Fine Artist from around the globe will gather for one exclusive luxury event during Festival de Cannes to promote peace through the arts. The invitation only exclusive event will exhibit Contemporary and Traditional Fine Art before collectors, spectators, and esteemed Film Industry tastemakers seeking compelling works for future film projects. The evening will showcase fine art, fashion, and music to celebrate cultural diversity, in a luxury setting. AFI World Peace Initiative’s Executive Director of International Arts, Thomas Maes will be the curator of the fine arts exhibition. In addition to seeing a group of international esteemed fine artist, AFI World Peace Initiative will recognize Lifetime Achievement Honoree Gabriel Meiring who will also be in attendance and exhibit select works. “Our supporters are going to enjoy viewing international fine art, while we also provide eye candy with fashion, and enhance our atmosphere with music and fine dining. There are many exclusive luxury events that take place during Festival de Cannes. What makes our event unique is a luxury setting, where we are hosting a smaller group of art lovers, seeking to have intimate dialogue and one on ones with fine artist, and esteemed filmmakers, while also promoting a good cause. Exclusivity and quality guests who can appreciate and buy select works through our auction and in general will be in attendance. Peace is important , and art is the longest form of humanity where when we are no longer here, it remains. Therefore, through art and provoking dialogue we can eventually have peace, with an understanding and appreciation of culture this is what AFI is all about,” stated multi-media talent and founder Princess Angelique Monét. In addition to an intimate fine art exhibition guests will enjoy viewing art and sampling private label Grani d’Oro of Montecarlo a boutique luxury coffee distributor based in Monaco, and regional wine and champagne.

As I see Princess Angelique Monét’s passion to bring quality and top art before luxury settings such as Festival de Cannes. I believe art and film go hand in hand. We are seeking to be innovative with our one day fine arts exhibitions before tastemakers, and provide our VIP guests with introductions to artists they have always wanted to meet, and may not have. I also believe international artist will benefit with our unique affairs because they are being brought before a different setting of film executives, and set designers and it is the emerging artist that must be promoted for the future of our arts, only through collectors seeing the importance of investing in the future of art, can we create more Da Vinci, Michelangelo’s. The future of AFI and it’s fine art events is fruitful as this is not just an art exhibition, it promotes peace and culture, in addition to having an innovative approach to everyone enjoying themselves. I am looking forward to our affair, and we are lining up more outside of the existing United Stated markets,” stated Fine Artist Thomas Maes and Executive Director for International Arts AFI World Peace Initiative.

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT HONOREE GABRIEL MEIRING

A.F.I. Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Gabriel Meiring was born in 1946 in Johannesburg (South-Africa). In 1968 he moved to Belgium to complete his education as a concert pianist. Challenged by a friend, he started turning his focus also on painting. His success of his first exhibition in 1975 in Deurle (Belgium) convinced him to start concentrating on pencil drawings, lithography, painting in tempera, acrylic and even oil on silk – a delicate and unique technique. As diverse as Gabriel’s techniques, as different are his many ways of expression: besides painting large wooden wall panels, he also paints on porcelain and concert piano’s (Blüthner). He also designs leaded windows and nteriors for clients. This interior design integrates his panels in peaceful colors with a daring and warm color magnificence of the luxurious fabrics he chooses alongside. This way Gabriel magically turns a home into a tasteful palace. Since the 1980’s the demand for private exhibitions of his work increased tremendously. This in combination with many piano recitals became to much for him. For three years he retreated to Capri to perfect his knowledge of anatomy and technique. After returning a large amount the orders started pouring in. Thanks to long days of work he can carry out the numerous orders ever since. With his work he tries to accomplish a picturesque balance between color, imagination and a special technique, which is probably a heritage of his classical education. Or as a critic writes: “The artworks of Meiring suggest a musical movement even though they speak their own picturesque language”. Comparing his paintings to his music is nog just a means to comprehend the technique of his works. The paintings generate an emotional and spiritual stimulation which is to be compared with the blessed feeling one gets from listening to a well performed concert. The emotional timbre of his work is being developed by the use of mythological and symbolic theme’s. His style can be described as ‘Intimate Symbolism’, which portraits the emotional and spiritual content of his art. The meaning of this expression is bizarre, supernatural and unreal. Many types of art are being created and seem to be visual poetry in the development stage. The recurring designs he uses are elegant figures of extraordinary grace and exotic creatures. Often shaped in gold and silver leaf and rich patterns. The subject of his ‘poetry’ is the emotional space and spiritual atmosphere of his own inner world. The artworks of Meiring evoke feelings of Art Nouveau or Vienna Secession of the early 20th century. With Gustav Klimt he shares the taste for elegant figures, complicated decorations and layers of dazzling patterns as well as the refined and sometimes erotic sensitivity. To accomplish these effects it’s necessary for the artist to have absolute control over his tools. The finish and refinement of Meirings work is perfect and every part of his artworks deserve the attention of the viewer. According to Meiring all the paintings have to be a joy to the senses as well as the spirit. To reach a larger public Gabriel released in 2006 a wonderfully illustrated monograph in English, because he also has many clients abroad and in the Middle – and Far East. The book received a double Sappi Award for best art book of Europe and the world.

