Swiss Art Gate UAE together with Roberto’s Abu Dhabi, presents a selection of artworks by renowned Swedish mixed media artist, Fabian Edelstam. The exhibition shows eight big and small sized mixed media artworks from the artists’ extensive travel experiences through the Far-East and with portraits of various celebrities.
Edelstam uses photographs on canvas alongside oil or acrylic paints, giving his audience a visual feast of texture and colour. His canvasses feature celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, The Supremes, Salvador Dali or Audrey Hepburn.
“This show is a collection of impressions that I have created from travelling to the Far-East and other inspirational destinations. A fusion between East and West; Jing & Jang. Portraits or landscape photos could be long forgotten images found in old family albums that I give a new lease of life to”, says the artist himself.
The exhibition gives a vibrant and amiable touch to Roberto’s Abu Dhabi interior, which offers its own exceptional features with slick Italian design central to the Roberto’s branding. Roberto’s Abu Dhabi is located on Al Maryah Island in the capital, at the Rosewood Hotel.
