VALI IRINA CIOBANU: VISUAL HISTORIES AROUND THE WORLD – FROM MAP TO ART – January to May 2018
We are delighted to invite you to an incredible special exhibition.
Even if you just came back from your holidays spent all over the Globe, the maps painted on leather by the artist will send you again into an imaginary journey, geographical and historical.
The Exhibition will include a collection of 3 original maps on leather prepared according to an old recipe by Leonardo da Vinci that Vali has successfully revived and also smaller original sketches with characters from the maps and also different sizes prints on canvas of the original maps plus of other maps that were sold after Vali’s exhibition of the National Museum of Maps and Old Books in Bucharest.
Also, the handmade carpets made using antique techniques out of hand spun& naturally dyed wool will still be on display in the Gallery, together, the maps painted on leather by a contemporary artist and the contemporary rugs, will recreate the Renaissance ambiance of the event.
