    David Popa x Cantenac Brown

    We’re very excited about David Popa’s next collaboration: creating a monumental fresco on the vineyard of Chateau Cantenac Brown.
    David Popa is an artist but also an adventurer. His greatest adventure comes from his unstoppable search to find poetic and diverse locations that will challenge his art, his materials and our conception of nature and its beauty. His artistic and adventurous conception pushes him to always look for locations that are able to combine adventure and large scale art. From islands to ice floats to raw earth at a Chateau, watch David Popa explain his intriguing capacity to work in all landscapes. Chateau Cantenac Brown is going to be taking Popa to a trip down Memory lane as he reconnects with his mother’s bordelese origins and links to the wine region.

    David Popa’s work is starting to take shape at Cantenac Brown. Inspired by the terroir of the winery, the artist created a work building a link between our vineyard, the elements that compose it and our future cellar. A meaningful work at a crossroads between David’s artistic vision, which remains as close as possible to nature, and that of the cellar, made up of raw earth and raw wood. The materials David Popa uses are as powerful as his messages. His ecological message is unique as the pigments he uses match almost identically to the pigments used during the prehistoric area. David Popa’s goal is to take us back to our origins as he searches for the right pigment to deliver the right message.

    Hyundai x Fifa World Cup 2022

    Hyundai Motor Company has announced the launch of its global sustainability campaign under the banner ‘Goal of the Century’. The campaign kicked off on Earth Day on April 22nd, and will run through and beyond the upcoming FIFA World Cup, which will be held from November 21st to December 18th 2022.
    “The ‘Goal of the Century’ campaign aims to unite the world for sustainability, inspired by the pure value of team spirit and togetherness created by the universal love of football,” said Thomas Schemera, global chief marketing officer and head of customer experience division at Hyundai Motor. “At Hyundai, we will continue striving to be of practical help to humanity at a time when it is more important than ever to come together for the healthy, long-lasting future of our planet.”
    To drive the ‘Goal of the Century’ campaign, Hyundai Motor is introducing ‘Team Century,’ a newly formed group of ambassadors that will promote various environmental and social sustainability projects throughout 2022. Former England national team player Steven Gerrard will lead ‘Team Century,’ joined by BTS, Afghan refugee soccer player and Danish UNESCO ambassador Nadia Nadim, American fashion designer Jeremy Scott, contemporary Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn, documentary photographer Nicky Woo, and Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot. In addition, Hyundai also plans to unveil four regional ambassadors in the months to come.
    As well as acting as an ambassador for ‘Team Century, Lorenzo Quinn, represented by MTArt Agency, will work to create a striking installation displayed in Al Bidda Park as part of FIFA’s Fan Festival. A physical manifestation of the ‘Goal of the Century’, the piece will act as a symbol of unity as the world comes together for this landmark event. Set to launch in November 2022 in line with the FIFA World Cup, the design will be revealed in the coming months alongside additional video content featuring Lorenzo.
    As a talent agency, it was particularly meaningful for MTArt to position a visual artist like Lorenzo in this context, appearing alongside major talents from the film, fashion, and music industries. Such a campaign will subsequently make art a key pillar for the 2022 World Cup, reaching wider demographics that may have previously been less accessible.

    Claire Luxton x Hendricks

    We created magic for Hendricks Gin with our artist Claire Luxton. Three iconic UK lighthouses have been transformed with her artistic projections, shining a light on East Sussex, The Wirral, and the home of Hendrick’s Gin, Girvan on the Scottish Ayrshire coast. Commenting on her amazing artworks, Claire Luxton said: “My practice has always had a deep connection to the ocean and nature; I have always been intrigued by its mystery. Living in East Sussex, it’s a joy to find such beauty in the raw, unfiltered shorelines that fill me with inspiration. Working on this project with Hendrick’s Gin is such a special experience and felt really meaningful to bring home how much we take our coastline for granted.”

    Augustinus Bader x Tiffany Bouelle

    Our artist @TiffanyBouelle collaborated with beauty industry pioneers @AugustinusBader to mark the much-anticipated launch of their new haircare range. 

    Tiffany was commissioned to create a bespoke artwork in her signature blue. Drawing inspiration from the cult beauty brand’s Healing Star logo, Tiffany’s beautiful design has initially launched on their exclusive tote bags and will be unveiled in other forms within the brand’s activities for 2022.

     

     

     

    Intercontinental 75th anniversary

    Pioneer in luxury travel, InterContinental, unveils immersive art installation celebrating 75 years of exploring the world in partnership with artist Claire Luxton. ‘The Elegance of Worldliness’ at InterContinental London Park Lane is a commemorative reflection on the brand’s rich heritage and iconic hotels globally.

    A contemporary multi-disciplinary artist, working with photography, installation, poetry and painting, Claire Luxton’s visionary work will transform the façade of the iconic InterContinental London Park Lane with large-scale physical and digital artworks paying homage to the brand’s global journey from the first, to now the world’s largest, luxury hotel brand. The art installation can be experienced for the entire month from 8th December 2021.

    ‘The Elegance of Worldliness’ is expressed through a variety of motifs representing some of the destinations where the InterContinental brand has established a presence in its 75-year history. Portrayed through Luxton’s signature flora and fauna; birds, butterflies, and botanicals, native to distinct parts of the world, are woven into natural, intertwining greenery, reflecting a sense of discovery and exploration, and embodying the desire and curiosity of the global traveller.

    Motifs include a large South American parrot, the blue and yellow macaw, representing Brazil where the first InterContinental hotel opened in Belem, and a North American corn lily plant, also known as Indian basket grass, which pays tribute to InterContinental The Willard in Washington, D.C. where Martin Luther King Jnr. famously made the final touches to his ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. The installation’s Bird-of-Paradise flower, named after Queen Charlotte of the United Kingdom, highlights the royal significance of InterContinental London Park Lane, the location (formerly 145 Piccadilly) where Queen Elizabeth spent much of her childhood.

    ‘Grace of the Sun’ by Robert Montgomery x Octopus Energy x Little Sun

    Solar-powered light poem calls on leaders at COP26 to invest in renewables

    Grace of the Sun: An art installation by artist Robert Montgomery, lit by Little Sun solar powered
    lights and made possible by green entech pioneer Octopus Energy.

    Little Sun, the clean energy nonprofit, announces Grace of the Sun – a solar powered light poem urging commitment to renewable energy at the UN climate conference (COP26). Created by Scottish artist Robert Montgomery, the artwork has been constructed using 1,000 solar powered Little Sun lights and stands 11 metres wide and 5 metres
    tall. The giant solar light poem will illuminate every day at sunset as a poetic beacon of hope for Glasgow.

    After the artwork’s installation in Glasgow (dates 29th October to 12th November) the work will be dismantled and the lights will join Little Sun’s wider efforts to provide clean, affordable solar power to the 600 million people living without electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa, where the nonprofit has brought solar light and power to over 3 million people to date.

    Located at arts and climate justice pop-up The Landing Hub on the Sustainable Glasgow Landing site, the installation is part of Little Sun’s initiative Reach for the Sun to engage creatives in the global movement to highlight the power of solar to tackle climate change and end energy poverty. It calls for immediate investment in renewable energy on a mass scale and the acceleration of net-zero carbon emissions globally.

    The project is enabled by global green energy tech pioneer Octopus Energy Group and supported by Montgomery’s agency MTArt Agency, specialists in sustainable art production, the first certified B Corp®️ UK company within the art sector and a member of the Gallery Climate Coalition. Octopus Energy launched in 2016 with the vision of using technology to make the green energy revolution affordable whilst transforming customer experience. The fast-growth company now operates in 12 countries and is valued at over $4.6bn. Montgomery’s studio and home where the artwork has been constructed over the past months, have both been fully powered by Octopus Energy since the project’s inception.

    Although it provides only 3 percent of the world’s power currently, research suggests that solar can meet the majority of the world’s energy needs by 2040 and is the most powerful means of preventing runaway climate change if implemented now.

    Artist Robert Montgomery says: “We are now at the frightening point where the climate crisis has arrived. I’m thrilled to collaborate with Little Sun and Octopus Energy – this project is a beacon of hope. Instead of looking under the ground for energy we should have all along been looking up. A solution is visible to us all the time, every day: the sun. There’s a great beauty in the realization that the sun is there to save us, if we only make the effort to reach out to it. I hope that others across the world will join us to tell the story of solar’s powerful force for good.”

    “I’ve long been convinced of the power of art and culture to counteract widespread numbness and create change in the world,” added Olafur Eliasson, Little Sun Co-Founder. “The climate crisis is here; we know what needs to be done. We have the knowledge and technology necessary to transition within the next decade to a world powered by renewable energy. Yet knowledge may not be enough. A work of art like Grace of the Sun can help us to recognise that our lives are inextricably linked to our surroundings, to structures and systems and people beyond our local context. If we expand our sphere of care to encompass the natural elements that support life as we know it, we can formulate a vision of a positive future for the generations to come.”

