Clauiano Mosaic Symposium is a great way to gather artists from all around the world and bring them all to Italy to promote mosaic art and to showcase wonderful products made with tiles and fantasy.
The challenge is to take a simple object or, better, an emblem of our land (Friuli Venezia Giulia) and to transform it into an artwork that will tell a story … of the land and, of the materials of the artist..
The final work of each artist will revolve around the object, which shall be interpreted by the artist using their personal mosaic technique.
Clauiano Mosaic Symposium is the right opportunity for the artists to test themselves, always relying on the support of Maestro Menossi and other participants. Our aim is to encourage all artists to outdo themselves and to create the most original artwork they have ever produced in their career. The Symposium is not a simple art laboratory, but a real occasion to grow up together, professionally and personally.
The artists are invited to challenge themselves, to improve artistically, to live an intense personal experience and to make their personal contribution to the world of contemporary mosaic.
