Born in Santa Clara in Cuba in 1989, Luis E. Toledo‘ work opens a door to a dreamlike magical world, where he creates a parallel universe, a personal reflection of reality. The characters living there emerge from a personal unconscious state, converging in this esoteric world where they have conflicts, express their different ideas in their own language, have traditions and goals; all based on their individual essence. “Not satisfied by the world we live in, I create a surreal refuge that helps me face everyday life…For me, every piece is a representation of a living memory. I remove organic and physical presences from my world and transfer them into this magical place as a creative recourse”.

“Illuminada 2”. Gold 23 carats, silver, oil on wood panel, 20 x 24 in.

Luis believes that the influence received during childhood and throughout the years is relevant for one’s personal growth. As a child, he saw his father study the great artists from the Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque among others. At the same time, his imagination expanded seeing his mother giving life to characters from short stories and comic books. As an actress performing in children’s theaters, her ability to communicate through puppets and marionettes foster Luis’ need to find spaces beyond reality. His grandmother’s children’s stories also influenced him; in them, we often held the leading roles. The series “A dream within a dream” births these characters by connecting ideas from the artist’s imagination with their own thoughts and desires.

Atrapando un sueño“. Oil on canvas, 36×24 in.

“To Be or not to NFT?”

11 [HH] on a new crypto-challenge

11 [HH] is extremely pleased to announce its official debut on the NFTs market.

We chosed the artist Marco Guglielmi Reimmortal to make our entrance in Mintable. The tokenized works are “To Blue or not to be?” # 1 and # 2, dated 2020. This artworks belongs to the “WALLS” series, lying between sculpture and installation. Each Wall is a field of dynamic forces where the multiplication of points of view takes place, up to the denial of the sense of sight in the latest STARGATES.

The price is set in ETH, and the buyer will receive ownership not only of the NFT, but also of the physical asset underlying.
This is a significant step towards the future, which sees the demarcation between physical and digital gradually thinning in terms of ownership and enjoyment of an asset, blurring the lines between “real” world and virtual world.

True to our long-standing vocation, we are proud of pioneering the change.

Discover our NFTs.

AUTO PORTRAIT

A lifelong lover of the image, Dominique got her first camera when he was 15 years old. He became interested in photography out of curiosity, then this practice took more and more place until becoming his profession.

Since 2010, Dominique has been running his own studio.
He’s been teaching at the International University of Monaco since 2014 and is also teaching at the School of Fine Arts in Menton and at the prestigious Sciences Po school also in Menton, France. He joined the EDAA team in 2018 and became teacher and corrector.

His work is very often viewed in exhibitions in France and abroad. Dominique is also the French ambassador for Phottix and Samyang.

VANITÉ MIROIR

Vanitas was born of a desire to combine Dominique’s passion for photography and his deep admiration for the classical Masters of painting. It is an homage to Caravaggio and De La Tour, these artists who understood how light works and who set a new era in art. These undisputed masters of chiaroscuro not only knew how to depict light, but they also mastered perspective and composition like never before. This science of perspective and of illumination of its rendering on materials, its dramatic side, its modeling and the volumes it highlights is nothing other than a photographic work ahead of times.

Vanitas shows some of the recurrent themes in Baroque paintings combined with an extremely precise composition to remain as faithful as possible to the work of these Masters. The characters are isolated on dark backgrounds, leaving a feeling of closeness, intimacy. All underlined by a precise illumination and an impeccable composition.

This series was technically very demanding. In order to produce images that are faithful to Baroque paintings, several images had to be put together to recreate chiaroscuro specific lighting. Only lit with flash, some scenes needed up to seven images to recreate candle light. Then there was a precise work on color grading. Using painting technics, it was important to respect the specific look of oil painting and reproduce deep shadows and accurate luminosity.

Awards:

  • 1st public prize “PhotoMenton 2015”
  • 2nd place at the Mouans Sartoux photo festival in 2016 and 2017
  • 2nd place at the 2017 Draguignan photo festival
  • 3rd public prize at the Photo Menton 2017 festival

Showrooms

Not a ‘white cube’.