    John Heller, CEO of Little Sun, says: “We believe that art can create possibilities for climate action, inspiring global connectivity, promoting positive action and enhancing citizenship engagement. Little Sun’s work with artists helps us imagine a future that we can’t yet fathom – one where all people thrive and share the power of the sun. We’re thrilled to have joined forces with Octopus Energy whose commitment to green energy and support for climate artists fits perfectly with our mission.” Little Sun, which works with partners to deliver renewable energy to communities in sub-Saharan Africa, is investing in its culture program, says Heller, with the goal of “shifting the public’s perspective on the climate crisis—grounding the climate conversation not in fear and despair but in hope and possibility for what we can create together.”

    Rebecca Dibb-Simkin, Global Director Product & Marketing at Octopus Energy, says: “The world’s eyes are on Glasgow and the transition to renewables needs to speed up if we’re going to have a fighting chance of reaching global net zero. Art has the potential to inspire change, and we hope that the powerful words of a local artist can inspire action on a global scale.”

    ‘Les femmes et l’art’ x Bumble France

    We are so excited to reveal that we have partnered with Bumble to produce ‘Les femmes et l’art’ – a pop-up gallery showcasing female artists!

    We have curated a powerful selection of works by three of our acclaimed French artists, Camille Walala, Delphine Diallo and Zahra Holm. As a dating app focused on equality and inclusivity, Bumble France encourages women to make the first move. This makes them the perfect partners for us to showcase Camille, Delphine and Zahra – female artists renowned for making their own first moves in the art world.

    We are so proud to be leading the evolution of the art industry for women by representing an equal split of talented male and female artists around the world. Camille Walala, our newest MTArt Agency artist, explains, “It is a real pleasure to be part of an all-female exhibition and to create a conversation with Delphine Diallo and Zahra Holm’s works, which are so different from mine – my first MTArt Agency project could not be more aligned with my values.”

    Open in Le Marais, Paris, on 19 to 24 October, during the city’s largest art festival, FIAC, the exhibition highlights the lack of equal representation within the art world.

    Glenfiddich x David Aiu Servan Schreiber

    The world is progressively changing and brands feel the need to align their values with the key voices of our time. It is in this context that the collaboration between visual artist David Aiu Servan-Schreiber and Glenfiddich was born to create the first sustainable packaging in an artistic collaboration context. 

     

    Artist David Aiu Servan-Schreiber whose sustainable reputation and work precedes him was selected amongst 19 artists to help transfer the new messaging of the brand: progressive and bold speaking to much wider demographics. The artist’s limited-edition artwork will adorn the packaging of Grande Couronne 26 Year Old, an opulent whisky finished in rare French Cognac casks, exclusively available in Selfridges from June.

    Featuring emblematic crackles symbolising the smoked wood grains of the meticulously sourced finishing casks during the whisky maturation process, the artwork is a natural juxtaposition of the regal filigree which adorns the Grande Couronne bottle.

    David works with rich, natural materials like wood and fire, resin and gold leaf to provide an exploration of life on our planet, to spark urgent debates around our way of living and delve into the inextricable links between our actions and their effects on the environment. 

     

    Speaking on the collaboration, David commented: “My art is inspired by the natural world and the opposing forces that impact how we interact with it. We see juxtapositions such as this in all areas of life – when we reimagine the old with the new; or find imperfections in seemingly perfect things. This interpretation of the brilliant filigree is raw, unpredictable and emotive. It transforms it into a living thing, one that echoes its origins but harnesses its true power to explore new territories.” 

    In addition to the limited-edition sleeve, David has re-created the design for a full window takeover at Selfridges London between 10th-23rd June, presenting the David Aiu Servan-Schreiber bottle and the launch of Glenfiddich Grande Couronne 26 Year Old at the leading department store.

    The new luxury world is responsible, inclusive and forward-thinking responding to the consumers’ needs and demands. This collaboration – colliding the two luxury worlds – does just that and opens new possibilities to a future where art and sustainable branding work hand in hand.

    Allure x Delphine Diallo

    Our artist Delphine Diallo secured an incredible editorial shoot with the Condé Nast Group. For their very special project « The Melanin Edit », Allure asked our artist to capture 3 dark-skinned women. Skin is such a critical and complex part of the human body, throughout history it has been seen that your skin tone, facial features, and hair texture can determine how you are treated in this world. Her photography is accompanied by three essays about navigating the world with Black skin and the challenges that can be faced. We are proud to see that the photography of our artist Delphine Diallo can be a source of inspiration for future generations to live in a world where women, men and girls and boys can live exactly as they are or exactly as they wish to be. Spot the work of our artist and read the stories on the Allure website.

    « The Melanin Edit » by Allure explores every facet of a melanin-rich life, the project wants to help ensure that Black skin always feels like the gift that it is — a gift to be recognized, celebrated, and protected.

     

    About our artist:

    Delphine Diallo is a Brooklyn-based French and Senegalese visual artist and photographer who graduated from the Académie Charpentier School of Visual Art, in Paris. Combining artistic language with activism is part of Diallo’s ethos thus pushing the many possibilities of empowering women, youth, and cultural minorities through visual provocation – as she has brilliantly done in MTArt Agency’s public art projects. Diallo uses analogue and digital photography, collage and illustration, 3D printing and virtual reality technologies as she continues to explore new mediums. She is working towards creating social change and new dimensions where consciousness and art are a universal language connecting artists, and capable of sharing ideas and learning.

    L’Occitane x Claire Luxton, Art Exhibition

    At the start of January 2021, to give something special to the local community during their daily walks, we worked with L’Occitane to install a new piece of public art in the heart of Regent Street. Public art is important, especially during the current complex context, so it’s a dream to work with our partner L’Occitane and be able to provide an art project that can be enjoyed by everyone thanks to our artist Claire Luxton.

    Our exhibition with our partner L’Occitane now continues inside their Regent Street Flagship Store. For the first time, Claire Luxton’s studio is brought to the public, a large range of artworks are displayed in the store, including Claire Luxton’s most recent works. Like our partner L’Occitane, our artist Claire cares enormously about sustainability. Olivier Baussman (founder of L’Occitane) was inspired by the land he grew up in to bring natural beauty to homes across the world with plants such as rosemary or lavender. It is a great opportunity for us to put forward the work of our artist Claire Luxton alongside the unique environment of L’Occitane.

     

    The project started in January 2021 with the retail activation of the storefront of L’Occitane’s Flagship store on Regent Street, followed by an art exhibition inside the store opening on the 12th of April 2021.

    “Both L’OCCITANE and Claire Luxton care enormously about sustainability. I felt that it was a match in heaven for the values they shared in common but also for the very fact that both the brand and the artist always reference to the colours you find in the countryside. It’s important for us at MTArt Agency to write lovely stories between brands and artists, both with similar aesthetics and visions.” – MTArt Agency founder, Marine Tanguy

    Mytheresa x MTArt Agency

    We are incredibly excited to announce that we are collaborating with global luxury e-commerce company Mytheresa to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021!

     

    Our relationship with Mytheresa started a few years ago when our founder Marine Tanguy won the “Next Woman Award” supported by the brand’s CEO Michael Kliger. Mytheresa is such an incredible success story of a disrupter in the luxury and fashion world, we are proud to work with a brand who like us, disrupts the traditional world they are in and seeks to have an impact.

    At MTArt Agency we support a new generation of women that collect art and fashion from the most inspiring artists and designers. According to economist Clare McAndrew, only 15% of women collect art, and at MTArt Agency, we already have 50% of women collectors, investors and shareholders. We support an array of women who have a strong influence in their respective industries and are able to embed art in their personal and professional lives.

    So, to celebrate International Women’s Day, we wanted to feature a few of these women: our founder Marine Tanguy, our artist Tiffany Bouelle, our Patron of the Year Inès Leonarduzzi and our art collector Noëlla Coursaris Musunka. For this collaboration, the four women welcomed Mytheresa into their homes and talked about the artists and fashion designers they loved such as Chloé, Prada, Simone Rocha, our artists Delphine Diallo, Asiko and Léo Caillard.

    Something that makes this partnership extra meaningful for us is that Mytheresa has offered to support the charities that each of these women most care about by donating 10 000 € to each charity. The charities that Marine, Tiffany, Inès and Noëlla chose are; Choose Love, Fondations Des Femmes, CARE France and Malaika.

