Exciting rendezvous with creativity

Over the week­end the Acces­si­ble Art Fair held in Brus­sels gave a chance to many col­lect­ors and lov­ers of paint­ing, sculp­ture and art pho­tog­ra­phy to expe­ri­ence a real enjoy­ment. This pres­tig­ious art bou­tique was arranged again at the Con­rad Hotel halls and pre­sent­ed 50 art­ists from 10 coun­tries. Tal­ent­ed art­works, pri­ces suit­ing every budg­et and direct inter­ac­tion between art­ists and the audi­ence made the Acces­si­ble Art Fair a suc­cess sto­ry in its 5 years and 10 edi­tions. Along with Brus­sels, the fair is staged once a year in Antwerp. This year we had Art Fair also in Tel Aviv, and aft­er a month we will gath­er again in Bra­ti­sla­va, said its founder and direct­or Ste­phan­ie Man­ass­eh.Michi­el van der Bos is Dutch but he lives and works in Antwerp. Along with draw­ing, Michi­el deals with inte­ri­or archi­tec­ture. Indeed, he holds a diplo­ma in archi­tec­ture and this marked his paint­ings. Pow­er­ful, col­our­ful, fresh, as the author described his works. Ima­ges are paint­ed on sev­er­al sep­a­rate mod­ules. This pro­vides per­form­ance and con­nec­tion in the paint­ings, Michi­el explained and point­ed out four can­vas­es – the whole con­tent of ‚Shark in blue water’. That makes the paint­ings strong­er, he urged. The works at the fair are intend­ed to cre­ate beau­ty, com­fort, har­mo­ny in homes, offi­ces and any oth­er inte­ri­or. The French art­ist Kalin­ka Stoy­an­ov pre­sent­ed five can­vas­es and a hem­i­sphere shaped plas­tic. This whole col­lec­tion can cre­ate a vibrant atmos­phere in any hous­ing space. I’m not draw­ing, I’m writ­ing on the can­vas, it’s the best way to express my mes­sa­ges, met­a­phor­i­cal­ly described her works Kalin­ka, the art­ist with such a beau­ti­ful Bul­gar­i­an name. The audi­ence great­ly appre­ci­at­ed the small sculp­tures ‚rzez­ba rys­un­ek’, imbu­ed with humour and a cheery wink, made by the Pol­ish sculp­tor Les­zek Michal­ski. These three days the Acces­si­ble Art Fairs in Brus­sels became a love­ly and excit­ing ren­dez­vous with cre­a­tiv­i­ty for quite a few art admir­ers.
