blues in art

The cultural association La Mela di Odessa promotes an exhibition of contemporary art to raise awareness of art on its territory.


The objective is to promote young artistic resources in the area and highlight their knowledge and sensitivity in the pictorial-artistic field. As H. Hofmannsthal explains, painting transforms space into time and music transforms time into space, the two disciplines are complementary and assert the same language in terms of harmony, composition, color, rhythms, times and spaces. Where the eye does not reach the ear continues. Sound accompanies sight … both senses are capable of creating soundscapes of the soul. The artist, who is a musician or a painter, has the power to give the public a collective and dreamy vision of a world made up of notes and brushstrokes. The cultural association La Mela of Odessa wanted to combine the visual arts with the music section of Blues In Town.


Representing music in painting. How music influences the artist’s soul. Transforming the pulsations the emotions of a piece of music into painting. What a painter sees with the notes of a musician.

As for Kandinsky, the music represented a sort of obsession, the colors represented a chorus that could be fixed on the canvas, “Color is a means of exerting a direct influence on the soul. Color is a key, the eye the hammer that hits it, the soul the instrument with a thousand strings “.