Thomas Maes (1983) – BELGIUM Painter, Sculptor, Designer, Fine Art Curator


He has had 30 Solo and group exhibitions at Gallery’s and Top Art- fairs Worldwide. His works are drawing the attention of international collectors; his Sculpture designs and paintings are published in the fine art book Contemporary Masters, contemporary Sculptors and art magazines. The artist is influenced by a number of fields, including design, technology, science, architecture, and archaeology, as well as art history. With such innovation evident in his work, The visionary Artist Maes is destined to take the art world by storm.
Thomas Maes, born 1983 in Belgium, shows an extraordinary collection of paintings with ordinary objects in an unusual context. They attract the viewer’s attraction by giving new meanings to familiar things. The use of ordinary objects in unfamiliar spaces is joined to his desire to create poetic imagery as well as his consciousness to think about the Universe. Thomas Maes described the process of painting as the art of putting colors side by side in such a way that their real aspect is effaced, so that familiar objects – clouds, amphora’s, houses, trees or cubic forms – become united in a single poetically disciplined image. The poetry of these images dispense with any symbolic significance, old or new. Each of these recurring themes can be interpreted differently and has significant meanings.
His paintings titled “Dark Matter”, “A New World” or “Civilization” represent visible images which evoke a kind of mystery. Thomas Maes` constant play with reality and illusion can be attributed to his interest in history, science and culture. Since seven years, the Belgium artist is living and working at the Greece island of Crete, surrounded by the ancient Minoan civilization and archetypical, archeological find spots. In his artworks Maes is back and forth playing, zapping on and off with reality and illusion, reflecting his constant shifting back and forth perception during his mental time journey. Since many years Thomas Maes formed his own signature in a very clean, concise and exacting style. Thomas Maes is interested to inspire us, because his works represent both dreams and apparent paradoxes at the same time. The themes and motifs encourage thinking about our world, about the Mankind, Genesis, Macrocosm and the Universe.(Written by; Art History Consulting / Management: Dr. phil. Barbara Aust-Wegemund)

Can you tell us a little about yourself? Where are you from?
I was born 1983 in Belgium and lived there for most of my life until I came to Greece 7 years ago. I always loved to travel end explore new things, I believe it is important as an artist to taste different cultures and be interested in whatever is available. Life is an interesting place to be, many things to learn and discover. (An unending source of inspiration)
Were you always interested in art? What sparked your interest?
As small boy I was already interested in art had some talent in it. Maybe a little from my mother’s side…(the talent) Already as a child I was making small sculptures, demontating old TV and electronic equipment that I then remounted to new drawn design…. To the big worries of my father, when I tried to put them in the electricity..;-).. not to forget that to his big surpprise most of the times they truly worked.. Hahahaha Later on also followed some drawing lessons as well as art history… But the true spark started when I came to Greece. Restarted drawing and sculpture got to know an art professor who inspired me a lot. Worked for a while for the archeology making detailed drawing from their finds. Until I started to make my first own exhibitions from paintings, sculptures and drawings, wherefrom I almost instantly sold all.

What medium do you enjoy working in the most?
woooo that’s difficult….. All!!! hahaha… I like to change from medium, try different ones and love to work with all of them!! Always open for a new challenge…
Is there a subject you find yourself painting a lot?
Mostly symbolic and surrealistic work. In my paintings I reflect subject of what goes on in our world, Reflected in a new parallel universe or world. Through symbolism I bring different aspects of problems and solutions to the front. So to make my viewing public to think for their selves and give them the freedom to discover. We live in a word full of surprises and interesting things, I like to inspire people to look deeper! I spent a lot of time in research and making design drawings for my paintings before touching any canvas.

Where do you find inspiration for your artwork?
I what ever my interest goes to that moment…. I remember reading in a book about the universe, reading about dark matter and dark energy. This made me think deeper in to many different aspects and making a painting about it. As well one time it was the people there desires a psychology that leaded to the interactive hi-tech painting the desires (published in the book international contemporary masters)
Can you describe your creative process?
I think the on top already includes that 🙂
Do you have any advice for young artists out there?
Been an artist is difficult you have to fight a lot, most in portent is to always stay believing in your self!! Stay doing what you do and be patient! But don’t forget that things don’t drop out of the sky!!! Art is a business and a business you have to manage!! And get from time to time out of your atelier to promote your work!!!

What do you like to do in your free time?
Work some more…. hahaha! if you want to reach something you do it a 200% Many think how, you are an artist you have a lot of free time…. NO in this job you are always working!!!! But if I have free time I go for a hike or coffee with friends….;-)
Anything else you’d like to share?
With this I would like to thank some of my artist friends and family for there support and inspiring me on my road!!!
