This year marks the 25th Anniversary of jewellery designer Stefano Canturi’s work with the unveiling of his first exhibition of drawings, paintings and small scale sculpture.
Journey offers a rare insight into the world and mind of Stefano Canturi through the presentation of ten jewellery concepts from a body of work spanning over 25 years.
“This exhibition is a journey and not a traditional art exhibition. Works are frozen moments in time from the point of inspiration, to birth of creation, to the finished piece” he explains.
Until now, all his behind-the-scenes works have been kept private. Art works featured in Journey include never before seen drawings and paintings of his masterpiece ‘Satine’ created for Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge, the necklace that featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most valuable piece of jewellery ever created for film.
Also captured is the creation process behind Canturi’s revered Cubism collection, in which he explores abstract and non-traditional styles with his arrangement of geometric lines in curved patterns.