    Our founder Marine Tanguy welcomed Mytheresa into her home… 

    (video credits to The Film Farmers)

    Our founder, Marine Tanguy spoke about how art and fashion inspire her everyday life and how she expresses her creativity through the clothes she wears, the art she displays on her walls and the art she sees in the streets. After 12 years in the art world, Marine has built an impressive art collection from Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Walter and Zoniel, Léo Caillard and Delphine Diallo. Many women collectors have since been inspired by our founder and have started to build their own collections. Our founder is also very passionate about integrating art into our cities and her home is near so many of our public art projects in London, for Marine:

    “art and artists have a role to play from every visual that surrounds us, from our house to our street, to the digital and to everything we look at”

    For this partnership, Mytheresa is supporting the charity Choose Love as it was Marine’s personal wish. As part of their “Art’s Female Future” program, the luxury brand will donate a total of 10 000 € to the charity. Marine strongly supports this charity and say that Choose Love;

    “are making sure that women receive the necessary basics to help them take care of themselves and their families, and settle in the most challenging of circumstances”

     

    Our artist Tiffany Bouelle welcomed Mytheresa into her home…

    In her art practice, Tiffany is very much aware of the patterns, colours and designs she creates. For our artist, it is core to her practice, fashion is somehow embedded in her work where sometimes she even works directly with the material and includes textiles in her pieces. Just like Frida Kahlo, whose art has had an influence on fashion, we believe that artists play a crucial role in inspiring fashion brands.

    For this partnership, our artist is supporting the Fondation Des Femmes with MyTheresa. As part of their “Art’s Female Future” program, the luxury brand will donate a total of 10 000 € to the charity that our artist is supporting. Tiffany has been supporting the Fondation Des Femmes for a long time, it is a charity whose goal is to fight effectively against violence and for equality between women and men. In her artworks, our artist has always been supporting all women. She uses her art to raise issues that have been ignored for far too long, including the impact of social networks on women, memory disorder and gender issues.

    “More than ever, it’s important to help women who experience domestic violence. That’s why I support Fondation Des Femmes“. 

    For this partnership, our artist welcomed the brand into her Parisian studio and took them around her inspiring environment. In this video, Tiffany is wearing clothes from Mytheresa’s female collection from Prada and The Attico. Watch the video to have a glimpse of her studio and spot the beautiful artworks she is working on. We believe that it is always very inspiring to see the interior of an artist’s studio, especially the one of Tiffany who is full of colours and shapes!

    Inès Leonarduzzi (Credits Anouk Marty)

    If you have been following us on our social media, you must have heard of Inès and her inspiring background. Inès is our Patron of the Year, she is a successful entrepreneur who has made a career in the tech industry and founded “Digital For the Planet” – a worldwide startup that aims to help citizens and organizations to combine digital and sustainability transitions. For our Patron of the Year, art plays an important role in her life;

    “Art is a world in which I felt safe from a very early age, yet I was not destined to take an interest in it. This is the most beautiful thing: a world that was the preserve of the elite yesterday, is today within everyone’s reach. Art inevitably brings us back to ourselves, it speaks to us constantly.” According to economist Clare McAndrew, only 15% of women collect art, at MTArt Agency we strongly support them and already have 50% of women collectors like Inès. 

    For this ocasion, Inès is supporting CARE France, a charity that fights for women’s rights and against poverty in 104 countries. Ines says “they aim to protect people from homelessness.

    If I can help these women even a little, then it would be the most useful thing I could do for International Women’s Day”.

As well as a successful entrepreneur, Noëlla is a philanthropist and a fashion model who cares about empowering women through education and health. Fashion has had a great impact on her life and has become part of her identity and Noëlla expresses this through the art she has at home and the clothes she wears, “I love fashion, it is a way to express yourself, it’s culture, it’s art, we are at a certain point of time where we need to have a turning point of how we consume, which brands we’re supporting and how they’re supporting the society”

    Like with our founder Marine Tanguy, our artist Tiffany Bouelle, and our Patron of Of the Year Inés Leonarduzzi, Noëlla chose to support Malaika with the help of Mytheresa. For Noëlla;

    “Malaika is the biggest pride in my life. I lead it, I volunteer, and its a pure joy to see all our programs growing”.

    We have been working with Malaika in the past and helped them in creating inspiring environments for the girls staying at Malaika, for us, it is a dream to continue in helping Malaika and include Noëlla’s charity in Mytheresa’s program, “Art’s Female Future”.

    After our very successful fashion show at the Serpentine Gallery, “Anthropocene” with Mithridate in September 2020, we are super proud to continue our relationship with Mithridate with the art of our artists. We do believe in the need for fashion and art to speak more, intertwine their language and share their respective audiences.

The work which reveals Mithridate’s AW 2021 collection is a multimedia interactive experiential work entitled Automatiste”, the title “Automatiste” comes from the French adjective Surrealist Automatism method for creating art.

    Our Los Angeles based duo are internationally known for their large-scale conceptual works, often using performance and advanced technologies in a nuanced and poetic style. At MTArt Agency, we really support the digital and innovative side of this collaboration, this digital art and fashion experience does not require excessive waste and travel and demonstrates how creative minds can come together to create innovative projects like this one despite the restrictions.

    I am incredibly excited to see Mithridate collaborating once again with our MTArt Agency artists Ania and Dejha and showing that the future of fashion is a blend of creativity, retail experience and digital. I really believe that this approach will save fashion brands and enable them to engage and inspire much larger demographics.– Our CEO and founder, Marine Tanguy

    Mithridate x Serpentine Gallery x Dejha Ti & Ania Catherine

    SPRING SUMMER 2021: ‘ANTHROPOCENE’

    A PERFORMANCE INSTALLATION BY ANIA CATHERINE & DEJHA TI PUSHING BOUNDARIES OF CREATIVITY & INNOVATION TO OFFER A NEW CONCEPT TO TRADITIONAL LONDON FASHION WEEK SHOWCASING

    Mithridate’s Spring Summer 2021 collection, entitled ‘Anthropocene’, is translated into a performance installation by critically acclaimed MTArt Agency represented artists Ania Catherine and Dejha Ti, with original music by Daniele Mana.

    Held within the Royal Park grounds of London’s iconic Serpentine Gallery, the performance brings the audience on a journey through the effects of the Anthropocene on the planet and its various life forms. Building on Demon Zhang’s focus on the fragility, vulnerability, and beauty of the life forms that are threatened by this era of unprecedented human impact on the planet, the artists use the stories told through the garments as source material to create a multisensory experience.

    A creative hybrid concept designed to push the boundaries of showcasing a collection during London Fashion Week, amidst unprecedented times, interpreted through an immersive, live performance installation whilst layering digital footage of the collection in projection form to create a unique multisensory experience for the audience.

    The set and props have been carefully considered using found botanicals and woodchip remains to reflect the theme, whilst ensuring all is repurposed after the activation. A collaboration with Diptyque adds to the sensory experience with earth-based notes infused within the grounds.

    Ania Catherine explains: ‘We look at a jacket and ask, what would this jacket be if it were an environment? A world? If it had a heartbeat? How would it sound? And we build that.’

    Models perform within the gallery grounds in designed site-specific vignettes as they embody the concepts; they are doing. The activity of the models is a metaphor for the necessity for collective and individual human action. The concept narrative urges the audience to be aware that to move forward, humanity can’t just exist and continue as we have been, collectively we have to make changes, actively work together to rewrite the status quo.

    Through this experiential work that blurs many lines, the concept aims to leverage the innate power that lies in the human body to inspire others to ‘not just stand there’, but listen, and act. Ania and Dehja worked closely with the models to ensure there is a sense of internalizing this message in rehearsals, looking for them to dive into the story through a mix of choreography and personal reflections on the subject.

    ‘Deep down everyone has an understanding of the urgency of these issues; if we can tap into that understanding, and activate it with a combination of fashion, choreography, the human body, music, installation, and experience design, then we have achieved what we are setting out to do.’ says Ania Catherine. Reminiscent of McQueen’s performances of the late 90s, ‘ Anthropocene’ is designed to evoke a range of feelings and textures, it is sensitive, nuanced, raw, beautiful, and tragic, but ultimately ends with a heavy hopefulness.

    Ania Catherine adds:
    ‘We must u-turn, we must start defining and respecting planetary boundaries.’ Part performance art, part call to action, ‘Anthropocene’ is not the complete story, but a powerful glimpse.

    Mithridate Founder Demon Zhang shared:
    ‘As I approached this collection, particularly during intense moments of reflection under lockdown, I was drawn to the fragility of our world, the beauty found in nature against the impact of human behaviour, the importance to coexist peacefully has never been more necessary; to respect the planetary boundaries, our mother nature. Ania and Dejha bring to life this poignant message beautifully through their interpretation and powerful performance. They inspire me and give me hopeful confidence that creativity can, under challenging difficult times, always find its beauty.’

    Born as a creative response to lockdown, Mithridate’s Spring Summer 2021 collection follows on from a successful collaboration with Catherine and Ti in early 2020, entitled Natural Subject(s) as part of the brand’s ‘Collective Series’, a digital based platform, aiming to reveal an ongoing series as a collective body of work, exploring art as a multi sensory, immersive experience. Zhang’s vision is to grow the brand’s global artistic community, fusing the creative mediums of fashion, art, design and technology as part of the digital offering, igniting creativity through collaboration, providing unity and support under crisis whilst celebrating the power of innovation and creativity despite our world’s challenges.

