A whimsical new art exhibition is set to take the Monaco art scene by storm this Summer. Featuring playful and up-beat paintings of childlike figures against some of Monaco’s most iconic landmarks, the exhibition promises to be a must-see event for art enthusiasts and casual observers alike.

The exhibition, titled "Blue Boy and Red Boy" is the brainchild of contemporary Monaco artists Zoia Skoropadenko and Clem Chambers, who draw inspiration from their own childhood emotions and the thrill of exploring Monaco for the first time. Through their art, Zoia and Clem capture the innocent joy and wonder that they experienced as a child, while paying tribute to Monaco’s transcendent appeal.

What sets titled "Blue Boy and Red Boy" apart from other art exhibitions is its fun. The juxtaposition of childlike figures and recognisable Monaco landmarks is joyous. Red Boy and Blue Boy are archetypes we all recognise with their round faces and exaggerated features, giving them a playful and almost cartoonish appearance. Against this backdrop, Zoia Skoropadenko paints some of Monaco’s most iconic landmarks, such as the Port Hercule, La Digue, and Oceanographic Museum.

The exhibition is particularly aimed at Monaco art collectors and is held in Monaco’s  trendy Art  neighbourhood in a gallery iLa Vitrine Contemporaine de Monaco in Palais de La Scala  right beside the Hermitage Hotel. Skoropadenko and Chambers hope their playful and colorful artwork will appeal to everyone, offering them a sense of nostalgia and wonder that is both lighthearted and meaningful.

"I wanted to create something that would speak to people's inner child," Clem Chambers said. "There is a joy and innocence that we often lose as we grow older, and I wanted to capture that feeling with my art.” Zoia Skoropadenko added “I hope that our works will bring a smile to people's faces and remind them of the magic of Paris and the ‘joie de vie’ of being here."

"Blue Boy and Red Boy" will run from June 1st to August 31th at La Vitrine Contemporaine de Monaco, in Palais de La Scala entrance from avenue Costa. Admission is free 24h/7d, and all are welcome to attend. Don't miss your chance to experience this unique and captivating art exhibition.

Exhibition is presented by The Meloy Art and Circle of Zoia.
