This weekend (March 24-27, 2022) Vertu Fine Art is taking part in the Palm Beach Contemporary + Modern Art Show. Part of Art Miami, the show takes place at the Palm Beach Convention Center.
The VFA gallery is focused, as always, on Fine Art Prints by many of our favorite artists.
Harland Miller-b. 1964
Harland Miller is not only a wonderful artist. He is also a writer, traveler and educator.
In the 1980s and ’90s, Miller lived and worked in Berlin, New York and New Orleans. In 2002, he was Writer in Residence at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, and created events to celebrate Edgar Allen Poe.
He began his Penguin book cover series while painting in Paris. Homesick for England, and English, Miller bought some used Penguin and Pelican books and turned them into sardonic works of art.
On March 5, a Harland Miller painting, Amour, Amour, More Amour, 2021, sold at the amFar Gala in Palm Beach for $500,000. All of the proceeds from the gala go to HIV/Aids research.
Bjorn Persson-b. 1972
Photographer Bjorn Persson has dedicated his life to saving endangered wildlife in Africa. As head of the non-profit Smart Savannahs, he has partnered with scientists at Linköping University in Sweden to bring high tech tools to rangers in Kenya to help them stop the poaching that endangers the wildlife.
Persson lives and works in Stockholm and travels extensively to take photos of the animals that have stolen his heart. He creates his photos to show the beauty of the wildlife, to get people to appreciate how magnificent they are…and why they are worth saving.
Bjorn Persson is represented by VFA in Florida.
Harland Miller and Bjorn Persson are just two of the fine artists whose works will be on display at the Palm Beach Contemporary and Modern Art Show at the Palm Beach Convention Center. The show runs from March 24 through March 27, 2022.
You can download a free copy of our ebook: How to Identify and Buy Fine Art Prints. We published the book to share our appreciation of the craftsmanship, quality and diversity of the art form.
