RTISTAR JEWELS is pleased to present, within this special section of the book, the works of established international artists of the contemporary jewellery scene, who have been able to emerge thanks to their talent and their mastery. This collaboration with leading artists in the sector, enhances even more the cultural and artistic heritage of the project, emphasizing the importance and the desire to give the right emphasis to the most esteemed protagonists of international jewellery. The special contents of the 2019 edition therefore want to be a tribute to contemporary jewellery, with the future promise that all the artists involved in the annual project can be supported by international critics and by the most prestigious galleries around the world. Over the years, Artistar Jewels has collaborated with renowned and critically acclaimed artists such as Gillo Dorfles, Philip Sajet, Yoko Ono, Paul Bury and GianCarlo Montebello. For the 2019 edition the Guest Artists presented through the project are the Italian painter Turi Simeti, one of the most representative exponents of contemporary Italian art, the German goldsmith based in London Ute Decker and finally Christophe Burger, French artist awarded by Le Center Européen d’Actions Artistiques Contemporaines. Although differentiated in the favourite goldsmith technique, artistic movement and message, these three exponents of international contemporary jewellery boast a career of successes, consolidated by the awards

obtained over the years and by the critically acclaimed awards. The Victoria and Albert Museum, the Swiss National Museum, the Hangaram Design Museum at the Seoul Arts Center and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris are just some of the authoritative venues that hosted our Guest Artist 2019 exhibitions. Innovators not only from an artistic point of view but also technical: Ute Decker has in fact created a new innovative method of processing and twisting gold and silver, thus creating creations of “poetic geometry”. These artists do not simply represent an institution in the art world, but have personally contributed to the diffusion of the artistic jewel. Burger is in fact the co-founder of Aspects, a group of designers who exhibited a their creations for the first time at the Basel International Jewellery Fair. These artist, stand out not only as great goldsmith, but also in other fields of art. Turi Simeti, symbolize the polyhedral personality of the artist, ranging in all the nuances of art. He is indeed, one of the most appreciated and quoted contemporary Italian artists, known across the world for his 1960s outbursts. In this special section, Artistar Jewels pays homage to the life and works of this three important personalities, with the future hope that all the artists involved in the 2019 edition, as well as the six previous editions, embark on an international career studded with prizes and awards, but above all that they manage to reach the heart of an always wider audience.
