Art Gallery Marshall Murray exhibits a selection of my work in a beautiful sculpture garden Fern de La Gorra in Southern France. Highly recommended – a visit when you're near Monaco! Please email Oliver Hawkins (by appointment only).
The stunning garden near Monaco presents more than 40 artworks. Marshall Murray loves bringing a slice of British life to the Cote D’Azur, hosting viewings inviting art lovers and artists to meet and mingle over glasses of rosé. Since September 2015 Marshall Murray exhibits British sculpture in southern France, a collaboration with the award-winning international garden designer James Basson, his sumptuous planting juxtaposed with sculpture. Lighting of the garden is installed by Jean-Phillipe Weimer. Watch the video (Marshall Murray Facebook) or open more images with following link:

‘Fine Art Sails‘ Regatta 2014 Cowes

Star_Regatta_1
6 Stars competed in the 2014 edition of the Fine Art Sails Regatta, which was held in the premier sailing location in front of the Green in Cowes, during Cowes Week. Whilst earlier in the day, Cowes Week racing had been abandoned due to fickle breeze, the Star’s start time of 1700 meant that they experienced champagne conditions of 12-14kts and glorious evening sunshine.
This was the second edition of this unique event which was put together by RTYC member Peter Bonham-Christie, with Michael Ross and his CNM Estates Company, including my artwork “An Eye for the Buoys”, based on “EVE”, a steel panel suspended portrait in limited edition.

'Fine Art Sails' London 2013

Begbie_LondonBoatShow

Read the article in COWES YACHTING, Spring Edition 2013 about all artists and the project:
A weekend of Fine Art Sails* racing at the London Boat Show 2013 was won by the boat and crew with my sail 'An Eye for the Buoys’.
Michael Ross' official CNM Estates UK Star Championship regatta award went to Xavier Rohart and Serge Pulfer.
Fine Art Sails is the first-of-its-kind collaboration between World Class Yachting and Internationally acclaimed artists. Established in 2012 by concept founder Michael Ross of CNM Estates, Fine Art Sails invites artists to create original artwork sails. I am delighted to take part!

My artwork for the sail is derived from 'EVE' 2008, a limited edition flat steel-panel sculpture translated into a sail format.

I am particularly impressed by how the origins of the 'Art Sails' idea have transformed from street art and graffiti painting into the initiation of a completely new art form, literally inventing a new 'canvas' on which artists are invited to work. I'm also simply amazed at the momentum and speed at which this project has moved and gathered force since it began in 2012.

The ethos of the 'Art Sails' concept and of Michael Ross' desire to draw together the seemingly disparate worlds of nautical sailing and 'the Arts' is potentially as versatile and expansive as the invited artists can make this concept themselves, culminating in an artwork of truly magnificent proportions. I am pleased and honoured to take part and as the image I have created for this project is derived from an existing sculpture, which in itself is originated from a tiny passport photo, this demonstrates how adaptable and surprising the 'Art Sails' concept actually is.
