‘Franchement Art’ 2nd edition

From 2-5 September 2011, the second edition of the contemporary art fair 'Franchement Art' takes place in the Citadelle of Villefranche sur Mer Renowned galeries and well-known contemporary artists show their paintings, sculptures, photographs and other artwork. Aquarellista Marina Kulik is one of the chosen artists. She will show her large size abstracts, big multicolour roses and  a preview on her 'Glam Women' portraits. "I participated in the first edition and I had a great time with the other artists, we had inspiring talks and of course tremendous fun... In the picture below (ripped from the official brochure) you can see me (middle, right), looking at the work of another participant. The number of visitors could have been higher and the organisation promised for the second edition to promote better and louder.  This year more galeries are exhibiting and the overall quality seems to be higher, the 'ballotage' being more strict. I got selected, phew! My stand will be next to that of my Dutch sculptor-friend Ineke Velsink. Our work looks great together and I look very much forward to showing it to the many international visitors. I expect to sell and get commissions for Glamorous Women Portraits" The entry to the Contemporary Art Fair 'Franchement Art' is free, more information on their website nb: if you are looking for painters (like me) go to 'Plasticiens'

“Petits Formats” 10 – 24 December

From 10 to 24 December, the yearly exhibition "Petits Formats" takes place in the Salle Saint-Esprit in Valbonne. A group of around 15 artists show their smaller work and sell it for very interesting prices: starting at 10€, the maximum is 250 €. Marina Kulik is one of the exhibiting artists. She will show poetic aquarelles, with high quality hand signed prints that can be used as exclusive Christmas cards.

"I am working on a series of "Christmas decorations" right now, it is great fun to do and I have really fallen in love with the concept of Xmas balls, they look so great, I may produce a couple of real ones. and definitely some big artistic handpainted beads for the Dutch jewelry brand Merrl that I design for. But I can't say for sure what I will end up with in December, I'll keep you posted. If you are interested in ordering a couple of cards, drop me an email via the contact page and I'll get back to you!"

Exhibition in Rumania

From 12 August to 28 August, 6 paintings of Marina Kulik will be exhibited in "Galeria de Artă ”Cupola” in Iasi, during "The International Annual Holotropic Art Symposium" of 2010. The work is made especially for this exhibition, the 12 international artists that were chosen to participate, created their art on the music of Rumanian composer Edi Apostu.

"Edi's music is intriguing, etheric and unsettling at the same time and playing it while designing made me use other forms and shapes. I also wanted to work in a less transparent, more defined way that required another material - so I stepped back from aquarelle and used a mix of oil, acrylics and felt pen. The colours are much brighter and the shapes much sharper and more intense. I made one big painting on six smaller canvases and then found that they were all works in their own right, that are all telling their own story. So I decided to show and sell them seperately and if one is sold, I'll make a new one in it's place that will change the "whole" of six. And I'll keep track of that with my camera, so in the years it will hopefully develop into something completely different. It was a great, inspiring project and I learned tremendously from it..."

After the exhibit in Rumania the work will move to Italy. More news about that later! For more information on the Holotropic Art Symposium visit

Creativity and humor will surprise the public, there will be stands where the artists are demonstrating - and you may be invited to join in. There is a very special wine stand, a fish "rayon" and much more... One of the 15 artists who present their work is Aquarellista Marina Kulik. She will present her Multicolour Roses, and the necklaces, bracelets and earrings she designed for Dutch jewelry brand "MERRL" in that same theme.

Artour in Villeneuve

Citadelle Villeneuve Loubet

On June 19th Marina Kulik exhibited her abstract aquarelles and demonstrated the noble art of aquarelle during  "ARTOUR" 2010 in the Citadelle of Villeneuve Loubet (property of the Marquis de Panisse)

The exhibition targeted the business people of Sophia Antipolis, the high-tech area of the Côte d'Azur, "our" Silicon Valley.

The participating artists had put up their artwork (paintings and sculptures) outside in the courtyard, the sun was shining and they were giving demonstrations and telling the interested visitors about their work...

And then it started to rain!
"Luckily there were lots of plastic, I could cover my precious aquarelles, they were not damaged - the demo's were very wet-in-wet from that moment onwards. An hour later the sun came back and stayed for the day. My work looked good in the evening sun with the shadows of the palmtrees!"
