple nonbleached cotton. From her fabric strips and thousands of pins, a veritable vocabulary of forms and shapes with an organic allure, a supernatural world where surprising rocks and the seabed take form, sprung from her spirit and guided by her hands. For Simone Pheulpin, a fundamentally atypical textile sculptor, folding is a language, her language. Her strips of raw cotton, tirelessly stacked, twisted and connected, produce organic sculptures that reflect Simone Pheulpin’s intense, deep, astonished perspective on nature and convey her view of the world with infinite poetry. Her sculptures will be exhibited in May/June 2018 in the New Design Museum, London (Loewe Foundation, Craft Prize) and have been exhibited in amazing places full of history such Venetian palaces, mansions in London, Paris and Brussels, Swiss chalets, or European palaces (Hotel Plaza Athénée in Paris, the Hotel de la Paix in Geneva, the Fairmont Monte Carlo, the Conrad Brussels, ...). In unique museums such as "Villa Empain" in Brussels, "the Museum of Contemporary tapestry" in Angers without forgetting the United States and Asia. These worldwide exhibitions have allowed Simone Pheulpin’s artworks to integrate the prestigious Public Collection of Victoria and Albert Museum in 2018 and contemporary art Private Collections.

  • Benjamin Shine  (+)

    Biography : Award-winning artist and designer, Benjamin Shine has established a multi-disciplined creative approach dedicated to challenging perceptions through original constructional ideas and craftsmanship. Following his studies in fashion design at Central St Martins in London, Benjamin has spent over a decade exploring the potential of materials to express ideas through his artworks, public sculptures, fashion, furniture, and product designs. Benjamin is most known for his tulle works, which centre on ideas of impermanence, energy and the fleeting moment – each made by pleating and manipulating the delicate material into form with an iron and often generated from a single uncut length of tulle. Benjamin's Tulle Flows are a continuos single length of flowing tulle, each conveying clarity out of chaos, hence the depiction of faces in states of peaceful meditation. Benjamin's work has attracted a range of clients encompassing fashion labels, product and interior manufacturers, international Arts and Design institutions such as The Crafts Council, UK and The New York Museum of Arts and Design. Global brands include Givenchy, Barclays Wealth, MTV, Eurostar, Deutsche Bank, Coca-Cola and Google His 2013 fashion collaboration with Givenchy saw him develop his signature tulle technique alongside Givenchy’s Creative Director, Riccardo Tisci, creating a limited edition series, which blurred the lines between art, sportswear and Haute Couture. Most recently, Benjamin was invited to collaborate with John Galliano for Maison Margiela. The resulting work of couture was shown at Paris fashion week 2017 and received worldwide recognition. Benjamin has become one of the most wanted artists in NY after his famous installation “Seeing Through The Material” at Bergdorf Goodman, 5th Avenue, New York. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has already acquired Benjamin's works.

  • Robert Indiana  (+)

    Biography : Robert Indiana was born Robert Clark in New Castle, Indiana on September 13, 1928. Indiana was one of the preeminent figures in American art since the 1960s. He has played a central role in the development of assemblage art, hard-edge painting and Pop art. A self proclaimed “American painter of signs,” Indiana has created a highly original body of work that explores American identity, personal history and the power of abstraction and language, establishing an important legacy that resonates in the work of many contemporary artists who make the written word a central element of their oeuvre. One of the central figures of the Pop Art movement, Robert Indiana takes his inspiration from commercial signs, claiming: “There are more signs than trees in America. There are more signs than leaves. So I think of myself as a painter of American landscape.” In his paintings, sculptures, and prints, he mimics and re-arranges the words and numbers of a myriad of signs, including the Phillips 66 gas station logo and the “Yield” traffic sign. He is most famous for his “LOVE” paintings and sculptures, first produced in the 1960s. Creating a block out of the word—with the “L” and the “O” set atop the “V” and the “E”—Indiana has effectively inserted his own sign into the mix.

  • Roy Lichtenstein  (+)

    Biography : Roy Fox Lichtenstein was born on October 27, 1923, in New York City. Lichtenstein attended the Franklin School for Boys, a private junior high and high school, and was graduated in 1940. He studied painting and drawing from the model at the Art Students League of New York . He entered Ohio State University (OSU) in Columbus in the College of Education. His early artistic idols were Rembrandt, Daumier and Picasso. He was one of the most influential and innovative artists of the second half of the twentieth century. He is preeminently identified with Pop Art, a movement he helped originate, and his first fully achieved paintings were based on imagery from comic strips and advertisements and rendered in a style mimicking the crude printing processes of newspaper reproduction. These paintings reinvigorated the American art scene and altered the history of modern art. Lichtenstein’s success was matched by his focus and energy, and after his initial triumph in the early 1960s, he went on to create an oeuvre of more than 5,000 paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, murals and other objects celebrated for their wit and invention.

  • JonOne

    Biography : John Andrew Perello, aka JonOne, Jonone or Jon156, is an American artist, most famous for his Graffiti-influenced art. Born in New York, JonOne used the energy he felt from the city to find freedom in painting his urban landscape. While he has evolved from his early tagging days, his art continues to be inspired by the “Urban Jungle” from his youth. JonOne’s paintings defy the “rules” of graffiti. With a tremendous sense of movement and color, his compositions combine freestyle, hand-painted aesthetics with a sense of repetition akin to textile patterns. His work has often been compared to that of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock and French artist Jean Dubuffet. By layering precise strokes and vibrant color, he creates a uniquely balanced yet dynamic visual experience.

  • Manolo Valdes  (+)

    Biography : Manolo Valdés is a Spanish artist, born on March 8, 1942 in Valencia, Spain. He is a painter, sculptor and a printmaker, best known for his association with the artistic group known as Equipo Crónica. Declaring himself “a consumer of art and its history,” Manolo Valdés ranges deftly across mediums, producing witty, art-historically informed drawings, paintings, prints, and sculptures that explore history and contemporary culture, politics and everyday life. Approaching each medium as part of an interconnected whole. Trained as a painter, Valdés grew up imbibing the works of Spanish masters like Diego Velázquez and Pablo Picasso, later becoming influenced by Pop Art. With Rafael Solbes and Joan Toledo, he formed Equipo Crónica group (early 1960s-1981), utilizing the Pop idiom to criticize Spanish dictator Francisco Franco in scathing paintings. References to Spain abound in his work, in portraits resembling its royalty, sculptures recalling Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, or in the recurring, semi-abstracted figure of the Infanta from Velazquez’s Las Meninas (1656). Manolo Valdés currently lives and works in New York and in Madrid.
