Like fragments of a childhood memory that is being reconstructed…
Yesterday evening guests came in great numbers to the opening of talented Swedish artist Fabian Edelstam’s exhibition at the Club of Foreign Residents in Monaco. After his successful show in St. Tropez this summer entitled “The Cold War Kids”, Edelstam returned to Monaco for a 4th exhibition of his latest works that can be viewed until October 23. The event was organized under the patronage of Her Excellence Ambassador of Sweden Madame Veronika Wand-Danielsson and sponsored by Abts & Partners.
Fabian Edelstam was born in Stockholm Sweden and has been living and working in Paris since the early 90’s. He is very well versed in history and politics and I consider him to be a true Renaissance man. We could say he is a storyteller but instead of a pen he uses a brush. To me Edelstam’s works resemble a puzzle, where he says “some pieces are missing, others are in disorder, just like fragments of a childhood memory that is being reconstructed…” We travel back in time in regarding his portraits of recognized icons that marked an era, bringing them to our present.
Edelstam’s works are in different private collections throughout Europe and the USA, including that of Ralph Lauren, NATO, the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Royal Collections of Sweden, Memorial Charles de Gaulle and others.
