Il Maestro’ Marco Glaviano presents The Portfolios

This winter Space SBH Contemporary Art Gallery is excited to present two special new limited edition collector’s portfolios by the legendary Marco Glaviano.

The first of these special series is the iconic Cindy Crawford Kiss portfolio. This collection of 12 pieces takes the well know Kiss image which is reproduced in all the different pop art colours – and the works are sprinkled with diamond dust.
“The series of Cindy Crawford Kiss is from a shoot that we did in St.Barth in the 90s for Italian Vogue, it is a very simple picture but it is very iconic and also shows a different side of Cindy. Cindy and I have taken hundreds of pictures in St Barth but most were for her famous calendars and too sexy, the Kiss makes me smile and feel good” – MG




The collectors set is designed to be hung as a full wall installation and a limited number are available… additionally a special collectors tshirt of the image has been produced to mark the creation of this new portfolio and a limited number are available in three different colours… make sure you get your KISS this winter. Tshirts can be signed by Marco Glaviano at the gallery on opening night.

Additionally a special Supermodels Portfolio has been produced. This is a special collectors set of 12 pieces which celebrates Glaviano’s classic black and white phtography. “It comprises 12 of the most famous Top Models who I have worked with during my forty years shooting in St Barth, these are some of my best pictures”.
