Art lovers be spoilt

The Podium Lounge is thrilled to welcome Sundaram Tagore Gallery who will present Primary Source, an exhibition of work by famous contemporary artists from both Asia and the West who embrace traditional visual tropes and techniques rooted in their cultures as a primary source to create their own unique visual language.

The Podium Lounge also welcomes world famous speed painter Armin Flossdorf of F1 Arts, who will be performing live throughout the weekend. Having started off in Monaco, Armin’s first Formula One-Fanatic Location exhibition 10 years ago led him to specialize in Formula 1 Art using his eyecatching technique of combining acrylics and pencil on canvas. Armin has exhibited at the very highest levels of motorsport events around the world and counts F1 Supremo Bernie Ecclestone and FIA President Jean Todt among his collectors.

Armin will be joined by Paul Oz, an explosive portrait artist from the UK focused on the maximum 3D impact and energy in thick oil paint. Paul has created work personally for Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton, Sir Jackie Stewart, Bruno Mars to mark his 24k Magic Tour, Muhammad Ali’s 70th, and for Sir Brad Wiggins to celebrate his 2012 Olympic victory.
