The spotlight is on the exclusive evening event at the headquarters of Bellini Nautica, where a one-of-a-kind creation is presented in preview. The fusion of art and design, united by aesthetic taste and attention to detail, prestigious finishes and excellent performance. The protagonist is an iconic Riva Aquarama reinterpreted by the style of the French artist who, through the interplay of light and shadow, light and dark, creates a rhythm that transports the guest into a serene reality, where the balance of the repetition of millions of dots prevails.
The artwork presented is part of the Four Seasons series, a collection of four creations developed on a square surface, each of which depicts a season with flowers and fruits that become interchangeable subjects, expertly mixed. The creations required an impressive 2,000 hours of work, with an average of 500/600 for each one.
The artistic project will be exhibited at the Bellini Nautica shipyard and will be freely accessible on Saturday, June 10th and Sunday, June 11th, at Via largo del Lavoro in Clusane d'Iseo (BS). This will be an opportunity to showcase, in addition to a series of works created to celebrate the collaboration with Bellini Nautica, a genuine tribute to craftsmanship and to what was created by humans in ancient times, when extreme dedication and great skills were required.
