Raffaello Somazzi Presents Cosmic Portraits at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit
S Gallery at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit is currently hosting a new exhibition of ‘Cosmic Portraits’ by Raffaello Somazzi.
The good-humoured and spiritually-minded artist created his first cosmic portraits in 1985. Subjects included Queen Elizabeth, Brigitte Bardot and Caroline of Monaco, as well as collectors and friends to whom Raffaello dedicated his research. The portraits were not based on the physical appearance of people, but on intimate personal data related to environmental values.
Raffaello Somazzi’s work is built on historical foundations and attempts to provide visual poetry through his intimate relationship with colour.
Mr.William Haandrikman, General Manager of Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, said, “S Gallery is the only art gallery in a 5-star Bangkok hotel. Inspired by French art and design as part of the Sofitel’s four pillars philosophy, the high profile exhibition space helps emerging and established Thai and European artists reach an appreciative audience here in Thailand. Raffaello Somazzi’s vibrant exhibition of Cosmic Portraits is an intriguing collection of images that reflect a deeply personal response to life. We are delighted to be able to display his work at S Gallery.”
Raffaello Somazzi’s creative work will be on show until 6th April, 2016.
Personal data collected varies from person to person according to the social environment, family, relationship with nature and the ethereal enveloping our globe, the solar system and planetary zodiac, as well as the cosmic immensity that surrounds each of us consciously and unconsciously. The reality of these “Inter relations” starts with the first moments of our presence on earth.
