BAROQUE BLUE Ionian Art Residency & Wild Experience

PrimoPiano Special Projects

With Funding
Nardò, Italy


Artists working with any media are welcome. We look for works with an organic and plural aesthetics identity which tell a story of quality, reviling portions of nature, through reinterpreting and regenerating with the concept and expressive style of the artists. By tapping into the intrinsic intelligence, design and beauty of nature, artists return home as stewards of ecology, stimulated to protect and educate others with their work.