    Mithridate developed the collaboration concept with award-winning MTArt Agency and its Founder Marine Tanguy, who represents the most exciting up and coming visual artists worldwide, artists with innovative techniques, inspiring content and strong messaging.

    Rosewood London x David Aiu Servan-Schreiber

    David Aiu Servan-Schreiber exhibited a selection of his works from the series Planets and Microcosms, engaging with the exquisite backdrop of the Rosewood London.

    This exhibition showcased the acclaimed series Planets. A series which has not only gathered much traction since its conception by not only selling to some of the most prestigious art collectors during Frieze week in London, but is playing host to a steady and growing following across the globe! Deeming this an incredibly exciting time in the artists career. By conceptualising the cause and effect of humanities actions: Schreiber eloquently depicts the Earth from afar, subtly drawing our attention to the larger and more grandiose scale of our interference, aiming to ignite our consciousness to the callous and unfortunate fact that we are slowly destroying the only home that we have. Our planet.

    Ruinart x David Aiu Servan-Schreiber

    During Frieze London 2019 and Fiac Paris 2019, the world’s oldest champagne house commissioned our artist David Aiu Servan-Schreiber to produce a sustainable artwork. Amongst its different initiatives to reduce its impact and promote a sustainable development, Ruinart commissioned our artist David Aiu Servan Schreiber with a project combining art and recycling. The “Glass House” was inspired by the artist’s “Planet” series and is created to encourage the collect of glass bottles.

    method x Adelaide Damoah x Jasmine Pradissitto x Konvalina

     

    Jasmine Pradissitto, Adelaide Damoah and Konvalina were the faces of the eco-friendly cleaning brand method. They created a new limited edition collection of products featuring bespoke works of art.

    MTArt Agency worked with eco-cleaning brand method to collaborate in the creation of their new limited edition: The Art Collection.

    With The Design Laboratory, and MTArt Agency artists we created and defined the creative direction of the project and handpicked three MTArt Agency artists that all share similar values with method, all of which are passionate about using their creativity to create a better world.

    Through this collaboration method transformed their limited edition plastic bottles into curated works of art, too beautiful to bin. The partnership strives to give artists a platform to share their message, as well as bring joy through art into every home.

    We worked closely with the artists to translate their works of arts onto unique packaging designs for method bottles in such a way that reflects each artist vision and message, using printing techniques and sensorial finished that have resulted in a curated collection they hope will tackle the curiosity of method addicts everywhere.

    The new ranges each come teamed with a sensational fragrance developed by method with each artist and their artworks in mind.

    Jasmine Pradissito

    Jasmine’s creation focuses on transforming throwaway items to give them a new lease of life, using butterflies to represent the hope of transformation and the ability to change.

     

    Zdenek Konvalina

    Konvalina analyses movement and its relation to mindfulness – calling for us to slow down and live in the moment.

     

    Adelaide Damoah

    For Adelaide, the work she has created for method looks to champion female empowerment, encouraging women to believe in themselves and breakaway from the confines of race, gender or class.

    ‘Because the City Itself is Sacred’ Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, London, UK.

    Robert Montgomery x Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, London, UK.

    Public Art installation ‘Because the City Itself is Sacred’

     

    “I have a personal biographical connection to Coal Drops Yard. I am an immigrant to London- for many generations my family were proudly working-class Scottish coal miners. They mined the coal which came here on the trains and once fuelled the city. So, there is a kind of personal romance to Coal Drops Yard for me, and what I love about Argent’s restoration of the place is that they have kept the historical buildings largely intact and preserved the Victorian industrial architecture almost completely.

    “The personal story of the poem is that I wrote it on Christmas night. My uncle Drew McCracken died on Christmas Day, he was the last coal miner in my family. He worked in the mines well into the 1990s. My mother’s eldest brother Robert McCracken died as a young man in a coal mining accident on the 27th August 1969 at the Bethel Mine in Chapelhall, in the village where I was born. Coal mining was hard, dark, bleak and incredibly dangerous work. When I think of the very hard-working lives my grandfathers and uncles had I am humbled that they were such kind and gentle and loving men.

    “Anyway, I wrote the text thinking about them, so they are possibly, for me, the ‘old lovers’ in the poem. I hope for others it has a more universal meaning.”

    Robert Montgomery

    The light poem, Montgomery says, is about the magic of London and its ‘many layers of history’, which he believes to be both an ancient sacred burial ground and a trading post simultaneously. The sculpture was written on Christmas night, in memory of his uncle – the last coal miner in his family – who died on Christmas Day last year. It was installed on Burns Night in a nod to generations of Scottish immigrants who lived in and around King’s Cross.

    “GIVE” at Rosewood London

    For Frieze London, we have launched ‘GIVE’ by MTArt Artist Lorenzo Quinn a new public art sculpture now sitting proudly in the courtyard of The Rosewood London- the biggest public art sculpture we have showcased during Frieze Art Fair.

    Appearing previously in multiple locations around Europe; notably Vicenza, Palazzo Chiericati and in front of the Cathedral of Palermo, Sicily, the installation represents the ‘precarious balance with nature, which needs our protection and nourishment’.

    Visit ‘GIVE’ at Rosewood London, for Frieze and for the month of October.

    ‘Give and expect nothing in return, the rewards will be immense. Humanity is at a turning point, we live in a precarious balance with nature, which needs our protection and nourishment, and in turn, nature will reward us’. – Poem by Lorenzo Quinn.

     

    SciencesPo x Léo Caillard

    Léo Caillard was one of the artists selected for the 150th anniversary of the prestigious Sciences Po.

    Fragmentary Venus Tight

    The Fragmentary Venus is a group of statues representing the oldest busts of the Hellenistic period. The Milo Venus is one of them.

    This Fragmentary Venus is inspired by one of them coming from the collections of the Acropolis Museum in Athens.

    Dating from more that 2200 years, this sculpture with almost perfect anatomical proportions shows the exceptional mastery of antiquity that was only found 1500 years later in the Renaissance. To realise his works, Léo Caillard is inspired by references to antiquity. Here, he works the stone as if it was malleable. Between mineral and organic, the artwork questions our time and our historical belonging to these statues from the past.

    Venus Milo Tight

    The Milo Venus is also part of the group “The Fragmentary Venus”, also called “The Aphordites” because they are from the Greek Hellenistic Period.

    After nature have done its work, it only remains the bust of these artworks dating from the seconf century BC.

    Milo Venus, which was found on an Island with the same name, is one of the best preserved artworks and can be seen at Le Louvre in Paris in all its splendour.

    The technical perfection of the movement of the body and its proportions shows the excellence of the Greek period compared to the rest of the world.

    By sculpting the marble, Leo Caillard seeks to open a dialogue between the past and the present to better build the future. Here, the mineral becomes organic and reminds us how our time is linked to its ancient history.

    Eden By Claire Luxton x Forum des Halles

    We are very proud to have launched the public art project “Eden” – one of the first living and evolving artworks dealing with nature by artist Claire Luxton next to the Centre Pompidou. Phase one, revealed today, is the beginning of the work. This beginning will be small by design, as in nature nothing blooms overnight.

    Phase two is an evolution of the existing work that completes what has already been done. The idea is not only to represent nature but also to imitate it and respect its rhythm. Like a luxuriant flora and a botanical lagoon that takes shape, this work takes time and under the summer sun, under the Canopée des Halles, this work will grow.

    In this phase, we recover the beginning which starts under the staircase by joining the first part of the work, the empty spaces completed and the work is displayed on the walls on each side like a luxuriance, a fauna and a flora slowly taking over the Canopée.

     

    MTArt Agency x TFL tube ads

    Excited to say that MTArt Agency is turning 7 this week.

    Tower Hamlets x Thames Water

    Manhole covers are architectural elements to which not much world pays attention. In 2016, this project put forward this space under our steps playing between the light and the darkness of the street, by a graphic play of light bursting on several horizontal and vertical dimensions. Several bright devices ignite one by one such of the musical instruments playing a partition of light in the darkness of the street. Under plates in the ground, several types of lights in the movement are temporarily transplanted and played by their opening and other performing of railing, to create atmospheres which answer in the city. So from one pavement to the other one answer these lights create a symphony in this urban crossing. Every spectator finds themselves face has a new experiment.

     

    The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee #PinkDifferentJen

    You can now see the 117 artworks of our artist Jennifer Abessira in Central London, thanks to our partner The Crown Estate. They explore 70 years of archival imagery of the reign of the Queen.

    Her Majesty The Queen is the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.

    MTArt Artist Jennifer Abessira is known for her use of pink that she uses to celebrate and highlight either banal moments of our daily lives or historical instants that shaped a whole generation. The pink wave across the full installation represents the mighty ocean’s restlessness. It also represents faith, hope, and joy even in the deepest of troubles. This element symbolises vastness, depth, and continuity. The use of yellow here comes to reinforce the reference that the artist makes to the Bauhaus movement, one where all the arts and crafts were equal and were for all.