When you step in, you immediately know that’s different.
No one is like another. This is true for artists and for galleries also.

Elsewhere2


Come and see us in the charming Via Giulia at the very center of Rome, IT or in the iconic Biscayne Blvd near the Design District in Miami, FL.

In our galleries, the ultra-traditional marries the ultra-avantgarde. The result is totally unconventional. Certainly not a white cube, but an iconic black’n’red cube, which is our recognizable ‘11 [HH]-lish style’.

“The journey of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in having new eyes” (Marcel Proust)

Photographer for over 40 years, Carlo d’Orta evolved from an initial documentary approach to shots of abstract or metaphysical/surrealist inspiration. He focuses on the essential forms and geometric combinations produced by the interwoven architectural structures in our cities (“Biocities” series) or by the reflections on the windows of skyscrapers (“Vibrations” series).

Biocities Valencia # 23, 2015, limited edition of 3, copy 1 of 3, UVprint on plexiglass with dibond bottom, cm 110x150, price euro 3.400

Lines, intersections, combinations are unmodified in post-production or with a computer. These forms are taken for what they are, as a new urban meta-reality that takes on an almost biological meaning. The architectures are investigated not in a descriptive, but in a “biological” way, exposing the vibratory epidermal structure that constitutes the “skin” of our metropolises.
“Biocities” is part of a wider movement that aims to reconnect the urban ecosystem with the natural one, through direct actions aimed at recreating an environment that is both biologically rich and technologically advanced.

Herman Normoid begins to paint in his full maturity, immediately reaching high levels, especially in informal and neo-expressionist painting. In 2007 he founded the current called Volumism, and edited the Manifesto.
Being reserved, he chose to present himself only through a logo and a motto – “Proud to be Obsolete” – which denounces his ironic spirit and great respect for the art of the past masters.

Herman Normoid works mainly with pure pigments and large spatulas trying to minimize the effect of the conscious part of his mind by freeing the subconscious part. His technical challenge is to make human features with large flat spatulas that do not allow any type of detail control.
In his latest production Normoid creates ancestral graffiti apparently made by dozens of different hands as if poured into a temporal and spatial funnel.

Luca’s talent cannot be confined to a fence. He is a musician-composer for recitals and theatrical work, a professional anatomy illustrator, and a photographer. In his career as a freelance for the prestigious Condé Nast (Uomo Vogue, Maison et Jardin, Vogue Italia, Casa Vogue) he has shooted really everything: portraits, food, interior design, architecture, jewels. Then in 2015 he started working on “synchronicity”: 3d photo mosaics hand cut out, based on photographic family’s memory and photos of cities and landscapes.
Now he is dedicated to “Floors”, a research on road’s concrete, asphalt, and pavements with the aim to “codify the interminable genome of our existence, written on the land on which we walk.”

Floors selezione portfolio - 50

“Floors is my latest photographic research. It is an exploration of our culture, habits, and history, which I stumbled upon while walking on the streets of the world. Roads are a testimony of our existence, an infinite history book that transcends down generations the violence, accidents, beauty, and complexity of humankind better than any monument ever will. They are a graphic memory of our times; a disorganized archive of our civilization that continuously morphs and amalgamates the ancient with the new.

I started this project a year ago, but I have been looking at the ground my entire life, finding extracts of people’s lives, precious treasures, and art. I call it “Floors” because that’s where we walk barefoot, where we feel at home, and that’s the sense I’d like to transmit with this work about the world. Every street has its own DNA, made up of its unique history and heritage–no two are the same. This work aims to codify the interminable genome of our existence, written on the land on which we walk. All pictures are spontaneous and taken in just a few seconds. What you see is exactly what I encounter, taken simply with my iPhone, on the spot.”

sammartano

Sammartano’s painting was born in the Mediterranean culture, melting light, color and instinct between matter and antimatter.
Antonio makes us touch the dense spirituality of the pictorial materials. He feels the need to sediment, stratify, thicken an architecture made of natural materials and of memory.
