Swiss Art Gate UAE together with Emirates Palace and the German photographer, Andreas Denstorf present Flamboyant Impressions, a photo exhibition of new works at Mezzaluna restaurant…
Andreas Denstorf is a master of photography who not only takes pictures, but also transforms each image into a pop-art style with flashy colors and inventive compositions. Andreas works with multiple levels – reflections, separations and overlaps – and he creates an exciting mood with each of his art works. The viewer can see variously transformed segments in many bright colours. Born in 1969, in Rees on the Rhine, Germany, Andreas loved photography already as a young man and his career allowed him to look at the world from different angles. As reported in Interior Design magazine in 2015, Andreas titles his work PLATUX, derived from the philosopher Plato and Lux, which means light. He uses a blend of materials, colours, dimensions and forms to create something visual for the viewer. Andreas’ artwork is similar to pop-art but he tries to go one step further by separating the picture into more colourful segments.
The multidimensional PLATUX Photo Art is based on special photographs that evoke numerous levels, colours and meanings. Artistic values include separations, reflections, overlays and bright shining colours full of light and energy. As the artist explains, PLATUX is a composite of the philosopher Plato and LUX, the Latin word for light. Behind all PLATUX artworks stands the photographer Andreas Denstorf. Michael Omumbwa, restaurant manager at Mezzaluna in Emirates Palace, notes that since 2009 Swiss Art Gate UAE has organised 14 exhibitions at the award winning restaurant, mostly with an Italian theme.
Venetian murals and motifs create the perfect ambiance for a truly Italian sensation of rich Mediterranean culinary delights. He believes that Denstorf’s delicious use of colour and texture in the works of art garnishing the walls forms a perfect pairing with the vibrant Italian cuisine created in Mezzaluna’s lively kitchen and feels honoured to be collaborating with Swiss Art Gate UAE on this exhibition. ✤