    Claire Luxton x Hendricks

    We created magic for Hendricks Gin with our artist Claire Luxton. Three iconic UK lighthouses have been transformed with her artistic projections, shining a light on East Sussex, The Wirral, and the home of Hendrick’s Gin, Girvan on the Scottish Ayrshire coast. Commenting on her amazing artworks, Claire Luxton said: “My practice has always had a deep connection to the ocean and nature; I have always been intrigued by its mystery. Living in East Sussex, it’s a joy to find such beauty in the raw, unfiltered shorelines that fill me with inspiration. Working on this project with Hendrick’s Gin is such a special experience and felt really meaningful to bring home how much we take our coastline for granted.”

    Intercontinental 75th anniversary

    Pioneer in luxury travel, InterContinental, unveils immersive art installation celebrating 75 years of exploring the world in partnership with artist Claire Luxton. ‘The Elegance of Worldliness’ at InterContinental London Park Lane is a commemorative reflection on the brand’s rich heritage and iconic hotels globally.

    A contemporary multi-disciplinary artist, working with photography, installation, poetry and painting, Claire Luxton’s visionary work will transform the façade of the iconic InterContinental London Park Lane with large-scale physical and digital artworks paying homage to the brand’s global journey from the first, to now the world’s largest, luxury hotel brand. The art installation can be experienced for the entire month from 8th December 2021.

    ‘The Elegance of Worldliness’ is expressed through a variety of motifs representing some of the destinations where the InterContinental brand has established a presence in its 75-year history. Portrayed through Luxton’s signature flora and fauna; birds, butterflies, and botanicals, native to distinct parts of the world, are woven into natural, intertwining greenery, reflecting a sense of discovery and exploration, and embodying the desire and curiosity of the global traveller.

    Motifs include a large South American parrot, the blue and yellow macaw, representing Brazil where the first InterContinental hotel opened in Belem, and a North American corn lily plant, also known as Indian basket grass, which pays tribute to InterContinental The Willard in Washington, D.C. where Martin Luther King Jnr. famously made the final touches to his ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. The installation’s Bird-of-Paradise flower, named after Queen Charlotte of the United Kingdom, highlights the royal significance of InterContinental London Park Lane, the location (formerly 145 Piccadilly) where Queen Elizabeth spent much of her childhood.

    Àsìkò x Knightsbridge Estate: ‘Of Myth and Legend’

    The Knightsbridge Estate has unveiled a large-scale photographic installation entitled ‘Of Myth and Legend’ at the top of Sloane Street, SW1. The Estate commissioned the series of portraits from British Nigerian photographic artist Àsìkò to mark the completion of seven magnificent brand-new flagship stores built behind restored façades. Framed by vast windows, the nine super-sized portraits inspired by multi-cultural fashion culture in London, sit at pavement level, with further images occupying the upper windows.

    In a collaboration with MTArt to bring Àsìkò’s work to The Knightsbridge Estate, ‘Of Myth and Legend’ draws its inspiration from the stories of deities from the multicultural communities of London. Through the work, Àsìkò explores shared heritages of African and other cultures to create new narrative blends of mythological deities. The series is composed of fashion photographic imagery and collage symbolism as an interpretation of diasporic ideology using deity iconography. The work explores the connections or shared stories, highlighting we have more in common than we think, and our connections loom deeper through the ages.

    “When I was young I was inspired by the stories of the heroes and mythology of my Yoruba culture.
    These cultural icons form the inspiration for ‘Of Myth and Legend’, which explores the legends of the
    Orisha through new interpretations of the diaspora narrative. From German to Indian, African and Asian,
    the palette of London is wide and vast, a melting point of ethnicities and backgrounds. I am thrilled to
    have been given the opportunity by The Knightsbridge Estate to show this new body of work in such a
    prestigious and prominent address.”
    Àsìkò

    “The Knightsbridge Estate is excited to be exhibiting this brand-new body of art by Àsìkò. We hope that these works of art will bring pleasure to our thriving community, and attract interest from residents and visitors to The Estate.”
    Sarah Waller, Chelsfield’s Senior Asset Manager, The Knightsbridge Estate

     

    ‘The Woman in the Photograph’ by Àsìko x St James Market Pavilion

    MTArt Agency has launched another free public art exhibition at St James Pavilion with the work of our artist Àsìko. Through an anthology of photographs, Àsìkò celebrates womanhood: its beauty, its complexity, vulnerability and strength.

    His conceptual work chronicling photographs from 2015 to 2021 pays homage to the narratives of the female experience as experienced between the U.K. and Africa. The work is made up of portraits, fashion images and digital collages constructed in the narrative that straddles fantasy and reality as a response to his experiences of identity, culture and heritage. Through the use of constructed storytelling and the application of composition, form and movement, Àsìkò draws the viewer into a conceptual narrative of the space of women in society and its intersection of cultural structures. The work is a love letter to the female experience, celebrating its beauty, colour and culture.

    Hundreds and Thousands

    Greenwich Peninsula has commissioned Liz West to create Hundreds and Thousands for The Tide. The artwork wraps 700 metres of the walkway’s glass balustrades, creating a ribbon of undulating colour. The installation contemplates the subtle nuances of light in this unique riverside location as we transition from Spring to Summer. This work is part of an ongoing exploration of colour and scale, using The Tide as an evolving platform.

    For West, Hundreds and Thousands pays homage to The Tide’s geography and proximity to the Greenwich meridian line by behaving as a sundial, therefore, allowing people to see the changing light depending on the time of day and season. The multiple reflective glass surfaces adorned with jewel-like multicolours will reflect people and the surroundings, encouraging and promoting movement around The Tide and making a work that feels like it ‘belongs’. “The experience of seeing my work as you move along and around The Tide gives visitors a kaleidoscopic and rich visual experience that will hopefully trigger feelings of wellbeing and joy.”

    The architecture and design of The Tide, as well as how the space is used by the public, has influenced the intricate design to allow people a fluid and ever-changing experience of the work. Selected colours and repeated visuals have been used to augment and enhance the space and visitor experience. This site-specific work aims to create a new space for exploration and discovery. It depicts and symbolises a physical and metaphorical meeting point of both colours and people. Covering all the glass panels of The Tide, this immersive installation helps join together the different paths across the space. The luminous multicoloured stripes collectively become a rhythmic cacophony of colours, creating a mesmerising mass when viewed from all angles. The work appears to change and morph as you journey around the space. The work encourages you to follow the work around the space, with different perspectives offering intriguing colourways and kaleidoscopic visuals.

    The colour palette aims to encourage positive associations and memories of colour. West makes these colour choices instinctively and intuitively, experimenting in colour mixing to focus on the interaction of colours as well as carefully composing a spatial balance between geometric elements and forms.

    ‘Hipster in Stone’ by Léo Caillard x The Crown Estate

    Heads up! We’ve just launched our next public art installation, on Regents Street with the Crown Estate and our artist Léo Caillard.

    ‘Hipsters in Stone’ is the eye-catching work of Léo Caillard, located next to the entrance of Heddon Street and we’re so thrilled to bring more works of art to the streets of London.

     

    ‘Do you want to change the world with me?’ by Lauren Baker

    9 Porchester Sq is hosting a neon installation by Lauren Baker titled ‘Do you want to change the world with me?’. This work has been brought to you by MTArt Agency and Westminster Reveals.

    Lauren Baker is a British contemporary multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in London. Her artwork poses a question, it’s an invitation, and it is intended to activate your soul’s higher purpose. A sense of mystery and emergence – of connecting with something beyond or much bigger than our own immediate world – pulsates throughout her work.

    Lauren Baker’s work explores human connection, metaphysics and the expansiveness of the universe. Her signature neon works portray the power of energy through her poetic typographic and celestial chakra artworks. Passionate about environmental issues and sustainability, the artist uses light to express the ‘secrets of the universe’ and aims to raise the vibration of love and connection within the world.

    She is an experimental artist whose practice expands across multiple disciplines and mediums to address the vastness of the universe. Conceptually grounded but also aesthetically striking, her work involves making the unseen seen. Baker’s visual style is often built around either emitting or reflecting light.

     

     

    ‘Grace of the Sun’ by Robert Montgomery x Octopus Energy x Little Sun

    Solar-powered light poem calls on leaders at COP26 to invest in renewables

    Grace of the Sun: An art installation by artist Robert Montgomery, lit by Little Sun solar powered
    lights and made possible by green entech pioneer Octopus Energy.

    Little Sun, the clean energy nonprofit, announces Grace of the Sun – a solar powered light poem urging commitment to renewable energy at the UN climate conference (COP26). Created by Scottish artist Robert Montgomery, the artwork has been constructed using 1,000 solar powered Little Sun lights and stands 11 metres wide and 5 metres
    tall. The giant solar light poem will illuminate every day at sunset as a poetic beacon of hope for Glasgow.

