ZeeArts Community organized its first event (Live painting) in Mauritius, by bringing Mauritian artists to paint together on Saturday 3rd October at La Maison Eureka in Moka.
This initiative is to provide opportunity for the emerging and leading artists to network, exchange and strengthen their artistic relationship under the theme Diversity and Connectivity. The theme was inspire to pay tribute to Mauritius; and to highlight how Arts can beautifully embrace and enhance the power of our iconic island in all its splendor.
The wonderful setting at Eureka has without any doubt inspired the artists, with the green landscape, ‘La Maison Colonial’ and the freshness of the picturesque and historical venue sponsor. It was such a beautiful day where we enjoy the different style, techniques and medium.
Art is an international language understand by all, this is exactly what Mauritian artists strive to show in their work, the passion, freedom, a sense of ownership where the canvas is their territory. This initiative was done in collaboration of Ms Sevany Appavoo, an artist activist, a passionate art lover and a photographer. ‘Her aim is to valorizing all artists and their artworks at national and international level and give them this Majestic place they all deserve in Society’. Credit for all photos goes to Ms Sevany Appavoo.
I would like to extend our deep appreciation to Eureka, la Maison Creole for their hospitality to welcome the artists for this live painting. I would highlight the presence of the new Chairperson of National Art Gallery Mrs Dorinne Denise who addressed her first speech to the artists and extending her full support and will bring innovation to the National Art Gallery
