"When Artists Come Together in One Place the Possibilities are Endless. Dragon Art is set to emerge on the world scene as a modern legacy platform."
Paul Moynan, CEO Dragon.
On November 22nd a unique and groundbreaking art exhibit opened at the Kempinski Hotel in Estepona in Southern Spain. The exhibition has been brought to the Costa Del Sol by Adam Sargent and our very own Dragon Art founder and former Royal Marine, Paul Moynan.
The recently launched Dragon Art blockchain platform connects artists to a worldwide audience as well as allowing swift, secure purchases for the art collector.
Music legends-turned-painters Brian Travers from UB40 and John Illsley from Dire Straits flew in to the Costa del Sol for the star-studded rock and roll launch of their paintings opened by the Mayor of Estepona in the Kempinski Hotel's unique art gallery.
Among the paintings on display is album art by Brian and John who, in recent years have swapped their saxophone and bass for paint brushes. Both painters went to art school before becoming award-winning musicians with their hugely successful bands. Art took a back seat. Until now.
The result is an exhibition showcasing 20 paintings from their collections. In a tribute to the victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, Brian Travers has painted the cover for UB40's 40th anniversary album called For The Many. John Illsley unveiled the proof of his painting of an abstract guitar which featured on the 2008 Dire Straits album Beautiful You.
All the artwork on display can be bought using Dragon Coin - the world's number one coin for entertainment. To find out more about the art on display at the Kempinski Hotel and how to purchase the pieces visit www.dragonart.io.
The free exhibition continues until January 10th 2019.
