An artist from Melton will have the honour of showing his work in Paris later this month, as part of an exhibition which runs just twice a year.
On October 22 and 23, Grant Milne will be exhibiting his artwork, a portrait of actress and model Cara Delevingne, at the Carrousel du Louvre, an underground shopping mall in the French capital.
Art collectors travel from far and wide to its exhibitions to find artwork by both new and established artists, and to meet them.
Grant, 26, said: “My focus as an artist is to be always looking at contemporary and classic art values and what better place to be exhibiting my work at then the Art Fair Art Shopping in Carrousel du Louvre.
“I am really excited to be showcasing my artwork to an international art market, and also the fact I will be alongside other great artists, which will give the chance to learn and develop more. Hopefully, showcasing my art will grow my reputation as an artist and I will gain some exciting commissions in the future.”
Grant is being represented by PAKS Gallery, a gallery for contemporary art which exhibits all over Europe. PAKS Gallery is behind this particular art fair, with its director, Heinz Playner, having selected pieces from several artists worldwide who use various styles.
The art fair will run over October 22-23. For more information, visit www.artshopping-expo.com
