ContiniArt UK presents David Begbie sculpture at Art Beirut 2017

Exhibiting Artists: David Begbie with new work, Fernando Botero, Omar Hassan, Desire Obtain Cherish and Helidon Xhixha

The 2017 edition of BEIRUT ART FAIR will offer an exceptional and innovative program that confirms Beirut’s role as one of today’s most vibrant centers of contemporary creation.
BEIRUT ART FAIR is the leading platform for the discovery of new artists, trends, galleries, institutions, and publications from the ME.NA.SA., thus representing a principal catalyst for artistic development of the region.
As Beirut is a bridge between East & West, the fair establishes and builds artistic links between diverse cultures, fostering collaboration between galleries with a demonstrated commitment to making discoveries.
In just a few years, BEIRUT ART FAIR has become an international artistic event that attracts an ever greater number of visitors to Lebanon: professionals and art lovers from the region and from around the world. We’ve decided to highlight this evolution by putting together a selection committee that reflects the support BEIRUT ART FAIR enjoys from the most important art collectors in the region, whom we’ve enlisted on the basis of their rich expertise, their intellectual curiosity, and the quality of their views on the regional art scene.

David Begbie sculpture and painting Art Beirut detail of David Begbie's sculpture of a hand

Since its creation in 2010, BEIRUT ART FAIR has served to both spotlight and reinforce a dynamic art market that today finds itself in full expansion, both in Lebanon and in the broader ME.NA.SA. region.
From 19 to 26 September 2017, BEIRUT ART WEEK opens public spaces and luxury boutiques of the capital to artistic expression.

Artstyle Magazine about David Begbie's exhibition Shadows of the Past London 2017
‘Shadows of the Past‘ is an exciting and very unusual collaboration for ‘London Art Week‘ combining artefacts from the past with contemporary sculpture. I will be making new sculpture for this joint exhibition inspired by renaissance ceramics, presented by Bazaart who will display my work together with Renaissance pottery at ContiniArtUK, New Bond Street. Camille Leprince and Justin Raccanello's choice is highly selective: quality, rarity, condition and the impact of each ceramic is attractive to a modern public, collectors, connoisseurs and museums as much as young clients who might have never explored early European ceramic art before.

‘The Real Face of Burns‘

Portrait in steel of poet Robert BurnsDavid Burns portrait and paintings
Flyer for art exhibition The Rea Face of Burns
21 Feb – 14 Jun 2015
Robert Burns Birthplace Museum
Ayr, Scotland

ARTRUIST in Edinburgh announces a new exhibition and I am happy to take part with sculpture BURNS, my portrait of the poet:

Robert Burns suspended portrait stainless steel
”Next February, in the wake of Hogmanay and a month of Burns suppers, when there is such a strong emphasis on tradition and the poetry of Burns, we aim to shift the focus. From February to June 2015, we will show an exhibition which explores his appearance. We all think we know what he looked like, primarily because of the ubiquitous Nasmyth portrait – and even the derivative Archibald Skirving portrait which was drawn well after Burns died. Less well publicised is the fact that Robert Burns himself believed that a miniature executed by Alexander Reid, an unknown local artist, offered the best likeness. We are very fortunate that, courtesy of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery where it is normally to be found, this work will be on display at the Museum for the duration of the exhibition. Also included in the show will be a life sized model of Burns’s head, reconstructed by forensic scientists from the University of Dundee.”

The sculpture fetched RMB 23,000 (approx. £2,300.00) and all funds will go towards helping children with birth defects have corrective surgery. I am very happy the sale of "PROTU" could fund 10 operations for correction of cleft palate.

Winter Pride Indoor Party at Tobacco Docks, London
London will be playing host to its first Winter Pride on 8 February 2014 - a new mid-Winter festival for gay London, Winter Pride (winterprideuk.com) at the capital’s Tobacco Dock (http://tobaccodocklondon.com/): a historic location between Tower Hill and Wapping that has now been transformed into a major exhibitions space.
Winter Pride will seek to bring together the biggest LGBT club brands and international DJs for a real winter warmer of a party, a fully enclosed, indoor event. It won’t just be about dancing and clubbing, though. The event will also boast a market and community area, and a highlight of the day will be the The Winter Pride UK Awards.

The first ever Winter Pride includes not only an art competition for emerging artists but a breathtaking exhibition of installation art and sculpture from a diverse group of international artists.I am happy to be invited showing NUUDIS and other mesh sculpture at the Awards room!

'REAL is me' 17-20 Jan 2013, Amsterdam

Image: ‘Sinuu’, 2012. A double sculpture, female front and male back torso, suspended, in black finished steel-mesh. Currently located at
Gallery Van Loon and Simons is showing my work.
Being an important centre of the avant-garde art in Northern Europe, Amsterdam has also another, much older and richer tradition – that of realism. Dutch painters were famous since Renaissance through the 18, 19 and 20 century. In the middle of the 20c., a movement called magic realism contributed with important figurative paintings depicting figurative scenes in a fantastic, mysterious scenery.
