Port Adriano, August 12th
On Wednesday afternoon (August 11th) we celebrated the exhibition and auction of the photography series “la mar de helados” by the artist Nando Esteva. The Mallorcan artist, that took inspiration for his collection by merging a selection of ice-cream with marine items, presented his creations yesterday in the port art gallery Ahoy!
The images represent marine symbols such as an anchor, a buoy, a nautical chart mixed with various types of ice creams. These spectacular illustrations are the result of a great deal of work by Nando Esteva who describes this project as his most transgressive.
The auction of the images, in a 100 x 70 cm format, raised a total of 3.400€. This amount has been sent to the association Aspanob (children with cancer in the Balearics), wchis is dedicated to improving the quality of life of all the children affected with this illness and their families.
The auction was a great success and underlined the caring values of Port Adriano towards this good cause.
For all those that have not yet had the opportunity to enjoy the collection, Port Adriano has exposed in the outer break wall a large-scale reproduction of the image collection in the Philippe stack designed frames.
Nando Esteva (Palma de Mallorca, 1979) is a photographer with extensive experience in advertising: specialising in gastronomy, the hospitality sector, architecture and industrial goods.
In the last few years, his advertising photography work and his personal art projects have received awards at the LUX, IPA, One Eyeland, Florence-Shanghai, Px3 Paris and Hasselblad Master Awards competitions.
His works are transgressive and very original, distinguished by their definition and expression.
