ART OF DITA at Playboy Club London – Celebrating Creative Freedom!

Dita Omuri

Dita Omuri

“SENSUAL, SOPHISTICATED AND CLASSY PAINTINGS WITH A TOUCH OF GLAMOUR”  

DITA OMURI AT PLAYBOY CLUB LONDON

26TH MARCH 2015 – 3RD MAY 2015

Dita Omuri, born and raised in northern Albania, escaped her home country running towards the unknown and away from the restricted ways of expressing her emotions through art.

From a very young age, Dita’s sketchbook was her constant companion. By winning a young art competition she secured a scholarship at a traditional Art school aged 14. Learning the “Old Masters Techniques” and becoming aware that the only legal art form in Albania was Social Realism. Her passion for art, freedom and creativity was stifled in Albania.

In 1998 as a single mum, Dita embarked on a journey to the UK in search of a new life for herself and her son. She had so little to lose and so much to gain. Working through a tough few years and her Albanian Art Diploma’s not being recognised she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in the UK whilst working hard providing support for her son, and continuing on painting and exploring the freedom of creativity.

“Today my art is the priority of my life, an expression of my passions and personality. A love of fashion, photography and figurative art are strong influences on my work.” says Dita.

“Sensual, sophisticated and classy paintings with a touch of glamour” – adds Curator, Entrepreneur and award-winning business woman Joelle Dinnage.

Joelle, owner of the InVogue Art Gallery and founder of the Global Art Agency Ltd met Dita at the Oxford International Art Fair where Dita was selected to exhibit her artworks and was one of the bestselling artists there. “Her art stood out” Joelle said and continued “Not only that, also her personality and good spirit reflected in the artworks – the positive energy bounced of it. I was determinate to make Dita a success.”

Dita has since been exhibiting alongside famous names in the art world and has become an international artist, selling through galleries all over the world. And to celebrate the absolute creative freedom, Dita has now got her 6-week solo-exhibiting in London Mayfair represented by the InVogue Art Gallery. at the exclusive Playboy Club London.

The exhibition is open to the public from 26th March to 3rd May 2015.

First international Artist Art Fair in Tokyo

TOKYO_ART_FAIR_HIRESTokyo International Art Fair 22-23 May 2015 by Global Art Agency – Quest Hall Harajuku

THE CITY OF TOKYO is playing host to hundreds of talented artists from all around the world when it stages the first Tokyo International Art Fairby Global Art Agency from 22nd to 23rd May 2015.

More than 150 artists from over 30 countries will be filling the prime located Quest Hall – Harajuku with an incredible display of art, with more pieces than ever before gathered under one roof for visitors to admire and to buy in the city’s largest Artist showcase of modern and contemporary art.

Following the agency’s successful events in Oxford, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Vienna, and Barcelona it’s now the turn for Tokyo to host the magnificent art fair. Organisers Joelle Dinnage and her business partner Natal Vallvé from the Global Art Agency are making the fantastic (free) two-day art extravaganza a versatile art happening for the locals of Tokyo. A huge variety of artworks, offering every visitor something to suit their style, all in an affordable price-range to buy and to take home on the day. On show will be paintings, sculptures, photography art, illustrations, printmaking, and bespoke crafts, with a live painting and music show at the event.

Art1TOKYO International Art Fair is the first commercial fair of Japan to establish an international network for Collectors to connect and engage with the Artists directly – commission free. With talented exhibitors coming from all over Europe, Russia, US, Australia, and also a selection of local artists.

“The idea for the Tokyo Art Fair started about 3,5 years ago at the Amsterdam Art Fair that Global Art Agency organised. Art collectors from Tokyo visited the Amsterdam event and they bought a range of artworks to sell back in Japan… Without having to say anything to my business partner Natal – we thought the same. And so the research started back then. We quickly found out that there is no such thing in Tokyo for artists to sell directly – commission free, and at the same time found out that the public are very keen on the prospects of having a commercial fair in their city to buy original artworks by international artists that are of an affordable price range. As this will be the first ever artist art fair in Tokyo, we have big expectations and high hopes for yet another successful event for our agency, and ultimately have the Tokyo art fair also annually.” says Joelle Dinnage.

Art7The fair starts in style on the Friday night, 22nd May 2015, with a special private view and champagne reception with tickets costing only 1500 YEN each for an exclusive sneak preview of the treasures that are to come over the weekend.

PicCAn awesome show at Ricco/Maresca in NYC: “Post-war America saw the rise of the erotic pulp paperback novel covers. The objective of these covers was to lure in potential buyers with the promise of sex, suspense and drama. Simultaneously, a similar type of book and marketing strategy was being developed in Mexico.”
