The fifth edition of Art Monaco, the prestigious annual arts fair on the French Riviera, took place last month, playing host to some of the world’s most stunning artwork.

Taking place at the Grimaldi Forum in the heart of the principality, the 4-day event attracted artists from more than 70 international galleries as well as a star-studded guest list.

A number of high profile figures including European royalty and Hollywood stars were present to marvel at over 4000 exhibits, including paintings and sculptures.

“After 5 years, I am very happy to have gained a reputation for being the art fair to attend in the French Riviera” said Johnessco Rodriguez, director and founder of Art Monaco.

“I’m very pleased with the outcome and look forward to doing it all over again, but this time in a larger scale!”

As well as art exhibits, this year’s edition of Art Monaco also hosted an eye-catching fashion show held by Russian-born jeweller Yoka Iizuka. During the show, six models draped in Yoka Iizuka jewellery and haute couture dresses from Maison Legends paraded in front of an audience that included entrepreneur Lady Monika Bacardi, football coach Didier DesChamps

Art Monaco took place from April 24th-27th.
