MOEtreal Presents:  Artist Rio at the prestigious Fairmont, The Queen Elizabeth.

At the top of the 21st floor, the artist will unveil his latest stunning collection right in the heart of the illuminated city.

Rio’s body of works include grand mural paintings of beautiful women, and grandiose collage work of animals, skulls and flowers ornate with thousands of inlaid sparkling crystals.

Following major renovations, the Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth offers a completely redesigned design, marrying contemporary decor and elegant reminders to the golden years of the metropolis.

The theme of Rio’s new collection is the liberation of royalty framed by its protocols. Posed on the perspective of the wall-paper walls of old European palaces, the subjects of the new collection of the artist will plunge you into his universe.

A vision where authority does not escape evolution…..

Welcome to Elizabeth’s palace, by Rio!

Vernissage held Friday April 27th  from 6 to 10 pm.
