“When I say artist I mean the one who is building things … some with a brush – some with a shovel – some choose a pen.” ~Jackson Pollock
AVENIR ARTIST DINNER AT AUBAINE MAYFAIR
It was a sunny evening on Friday, 29th as we made our way to Aubaine Restaurant in Mayfair. The table was immaculately dressed with pink roses, spotless white plates and table place cards with our names beautifully handwritten.
Our guests arrived shortly after 7pm, to a champagne reception, stylishly dressed to impress each outfit reflecting their unique and in many ways artistic character. Fashion designers Ada Zanditon and Nik Thakkar of Ada + Nik wore their signature colour black, layered up nicely. Painter Ewa Wilcyznski as always looked like a walking piece of art in a pastel coloured tutu skirt. Model and painter Sang Woo Kim was dressed in double denim like he had just stepped off the SS'15 Dior runway (given his resume, It wouldn't be a surprise if he did - you'll find Sang staring alongside supermodel Cara Delevigne in the DKNY campaign)
Our other guests included the beautiful British poet Greta Bellamacina, alongside poets Robert Montgomery and Zimon Drake, and painter Tristan Piggot who has just been nominated for the BP Portrait Award. Fashion designer Fei Feng arrived on time in her vintage kimono- style dress while gallery director and art dealer - Marine Tanguy added a much needed touch of her French chicness.
