F1-arts

1ARTS-Logo_

Armin Flossdorf has been working on sports themes for ten years in particular Formula 1. His main technique is acryllics and pencil on canvas. His interest and close connection to motorsports in general and to the Formula 1 in particular naturally lead him to action-paintings of Formula 1 cars. As a consequence racing cars became his object of preference. Soon his “F1-arts” made him well recognized within the motorsport scene. In the following years he equipped VIP-Lounges around race tracks, performed live-paintings and exhibited his art around races and at motorsport events. One of his first big supporters within Formula 1 was Jean Todt, who equipped his F1-museum in Paris with various pieces of Armin’s art. Armin’s paintings are spread all over the world in galleries as well as offices and houses of people related to motorsport.

Having started off in Monaco, his first “Formula One – Fanatic Location” Armin now exhibits his art all around the world, wherever motorsports are involved. In 2008 he accompanied the F1 to Montreal and Singapore, where he exhibited at exclusive F1-focused hotels and performed his live-paintings around various track-side events. Since then, Armin has exhibited in Bahrain, Monaco, Milan, Singapore, Montreal, Austin, Shanghai and Abu Dhabi.

One of his specialties is “Speed Painting” action. Armin finished an entire painting of a car or driver within 15 Minutes, starting with a white canvas. Clients and guests of his exhibition are always thrilled to watch Armin speed painting and showcase his masterpieces in-the-making live.

Dom Pérignon

dom perignon

Dom Pérignon is only available as a vintage. Only the best grapes are selected. Each vintage is unique and reinterprets the unique character of the seasons. Dom Pérignon reinvents itself with each vintage, always taking risks. Even to the point of not declaring a vintage.

In the 17th century, the monk Dom Pierre Pérignon nurtured an ambition to create “the best wine in the world”. This bold and visionary mind even went as far as to earn himself a place at the table of the Sun King, who was won over by the quality of his wine.

Three centuries later, Dom Pérignon perpetuates this exceptional artisan’s vision and work, and he is now considered to be the spiritual father of Champagne. Dom Pérignon vintages are produced using the best grapes on the estate. Each one is a unique creation with a style and an identity which are unique to its vintage: it is down to the Chef de Cave to decide if the vintage will be declared. “If the fruit we have harvested doesn’t satisfy the Dom Pérignon Champagne criteria, there will not be a vintage that year.” explains Richard Geoffroy.

This vision is tangible through the subtle balance that characterizes the House Champagnes – an alliance of ripeness, vibrancy, lightness and intensity – giving the wine the potential to age with suppleness and elegance.

This is Dom Pérignon Vintage, the Plénitude of harmony.
