The Y | Yachting Handbook LEONaRdO ViiErA A parisian artist in Mallorca Born in Paris to a prestigious family of international artists, a German mother and Spanish father, made their way to Palma on Boat from the Canary Islands where Leonardo now lives and works. A lot of international artists reside on the island of Mallorca; they come here to work on their art as they have found they enjoy the lifestyle the island has to offer, as its very cosmopolitan, but still keeps its Mediterranean feel. What is the art for you? Art for me is a free way to express yourself; whether its surrealist, abstract, realist or expressionist, this great medium you have allows you the freedom to express yourself in different forms. This does not mean that you change your style, that is personal. It is very important that your work is personal you do not want it to be just a decorative piece that fills museums. Tell us about your art My art is very expressive, obviously I express myself visually. My work is a culmination of creativity, technique and emotion, which in todays society is very hard to find, this process is something that I have had since birth, being that my parents were well known prestigious international artists, and the knowledge I gained from great artists from the 20th Century and before. A great influence for me was the masters of course. My work is not only technical it is very emotional, it has passion and strength, some are more complex than others it depends on the theme and subject. How does an artist see art? It is an emotional experience, intellectual and complex one, it’s very personal. 14 | “Minotauro” 140 x 72 cm, 1-X-1990. Óleo sobre lienzo

It can be happiness through colour, there are some that are more profound and have underlying meanings, it tends to give meaning to their life, using the mediums of paint, sculpture and design. Some artists look for things other than beauty every artist sees art differently. What do you mean look at things other than beauty? There are artists that create a piece of art that is more emotional, grotesque or could even be called a monstrosity, and yet some see the beauty in it. Life is savage and wild, like a lion or tiger, beautiful to look at, but in the end they will rip you to shreds. Is the Art world difficult nowadays? It depends, the art world for me has had all the difficulties and all the joys at the same time, but I feel the level is at its high point now and the market is really strong be it for living or deceased artists, it is much easier to sell art now. If you only had one day in Palma what museums would you recommend that people should visit? There are lots of art foundations on the island such as the Fundació de Joan Miró. The Contemporary Museum Baluard is one of my Favourites (see Museums). Is there a relationship with art and the Superyachts in Mallorca? Yes of course there are many owners that are interested in artwork from the island for their yachts as well as their homes. Most are discreet about their collections and the purchase tends to go under the radar. A lot of clients would be aware of a collection on the island and they would come specifically to see it as they have the means. Are there international Galleries in Palma? Yes Mallorca is very interesting place for certain galleries; the main galleries that have opened are German, for the national market and international market. Not anywhere near the level that we could say in New York or London or Paris, but for here in a provincial city it is still at an important level. leonardo.vieraneubauer “Europa y otros mundos” 97 x 195 cm, 4-IX-2001.
