Roz Delacour at Aqua Art

“Light is everywhere, from the universe to the inside of our cells composed of electromagnetic particles. We are light. Since the inception of my work, I have been pursuing my exploration of this fragile reality that surrounds us. The desire to transcend mater is at the near of all my endeavours: from photography to filmmaking and writing. Both the artist and the scientist seek to demonstrate an intuition, a moment of insight.”

Roz Delacour

Lavenair Art Miami Fairs

LAVENAIR injects vibrancy through his dynamic brushwork over the fashion magazines. His artistic reinterpretation of the glossy pages breathes new life into the images and obtains a visual dialogue that transcends the boundaries of creativity. He immerses himself in the art work in order to write his own story. The form emerges subtly through gesso, juxtaposed colours, drips, oil pastels, acrylic and collage.

Lavenair considers himself a neo-expressionist painter, influenced by pop art. When he paints, he thinks of the muse and music.

“Emphasising the look and lips of the model are essential when I create an image. It reveals her inner beauty and thoughtful language.”

Fasnibay is a seeker, a wanderer, an absolute urban photographer whose lens captures the essence of the city in a unique and captivating manner. His works, reminiscent of a collage expression, are pure reflections of the urban landscape, presenting the city in multiplied layers. Fasnibay, the dandy, a figure of rebellious elegance, and a passionate cultural personality deeply immersed in the heartbeat of the city is unequivocally Parisian. He is a hunter of the grand shop windows where fashion moments intertwine with the reflected architecture and the passersby, capturing the vibrant pulse of the city.

In Fasnibay‘s photographs, the colors are as vivid as the city he so tenderly serves. Paris, the brilliant, the shiny, the exuberant, is encapsulated in his surprising collection of photographs that he has carried throughout the decades. His photographs transcend mere visual documentation; they tell stories of the ever-changing urban landscape and the dynamic interplay between fashion, architecture, and human presence.
