Art + Music

"Art is how we decorate space, music is how we decorate time."

I don't know about you, but my life has a soundtrack! That anthem that reminds me of my teenage years, a special melody that I listen to on repeat endlessly, or that song that I share with my partner, you know “our song”.

Jean-Michel Basquiat's Urban Rhythms

Our team has prepared a selection of works by artists whose pieces are significantly influenced by various music styles. These pieces are a kind of visual language that responds to music.
