Piazza San Marco
The beauty of Venice is timeless. And it’s never been more certain, thanks to Andres Leroi’s newest work dedicated to the lagoon city. For this work he skillfully assembled an 18th century historical representation and a 21st century photo together under the blue-white sky of Venice, creating a magically unique experience. At first glance, it may simply appear as a familiar motif, St. Mark's Square. But upon closer inspection the harmoniously blended, yet contrasting pictorial elements reveal themselves. Leroi's creation is a unique journey through time, fascinating and curious at the all at once.
New York is the city that never sleeps, yet it always keeps us dreaming. This remarkable metropolis and its five world-famous districts awaken our desires and stimulates our imagination. Andrés Leroi takes the myth of the city and transforms it into a fascinating ensemble of movement, light, and forms. This sleek Cut-Out simultaneously portrays the essence of the extraordinary cosmopolitan city and its dynamic diversity by shaping a concrete form to the dream that is New York.
In his collages the artist and graphic artist, Andrés Leroi, captures the spirit of celebrated major cities. He disassembles existing realities and then reconstructs them to create works of art that amplify the character of metropoles. His New York cut-out thus becomes a condensed version of the dynamic, constantly active megacity, in which the viewer finds his vision of an urban composition full of skyscrapers, avenues, and flashing lights.
At first sight you might be overwhelmed by this work's vibrancy. Then, as you approach it, you recognize Leroi's art - a series of images have been cleverly merged to create an overwhelming and surprising entity, which lets the true essence of the city unfold.
Andres Leroi was born in Hamburg. He has been travelling the world as a photographer for 20 years, ever in search of special, extraordinary motifs and moments. While working as a creative director he has collaborated with many other renowned photo artists.
