Art Tentation – Oktopus
Art Tentation VIP opening night, September 3rd
Oktopus launched its first art and antique fair at the magical XVI century castle of Villefranche. The crowds were enchanted by the softly lit setting for the after hours opening night celebration. The art was displayed in tents within the castle’s walls, on cobbled roads, next to beautiful trees. From emerging artists, to masters including Picasso, and Antiques galore, there were wonders everywhere to marvel.
Champagne, light fare, and thousands of patrons to mingle with, created a dreamlike setting for this evening to remember. The acclaimed French artists Titouan Lamazou, with his fabulous portraiture, and Patrick Moya, with his surreal paintings, drew many admirers. More then just contemporary art featuring 120 artists, there were carpets, exotic artifacts and even vintage clothing in the show. The stands dotted the roads like little neighborhoods to visit as you strolled along the streets. Wouldn’t it be lovely if all evenings could be this charming?