    After the artwork’s installation in Glasgow (dates 29th October to 12th November) the work will be dismantled and the lights will join Little Sun’s wider efforts to provide clean, affordable solar power to the 600 million people living without electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa, where the nonprofit has brought solar light and power to over 3 million people to date.

    Located at arts and climate justice pop-up The Landing Hub on the Sustainable Glasgow Landing site, the installation is part of Little Sun’s initiative Reach for the Sun to engage creatives in the global movement to highlight the power of solar to tackle climate change and end energy poverty. It calls for immediate investment in renewable energy on a mass scale and the acceleration of net-zero carbon emissions globally.

    The project is enabled by global green energy tech pioneer Octopus Energy Group and supported by Montgomery’s agency MTArt Agency, specialists in sustainable art production, the first certified B Corp®️ UK company within the art sector and a member of the Gallery Climate Coalition. Octopus Energy launched in 2016 with the vision of using technology to make the green energy revolution affordable whilst transforming customer experience. The fast-growth company now operates in 12 countries and is valued at over $4.6bn. Montgomery’s studio and home where the artwork has been constructed over the past months, have both been fully powered by Octopus Energy since the project’s inception.

    Although it provides only 3 percent of the world’s power currently, research suggests that solar can meet the majority of the world’s energy needs by 2040 and is the most powerful means of preventing runaway climate change if implemented now.

    Artist Robert Montgomery says: “We are now at the frightening point where the climate crisis has arrived. I’m thrilled to collaborate with Little Sun and Octopus Energy – this project is a beacon of hope. Instead of looking under the ground for energy we should have all along been looking up. A solution is visible to us all the time, every day: the sun. There’s a great beauty in the realization that the sun is there to save us, if we only make the effort to reach out to it. I hope that others across the world will join us to tell the story of solar’s powerful force for good.”

    “I’ve long been convinced of the power of art and culture to counteract widespread numbness and create change in the world,” added Olafur Eliasson, Little Sun Co-Founder. “The climate crisis is here; we know what needs to be done. We have the knowledge and technology necessary to transition within the next decade to a world powered by renewable energy. Yet knowledge may not be enough. A work of art like Grace of the Sun can help us to recognise that our lives are inextricably linked to our surroundings, to structures and systems and people beyond our local context. If we expand our sphere of care to encompass the natural elements that support life as we know it, we can formulate a vision of a positive future for the generations to come.”

    John Heller, CEO of Little Sun, says: “We believe that art can create possibilities for climate action, inspiring global connectivity, promoting positive action and enhancing citizenship engagement. Little Sun’s work with artists helps us imagine a future that we can’t yet fathom – one where all people thrive and share the power of the sun. We’re thrilled to have joined forces with Octopus Energy whose commitment to green energy and support for climate artists fits perfectly with our mission.” Little Sun, which works with partners to deliver renewable energy to communities in sub-Saharan Africa, is investing in its culture program, says Heller, with the goal of “shifting the public’s perspective on the climate crisis—grounding the climate conversation not in fear and despair but in hope and possibility for what we can create together.”

    Rebecca Dibb-Simkin, Global Director Product & Marketing at Octopus Energy, says: “The world’s eyes are on Glasgow and the transition to renewables needs to speed up if we’re going to have a fighting chance of reaching global net zero. Art has the potential to inspire change, and we hope that the powerful words of a local artist can inspire action on a global scale.”

    St James’ Market Pavilion x Tiffany Bouelle

    MTArt Agency has partnered up with The Crown Estate and Westminster Council to unveil a new public art project in the heart of St James’ called “Portraits saisonnier” by our artist Tiffany Bouelle.

    The history of these portraits began on a trip to Rome. The artist was strongly inspired by sculptures of historical men and women. The concept behind this exhibition was to create a face that could speak to everyone by mixing features of both genders. These portraits can look familiar, reassuring or calming. To add an extra sensory dimension to these artworks, Tiffany Bouelle has collaborated with the French nose designer Arthur Dupuy and each portrait presented in this exhibition is perfumed with a scent.

    Saype x ECT in Annet-sur-Marne

    Our artist Saype has unveiled ‘Un jeu d’enfant?’, a giant eco-friendly land mural!

    Using biodegradable pigments from charcoal, chalk, water and milk proteins, the painting was created in Annet-sur-Marne, near Paris, on a former wasteland. The site was rehabilitated by ECT, using soil excavated from nearby construction sites, for the benefit of the community and local residents, making it part of a circular economy approach useful to all.
    The theme of this 3,500 square meter artwork echoes the history of the site: Saype wished to interpret its rehabilitation, representing a child playing with a bulldozer. The dimensions of the piece of art give the illusion that the machine is the child’s toy.

    After Switzerland, South Africa, Colombia and Burkina-Faso, this is the next piece of Saype’s ‘Human Story’ series. This emotionally-charged manifesto comes to life in imposing frescoes, featuring men, women or children, coiled in grandiose landscapes to deliver a universal message.

    Walter & Zoniel x Portraits of Intimate Anonymity x The Crown Estate

    British duo Walter & Zoniel bring the series ‘Portraits of Intimate Anonymity’ to the streets of London, a celebration of portraiture, colour and our inner life brought to you by MTArt Agency and The Crown Estate.

    Walter & Zoniel have deeply explored the subject of portraiture. From previously creating works out of 24ct gold on giant format cameras and developing processes using the sweat of their subjects’ faces to create photographs, to shooting portraits of islands and of concepts.

    This ongoing series sees them delve into a new conceptual facet of portraiture. These stylised W&Z’s photographic works offer a unique intimacy and anonymity to a portrait. Each portrait is thickly overpainted, creating a sculptural incarnation of its subjects, whilst allowing both the subject and the viewer space to inhabit the work with ease.
    We are given space to examine, both the subject’s environment and our own natural ‘filling in of the gaps’, our preconceptions and presumptions.

    The impasto over-painting is done as an act of empowerment and focus. Empowering living subjects through anonymity and celebrated in block colour. It draws the viewers focus back and forth between the living subject and their environment, allowing them a separation to stand alone and coexist. The anonymity reflects any judgements made by the viewer back into our own minds. Presumptions about sex, race, age etc. are echoed back to us as the pure presumptions that they are.

    Our minds naturally look for patterns in order to process all the information that we are constantly absorbing. These patterns that we create are just that, creations of our mind, which sometimes serve us well to process information and sometimes do us a disservice by limiting our beliefs. This work is from an ongoing process developed by Walter & Zoniel, where they use the space that this colourful, sculptural interception creates to look deeper into
    our own minds and the lives of others.

    Current Projects in London:

    Perception, Intimacy & Transcendence – Walter & Zoniel’s solo exhibition:

    Perception, Intimacy & Transcendence can be seen in The Room by Turnbull & Asser, 4 Davies Street, Mayfair. It is open from 8th-30th September.

    The original Portraits Of Intimate Anonymity can be seen alongside the artists’ latest series Shit Views; Lo’ The Vision Of Choice. Exploring the themes of perception and transformation, both series are realised as forms of conceptual sculptural photography.

    An Effort – Residency:
    Walter & Zoniel are the inaugural artists in residents for the An Effort art residency, connecting London & Abu Dhabi. The artists will be working in Soho Square from September – November. They will be exploring and realising two new series of works under the mantle of Hidden Nature, ending with a short exhibition of selected works in the Project 13 Gallery.

    If you would like to be invited to one of the studio visits, talks, or a tour of the exhibitions with the artists, please contact MTArt Agency.

    About Walter & Zoniel:

    Walter & Zoniel’s work deals predominantly with the human relationship to the sublime, manifesting in a dynamic range of physical and immersive forms. Through these means, they explore everyday access points to the sublime, and the manner in which we allow or disallow ourselves these experiences. Their studies materialise in works exploring our relationships with nature, the cosmos, the cellular, the social, identity, and awareness.

    Through a conceptual and innovative process-based practice they often expand or develop entirely new processes in order to create their artwork. Working in a spectrum of artistic mediums primarily conceptual process photography and large scale installation. These practices often expand to include painting, sculpture and video. Their artwork is at the same time metaphoric, literal and narrative.

    Together they explore the subjects of inspiration and our innate connections with each other and with the universe, often using their means of production to narrate a story or exhibit a metaphor. They utilize the surrealist, beautiful and ethereal as mediums. All of their work carries the undercurrent of their optimism and mantra that everything is possible.

    Their work weaves their outlooks together uniting their individual takes on the analytical and the ethereal.  Their joint energy fuels further creation and their practice in itself acts as a vessel to push the expansion of their understanding.  Through their meditative processes of creation, which is often deeply physical, they have developed their own unique techniques that focus upon the cyclic nature of existence, embodying the human condition as much within their process as in their finished artworks. Their work merges experiences from both of their scientific and Buddhist backgrounds driven by a commitment to a deeper exploration of the mind and universe and genuine formats with which they can express.

