ABOUT the exhibition

Stockholm, SE (June 10, 2023) – French painter Alex Colard is set to unveil his latest art series,
“Enūma Eliš: the Babylonian Myth of Creation” at an exclusive art auction gala this spring. The
event will feature a fabulous Fashion Show by Stockholm International Fashion Fair owner Imane
Belmkaddem and her brand Taragalte, musical performances by Swedish Hip Hop artist Calle
Mantefors, and internationally renowned singer Therése Neaimé. High-profile art scene
enthusiasts from all over the world will mingle with Stockholm’s elite for a good cause: helping
children in need.

The black-tie affair will take place on June 10, 2023, at the five-star Hotel At Six, in the heart of the
Swedish capital. The doors will open at 18:00 local CET with red carpet arrivals, followed by an
hour of mingling, and then, we will have a speech, the entertainment, and the rest of the evening
will be dedicated to bidding and purchasing Colard’s latest artwork. Guests who attend in person
will be treated to exquisite sparkling wine and a selection of savory amuse-bouche. There will be
smaller framed artworks available for sale at affordable prices, and guests will receive
complimentary goodie bags with art prints inside among other gifts.

Colard, who has been residing in Stockholm for six years, after a successful career in New York City,
explains his ultimate motive is to raise awareness and help children who might have fallen victim to
the war in Ukraine, conflicts in the Middle East, the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, and
other adversities in life. For the 29-art piece exhibition, from which some of the proceeds will be
donated to UNICEF, to benefit children in need, Colard closely explored the “divine,” and the
concept behind life after death, by contrasting it to that of the origins and meaning of life itself
and the development of humankind, all in relation to finding solace in art.

Having lost his mother at the tender age of ten, the Frihamnen-based artist used the subsequent
hardships he endured as inspiration, not only for the creation of the carefully premeditated art
series but also for the main purpose of the charity he is hosting. “I had a very early awakening in
life, and I had to deal with situations that were complicated, compared to other children,” Colard
recalls. “My mother was a wonderful person, but she also had a very dark side to her. That, along
with her death, really affected me. But art was always my refuge. Now I want to give back, I want to
donate, I want to not only help children in similar situations, but I also would like children to have
the tools and basic necessities to fulfill their artistic ambitions. I want kids who don’t have the
same chances or opportunities as me to receive some help so that if they so desire, they can
escape through art and maybe become professional artists, too.”

Sponsors for the event include BC Clinic, which specializes in treating problems such as alopecia,
psoriasis, and hair loss, and will provide products in the goodie bags with Green Little Heart .com.
They are an online shopping mall with every single imaginable eco-friendly item from beauty to
fashion, from jewelry to relaxing teas. Thank you also to Bords Lidingö furniture rental. For more
