October and November, Trieste and Venice, Italy
See the short video
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.
Sails of the artists are featured in this Cowes Yachting article. (photo credit: Fabio Taccola and Pierpaolo Lanfrancotti).

Read the Cowes Yachting Article, Spring Edition 2013 about all participating 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.