    “Plant Yourself” The Crown Estate x Claire Luxton

    With our partner The Crown Estate and our artist Claire Luxton, we launched our longest current public art project, entitled “Plant Yourself”. After our artist’s public art projects in Central London that started in January 2021, our artist Claire Luxton is continuing to inspire Londoners with her art. For this special project, Londoners are invited to look at their feet level as they wander on Regent Street to spot the beautiful and colourful artworks of our artist on brand new planters. The Crown Estate and Westminster City Council helped Regent Street to create a greener, safer and more accessible West End and we are proud to be stepping in and highlighting it with these super cool photographs. Our partners have worked closely with experts to carefully consider the types of plants and trees they are introducing, to ensure that they continue to improve biodiversity and enhance the experience for Londoners. It’s so important to us to have a positive impact on the development of one of London’s busiest areas and in continuing to improve the future of our high streets with our partners and our artists. To spot our planters with the photographs of our artist, passers-by can start their trail at Oxford Circus and head down towards Regent Street.

    “It was such a unique and special opportunity to be able to work with The Crown Estate, on this reimagining of Regent St. My new public art project “Plant Yourself”, which weaves down a 1.3k stretch of the iconic street, was inspired by the hope of new life and a greener future. I fell in love with the idea that nature had reclaimed both us and the city. I pictured people sitting down, literally ’Planting themselves’, and daydreaming on Regent Street, as the plants started to grow with them, out of their sock and shoes. I wanted the project to be playful and engaging as the public is welcomed back to the reimagined space. Now as you explore Regent Street you see the pathways populated with botanicals, art, trees and seats! A new ecosystem has emerged in the cityscape.”

    – MTArt Agency Artist Claire Luxton

    Listen to our artist Claire Luxton speak about her project on Regent Street on our public art map here.

    About our artist:

    Claire Luxton is a British contemporary multidisciplinary artist working with photography, installation, poetry and painting.  After receiving an BFA from Goldsmiths University of London, Luxton created a challenging series of self portraits & sculptures, pushing her emotional and physical boundaries by becoming both the subject matter and the materiality.

    The Crown Estate x Dede Bandaid

    In collaboration with The Crown Estate, we brought a public art project on Regent Street with the work of our artist Dede Bandaid. « Culture fix » is an ongoing public art project started by Dede Bandaid at the beginning of the first lockdown. It aims at capturing as many people as possible from the cultural sector who are frustrated to not to be able to perform in front of their usual audience. ‘Culture fix’ is Dede Bandaid’s way to maintain local cultures alive while restrictions prevent us from gathering and celebrating together. To do so, the artist gives all kind of creators a temporary stage in the public space to keep a connection with their audience.

    “I was seeking a way to express and heal my wounds. The band aid then became a symbol for all kinds of difficulties – personal and social — seeking remedies.” – Dede Bandaid

    Please meet from left to right four musicians from Tel Aviv who miss live performances very much:

    Or Edry is a dream-pop singer, a songwriter, a bass player, a music producer and a synthesizer freak.

    Sivan Talmor is a singer & songwriter who participated in the first season of “The Voice” in Israel.

    W1 Curates x Andrea Tyrimos

    Our artist Andrea Tyrimos worked with W1 Curates in London, W1 Curates showcases works from some of the most innovative artists from around the world on their digital screens in the heart of London on Oxford Street.

    Created during London’s first lockdown in 2020, Andrea Tyrimos’s painting “Sophie”, wanted to elevate key workers to the status they deserve by shining a light on the crucial work they do.

    Our artist Andrea Tyrimos joined the #LightItBlue project, it is an initiative that is part of the wider #MakeItBlue campaign in the UK – the campaign encourages people everywhere to share their own messages of gratitude and solidarity to the NHS. W1 Curates on Oxford Street, invited our artist amongst others to interpret those messages of thanks and respect in their own unique and beautiful way, so they can be displayed and shared digitally with the world. Sharing art digitally on our platforms and in cities is core to our values in our company, we are beyond happy that our artists can be seen to such a wide audience around the world!

    Andrea Tyrimos’s artwork is diffused on the screens every Thursday from the 4th of February 2021 (end date to be confirmed).

    L’Occitane x Claire Luxton

    At the start of January 2021, to give something special to the local community during their daily walks, we worked with L’Occitane to install a new piece of public art in the heart of Regent Street. Public art is important, especially during the current complex context, so it’s a dream to work with our partner L’Occitane and be able to provide an art project that can be enjoyed by everyone thanks to our artist Claire Luxton.

    Our exhibition with our partner L’Occitane now continues inside their Regent Street Flagship Store. For the first time, Claire Luxton’s studio is brought to the public, a large range of artworks are displayed in the store, including Claire Luxton’s most recent works. Like our partner L’Occitane, our artist Claire cares enormously about sustainability. Olivier Baussman (founder of L’Occitane) was inspired by the land he grew up in to bring natural beauty to homes across the world with plants such as rosemary or lavender. It is a great opportunity for us to put forward the work of our artist Claire Luxton alongside the unique environment of L’Occitane.

     

    The project started in January 2021 with the retail activation of the storefront of L’Occitane’s Flagship store on Regent Street, followed by an art exhibition inside the store opening on the 12th of April 2021.

    “Both L’OCCITANE and Claire Luxton care enormously about sustainability. I felt that it was a match in heaven for the values they shared in common but also for the very fact that both the brand and the artist always reference to the colours you find in the countryside. It’s important for us at MTArt Agency to write lovely stories between brands and artists, both with similar aesthetics and visions.” – MTArt Agency founder, Marine Tanguy

    St James’s Market Pavillon x David Aiu Servan Schreiber

    David Aiu Servan Schreiber at ‘It’s later than you think’

    MTArt Agency’s Cabinets of Curiosity in central London’s St James’s Market Pavilion inspire wonder, excitement and intrigue. Filled with artworks by MTArt artist David Servan Schreiber, the open air exhibition, ‘It’s later than you think’ features pieces of art and objects that have been carefully curated to provide a moment of reflection and contemplation, offering a haven of tranquility.

    ‘It’s later than you think’ is a mirror series commenting on pressing environmental issues. The mirrors are cut in two by a pool of gold, reflecting human actions on planet earth. The textured gold invades the mirror’s reflective surface, leaving the viewer to see only a section of their own reflection, suggesting how our human presence invades earth, and that very presence will soon be submerged as a consequence of the damage we have done to it. One is challenged to see both themselves and their planet’s treasures simultaneously, encouraging onlookers to face their individual responsibility.

    The works in ‘It’s later than you think’ will be one sale at accessible price points and will also include pieces from Servan Schreiber’s Planet and Microcosm Series. The works in ‘It’s later than you think’ are a world exclusive and can only be acquired throughout the duration of the exhibition, until 1 November.

    Each week, Servan Schreiber will leave a trail of clues that will lead to a planet mirror hidden somewhere in London for a lucky art-lover to find.

    David Aiu Servan Schreiber’s artworks invites us to explore and think about our planet at large, and then draws us in to examine it close-up. His work focuses on our beautiful home, our planet, and visually represents both its beauty and the impact we have had on it. His work brings hope for the future and a reminder that beauty can always be found.

    MTArt Agency is delighted to be able to provide an uplifting and very accessible response to Frieze London 2020 with portfolio of positive and hope-filled public artworks installed across London that includes locations such as Piccadilly Circus, Prince’s Arcade, Rosewood London, St James’s Market Pavilion and Covent Garden.

    To find out more about ‘It’s later than you think’, or to purchase a work, please contact us info@mtart.agency.

    LONDON, September 2020 – Sofitel, the ambassador of modern French style, is to share ‘Joie de Vivre’ (The Joy of Life) with London from 28 September – 19 October through Silver Lining, a major new art installation situated in the St James’s locale to inspire passers-by to look for the silver lining in life as they navigate this new era.

    Located within the world-renowned neighbourhood of St James’s, found nestled between Haymarket and Piccadilly within the City of Westminster, Silver Lining will be a metaphorical ‘welcome back’ to the Capital with a surrealist work marking the first ever collaboration between MTArt Agency’s artist duo Ania Catherine and Dejha Ti and the esteemed poet Greta Bellamacina. St James’s has a rich history of art, with its multitude of galleries, auctions houses, dealerships and other art related businesses. Silver Lining is a thread that runs among these historic institutions, inviting everyone in the area to experience the art on offer.

    The commission, which brings to life Sofitel’s much-loved ‘Joie de vivre’ philosophy, will see numerous locations within St James’s creatively re-imagined by Catherine and Ti with shimmering ribbons of silver, interwoven with a powerful, hope-filled verse from Bellamacina’s inspirational poem which has been uniquely conceived as part of the commission.

