Before you head to Bruno Gallery to view Arnaud and Adeline Nazare-Aga’s newest collections, here are a few fun facts about the couple who are on a mission to spread happiness with their work.
1. Where It All Began
Modern sculpture and architecture has been Arnaud Nazare-Aga’s passion since he frequented museums with his parents as young boy. Trained in plastering and moulding, Arnaud was educated in a Buddhist community in Burgundy, and his handiwork can be seen in the form of carved decorations at the Temple of a Thousand Buddhas near Autun, France, the largest Buddhist temple in the Western world.
2. It’s All About Teamwork
The 50-year-old artist works with his wife, Adeline Nazare-Aga to create the vibrant art sculptures he is known for. A self-trained graphics and colour artist, Adeline designs and draws on the final sculptures and models shaped by Arnaud. The pair sign off each piece with their signature, Artheline. With each colourful piece, they hope to spread joy, positivity and happiness to those around them.
3. Setting Up Their Own Space
Upon moving to Bangkok, the artistic duo set up their own studio in the booming Thai capital called Atelier PAJ’Art. The 1,000-square-metre space is designed for the production of painted sculptures in resin. PAJ’Art also houses a gallery within its interiors.
4. Bringing Classics to Life
Arnaud recently collaborated with Voilah! The French Festival for The Little Prince exhibitions in May 2015, where the sculptor recreated characters and scenes from Antoine de Saint- Exupéry’s popular book. 13 white-coloured sculptures were showcased in an interactive The Little Prince in the Dark exhibition, where visitors could experience each piece through their sense of touch, accompanied by audio versions of the book playing overhead.
5. What’s Next?
Their newest works, the Whale Pop and Goril’Pop collections, are currently on display at Bruno Gallery. Made from resin, reinforced with fiberglass, and protected with multiple layers of high gloss and anti-UV marine lacquer, the sculptures are made in limited quantities, and are numbered and inscribed with the Artheline signature. Each piece is also given a with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Bruno Gallery showcases art works from Israeli, American and European artists and presents exciting opportunities for collectors. The gallery belongs to the Bruno Art Group, which owns galleries in Israel, USA and Turks & Caicos.
