Mark’s inspiration for this unique commission has come directly from the magnificent recently open Louvre Museum. Abu Dhabi.
On the Bottles you see Mark’s own interpretation of the domed ceiling with its majestic fall of light through the decorative patterns.
‘’Beauty and positivity is an inherent part of my artwork, for me the combination of these very elegant podium bottles alongside the stunning domed ceiling of the Louvre provides a great source of inspiration. It has been a great honor for me to be invited to paint directly onto the podium bottles. The first of its kind.”
