After a fantastic and intense week of exhibition at the 2019’s NordArt art fair, I am back in the calmness of my studio, where I’d like to take a moment to share the experience with you.
For the 2nd consecutive year I’ve been invited to exhibit my work at the prestigious NordArt annual art fair. Taking place in Hamburg, Germany, this event gathers contemporary artists from all continents in a 22’000 m2 space where our art is given the space to resonate. Alongside 200 others artists, I was privileged to present my paintings in such an incredible setting and to represent my country as the only invited Swiss painter.
Above are my two monumental paintings and several pieces from other artists you could discover while wandering at NordArt. The place is vast, the light natural and the pieces from the different artists flow together. It’s a delight to walk around the exhibition and feel the mix of cultures and influences emerging of this place. What an incredible work of scenography from the curators.
Look at the crowd ! More than 5000 visitors were recorded. This is maybe what touched me the most. Art should not be restricted to a certain audience of experts, but to everybody ! Events like NordArt are exceptional because they too believe it and are working to showcase art as it should be. Once again, I’m thankful for being part of this year’s edition and I wish NordArd a bright future !
Best, Bernard Garo
