Each installation will display a rotating collection of paintings featuring a wide variety of techniques and styles by internationally renowned artists from all background and ethnicities such as; Wei Min Tang, Andre Desjardins, Pier Toffoletti, Dmitri Danish and Ramon Pujol. The paintings, will be installed as “mini galleries” within the hotel and be on display for the enjoyment and purchase of hotel guests and visitors. In addition to the art installations, Monarch Gallery and La Valencia will be presenting featured artists at the hotel, as well as offering a variety of educational art programs. Monarch Gallery is located just down the street from La Valencia on 1205 Prospect Street, Suite A, La Jolla 92037.
The collaboration kicks off: June 26th, 2013 in the hotel’s conference room “La Galeria” and will feature the following two artists:
Spaniard, Ramon Pujol:
Ramon Pujol admires the styles of many different artists like Cezanne, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, and especially Monet and Manet. His main influence, although, is nature. The colors, changes in light, luminosity and opacity inspire him to depict amazing light reflections on water with the precision of super realism. His favorite place to paint is one of the regions closest to his hometown known as “Catacas” Northern Spain.
Italian, Pietro Piccoli:
Piccoli is the definite artist of ‘the Mediterranean World’. The essence of the Mediterranean is color and light; hence, everything in Piccoli’s works focuses on these two elements- painting cities, beaches and seas with a compelling blend of realism and abstraction.
