THE FUTURE MEETS THE PAST IN THE PRESENT

A journey from ancient miniature art, through the last four centuries of art, and into the extraordinary work of Rama King Nash and other modern artists

A SERIES OF PAINTINGS BY RAMA KING NASH INSPIRED BY APOLLO TO APOLLO

In the last four centuries, many artists and philosophers have collected and cherished the miniature art form from ancient times. Several contemporary artists were inspired by the motifs and style of this miniature art: from Eugene Delacroix, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, André Breton, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí,... to Rama King Nash.

In 2014 Rama King Nash accepted the challenge of interpreting Apollo to Apollo into a series of paintings “The Future meets the Past in the Present”. The first painting he created for the serie was inspired by the theme “The divine and eternal beauty” and it turned out to be an breathtaking work of art entitled “Painting is eternal”. He continued his impressive work with the interpretation of other “themes” related to the ancient miniature art: evolution, mystery, history, adventure, culture/civilization, meaning of life, the sacred gifts, Mount Janus, the tree of life, the magic of life, etc. Rama has also created all the unique illustrations that represent Apollo to Apollo.

Sadly, our very dear friend and incredibly talented artist Rama passed away in 2018 and could not continue his valuable contribution to Apollo to Apollo.

RAMA KING NASH

Rama King Nash was a contemporary artist born in Mexico City in 1976.
He was Danish and Mexican and lived in Copenhagen since 1997. He worked with painting, engraving, enamel and installation at his studio in Frederiksberg.

Rama exhibited in Denmark and abroad in countries like Sweden, Mexico, Peru, France, Monaco & Greenland.

It was a true honor and a priviledge to have met and worked with Rama King Nash for so many years. Sadly, Rama passed away in October 2018. His friendship, incredible talent and enthusiasm are very much missed.
All honor to his memory.

“He whom the gods love dies young.”
Quote by the Greek dramatist Menander approx. 342 – 291 B.C.

“I have studied the works of the greeks and the celts and i have tried to find their most basic elements, combine them and through that open a window to the past as well as to the ancient view on life, values and aesthetic. It has been a journey through the archetypal. It is impossible to stop thinking about the magnitude of the skills of the ancient artists. In addition, despite our technological achievements, contemporary art is not always better, innovative or as free as we think, just different. ”
