27 Sep Fortune Favours bring Lillie Bernie to UAE
Founded by British entrepreneur and art connoisseur, Louis Wright, Fortune Favours Art offers the UAE market unprecedented access to some of the world’s best-known contemporary artists and will also provide a global platform for local Arabic artists to showcase their work to international collectors.
Following Fortune Favours Art’s signing of Bernie and Schoony, an original piece by each artist is available exclusively to UAE customers via the website. Also exclusive to the art house’s customers are limited edition Bernie and Schoony prints, with only 50 prints from each artist available for purchase. Ten original Schoony sculptures, in sizes and colours never before produced, can also be bought exclusively on the site.
In addition to the artists’ own works, Bernie and Schoony have joined forces to create an exclusive collaborative sculpture commissioned by Fortune Favours Art. Of the collaboration, Wright said: “I’m thrilled to have brought these two incredibly talented artists together and it’s so exciting to be able to offer this one-of-a-kind piece to the UAE market. I have followed the careers of Lillie and Schoony for a long time and it’s such an honour to bring their work to the Middle East.”
Bernie is an upcoming, London-based, abstract artist, inspired by human interactions and emotions and challenging personal experiences. She interprets her subject matter through the use of bold colours and textures. Of Bernie, Wright said: “Lillie is one of the most exciting emerging contemporary artists to come out of the UK.”
At the age of 14, Bernie began her career as a fashion model and went on to graduate from university with a degree in broadcast journalism. She soon realised her true passion was painting and photography. Bernie’s abstract style of painting is inspired by, in her own words, ‘thinking about something greater than one’s self’.
