John Connolly said: “There is a child in every adult’s heart.” The purity and splendor of a child’s world always has its own magic that touches people’s hearts. And painting is one of the paths that can best break the boundaries of reality and perceive children’s world. On June 1, 2019, Maserati’s first urban exhibition hall in the country officially settled in Shanghai Lujiazui Center. A unique children’s painting exhibition also kicked off here, bringing everyone into the world of “children’s paintings” created by imagination.
The theme of this art exhibition is “Building Dreams at Sea • Children’s Paintings”. Each painting is selected from the families of Maserati owners and employees, and is drawn by children aged 6-15. Through the sensory feast created by the little painters with colors, lines, light and shadows, Maserati opens up a dreamy space woven by curiosity, imagination and creativity, and childlike innocence is the only admission ticket.
Stepping into the Maserati city showroom, you will see the beautiful figures of the Quattroporte executive sedan, Levante luxury SUV and Ghibli sedan. 23 children’s art paintings full of innocence and imagination are hung on the surrounding walls in a patchwork manner. No matter oil painting, watercolor or sketch, they are full of stories, as if they are in the fantasy world of children. Here, there are roosters with long necks, crazy great white sharks, green-eyed kittens and little girls in dreams. Even a few small melon seeds have their own stories. Painting becomes a language, expressing the inner world of the painter and the viewer. Using painting as a mirror, adults can see the past here, and children can glimpse the future here.
As the organizer of this art exhibition, Maserati’s relationship with art is not accidental. This century-old car brand born in Italy, the country of art, has always been adhering to the original Italian design aesthetics and high-quality craftsman design thinking, and is committed to creating car artworks with both aesthetic appeal and ultimate quality. Since entering China 15 years ago, Maserati’s series of high-quality models and the concept of artistic life it advocates and conveys have become more and more well-known to more and more people, and have won the support of a large number of urban elites.
Art has injected the most vivid color into the connotation of the Maserati brand, and it also permeates the daily life of Maserati owners. And now, the spirit of art has been extended to the children of the Maserati family. Through continuous cultural and artistic edification and influence, children are given more stages to display their imagination and creativity, which is exactly the original intention of Maserati to hold this event. “Children are the future, where dreams lie, and the treasure that the Maserati family wants to protect the most. In the future, we will continue to pay attention to the growth of children and provide these lovely children with more stages where they can show themselves and communicate with art.” Maserati Said the head of the brand.
“Maserati has always been an advocator of high-end artistic lifestyle. We not only provide communication opportunities for Maserati car owners, but also hope to pass this artistic life atmosphere to car owners’ family, life, circle of relatives and friends, etc., for more people who love art, It provides a platform for dialogue and exchange for people who resonate with Maserati’s artistic life philosophy. Maserati will present more surprises in the art field in the future.”
