Tribute to Chopin

'Tributo a Chopin' 80 x 36 Oil on Canvass ©Camargo Vilardy, 2009. Photo courtesey of Angela Bustamonte (c) 2009

Today’s posting embodies a grand fusion of the 19th century music of Fryderyk Chopin and the visual expression of twenty-first century Colombian sculptor and painter, Carlos Camargo Vilardy, whose love for Chopin’s music provided enormous impulse for the enterprise.

The creation of the painting presented here in video format occupied ten days in Tampa, Florida, where Vilardy and his son, Barranquilla filmmaker Felipe Camargo were immersed in the music, the painting and the experience.

    Beautiful. I will give you constructive feedback when I have it but I don’t in this case. I love it!

    What about the idea of offering the painting in poster form and giclee form to those who might be interested. The proceeds can go to all involved. The original is available also but I want to make sure that it is to the right person or institution and that the proceeds are fairly distributed.
