Italian Art Gallery, Oblong Contemporary, has launched an online virtual gallery tour for its space on Blue Waters Island. Using the latest technology for video graphics and techniques, the gallery is showcasing all of its artwork in unmatched quality.
“Being an Italian and having a corresponding branch in Forte de Marmi, Tuscany, where Oblong started, the fight against COVID-19 is something very close to my heart,” says Paola Marucci, Founding Partner of Oblong Contemporary Art Gallery. “We have set-up our Dubai branch virtually so art lovers can continue to enjoy our conceptual art and sculptures, no matter the scenario. It is important that whilst we fight the virus in every way possible, we also try and prevent it from stopping our lives and love for art.”
The virtual tour of Oblong Contemporary will allow users to experience a spread of greatly talented artists’ work, all from different disciplines and backgrounds.
Artists include, Colombian minimalistic marble sculptor, Gustavo Velez, hyper-realistic photography painter, Enrico Ghinato, conceptual animal sculptor Stefano Bombardieri, leading Latin American painter, Julio Larraz and classical sculptor, Igor Mitoraj, who echoed old Roman and Greek cultures with a post-modern twist.
Emanuela Venturini, Founding Partner of Oblong Contemporary Art Gallery is certain the virtual tour will benefit the gallery’s Dubai space and provide a platform for partons to view international artists from the comfort of their homes. “The idea of such a mixture of beautiful works by such talented artists, sitting in a space which is not accessible is very saddening. Thankfully we don’t have to worry about that anymore!”
Throughout the virtual tour, viewers can freely roam the gallery and zoom in for a closer look at more than 50 masterpieces. Each artwork is paired with information on the artist, the composition of the piece, and dimensions.
