“When Fashion becomes Art” by Stephane Koerwyn
On the occasion Festival des Dîners Extraordinaires, discover in the library as well as in the lounge of the Sofitel Lisbon Liberdade the works of Stephane Koerwyn, French painter and sculptor.
In Lisbon, it is in the heart of the Avenida da Liberdade, that the artist has chosen to exhibit his metallic creations. Stephane Koerwyn dares to combine fashion, metallic materials and painting superposition.
The dress, its movement and its light meet and converge to become a complete work, a perfect balance between abstraction and figuration. Creations that come alive during real fashion shows.
After 20 years of experience in management positions in multinational companies, Stephane Koerwyn seeks to reconnect with artistic creation.
He decided to try something totally different and enrolled in painting classes at the Beaux Arts in Paris and at the Louvre School. He became a versatile artist, both painter and sculptor.
His paintings are ephemeral expressions in an abstract style that goes beyond the realm of material. His works question the notion of image, its effects and its evocative power.
