Born in Santa Clara in Cuba in 1989, Luis E. Toledo‘ work opens a door to a dreamlike magical world, where he creates a parallel universe, a personal reflection of reality. The characters living there emerge from a personal unconscious state, converging in this esoteric world where they have conflicts, express their different ideas in their own language, have traditions and goals; all based on their individual essence. “Not satisfied by the world we live in, I create a surreal refuge that helps me face everyday life…For me, every piece is a representation of a living memory. I remove organic and physical presences from my world and transfer them into this magical place as a creative recourse”.
Luis believes that the influence received during childhood and throughout the years is relevant for one’s personal growth. As a child, he saw his father study the great artists from the Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque among others. At the same time, his imagination expanded seeing his mother giving life to characters from short stories and comic books. As an actress performing in children’s theaters, her ability to communicate through puppets and marionettes foster Luis’ need to find spaces beyond reality. His grandmother’s children’s stories also influenced him; in them, we often held the leading roles. The series “A dream within a dream” births these characters by connecting ideas from the artist’s imagination with their own thoughts and desires.

11 [HH] is extremely pleased to announce its official debut on the NFTs market, in partnership with Mintersmarket.
This is a significant step towards the future, which sees the demarcation between physical and digital (“phygital”) gradually thinning in terms of ownership and enjoyment of an asset, blurring the lines between real world and virtual world.
True to our long-standing vocation, we are proud of pioneering the change.
A lifelong lover of the image, Dominique got her first camera when he was 15 years old. He became interested in photography out of curiosity, then this practice took more and more place until becoming his profession.
Since 2010, Dominique has been running his own studio.
He’s been teaching at the International University of Monaco since 2014 and is also teaching at the School of Fine Arts in Menton and at the prestigious Sciences Po school also in Menton, France. He joined the EDAA team in 2018 and became teacher and corrector.
His work is very often viewed in exhibitions in France and abroad. Dominique is also the French ambassador for Phottix and Samyang.
Vanitas was born of a desire to combine Dominique’s passion for photography and his deep admiration for the classical Masters of painting. It is an homage to Caravaggio and De La Tour, these artists who understood how light works and who set a new era in art. These undisputed masters of chiaroscuro not only knew how to depict light, but they also mastered perspective and composition like never before. This science of perspective and of illumination of its rendering on materials, its dramatic side, its modeling and the volumes it highlights is nothing other than a photographic work ahead of times.
Vanitas shows some of the recurrent themes in Baroque paintings combined with an extremely precise composition to remain as faithful as possible to the work of these Masters. The characters are isolated on dark backgrounds, leaving a feeling of closeness, intimacy. All underlined by a precise illumination and an impeccable composition.
This series was technically very demanding. In order to produce images that are faithful to Baroque paintings, several images had to be put together to recreate chiaroscuro specific lighting. Only lit with flash, some scenes needed up to seven images to recreate candle light. Then there was a precise work on color grading. Using painting technics, it was important to respect the specific look of oil painting and reproduce deep shadows and accurate luminosity.

When you step in, you immediately know that’s different. No one is like another. This is true for artists and for galleries also.
In our galleries, the ultra-traditional marries the ultra-avantgarde. The result is totally unconventional. Certainly not a white cube, but an iconic black’n’red cube, which is our recognizable ‘11 [HH]-lish style’.
PLEASE NOTICE: ROMA SHOWROOM IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED.
“The journey of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in having new eyes” (Marcel Proust)
Photographer for over 40 years, Carlo d’Orta evolved from an initial documentary approach to shots of abstract or metaphysical/surrealist inspiration. He focuses on the essential forms and geometric combinations produced by the interwoven architectural structures in our cities (“Biocities” series) or by the reflections on the windows of skyscrapers (“Vibrations” series).
Lines, intersections, combinations are unmodified in post-production or with a computer. These forms are taken for what they are, as a new urban meta-reality that takes on an almost biological meaning. The architectures are investigated not in a descriptive, but in a “biological” way, exposing the vibratory epidermal structure that constitutes the “skin” of our metropolises. “Biocities” is part of a wider movement that aims to reconnect the urban ecosystem with the natural one, through direct actions aimed at recreating an environment that is both biologically rich and technologically advanced.
