About the Artwork:
"Riviera Rhapsody" is born from the visceral tapestry of the Côte d'Azur's endless azure skies and seas. This painting is a passionate ode to the rhythmic waves and the serene vastness that defines the Riviera. As an artist, I found myself completely immersed in the dynamic yet harmonious essence of this coastal paradise.
The vibrant blues and tranquil turquoises that dominate the canvas are reflective of the deep emotional connection I feel with the Mediterranean's spirit. The energetic splashes and drips are reminiscent of the sparkling water as it dances under the sun, and the deep textures echo the depth and mysteries of the sea.
Creating this piece was an intimate journey, a rhapsody of colors and emotions, much like the ebullient tunes of a coastal symphony. It encapsulates the movement, the melody, and the mood of the Riviera—a place where nature’s rhythms are felt in one’s soul, and every view is a poem without words."
– Andrew Manaylo
The painting was created with oil paints on a uniquely textured composite aluminum panel.
Thanks to the use of spacers, the artwork “floats” on the wall in an aura of beautiful light, made possible by the app-controlled LED backlighting.
“Andrew Manaylo, an acclaimed artist in the contemporary art scene, has evolved his painting style, beautifully blending the realism of life with abstract art, resulting in breathtaking artwork that resonates deeply with art enthusiasts and interior designers alike. His "Côte d'Azur" series, inspired by the French-Italian Riviera, marries the vibrant hues of the locale with his emotionally rich palette, creating an abstract interpretation of the region that leaps off the canvas with vitality and spontaneity, akin to a heart-thumping adventure novel. Over time, Manaylo has transitioned from painting traditional representations of beauty to creating more fluid and evocative abstract expressions of his personal experiences and emotions. His paintings, often described as sensual and impulsive, are crafted on aluminum panels without frames, like floating worlds radiating life and inviting viewers into their universe. His fine art masterpieces, a visual feast for lovers of art for sale, have found pride of place in galleries from Nice to Monaco, coveted by collectors who appreciate his talent for capturing emotion, drama, and catharsis. Manaylo's dynamic painting style, featuring a spontaneous dance of brush, hand, and paint, is his distinctive signature, resulting in abstract compositions that are as enticing as a well-crafted Italian cappuccino. His art stands testament to his belief that artwork should spark thoughts and emotions, making viewers integral to the creative process, thereby transforming the very essence of paintings for sale into an immersive, shared experience.”
