The installation show ‘Blue Taxi to Paradise’

Firouz Farman FarmaianThe Nando Argüelles Art Projects Presents Firouz Farman-Farmaian‘s first exclusive installation show ‘Blue Taxi To Paradise’ in its Sotogrande Blue Marina Gallery. It is a Chromoclast approach to the color Blue, traveling through Canvas, Stone, Metal, Print and Video. It is staged as an installation favoring confrontations between mediums and dimensions, embedding it to an ongoing rapport-action-reaction to the vibrancy of solar light, the force of the four natural elements and the artist’s idea of sub-cultural post-industrial architectonics.

S’Hotelet de Santanyí

If you’re looking for an intimate escape in a luxury hotel with great taste, charm and style, this is the one for you ! S’hotelet de Santanyí is a small boutique hotel in Mallorca, located in the charming village of Santanyí.

Outdoor chimneys !

I am completely in love with this line of  copper chimneys. They will give your garden/ chill out area such warmth and ambiance during the summer nights. To choose the right chimney for your home, simply pick a style and a size that works with architecture of your home and your surroundings. Let the long and endless summer nights begin !

Have a look at this amazing line !

The newest interior project !

Here you can follow the latest project by TheMarigold! We are redoing the restaurant Casa Chez Papou in Tarifa, Spain. The restaurant clearly had an image problem from the start and the interior didn’t attract much people because of its dark walls and furniture.

The idea was to give it a new and more attractive touch, to brighten everything up on the inside and to have a more visible facade. We chose to do this by bringing in some eclectic  modern art and by painting all the furniture inside and outside in white (mixed with sand from the beach for a more rough and used touch). Firouz Farman-Farmaian then did some of his famous dripping in orange and red on each table and we covered the grey walls with a vibrant painting in 6 pieces to finalize the new artistic image of the restaurant.

On the tables you now find painted African pumpkins as candle holders and above the bar an old surfboard that Firouz has painted in the same color scheme.

The place is today an arty spot in Tarifa, famous for its original decor and its chicken dishes so do pop in for a bite and some of Papou’s famous cocktails if you happen to be in South of Spain !

Firouz Farman-Farmaian Exhibit & Residency 2014

Firouz Farman-Farmaian is showing 13 pieces in collaboration with the hotel Posada La Sacristia in Tarifa, Spain. For this show the artist was inspired by the elements of nature and more specifically by the 2 winds in Tarifa; the levante and the poniente. It’s a striking serie with vibrant colors conveying a message of depth and emotion. Taking a closer look at the pieces you will see the powerful interaction of energy and nature that the artists is so known for.
