Beirut is set to witness a unique exploration of the works of a talented British artist, David Cottingham.

“Visions of Dualities” will take place at Villa Paradiso in Gemmayze from the 17 to the 22 of December.

This dynamic exhibition of new work reveals the harmony and duality of vibrant colour and intricate rhythm of lines. From mirror image diptychs to paintings and drawings that intermingle, each piece is a potent reflection that showcases movement, nature, patterns, light, life and mythology. This marks VC Art’s second exhibition that showcases David Cottingham’s fresh style. The first was in London and it amassed significant acclaim. In fact VC Art has been behind many successful shows in Beirut, London and Dubai. VC Art represents promising international emerging artists and gives them the space and support they need to grow, develop and progress. Dedicated to making art enjoyable and accessible for all, this latest show celebrates the power of visuals.

Modern House by Mim Design | Residential Design






The owner of this Brighton house required an interior that reflected the geometry of the building’s architecture. To achieve this brief, Mim Design undertook full planning, interior architectural design and decoration.
