Claudine Belmas Gregoire

Painting on canvas : first and foremost, there is the obligation of the gesture, the impetus that propels me to deposit, connect, build with colour. The reality : a process of perpetual shift of colours, proportions, while taking the precaution of not touching one’s subject too closely. There are incidences which occur between the canvas and myself; encounters between those painted incidents and the eye of the viewer. The imagination: the joy of living, the concrete for the expanse of things, and painting through what one sees, a little of what one thinks. And also – The Mythology: inventing how …

The Mirror Mirror Project

Art is a curious thing. Good taste and what is beautiful vary greatly from person to person. The artist VIVI A has been creating art for the last 30 years in many different ways. She has published books, designed logos for blue chip companies and won awards for graphic design. Her ability to look into your soul and design the perfect name, logo or personal identity is part of her creativity. She has recently started to explore digital imaging and her latest exhibition, Mirror Mirror, has been snapped up by the 5 star hotel Le Mas Candille in the French …

Art in Focus – Richard Mas ART

All about art – before getting involved with I Love Cannes – my knowledge of art was very, very limited. Yes I did know about the Picasso’s etc of this world – and yes I do appreciate a good bottle of wine, sunsets etc – can they be considered as art? Well I guess so – from what I gather art is in the eye of the beholder and definitely a heart/soul feeling. Each of us has our own favourites & styles. The Cote d ‘Azur – is defiantly a magnet to all artists and art lovers – you just have …

Its the 7th October and MIPCOM is in full swing at the Palais des Festivales – the sun is back, the sky is blue – and I am scooting around. Riding slowly around Palm Beach – I am making the most of the fantastic weather we are having – then suddenly……. SPARKLES of colours in the park – what is happening – what am I seeing??? A herd of Cows in CANNES?  What an amazing sight. Of course NOT real ones! These are very very special – life size fibreglass cows – each one designed by local artists. You will …

Artistes du Monde Cannes

What an amazing encounter  and what an even more amazing exposition… which takes place every year in September coinciding with the Royal Regate Yacht dates – and this year being the fifth consecutive year in a row. Have you ever walked by an Art Gallery and never stepped in, as in my case? Either because there was no-one else in, looked too expensive for your pocket, or simply art sitting around on its own. Perhaps too cold and impersonal and when you do step in ….no real explanation about the artist – apart from some brief history ? What I want …

The Mirror Mirror project

The fashion world is often seen as materialistic and superficial, even though the designing and making of clothes is an art form. We are attracted by the beauty in the ­window ­displays, wishing to aquire the ­creations we see and desire. But the display also ­reflects something else; the beauty you can not buy that is seen through the glass. The sea, the sky, the trees and ­the architecture. It is this merge of two worlds, in the layers of what is displayed in the ­fashion shops and on the other side of the street, that is ­reflected in the …
