Fiumano Fine Art is proud to present ‘The Trip to Italy’, an exhibition of paintings by Euan Macleod and Steve Lopes. These two acclaimed artists and good friends have a tough assignment: drive through beautiful countryside, eat lavishly, stay in exquisite small hotels, and paint along the incomparable coastline and in the historic hill towns of Northern Italy. Their next task: head to London and immediately show the results of their trip – an almost pop-up-style exhibition replicating several other on-the-fly shows the pair has put together in recent years.
Known for their edgy painting styles, their latest works are an exciting take on the country we all fall in love with. These two inveterate painter-travellers will amble through paradise – with Italian–Australian Lopes as guide and translator – in a continuation of their series of plein air painting trips around the world. They start their journey on the Ligurian coast, moving down through Tuscany, to Rome and then Naples, producing a stunning array of landscapes and figurative works on the spot.
Both artists have works in the Australian National Gallery and in public collections around the world. Both have also exhibited in London to high acclaim. Macleod is an award-winning artist, credited with recent sell-out shows in Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand. Lopes’s successful painting career includes a long UK association, as he has regularly exhibited here since living and studying in London in the 1990s.
Now is your chance to see Italy through the eyes of these two well-travelled painters, but don’t expect a beach-and-mountain travelogue. Their investigation of the hidden gems of Northern Italy, backstreet Rome and Naples will be hosted by Fiumano Fine Art in London’s West End.
Euan Macleod & Steve Lopes– The Trip to Italy will open at the Framers Gallery in Fitzrovia on 29 September.
