French Kiss : Amylee’s paintings come to life
Today my post is in english !
Just below, check out Presse Release text, a new project organized in Belarus.
“On 21st November at 7 p.m. a photo exhibition of women’s portraits « French kiss» is opening at Mon Café (Minsk).
«French kiss» is a brave experiment that will brighten up Belarusian winter. Live flowers and vivid colours on wonderful portraits create a gallery of elegant and unusual images.
«French kiss» is an international project. We found our inspiration in the gentle and flirtatious paintings by a French artist Amylee Paris. Photo exhibition at Mon Café is an attempt to “animate” the Parisian splendor of her artwork. The exhibition will last till 1st February, 2014.
-1/ The idea :
The guests of Mon Café tried on the images the bright imagination of the young Parisian created.
The authors attempted to preserve the style of Amylee’s paintings, and most of the work was done live – the unusual colourful shadows were the result of light effects and the skill of the body art painter, the stylists replicated the hairdos and the make-up and prepared outfits, while eminent models restlessly improved their physical abilities copying the original bends at the painter’s canvases.
«French kiss» is ten portraits – fashionable images combining the simplicity of earnest feelings and the flirtatiousness of a present-day city lady.
Forget winter at Mon Café!”
