2019 was a year of amazement with art exhibitions around the world and new collections wowing international audiences. Here is our year in review!
In an artistic endeavor never before attempted, Alec Monopoly showed off his skills by painting live atop a floating sculpture in Mykonos! This year Alec Monopoly traversed the world with art exhibitions in major cities everywhere, sharing his latest creations in graffiti paintings and innovative sculptures, from Mykonos to Miami, he did it all! But nothing compared to the opening act at $PF Monopoly, an exhibition that transformed Eden Fine Art and all of Psarou Beach into a Mykonos-worthy club! Monopoly arrived at the party on a helicopter that he had painted himself earlier in the day. Then, as spectators gathered on the beach, Monopoly live-painted the largest floating sculpture that the Greek Islands has ever seen! Learn more about this spectacular undertaking here!
Eden Fine Art brought a taste of Italy to SoHo, New York City with Angelo Accardi’s latest collection inspired by his homeland. Influenced by classical Italian styles and culture, he continuously references icons of fine art, while juxtaposing imagery from pop culture, creating a familiar yet dreamlike ambiance. This surrealistic universe of Accardi’s art got given a new lease of life, as the gallery space was transformed into a whimsical world, inhabited by a mix of characters from his paintings and adoring art enthusiasts. This culminated in the creation of a life-size painting where guests had an opportunity to be photographed alongside the artist and his imagined characters. Read about it here!
Did you know that there are 171,476 words in current use in the English language (and 47,156 obsolete words)? David Kracov’s newest collection uses all sorts of provocative slang and jargon to express anger, passion, and excitement. Art that literally speaks to the viewer. Using bright colors, bold euphemisms, and naturally suggestive words Kracov expresses more than just his creativity in Comic Explosion. The artist shares his satirical take on the world and how art fits into it. Explore David Kracovs newest collection here.
F&G introduced Pitchou this year. Their latest sculpture inspired by a cute term of endearment in French was made monumental and spread across the island of Mykonos. To kick-off, this epic endeavor Eden Fine Art threw a day-time extravaganza where the artist painted mini-sculptures alongside their mini-fans, in an art event for all ages. ‘Smells Like Toon Spirit,’ allowed art aficionados to introduce their children to the world of fine art, as they admired the latest works of F&G under the gleaming Mykonos sun in an embodiment of the light and playful spirit of the new collection itself.

SN introduced his newest collection, ‘Summer Love,’ to international audiences with his inspirational art exhibition in Mykonos! SN’s unique work takes inspiration from the fashion world and often depicts well-known celebrities, such as Kate Moss, that embody our modern ideals of aesthetic beauty. Combining a mixture of mediums, he embellishes his art with striking, neon butterflies and angel wings, pushing further the godly status these figures inhabit and transporting us into SN’s fantastical experience. He merges themes of the natural world with human concepts of perfection, highlighting the different ways of perceiving sublimity. View his latest works here!
This year started off in celebration of two exemplary artists. Dorit Levinstein and Yoel Benharrouche showcased this year’s new collections in Eden Fine Art Gallery in London. The exhibition allowed both artists to explore themes of Eden both present and past. The event saw the gallery space morph into an exciting labyrinth of plants, sculptures, and natural imagery.
Yoel Benharrouche’s abstractions and calming earthy tones perfectly captivate the spirit of Eden and the interior decor of the exhibition. His collection emitted a peaceful air that charmed the audience. You can learn more about the Garden of Eden here!
Inspired by her childhood home near the desert, Dorit Levinstein masterminded another beautifully bright collection, but this time depicting the resilient cactus. Levinstein pays homage to her passion for fauna through her signature use of patterns enveloping a twisting, continuous line to create her unique sculptures. The artists’ succulent garden is inspired by the plant that endures that harshest conditions, a resilience that is relatable to many audiences. Explore Levinstein’s new artworks here.
Throughout 2019 Eden Fine Art has delivered stimulating and imaginative events that have consistently pushed the boundaries of conventional exhibitions, and allowed for guests to entirely immerse themselves in the art. Exploring a number of themes and utilizing different executions, all of Eden’s artists have a unique charm. However, they also take joy in the art of pleasing a crowd. From curious carnivals to biblical utopias, the havens of creativity displayed at the galleries have excited viewers and artists alike. Leaving a lasting memory, the events of 2019 left art lovers eager to find out what’s in store for 2020!
