Michael Ross whose inspired idea created Fine Art Sails continues his global adventure, this time in Italy: Sails designed by International artists were featured at the incredible 'Barcolana Regatta’ in Trieste with participation from some high level sailors, supporting the Andrew Simpson Foundation. The sails were sailing to Venice the following weekend as a display for the yacht club 'Compagnia della Vela' 2018. Over 200 boats invaded the San Marco Basin together with Fine Art and the traditional sails. The award ceremony in San Giorgio takes place Saturday, 24th November. More info in facebook.
'An Eye for the Buoys' - the hand-painted iconic art sail, is based on my steel panel sculpture portrait 'EVE', available in a limited edition.

Gallery Van Loon and Simons is showing my work.
Being an important centre of the avant-garde art in Northern Europe, Amsterdam has also another, much older and richer tradition – that of realism. Dutch painters were famous since Renaissance through the 18, 19 and 20 century. In the middle of the 20c., a movement called magic realism contributed with important figurative paintings depicting figurative scenes in a fantastic, mysterious scenery.
