MIAMI, Nov. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — World-class designer and master jeweler, Christopher Slowinski will feature selected paintings, for a limited engagement, at GLO Gallery during December, premiering at Miami’s Art Basel through December 30, 2019.
Slowinski’s technique and style has been described by some as “Impasto”, a technique which dates back to the 17th century and was favored by such artists as Rembrandt and Diego Velazquez. He rounds out his style with elements of “blending” and “Alla Prima”. Slowinski’s works are either original or done in very limited edition in his preferred medium of oil-on-canvas, and they often feature a pastel color palette with a “maximalist” approach. Subject matter abounds with elements and scenes from New York City – the place he has called home for the past 43 years. Additionally, reflections and vivid dreams also serve as subjects for his work.
Slowinski is also an award-winning jewelry designer, diamond cutter and founder of Christopher Designs, a jewelry brand which is distributed via high-end retail jewelers across the US and abroad. The brand is known for its meticulous craftsmanship and design, and most importantly, for the CrisscutÓ and L’Amour CrisscutÓ patented diamonds that provide superior sparkle and brilliance and a 35%-60% larger silhouette size than generic diamond cuts. Born in Poland, Slowinski apprenticed under master jewelry craftsmen before coming to the US and founding his own company.
A passion for painting led Slowinski to establish CS Fine Art as another outlet for his creativity. A prolific painter, Slowinski is particularly fascinated by variations of lighting, hues and shadows, juxtaposed against the static geometric symmetry encountered in many cityscapes. He likens his artwork to his jewelry designs, often describing them as “gemstones on canvas”.
To set up an appointment, or for more information on Slowinski’s work, please contact Marc Weissman, CCO/Glo Creative at (786) 353-7746, (786) 623-3911 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Ahead of the Broadway Opening of Lempicka The Longacre Theatre Is Showcasing Art Work By Tamara de Lempicka
The Longacre Theatre (220 W 48th St.), soon-to-be home of the sweeping new musical, Lempicka, is showcasing a curated selection of renowned artist Tamara de Lempicka’s most famous works. Eschewing traditional theatrical front-of-house advertising, the Longacre’s façade now boasts prints, creating a museum-quality exhibition right in the heart of Times Square. The musical opens on Broadway on April 14, 2024 at the same venue.
The Longacre’s outdoor exhibition includes works of Self Portrait (Tamara in a Green Bugatti) (1929), Young Girl in Green (1927), Nu Adossé I (1925), The Red Tunic (1927), The Blue Scarf (1930), The Green Turban (1930), Portrait of Marjorie Ferry (1932), Portrait of Ira P. (1930), Portrait of Romana de la Salle (1928), and Adam and Eve (1932).
Starring Eden Espinosa and directed by Tony Award winner Rachel Chavkin, Lempicka features book, lyrics, and original concept by Carson Kreitzer, book and music by Matt Gould, and choreography by Raja Feather Kelly.
Spanning decades of political and personal turmoil and told through a thrilling, pop-infused score, Lempicka boldly explores the contradictions of a world in crisis, a woman ahead of her era, and an artist whose time has finally come.
