DREAMSCAPES: One Night Art Event by Antonio Saba

Antonio Saba. The Naiad Nimphs

Prepare to be transported into the enchanting world of Antonio Saba, a masterful photographer hailing from Sardinia, Italy, who currently calls Dubai his home. Antonio’s artistic journey will come to life during the DREAMSCAPES art event, where he will comment on and display his most prominent works.

The pictures depict the imaginary world of Saba through the technique of staged photography or Tableau Vivant.

Antonio Saba. The Woman and the Catfish

As curator Rosa Cascone explained: ” The artworks exhibited come from the fantastic and dreamy world imagined by the creative mind of Antonio and captured by his camera. By emphasising aesthetics, he seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the stillness of the scene in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in our lives. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, express a symbolic and structured image: everything has a role.”

Antonio Saba’s 30+ year career has seen him travel the globe, capturing advertising and editorial photography for the most prestigious international luxury hospitality brands and magazines. Join us on November 9th for an unforgettable evening of art and culinary delight by the seaside.
