Lea Simone Allegria
I’ve been truly amazed and humbled to see that so many immensely talented artists got inspired by The Mediterranean theme and responded to our first Open Call.
The blossoms, sea salt, a strayed towel laying lazily on a rock, fresh lime on a blue bowl, the Mediterranean is a state of mind, melting the Greek and Roman myths to the French Riviera, the island of Corsica to Lebanese food, olive oil and terracotta roofs. The Mediterranean is a spirit, a golden skin and long afternoon nap, a family dinner, an evening breeze, an anisette.
The collection features 10 artists coming from the USA, Portugal, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and so on. They vary in technique, background and career stage.
I have selected them among over 400 candidates, without knowing who they were nor where they where from, just by falling in love with their art.
You’ll find drawings, paintings, pottery, all united by the Mediterranean vibe.
