Mario Basner to exhibit at La Biennale di Venezia https://www.mariobasner.com/blog/2018/4/VeniceBiennale Mario Basner is one of thirty artists worldwide selected this year to exhibit at the Venice Biennale in Italy.

With an unexpected depth and an extraordinary liveliness Mario's artworks create a mesmerizing dynamic between the image and audience.

The "Time Space Existence" Exhibition in Venice, Italy is hosted by European Cultural Centre & Global Art Affairs (GAA) foundation. Time, Space and Existence are the most fundamental themes of mankind. The exhibition aims to acknowledge that all human discoveries and achievements, be it in science, art or any other discipline, should lead to a greater awareness about our existence, the existence of all matter and our position within time and space. Architecture, of the past and of today, forces us to consider and reconsider.

Architectural photographers have the power to capture this Space in this Time in our Existence, they can document the status and society we live in and additionally, as for architects, they have many different points of view and approaches. The exhibition will illustrate the influence of architecture in a wider sense in our daily life, and therewith in our human existence.

It is a tremendous honor to be selected for the Venice Biennale and plans are underway to exhibit Mario's works in Italy 2019/2020.

"World Heritage Collection" Recognized https://www.mariobasner.com/blog/2017/4/-world-heritage-collection-recognized Art is born out of passion. Fine Art photography is a perfect instrument, which allows a person to communicate with the world and share their vision. It results from the author's deep sensitivity, a need to express feelings through image, a unique view of the surrounding reality. It can be spontaneous, but it can also be a conscious and deliberate manifesto.

The Fine Art Photography Awards London once again celebrates Mario's work. This year over 6000 participants from 89 countries took part in the FAPA competition. An expert panel of international judges recognized works from the "World Heritage Collection " with 4 awards.

Metanoia Magazine Features Mario Basner's Art https://www.mariobasner.com/blog/2016/11/metanoia-magazine-features-mario-basners-art "It's incredible to see my art on the cover." says Mario. "Thank you Metanoia Magazine for such a tremendous honor!"

The Executive Summary reads:

Our feature story is about Mario Basner. His art graces the cover of Metanoia Magazine. Basner is one of those unusual people who gets up one morning and completely reinvents himself. His is a magical story, for all those who are tired of how mundane life is - and really want to change it. As a former drummer in a band - one would think that basner with all the adulation of his fans already had an exciting and rewarding life - but there was something else he desperately wanted to do - and that was to capture the beauty of our past edifices and structures as they faded into the art of dreaming as nature captured them in their embrace. To say that the art of Basner is unique is not to give enough credit. All who cast their eyes on his magic are enraptured by its surreal aura. Photographs of his art do it no justice. Seeing is believing - and more than that, feeling the experience - being there and absorbing the ambiance. His is a truly remarkable art - an art that is spiritual and life changing. Basner will be showing his work at different venues commencing late this year. He welcomes you to visit.- written by Hank Leis.
