With this biennial I want great brains unite the art world in one space and show the works of art from constantly flowing ideas in the minds of these artists, I am sure that several artists of our Cannes Biennale will create more fascinating works of art and inspire this world with their art and in their minds people get stuck with their artworks and their names.

The genius of the art scene Pablo Picasso, who lived for years in Cannes, was concerned with peace and man.

The well-known personality Pop Art artist Tanja Playner, who was born in Russia and lives in Austria, also deals with forms of peace such as love, inner freedom and communication between people. In some of her projects Tanja Playner is committed to a clean and beautiful world with a lot of understanding and love between people. In Cannes, the artist presents her new project, which draws attention in its distinctive Pop Art style on the relationships between people and the contact with nature. "I want to give people not only more joy through my art, but to cheer themselves up and to answer for themselves – what are you, is there anything else to improve in you, because the pursuit of improvement is a positive improvement. Happy people is our future, not only do we have to burn time together in the struggle, but we must look to each other with more love and understanding, and that is my job as an artist – through my Pop Art art and philosophy of life to cheer people up "- says Pop Art artist Tanja Playner.

The Biennale will feature art by the Swiss artist FANT Wenger. In his artwork FANT Wenger unites technology and nature. He sets accents on an informative world in which one seeks the right frequency. But do we also find a proper frequency for nature that allows us to communicate properly with nature? Or with each other? It shows the beginning through nature, the transformation of the world through technology and the search that will further change our world.

In the Biennale, the theme of communication between man and nature will be enhanced with works of art by Lisa Levasseur from Canada. Lisa Levasseur shows her approach to recycling through the arts. The topic of nature is very close to her, as she also lives in Canada in a nature reserve and runs a recreation center there. This closeness to nature inspires people to think about the consumption of plastic. The artist uses plastic bottles for her artworks. What comes out of it will be experienced by visitors to the Biennale.

The artist Erica Fromme from Germany does not only deal with colorful colors, she also builds elements of her past in her artworks, such as old Murano rings, parts of dishes, even a bridal bouquet of her friend, little dolls from different countries, but also handmade wooden dolls. Her artworks are like explosion of positive emotions and memories. Erica Fromme wants to make people aware that we are not turning ourselves into a throwaway society. "Perfectionism is out and destroys all creative action." Art is always a piece of contemporary reflection, color is more than words, creativity is free of constraints, it is the only way for an artist to truly unfold and transmit all of his joie de vivre to the viewer around him To convey energy and feelings of happiness "- says Erica Fromme.

The Biennial will take place from 17 to 19 May 2019 in Cannes Palace.
