5th Annual CREATIVE MISCHIEF Exhibition
I was immediately blown away by the International artist born in Bulgaria, but based in London and New York, Ida Ivanka Kubler‘s artwork The Birth Of An Idea. Organic in appearance; abstract in presence. Her artworks have a being and an atmosphere that transmits to the viewer calmness and vibrancy at once. I felt touched and enlightened. No wonder, I have since learned that this series has proved to be immensely popular and are now found in collections in the UK, Guernsey, France, Spain, Germany, India, Norway and the US.
Ida has said that she will just create one hundred of the Birth Of An Idea series. Not one more. She is already over half way. The one I saw was a two-colour artwork: bright sunny yellow in the middle and sky blue. The yellow merged into the blue. The simple circle settings consisting of an abundance of sculptured silk cocoons on a large canvas. Ivanka Kubler has created two and three colour versions of the series, some with additional elements like ink markings or red and blue dots. Talking to her she is excited by doing a full gold version – though this will have to wait for a discerning collector to commission it.
Spring 2016 Campaign
We are thrilled to introduce our Spring 2016 campaign!
We believe that collecting art should be about what you love, not what you think you should love. The pieces that complete your space should be a reflection of YOU, and that's why we are launching the ART. COLLECT YOURSELF. campaign.
So without further adeui, we present you with the Spring 2016 campaign...
This season we teamed up with a group of talented people who helped us materialize our mission: collecting art should be a representation of your personality!
Our idea took shape with the zebra sculptographic artwork entitled The Botanist, courtesy of artist Anna Church, and Colab-Collective (Toronto, Canada). The Botanist set our creativity on fire and thus, our campaign was born.
Learn more about the campaign from our designer, model, photographer and more on our blog.

Aruban artist Elisa Lejuez has kicked off her latest solo exhibition at the S Artspace Gallery in New York City’s SoHo neighbourhood. The exhibition, which is called “We kiss the joy as it flies,” officially launched on March 20. It is the second solo exhibition for Lejuez in the United States, featuring a collection of her mixed media techniques of blending of shapes, patterns and colors that incorporate her global heritage........
This exhibition featured a selection of her new collection "We kiss the joy as it flies" in which she was inspired by the basic authentic Zen philosophy of enlightenment and total awareness of the moment. Elisa's process is intuitive and meditative and goes beyond her mind-enclosed egos. You will discover a composition made of spontaneous gestures, a deeper dimension of reaching new forms. "I'm engaged in a spiritual quest, a secular search for wholeness and see my process of making art as a kind of meditation."says Lejuez.
Giorgio Kiaris has nothing in common with the web surfers or mixed-media artists who are cutting all the links with the codes and the rules of classic painting. Indeed, Giorgio Kiaris artwork is tightly linked to natural events and, consequently, his paintings refer to ecological themes such as: the earth, sea, and even the seasons. His paintings gather a chromatic energy that enhances their value in a heterogeneous variety of tones and colors. Kiaris creativity is not accidental, but always the fruit of a subtle calculation. "I have been able to find the main balance, thanks to the analysis of three elements: totality, transformation, and self-regulation. This brings me to a mature choice and all who view my work to a consciousness of who we all are"Giorgio Kiaris has nothing in common with the web surfers or mixed-media artists who are cutting all the links with the codes and the rules of classic painting.
