SOUTHFIELD, Mich., June 1, 2016Park West Gallery, known for fine art auctions on cruise ships, live art auctions in major metropolitan areas and art galleries in Detroit and Miami Lakes, Florida, is proud to present international artist Duaiv.

View 58 new paintings by this renowned French artist during the “Melodies on Canvas” exhibition held June 4 – July 9 at Park West Gallery’s Southfield, Michigan location.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, June 4 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., where guests will have the opportunity to meet Duaiv and gain a first look at this special collection. Light refreshments will be served.

This historic occasion marks the first time Duaiv will hold a solo exhibition at Park West Gallery, and is the largest collection of Duaiv paintings ever offered to the public by the gallery.

“Duaiv’s background is just as colorful as his paintings, including playing the cello for Pablo Casals at age 9 and receiving artistic advice from Salvador Dali at age 23,” says David Gorman, Park West Gallery director.

Duaiv paints bright and cheerful works inspired by his travels and from growing up in the maritime region of France near Bordeaux. He uses various palette knives and tiny brushes to create impressionistic works inspired by artists such as Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh. Duaiv has traveled the world not only as an accomplished artist, but as a renowned cellist.

Duaiv received the Commander of the Order of the Star of Europe, European Foundation Prize, from Prince Henrik of Denmark for his contributions to promoting art. His artwork has been featured in the Cannes Film Festival and on custom vehicles for Lamborghini and Ferrari.

Admission to the exhibition and gallery is free of charge. Park West Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. For more information and to RSVP for the opening, call 248-354-2343 or email RSVP@parkwestgallery.com.
