Fiat's flagship dealer, Fiat Marylebone, has proved once again its suitability for hosting art exhibitions, with a breath-taking display of paintings from an artist aged just six years old.
The Wigmore Street, London showroom was chosen this week to host a new series of works from Sebastiano Ludovico, whose seventh birthday is not until August. The young London-based talent has already attracted the interest of Hollywood film stars and British pop musicians with his incredible sense of colour, an instinctive creative maturity and a natural fantasy.
Among the paintings displayed at the 'Fiat through the eyes of a child' exhibition were some inspired by past and present Fiat cars, while others included fusions of paint with model cars, gauze, wood, steel and even CDs.
Fiat Marylebone was designed with art exhibitions and fashion shows in mind, as well as the ability to display a wide range of Fiat and Abarth cars, and has proved the perfect venue for stylish receptions such as last week's (17th June 2010) event.
The glittering occasion attracted more than 100 guests from the business and art worlds, while American soul singer Kym Mazelle, British TV actress Angela Griffin, operatic tenor Andrew Amdur and former TV 'Apprentice' Raef Bjayou were also present.
"We have once again hosted an important exhibition at Fiat Marylebone, and I'm delighted the showroom now has such a good reputation for these types of events," says Tony Dittli, managing director, Fiat Marylebone. "We were again able to combine an art exhibition with our unique showroom environment, featuring Fiat and Abarth cars.
"Sebastiano Ludovico is a remarkable talent within the art world and I, like so many of our guests at this event, was completely amazed by his work - an incredible achievement from one so young."Published 22 June 2010