    An instinctive fit, Ania Catherine and Dejha Ti take a surrealist approach to the Silver Lining concept.  Employing nuance within scale, they focus on producing an emotional response instead of a spectacle for their audience when being immersed in the artwork. Poet, filmmaker and actress Greta Bellamacina’s moving poem responds to this emotional ambition with thought-provoking, uplifting reflections about each and every day. MTArt Agency’s expertise lies in telling stories through art by incredible artists. By creating this public art project that resonates with the local community, it will encourage visitors to view St James’s in a new and playful manner.

     

    Silver Lining  presents an artistic walking route that highlights a variety of treasures found within St James’s, renowned for its unparalleled experience of art and craftmanship.  The route includes: Waterloo Place: St James’s Market, The Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain (commonly known as ‘The Eros Fountain’) in Piccadilly Circus and Princes Arcade on Jermyn Street. Each location aims to surprise, delight and provide an impactful personal experience for all who see it.

     

    Silver Lining will form part of Westminster City Council’s Inside Out Festival which will see a range of arts and cultural activities taking place on the streets of Westminster from 1 October.

     

    Upon de-installation of the work, the artists will repurpose all the silver lining and use it as source material for a limited series of abstract works on canvas, the first time Ti and Catherine will work in that format. Their repurposing of materials is their way to preserve and hold the essence, the air and the passers-by that touched the silver at this time in history, and preserve it in a way that can be appreciated and reflected on well beyond the duration of this art installation. It also aligns with their practice to be conscious of and minimize the environmental impact of their work.

     

    Whilst it remains a unique time to explore central London with the streets a little quieter, this mesmerising artwork aims to underpin how the Capital remains alight with enticing creativity and optimism for the future.  Whether located in the heart of a bustling city like London, Paris, New York or Sydney or nestled away in the quieter landscapes of Thailand, Egypt or Morocco, every Sofitel address is a call to indulge in, and celebrate, the pleasures of life: To live the French way.

     

    The installation and its beautiful, emotive words aim to serve as an optimistic immersive reminder to us all to enjoy re-exploring London with Joie de vivre.

    GRETA BELLAMACINA SILVER LINING POEM:

    BEHIND THE DAY, THE STARS CHIME IN CANDLES

    EIGHTY YEARS OF A THOUSAND MORNINGS BURIED IN IMPOSSIBLE MONUMENTS

    SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A SMILE FROM A STRANGER

    THE REBIRTH OF MAGIC IS IN EVERYONE

    THE RAIN CLEANS THE TICKS OF THE WILD WIND

    THAT GETS IN FROM TIME TO TIME

    HOLD UP THE PUDDLES LIKE MAGIC

    AND I WILL SWIM ACROSS FOR YOU

    YOUR LOVE IS A KINGDOM OF ESCAPE

    REBUILDING EVERYTHING SACRED

    A PASSAGE OF HOPE

    TWO COLOURS HOLDING A SUNRISE

    THE MORNING LEAVING THE NIGHT

    WE LIVE IN THE CITIES BUT OUR DREAMS ARE WILD GOATS ON THE SIDE OF MOUNTAINS

    FARAWAY FROM HERE THERE IS A BONFIRE BLOWING OUT TOWARDS THE SEA, HOLDING AN IMPOSSIBLE KIND OF LOVE THAT HOLDS US THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES

    WE SIT ON THE STEPS OF RENAMED STONES

    OWNING NOTHING BUT IDEAS OF NEW CIVILISATIONS WE WILL NEVER REACH.

     

     

    QUOTES:

    João Rocco, Vice President Sofitel Brand, says:

    “With ‘Silver Lining’, Sofitel wishes to add a touch of playful Joie de vivre and sparkle to London, a city that hosts all three of our UK hotels.

    “2020 has been a challenging year for us all and through this moving and hope-filled commission, imagined through the first-ever collaborative work of Ania Catherine, Dejha Ti and Greta Bellamacina, we look forward to inspiring locals and visitors to discover their own Silver Lining as they re-explore the treasures of this world-renowned city and neighbourhood.”

     

    Artists Dejha Ti and Ania Catherine, represented by MTArt Agency says: “With this commission by Sofitel, we wanted to create something in the public sphere that could be stumbled upon and serve as a reminder that even through immense loss, turmoil, unexpected changes, and hardship, there is good coming out of this time.

    “We imagine children passing by and asking a parent why the steps are painted silver, and that moment sparks an intergenerational knowledge transfer that will remain with the child likely for the rest of their lives: a lesson about how to look for the silver lining in any situation, no matter how bleak. We take a position of heavy optimism, recognizing the difficulties of the past, carrying forward only the aspects of our systems that still serve us, and feeling empowered to discard the rest. 

     “Voices and perspectives that have never been truly listened to are finally being heard and considered, that is a silver lining. 

     “People are cherishing the relationships they have and the minutes they have with people they love more than ever, that is a silver lining. 

     “There is a realisation that we can adapt; we can live, think, create, work, and connect in new ways that one year ago we never could have imagined, that is a silver lining. 

     “We are living in a potent reminder of how the things we believe to be concrete may actually be malleable, that is a silver lining. 

     What ideas, movements, communities, forms of life can now thrive, that couldn’t in our existing structures? This new understanding of the agency and power that people have both individually and collectively have, is a silver lining.”

     

    Artist Greta Bellamacina says: “Poetry is like the weather, just when you expect the day to be over there is always a little bit of sunlight left somewhere close waiting to surprise you. Hopefully these words will be a way to bring people closer to that final bit of light and a reminder that hope is closer than you think.

    “The coming together of the artists and their mutual creativity perfectly exemplifies Sofitel’s Art of Living.  Very much a community project, furthermore, Sofitel recognises the benefit that art provides in fostering happiness, and inspiration in a year that has culminated in a collective craving for positivity.  MTArt Agency’s expertise in storytelling and creating public art projects with exciting artists that resonate with the local community will encourage visitors to view St James’s in a new and playful manner.”

     

    Marine Tanguy, MTArt Agency’s Founder says: “MTArt Agency cares deeply about public art projects, and we have been delighted to work with Sofitel and St James’s on this uplifting project, matching our artist’s creative vision to create an immersive experience that encapsulates hope and positivity for the future, We know from the academic studies we have published, and our experience over lockdown, that public art boosts wellbeing, which is more important than ever.”

     

    Oliver Smith, Head of St James’s says,St James’s is immensely proud to host Silver Lining. As one of London’s most original neighbourhoods, stitched together by craftmanship, this artistic and creative display depicts both the cultural heritage of the area and provides a unique experience for our customers working, shopping and living in St James’s. We look forward to welcoming visitors to The West End to explore the beautiful artwork and poetic words in a safe way.”

    Horizon of Day and Night,
    Horizon of Day and Night is intended to interact with the path of the sun so as to orient our presence in light, space and time. As axial points on the horizon’s circle, the glass monoliths are oriented towards the rising and setting of stellar lights on the horizon and their relational ‘Azimuth’. Of these lights, the sun is chief, being the symbol of consciousness, governing the temporalities of astronomical and seasonal cycles and illuminating experience.

    Ville de Paris x B Corp x The Guardian x SOS Méditerranée x Saype

    In a polarised world where mental and physical walls are being erected, Saype launched the largest human chain ever created in 2019 with a 15 000 sq meter biodegradable fresco in Paris, just under the Eiffel Tower. The Beyond Walls project shows interlaced hands united in a common effort for every human individuality to be granted rights of way and civil ones. The project conveys a universal message of plural humanity.

    The Paris fresco marks the beginning of a 3-year project visible in the major cities around the world. The gigantic frescoes have already inspired many in Berlin, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, Geneva, Andorra, Ouagadougou, and Yamoussoukro.

In the middle of the hustle and bustle of London bridge’s train station, our team wrapped the bollards in front of the station. These colourful bollards a way to use the public sphere as a canvas to express creativity. The colourful and vibrant images of our artist Jennifer Abessira principally exist online, she uses social media to create unique images, but here our artist used these images outside in London’s street for passers-by to enjoy.

    Euston Town Art and Cultural Strategy

    In partnership with Euston Town and Camden Council, MTArt Agency wrote the cultural strategy for Euston Town, creating tangible goals for the cultural development of the area, notably in public art.

    Euston Town is a partnership funded by local business, tasked to ensure that all stakeholders and communities benefit from the major construction taking place. The strategy is devised in partnership with MTArt Agency and supported by Camden Council’s Art Development team. This arts and culture strategy represents our commitment to helping to create a thriving creative scene, driven by the people who use the public realm.

    For this project, MTArt Agency won the Best Arts & Culture Programme.

    At MTArt Agency, we strongly believe in the impact that art plays on the future of our streets, winning this award is very meaningful to us, as it recognizes how this strategy is innovative and creative. To engage with the local arts community, we worked with the Euston Town BID and the Camden Council to craft a cultural strategy that would support and enhance the neighbourhood’s arts and culture programmes in the midst of infrastructure developments.

    “A dynamic arts and culture scene that responds to Euston’s rich history and spirited communities, placing them at the centre of an exciting future London.”
