Don’t forget to visit Galerie Dumonteil‘s stand at PAD Monaco 2019. Be prepared to be charmed by its extraordinary modern and contemporary sculptures. This remarkable art gallery is known for supporting and nurturing talented contemporary sculptors, such as Daniel Daviau, Mia Fonssagrives Solow, Hubert Le Gall and Sophia Vari.
Born in Sarlat in 1962, Daniel Daviau lives and works in Paris. He grew up in the heart of Périgord where he spent his childhood surrounded by nature and cultivated his love for animals. He studied sculpture and worked with wood, but he later decided that bronze would be his chosen material to spread his own unique artistic message. He started by representing endangered species. Nowadays, he portrays all animals, from the humblest to the proudest, to capture them, freezing them in time and gifting them with eternal life.
Mia Fonssagrives Solow is an American artist and designer based in New York. She is internationally well-known for her signature bold aesthetic in both figurative and abstract forms. As the daughter of renowned photographer Fernand Fonssagrives and iconic super model Lisa Fonssagrives, as well as the step-daughter of fashion photographer Irving Penn, Mia was born into and shaped by a world of art and design. She continues to build upon this legacy as a celebrated sculptor, painter and designer of fine jewelry. Fonssagrives Solow already showcased her art pieces in the U.S. and Paris and was featured in the pages of many notorious publications, such as Artnet, Artsy, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Departures, and Harper’s Bazaar.
Born in 1961, Hubert Le Gall is a French designer and sculptor. He creates poetic and functional furniture. Le Gall plays with shapes, light and colors, merging unusual ideas and working with several materials such as wood, glass, resin or ceramics. Bronze, however, remains his favorite material.
Sophia Vari was born in Greece in 1940 to a Greek father and Hungarian mother. Currently living and working in Monaco, Italy and Greece, she is married to a Colombian artist called Fernando Botero. Vari studied and lived overseas for many years. Even though the artist has spent some time of her life in Great Britain, Paris is where she became relevant to artistic movements in modern sculpture, specifically cubism and surrealism.
