The show is launched!
In 2010, I discovered like-minded symbolists at the french bienalle: Chimeria. It was a turning point in my life. At that time I had given up on the gallery scene because i could find no group which was ready to embrace my mystical "weird" world of symbolism. Lo and behold through this large show, i found the doorway into a great adventure of discovery, synchronisation, inspiration and collaboration.
I was so blown away that so many like -hearted artists existed but were so invisible, I started making a series of books which flourished into shows, events, concerts, conferences all over the planet. At the last bienalle, Chimeria invited my group as the guest of honor. It was a moment of full circle. I was now able to bring new International artists back into the fold where my own adventure had begun.

The events take place in three buildings and we had an inauguration in two of the buldings: Salle Marcilette being the first stop.
Seen here: Mayor of Sedan, myself , Carrie Ann Baade, Alain Margotton, Martina Hoffmann, Emma Watkinson
and then on to the inauguration in the castle.

People enjoying the show
there were a lot of other good artists in our group and at the show but I only have so much space on this page. I would however like to share a picture from the Peruvian group of artists. Their stand was amazing:
...and to sign off a fun picture of Marylene Leterrier, the head of the bienalle with myself.
