The art of wearing art: Igor Mitoraj’s jewellery

Category:

In partnership with Atelier Mitoraj, Contini Art Gallery is proud to present for the very first time The art of wearing art: Igor Mitoraj’s jewellery at Calle Larga XXII Marzo in Venice.

Opened to public fanfare on May 19, this exhibition displays a selection of exquisite jewellery. The relationships between tradition, taste, harmony and beauty come to the forefront – the very aspects that define the artist’s work. Mitoraj pays attention to jewellery, which rather than being viewed as a mere accessory is revered as an artistic masterpiece to be worn.

Vintage Playroom Ideas Perfect for your Little Hipster

But good design, above everything else, doesn’t have to be or to feel modern, per se.  If you happen to be raising a little hipster (which is totally cool, hipsters are incredible trendsetters) or happen to be one yourself, we believe you’ll enjoy these designs as much as we do.

Inside Belmond Hotel Caruso Amalfi

Once I read that if the landscape of human emotion was to exist in a country, it would be Italy. And I honestly couldn’t agree more. I have been overlooking the breath-taking view of a magical suite, onto the unreal scenery that is the Amalfi coast. I am left speechless, and not just today. But in the ‘right here and right now’ of every time I visit the Italian coast. And get lost in admiring it in all its beauty. And felt the implacable urge share this sublimity with others. So here’s my homage and reportage for today: Inside the Belmond Hotel Caruso in Ravello.
