Check back here regularly to find out what's going on at LLunio: Papier Mache Creations.
Luciano Benetton - creator of the Benetton Group - is a great traveller and art lover. He has combined these two passions iin his Imago Mundi project: a contemporary art collection composed of thousands of 10x12cm works by established and emerging artists from many different countries. I am proud that my papier mache sculpture 'When Coal Was King' has joined the work of 139 other Welsh artists to make up the Welsh Collection : 'So many different suns'.
The Welsh Collection will be taken - with the other numerous collections from around the world - on a tour to the widest possible number of people via a web platform, catalogues and exhibitions in collaborations with private institutions, international organisations and public museums.
Hosted by the Fondazione Benetton, the project will continue to grow with the goal of uniting the diversities of this world and passing on to future generations the widest possible mapping of human cultures.
The entire collection, including The Welsh Collection, can be viewed at www.imagomundiart.com
Selected pieces from The Welsh Collection (including mine!) can also be viewed at www.bestofbritishart.co.uk
As some of you will know, I began my obsession with papier mache thanks to the work and tutorials of the truly inspirational papier mache artist Jonni Good. I am delighted to have been invited by her to contribute a guest tutorial on her blog and will post more information here as soon as I've finished working on it.
In the meantime, to view Jonni's website, tutorials and blog go to www.ultimatepapermache.com Really worth a visit!
