London Art Biennale 2015
London is the global art capital and the London Art Biennale is where the contemporary art of the world is presented. The Biennale 2013 took place at the Chelsea Old Town Hall and gathered artworks from approximately 40 different nations; artists who have exhibited in some of the most important museums in the world as well as emerging artists who have been selected for their talent.
The London Art Biennale is solely dedicated to works on canvas, sculpture and drawing. The 2013 presentation attracted thousands of visitors during the exhibition and the collateral events - such as a charity auction including an original Andy Warhol, conducted by Nicholas Bonham, heir of the family auctioneer dynasty and Bonham's Auction house founded in 1793. The Biennale takes place on the King's Road, Chelsea, where artists such as Augustus John and Alma Tadema established what is known as the true artistic centre of London. The Chelsea Old Town Hall was designed by John Brydon in 1885, an architect who was commissioned to realise very important projects including the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Memorial Hospital, the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath and the Government Offices, Great George Street, London. The venue offers a prominent and elegant Victorian setting with an ornate vaulted ceiling, brass chandeliers and mahogany panelled walls; a magnificent bow-fronted stage with stairs curving down to the floor, creating a warm atmosphere while the original artworks depicting historical characters associated with Chelsea provide a sense of heritage. The Chelsea Old Town Hall is the ideal setting for this celebration of contemporary art that is the London Art Biennale.

Art with Heart
I wish for my art to create a universe from a viewpoint of peace and tranquillity. I intend for my works to be expressive and passionate while delicate in shape and composition. I very much like to work with colours and spend quality time on the execution but also on the concepts that I am trying to communicate eloquently. I believe that my work can be defined as "Art of the Mind" but also as "Art of the Spirit", touching upon ideas and sentiments that are important and too often neglected. I like my paintings to be able to speak to and intrigue the viewer.
